OUR 2017 HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE:  GIFTS TO INSPIRE

We're thrilled to share our top 15 ideas to inspire your girls this year – from STEM kits to books that empower girls to dream big.

Many of our picks are from small businesses started specifically to give girls options that did not exist (we like to think of them as our kindred spirits in the toy aisle!). Happy shopping! 

 

ACTION FIGURES AND DOLLS

IAmElemental's line of strong, fierce, female action figures lets girls see themselves at the center of their own empowering stories. Lottie dolls are inspired by real girls, and we love the realistic body proportions and awesome range of themes (Wildlife Photographer, Fossil Hunter, Stargazer, Artist, and more!). Go! Go! Sports Girls were one of the first dolls to break the mold, and we love their tagline #AthleteIsTheNewPrincess.

BOOKS AND CALENDARS

Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls is a must-have in every girl's library! Period. We also love the new Little Leaders: Bold Women In Black History, because history books fail to teach us about these amazing women. And our own "Girls In Action" 2018 Wall Calendar will inspire your girl all year long, with photos of girls like her (ages 4 to 15) doing what they love, plus quotes from famous women and important dates in herstory.

MORE "IF SHE CAN SEE IT, SHE CAN BE IT" GIFTS

If you're like us, you jumped for joy when LEGO released it's Women Of NASA set! The "Career Dolls Magnet Set" from Build & Imagine also sends girls the important message that girls can be anything – firefighters, chemists, President, and so much more! And Girls Can! Crate introduces girls to a female role model every month, with a book and hands-on activities.

ENCOURAGE A LOVE OF STEM

YellowScope Science Kits for Girls send the message that science is for girls too! We love that they focus on the real fundamentals of science (vs the many beauty "science" kits marketed to girls). There are so many great, kid-friendly coding toys available this year, but we're in love with the Droid Inventor Kit from littleBits. And one of our family's favorite games to play together (although we admit to being math geeks) is the card game, Krypto. It really reinforces those math skills!

CLOTHES THAT BREAK THE MOLD

We might be biased, but we think clothes make a great gift. For starters, she'll have fun writing her own #GirlPower statement on our "You Decide" Chalkboard Shirt. Our over 25 t-shirt designs celebrate the wide variety of girls interests, from chemistry (pictured) to art to martial arts. And if you haven't seen them yet, our super comfy Pajama Time PJs are perfect for girls who prefer themes like coding over cupcakes.
