Stuck on some last-minute gift ideas (or perhaps you are like me and haven’t really started shopping yet)? Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered with some holiday gift suggestions for a kick-ass woman you know and/or love. Or to buy for yourself! This is everything the GOOP gift guide isn’t — fun, practical, feminist. and affordable.

Mugs that say fuck

Every time I post one of my collection on twitter or Instagram there are several people who covet them. Whimsical mugs are a great way to start the day, especially considering the two-bit mob boss running our country and the collective assault on reproductive rights. There’s a lot of fucking bad shit right now. Hopefully soon there will be a lot of fucking good shit, so the mug will be evergreen. I think most of mine came from Amazon by typing “fuck” and “mug” into search. Fancy, I know. This article also features some of my favorites (including the one below) with handy info for buying.

Fuck yeah. Need I say more?

I think you can buy it here.


In Intimate Detail: How to Choose, Wear, and Love Lingerie by Cora Harrington

It is a beautiful book and if the person you love loves lingerie it will bring oohs and ahhs without the panic of guessing the correct size. You can buy it on Amazon and everywhere else, but of course if you are strapped for time Amazon does have the prime drug.

A cute t-shirt with an empowering message from Diana Kane English

I love, love, love her feminist t-shirts. I have two and get compliments every time I wear them. Here is a link to her store.

A Clothes Have No Gender sweatshirt

This is from RIGit and it is so unbelievably soft and comfortable and I love it. I wore it to vote this year. Here’s a link. You might consider getting two — my son tries to steal mine ALL THE TIME.

The mug I had made. Maybe I should sell them? If you want to read about the post that inspired it, click this link.

Clothes no gender

A Lelo vibrator

You didn’t think you were getting away without something explicitly for sex, did you?

Just remember fellas, penile thrusting is the least reliable way to achieve female orgasm. A vibrator can really help take things to the next level. Lelo products are consistently high quality and tend to make little noise, which is nice as a jack hammer sound can be, um, distracting. There are so many to choose from. If you don’t think your partner has tried a vibrator before (so sad, but the good news is that can change!) a bullet vibrator, for stimulation of the clitoral glans (the part that you can see that looks a bit like a tic tac) is a nice introduction. There are also couples vibrators to try. Here’s a link.

A pussy dress

I know, right? It’s from Dresslily and is the best $29 I ever spent. Might be hard to get it for Christmas, then again Christmas is the time for miracles. It’s on sale now for $12.12, so you could order it for next year if rush shipping a bit much for a $12 dress? Fair warning, it feels like $12.12 worth of fabric, but I LOVE it. The sizing is also very small. I’m normally a size 8-10 and I bought an XL based on reviews. It was slightly baggy, but a belt seemed to do the trick.

An IOU for my 2019 book, The Vagina Bible

The cover reveal hasn’t happened yet so I can’t share, but  I hope you will love it as much as I do!

Until then, you can print this image out and write an IOU for The Vagina Bible on the back and then pre-order the book in the New Year! BTW this amazing illustration was created by Maisie Mattatall who is a 15-year -old young woman from Canada who is clearly a HUGE talent. I had this commissioned and am going to make it into some beautiful bookmarks.

**** Update, several astute Twitter and Facebook followers alerted me to the fact that my book, The Vagina Bible, is actually now for sale. It went live on Amazon over the weekend (they don’t apparently tell you exactly when). So you can pre-order it now here and still print out the amazing image below with a short note that you’ve ordered the book and it will arrive in August! ***

  1. Commenting on the bread buns is disabled, so it goes here:
    Awesome typo, made me laugh. Autoreplace replaced microwave oven with microwave safe. Too funny. Thanks for the recipe.

  2. Dear Dr. Gunter

    Congratulations on your book, I look forward to it. With the current cycle repeating itself against women your work is so important.
    I have to ask and I am in the medical field; maybe it’s an idea for a post I hope you will write. Goop etc. offers pseudospiritual solutions, but I would love to hear your experience. When something happens that is discouraging or put you in a funk (major life event), how do you keep active, instead of curling into a ball for a month.

  3. Thank you for introducing me to Clothes Have No Gender! I have a 15yo gender neutral child and even the men’s department doesn’t often have the right styles (or fit) for my child. This is fantastic!

  4. Love that dress (but alas probably not worth shipping to the UK…).
    Anyway, we need to shine out the ‘vagina signal’ ….The Goop Summit is coming to London in 2019…..Help!!

  5. Dr. Gunter, these are wonderful ideas! I have the vibrator and LOVE it!! You have GOT to make the mugs!! I have a friend who does them and I’m sure she can make them for you if you’d like to have them made. And….I’m preordering the book!

  6. You’re selling stuff now?! Oh brothers. And to say penile thrusting doesn’t give a woman an orgasm is blatantly wrong.

  7. LOVE almost everything on your list (lingerie – meh!). But I am now obsessing over the pussy dress and so want it for our party on the 24th – and can’t have it!!! Please, can you publish your gift list earlier next year as for sure we will all want all – or most all – of the things on it!
