Feminist baby gifts for your next baby shower | cool mom picks gift guide

So many parents would be thrilled to unwrap all kinds of feminist baby gifts to welcome their future change-maker into the world. We’ve come a long way from the days that it was hard to find a onesie that said something empowering about women and girls, let alone some of the really creative, unique feminist baby gifts we’re featuring here.

We’re especially pleased that nearly every gift here supports women artists, women authors, women makers, or women-owned shops.

And hey, feminist baby gifts aren’t just for girls! We’d love to raise an en entire generation of kids who believe in equality, equity, and mutual respect, regardless of gender.
