7 Gifts for the Women in Your Life From Women-Owned Brands (That Are All on Sale Right Now!)
Support women-owned brands, and surprise your friends with one of these thoughtful gifts.
One of my new year’s resolutions this year is to shop from more women-owned brands and this month is a great time to start because March is Women’s History Month and this Sunday is International Women’s Day. If you’re looking to support more women-run businesses, check out these brands for gifts, travel essentials, holiday shopping and more. We’ve rounded up some of our favorite women-owned companies with great gifts on sale right now.
Accessory brand ban.do is known for bold color and lots of sass. And with the maximalism design trend in full force, this design house founded by Jen Gotch in 2008 is about to have its day in the sun. They just had their annual warehouse sale with nearly all prices cut on travel gear, jewelry, homewares and more. But if you missed it, you can still shop tons of items from the sale online. We love this terrazzo-inspired toiletries bag, and at $5.99, it's a steal!
Rifle Paper Co.
You’ve probably seen Rifle Paper Co. planners at stationery stores or Anthropologie and not known it’s from a specific design house. Founded in 2009 by wife-and-husband team Anna and Nathan Bond, the brand specializes in romantic floral prints that remind you of a whimsical garden or an old, beloved children’s book. You can snag this cute notebook on sale for nearly $10. Add it to your cart to see the 30 percent discount, no code needed.
With more and more cities enacting a ban on plastic bags, you can never have too many reusable shopping bags. And Baggu is a great place to buy them. Founded in 2007 by Emily Sugihara, Baggu specializes in reusable shopping bags that are as stylish as they are functional. In fact, they can hold up to three times more than a disposable bag. Plus, they’re ethically sourced and manufactured and come in all kinds of trendy patterns and colors.
Sustainability is increasingly on our minds, and there are more options than ever when it comes to reusable shopping bags that are functional and stylish. Here are some of our favorites.
Alex and Ani
In 2004, Carolyn Rafailian founded Alex and Ani, an eco-conscious jewelry company with signature one-charm bangle bracelets. Today, the company is so much more than bangles, but the original mission to give back is stronger than ever as her Charity By Design line has raised nearly 50 million dollars for charities and causes around the world.
When you think of Parachute, you probably think of their iconic sheets. But the bedding brand founded by Ariel Kaye in 2014 has expanded to homewares, and just like their bed linens, their table linens are lovely! We’re swooning over these grey and navy chambray napkins.
Founded in 2010 by Katia Beauchamp and Hayley Barna, BirchBox is known for its monthly subscription boxes, but you can also purchase single items and mini boxes. These one-time gift boxes are curated by themes like hair care or the holidays, and the “favorites” box is all products with gold-star reviews from BirchBox fans so you know it’s been highly vetted by choosy beauty buffs.
I know baby showers are for important gifts like those fancy sleep machines and a warehouse supply of diapers, but I think every mom should have a Fawn bag. Founded by crafty mom Jenny Wecker, Fawn Design specializes in gorgeous purses and backpacks that are actually diaper bags! These incognito wonders have a pocket and a space for everything and yet still look like a trendy bag that isn’t stuffed with packets of applesauce and hand sanitizer. The company has expanded to smaller bags such as chic clutches with a fold-out changing pad (Yes, really!) and this adorable cross-body circle bag.
