Perhaps more than any other year in recent history, this year tested us — our beliefs, our hope, and our ardor for change. Flood gates were open demanding change for the LGBTQ community, for women and for the environment. And because 2018 is gearing up to require that same passion, we've put together a guide of our favorite products for gifting all of the activists in your life. Ampersand Oversized Hoodie by GLAAD for ASOS, $48 from Asos.com: Asos.com teamed up with LGBTQ rights organization GLAAD to create a collection that is comprised of clothing and accessory pieces featuring the “&” symbol, which represents the power of all our voices, together, resisting discrimination and hate, with a portion of proceeds going directly toward GLAAD.
Write to the White House Kit, $26 from Mr. Boddington Studio: For your activist-in-training, this lovely box includes five letterhead sheets, five envelopes, sticker sheets, an informative booklet about the White House with tips for writing the President, and a special pin.
Love Is Love Cross Stitch Hoop, $37 from Etsy: Show pride via cross stitch with this Love Is Love hoop from Etsy artist Bananya Stand. And take a peek at the rest of her shop, which is filled with witty and hilarious designs.
