She’s got words. She knows how to use them. Behold… 6 giftables from the brains and hands of women that harness the power of words to define and inspire.
Fearlessly Authentic Sweatshirt
This sweatshirt is one of our fave pieces from Rawly Bold, a positively inspiring clothing line founded by Pamela Delgado that aims to “motivate and empower” women. The graphics and parts are Made in USA, and it’s hand-printed with non toxic water based ink in Brooklyn, NY. It’s also INSANELY soft and comfy, which is why our fearless authentic co-founder lives in hers.
BADASS (em)POWER™ Laces
She’s a badass who boldly rocks everything she does. She’s why we – Women You Should Know, your fave, go-to digital hub of women’s and girls’ empowerment founded by Jen Jones and Cynthia Hornig in 2011 – made these (em)POWER™ Laces. They are shoelaces, yes, but also a herald of empowerment. Designed to define and inspire, each BADASS lace features this power-packed word punctuated by our trademark woman symbol, “where strength meets heart”. They are made in the USA exclusively for us by a woman-owned company, and your purchase directly supports the work we do.
That’s What She Said
In April 2018, one of our most favorite illustrators, Kimothy Joy, an artist and activist committed to the empowerment of women and girls, released her first book, That’s What She Said: Wise Words from Influential Women. Blending her signature watercolor style and hand-lettered quotes, along with short biographies, this illustrated volume showcases the contributions of more than fifty influential female leaders “whose words and actions are a passionate call to arms”. We proudly have our own signed copy in our WYSKy library.
Inspirational (Fake) Tattoos
From Tattly, creators of “fake tattoos by real artists” and a company founded by Tina Roth Eisenberg, a.k.a. Swiss Miss, comes this inspirational set filled with uplifting words of wisdom. Each of these 8 Tattlys are hand lettered by talented artists such as Jessica Hische, Ged Palmer, and Jen Mussari.
I Need Space Periodically Tank
“Sometimes you feel like you need space. Sometimes you feel like you need to go to space.” This racerback tank top is the brilliant work of woman you should know, Courtney Church, founder of Periodically Inspired. She’s been chemically compounding nerdiness with wordiness since 2010.
WYSK Word Cloud Art Mug
Representing the many different attributes that all women you should know possess, our cloud art, first created and released by our co-founders in 2012, features power-packed words intended to both define, inspire, and empower. Made for your fave caffeinated morning beverage or your go-to evening soother, we can’t think of a better, more inspiring way to start or end your day.
