10 best gifts to give to your Transfemme loved ones!!!
Hey it's Mars here and I am a Trans Artist and Streetwear designer in Los Angeles, nice to meet you!
I wanted to help you get the perfect gift for your Transfemme loved one so I made this gift guide, I hope it helps! Also comment other gift ideas please <3
1. README.txt by Chelsea Manning
In README.txt, Manning recounts how her pleas for increased institutional transparency and government accountability took place alongside a fight to defend her rights as a trans woman. Manning details the challenges of her childhood and adolescence as a naive, computer-savvy kid, what drew her to the military, and the fierce pride she has about the work she does. This powerful, observant memoir will stand as one of the definitive testaments of our digital, information-driven age!
2. TRANS JOY IS RESISTANCE!
My red bowling shirts are unanimously the fav piece of every femme in my life. They always style it with a tank underneath and a cute little tie moment for a very vintage classic babe look!
3. URBODY AKA GENDER EUPHORIA UNDIES
Urbody is a Trans Owned business that specializes in under garments that help with dysphoria and give gender euphoria! With all kinds of styles and options as well as items specifically created for Transfemmes this is sure to be a perfect staple gift!
4. LAVERNE COX BARBIE
We all need the Laverne Cox barbie in my opinion but this is for sure to wow the Trans Women in your life! I remember when I first heard about The Laverne Cox Barvie coming out and I literally ugly cried, never did I imagine a Trans person would be a Barbie, and one who has done so much for our community! Literally so cool!
5. NIMYA BY NIKKI TUTORIALS
Nikki Tutorials, our fav Trans Beauty Influencer, released an entire makeup brand called Nimya! With pallets, kits and more this is perfect for folks who want full glam or even just a little pop of color and you get to support a Trans Woman's business!
6. VIRTUAL TRANSFEMME TRAINER
Book a personal training session with a Transfemme trainer! The Trans Fitness Bitch is so amazing and she can create workouts specifically for Trans Femme bodies! Also since it's virtual you can book her from anywhere in the world.
7. DON'T TALK TO ME UNTIL I'VE HAD MY HORMONES
I made this beautiful mug with my Trans girlfriend because we do our hormone replacement shots on the same day in the morning and we will get a little fussy at each other so she had the idea for the quote and I made the art for the mug! Now every morning we switch who gets to use it because we both love it so much.
8. SOPHIE VINYL
My ultimate fav candles and all their scents are amazing but my pick for your nonbinary loved one would be lavender soy candle, I just feel like lavender is the best scent!!!!
9. VISIBILITY IS VULNERABILITY
I made this piece to talk about what Visibility really means. My visibility has given me amazing opportunities but has also made me unsafe and put my gender and identity up for public discussion. Why do we have to be vulnerable in order to be visible as Trans people? I think the conversation is extremely important for Trans folks.
10. MAKE A DONATION ON THEIR BEHALF
The holidays are a great time to give back, consider donating to a local org, a gofundme or TransSanta this year on behalf of your Transfemme loved one!
