Suffragette Themed Gifts

Suffragette women lived bold, amazing lives worth celebrating and their stories are worth sharing with the special women in your life.

These themed suffragette gifts are meaningful, inspiring, unique and very fun. You won't find these anywhere else!

Each gift kit combines the story of a famous suffragette or supporter of women's suffrage along with a set of gifts idea, including ideas for homemade gifts too. I'd recommend purchasing or making a minimum of three items to create the theme feeling and you can spend as little as $15 dollars to create these.

Especially great for:

  • 18th birthday to celebrate her right to vote (make virgin drinks, smoothies, or slushies if is for a 18th party or a non-drinker)
  • 21st birthday
  • Celebrating August 26th - Women's Suffrage Day in the U.S.
  • Women's history fans

Tea Time at the Pankhursts

The Pankhurst family - Emmeline, and her daughters Christabel, Sylvia, and Adela were the founders and leaders of the British suffrage movement.

Their incredible family dedication to the cause is a testament to their belief in the power of the suffragette "sisterhood".

Imagine what it would have been like to sit around their dining room table and discuss the idea that women needed the right to vote while having tea?

The Pankhursts were so famous, they even made it into lyrics of the song "Sister Suffragette" from the classic Disney film Mary Poppins. Enjoy the link to the video and see if you can catch the mention of Emily Pankhurst...
