Gift Guide: Women in History

This gift guide is all about women in history. The original nasty women who continue to inspire us today.

A Cool Tee from Design By Humans

I love these shirts from Design by Humans! I chose to feature a Frida Kahlo shirt, a shirt with iconic women throughout history, and a shirt featuring great women of science. They’re all available in multiple colors and styles, including shirts for men and kids, so head on over and grab one!

A Cool Tee from an Etsy Seller

I’m a long-time fan of Etsy and these tees are the coolest! There’s the Founding Mothers tee, the Harriet Tubman “Courage” shirt, and last but not least, Rosa Parks’ mugshot shirt.

A ‘Women in History’ Print

These prints slay me. I love them so much. Each features a group of iconic women from history. From Cleopatra to Sally Ride, so many amazing women are represented! You can snag Women in History I, II, or III at Satrun Twins’ Art Shop. (They even offer all three for $45!)

A Mug From The Unemployed Philosophers Guild

Have a Brontë or Austen fan on your gift list? They’ll love these mugs! The Brontë mug features quotes from the works of the Brontë sisters while the Jane Austen mug features quotes from, you guessed it, Jane Austen’s work.

An Enamel Pin from The Unemployed Philosophers Guild

I featured a few pins from The Unemployed Philosophers Guild in my art history gift guide and I had to include a few here! Choose from Frida Kahlo and a monkey, Margaret Sanger and a birth control pack, and Jane Austen and books. At around $15, they’re perfect for a secret Santa or stocking stuffer!

A Candle from Werther and Gray

I’ve professed my love for Werther and Gray before but I’m going to do it again! Their “History & Nostalgia” line of candles includes Cleopatra, The Virgin Queen, and Suffragette. They have some Black Friday/Cyber Monday specials going on so be sure to check them out before ordering!

A Good Book

If the person you’re shopping for loves to read, they’ll love one of these! I recommend Bad Girls Throughout History by Ann Shen, When Everything Changed: The Amazing Journey of American Women from 1960 to the Present by Gail Collins, and Women in Science: 50 Fearless Pioneers Who Changed the World by Rachel Ignotofsky.

A Shirt from Historical Dream


I’ve talked about this company and this shirt before but I love it so much, I’m gonna keep talking about it! Historical Dream is a woman-owned company that creates super cool clothing and jewelry featuring images of people of color. In this pic, I’m wearing the Elizabeth Keckley dolman t-shirt (legit the most comfortable shirt I own.) Be sure to check out the entire shop!
