These female-empowering gift ideas range from body positive merit badges to coloring books and action figures that celebrate America's first female presidential candidate. When it comes to toys, today's girls are no stranger to empowering products like building blocks that introduce them to engineering and architecture.

Straying way from traditional and princess-themed stereotypes, these products promote girl power and suggest that women can achieve anything that they put their mind to. Other notable toy examples include inclusive dolls and even dollhouses that promote collaborative and educational play.

These female-empowering gift ideas also include products that celebrate a woman's reproductive cycle rather than shying away from it.
