Awesome Gifts for Activist Kids

gifts for activist kids

I’m always looking for meaningful gifts for my kids, and as my son is getting older and seeing me more active in social justice and activism, I want him to be inspired by the stuff around our home. I want to be very intentional about the things I get him, so if I am going to bring toys, books and other things, including clothing, I’d prefer for them to have meaning, and that they teach him something positive, something that is going to inspire him to be kind to others, for example, and that teaches him about the world around him.

So, without further ado, here is this list of gifts for activist kids. I hope you find something here you like!
