Another gift guide? Yes! And this time it’s one that’s a little different. Tired of scrolling through “gifts for her” and “gifts for him” that are clearly gender-directed? Well today I’m sharing 7 gender neutral Christmas gifts you can purchase this year.
Hopefully you’ve more or less finished your Christmas shopping. If not, don’t worry, there are still a few days before real panic should start to kick in! I for one am using this weekend to pick up those nice last minute stocking fillers. But I hate that stocking fillers these days are all so gender-orientated. I mean you can pick up nail polishes, face masks, bath bombs… the list goes on and on for stocking fillers for girls. However we were spending an afternoon in town looking for stocking fillers for boys and it was just impossible/ Unless you wanted socks. So what are some good gender neutral Christmas gifts you can give this Christmas?
I mean, don’t get me wrong. We’ve already gone through my Christmas gift ideas for her, for him, and for kids. But sometimes you’re looking for something that would suit anyone, regardless of which sex they are or what gender they identify as. Plus, these gender neutral Christmas gifts make for a great Secret Santa present! It can be tough buying for a mystery recipient, especially on a restricted budget, as most of us tend to think of our gifts as being for men or for women. It doesn’t have to be so.
Since everyone has their own particular taste and style, it can be hard pinpointing exactly what would make for the perfect present. But here’s one way to help take the pressure off of yourself: go with gender-neutral Christmas gifts. You know, something that would be great for anyone. This is particularly helpful for that friend or relative who is *impossible* to shop for but is always hoping for a nice surprise when Christmas Day comes around.
Yes, Christmas Day is just 2 weeks today. And I know from personal experience that social media has been filled with “gift guides for her” and gift guides “for him”. But why limit yourself to just for him or her? There are some awesome gifts out there for everyone regardless, so today I wanted to share my gender neutral Christmas gifts with you.
The gift guides we’ve seen on our own timelines (and yes, the ones I’ve written so far) are quite heteronormative and cisnormative… As I said before, everything is either for him or for her. But what about the man in your life who would love a set of nail clippers and a nail file or buffer? Or the woman desperate for her very own tool box that is not pink?
Fear not! There will be no sign of Pinterest-style jars of notes, or crafts that are going to take you a lifetime to make, in this list of gender neutral Christmas gifts. Also, please note. If your plan is to gift yourself to your partner? Maybe not the most original of ideas. Nor is proposing. Sorry, I said it. Christmas is a special day already, go find another day to make worthy of a celebration.
