The Best Gifts for Feminists 2020: Book Lovers Edition
Book Subscription Boxes
Whether you’re expecting a baby or have an older kid at home (or are gifting for someone who does), you can never go wrong with a solid book subscription box. The Little Feminist subscription lets you subscribe by age, from birth to 9, and each box comes with one or two books, activity sheets, as well as a guide for adults as to why the books were selected. Perfect for young readers of all genders, the box encourages equality and empathy for all.
New subscribers can get a discount of 15% with the code BOOKRIOT.
This rad monthly subscription box curates its goods with input from membership around a certain theme. There are three levels of subscription: a virtual-only membership for discussion and connection; a book-only subscription; or a subscription that gets you both of the above, plus some great treats from small, women-owned businesses.
Even if you don’t choose to subscribe, keeping an eye on the blog and podcast for the Feminist Book Club will lead you to some outstanding new and inclusive reads.
Add more contemporary Black literature to your shelves with this incredible library-themed subscription box. There are a number of types of boxes, including fiction, nonfiction, indie, and YA, and you can get the boxes as book only or with 3–4 awesome library-themed goods alongside your new favorite next read.
