As the end of the year approaches, it can only mean one thing — holiday shopping. This year has been a year like no other and activists around the world have stepped up to do their part to help make the world a better, safer place for everyone.
That’s why it’s extra important to show them a little appreciation this year. To do so, we’ve put together a gift guide to make sure every activist on your gift-list gets something special this year.
For the activist who is always running late
Being an activist can be busy work — attending meetings, events, collaborating with others, and more. This, however, often means adhering to a schedule and making sure you’re on time for each and every event or meeting. If the activist in your life is always a wee bit tardier than usual, this is the perfect holiday gift for them — (RED)’s Apple Watch. Not only will this gift help keep your activist punctual for every event, it also gives back to a good cause with (RED)’s shopathon!
For the activist who needs a wardrobe update
Everyone could use some wardrobe sprucing up, especially after this year of loungewear-inspired looks 24/7. For the activist that is in need of some new gear, this ONE t-shirt is the perfect addition to any activist’s wardrobe. Plus, it sends a great message out into the world — “None of us are equal until all of us are equal.”
For the activist who likes to keep up with the latest news
Being an activist means staying abreast of the latest headlines in the development world, which is why The Goodnewspaper is a great gift idea. The Goodnewspaper is just that — a newspaper containing good news and is sure to keep your activist friend up to speed on the latest stories of those doing their part to fight injustices in the world.
For the activist who likes to keep track of their work
Reflecting on your wins and failures is great in any situation, but for activists, it can be powerful. It can help guide their work in the future and ultimately bring them closer to their goal of achieving change. That’s why the Everyday Activist journal is a great gift idea for any activist. This guided journal helps activists find their voice, engage their communities, and enables them to jot down reflections and log their progress in working towards their goals. With a new year on the horizon, this is great for activists who want to kick things up a notch in 2021 or for those who are looking to get started on their activism work in the new year.
For the activist who doesn’t want a gift
Finding the perfect gift can be hard, especially if the person you’re shopping for doesn’t ask for or want anything specific. For the activist who doesn’t want a physical gift, make a donation in their name instead. Making a donation in the activist’s name is a great way to do some good and make sure everyone on your list gets something this year. Just ask your activist about the charity they care most about and give the gift of giving back.
For the activist who is just starting out
Becoming an activist can be daunting, and sometimes it’s hard to know where to start. For the person in your life that is looking to begin their activist journey, the Becoming a Citizen Activist book is a great gift option. The book shares strategies, advice, and stories to empower any first-time activists who are looking for ways to begin making a change.
Activists around the world have stepped up this year to help make the world a better place for everyone, so don’t forget to show them a little extra appreciation this holiday season.
