For our Female Founder Gift Guide 2023 we pulled together a few of our favorite items for unique and thoughtful gifts this year from fellow female founded companies that we thought you’d love.
Our list is smaller and more concise than the past few years, but our picks from last year are all still so applicable as well, so we highly encourage you to revisit it and shop from our gift guide from 2022, and even our gift guide from 2021 this year again, because most of those items will all still make great gifts this year too!

For family or friends you’d like to get to go a little bit deeper with, Off The Record is the card game for accelerating human connection by embracing small talk as the gateway to unforgettable conversations.

The Price We Pay Book ($34.95)
Nikki T. Anthony’s new book, The Price We Pay, is a YA novel about the price families and communities pay when people remain silent and do nothing to stop racism in its tracks. The Price We Pay, coined the To Kill a Mockingbird of the 21st century, depicts the ultimate price that is paid by those who choose to remain silent, and by those who choose to speak up. The conversation starter of the 21st century will help bridge the gap between races by encouraging and cultivating open, honest, and thoughtful discussions that lead to conversations of the heart and mind. A great gift for a sister or friend- get a copy for each of you and discuss after you’ve both read it.
