Christmas is just around the corner, and if you're anything like us, you're probably already way behind on your Christmas shopping.

Fortunately, we've made it easier for you with this compiled list of awesome gift ideas for girls and women! 

If you're shopping for a proud woman, a girl geek, feminist, or femme in STEM and you want to support a cause that aims to empower women to be whatever they want in life, then you are definitely in the right place.  

And the best part? You can feel good about giving a gift from La Petite Écolière: for every ten products sold, we donate school essentials and meal programs to one girl in a developing country.


First off, we understand the difficulties in shopping online when it comes to sizing. We offer some alternatives you can work with, though, that are just as great, and you don't have to stress about getting the wrong size!  

The first gift idea is the Grow Your Mind Journal, a special keepsake for any woman to use throughout life. Pictured on the front is a fun illustration of a brain with a tree sprouting from it and the words "Grow Your Mind" beneath. 

The journal was designed to empower growth-minded women to cultivate their garden (mind) into a beautiful reality. It's a great gift idea for anyone you know who wants to spend more time reflecting on their thoughts, emotions, and opinions on life.

Next is the STEM Chic Mug and Phone Case. Designed by a Toronto-based fashion illustrator, Sabina Fenn, the STEM Chic design pattern was created to celebrate women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. The mug and phone case are the perfect matching combo, ideal for anyone who loves a caffeine hit in the morning and appreciates subtle protection for their phone.

Lastly, the Brains Are Beautiful Hat is a must-have accessory, especially for summer. The design admires all women, suggesting that they can have both brains and beauty and that they should shout it to the world. The trendy baseball cap style with minimal detailing is an excellent staple of any outfit while also offering protection for your face and head from the sun.


Did you know that there are approximately 130 million girls in the world who aren't in school? Learning is critical for development and is a powerful asset in breaking the cycle of poverty. Empowering younger women, particularly girls, is more important than ever to ensure they achieve their dreams throughout life and uphold a woman's equal rights.

Our gifts tailored for girls feature fun, vibrant, child-friendly designs to lift their spirits and get them feeling happy and inspired to do more.  

One of our favourites is the classic STEM Chic kid's leggings, which illustrates the same design as the mug and phone case mentioned in the previous section. The mixture of laboratory equipment gives a geeky look to the leggings, which is perfect for any girl aspiring to be someone who can make a positive difference. 

To match, you could pair the leggings up with the Stem Chic Kid's T-Shirt, or try the adorable Dino-Mite design to mix it up.

Another popular design is the Brains Are Beautiful Toddler Tee, which has a soft-colored print and is designed to help toddlers discover that intelligence is beautiful, thus empowering them into their teens and adulthood.

But wait, there's more. Now you can even dress up your lil' precious baby with cute onesie designs! The Future Astronaut Baby Onesie is a classic from The Julia Ravey Collection. This collection was created to show girls that no career is out of their reach, and to celebrate the diversity of women in STEM Careers.

It's never too early to get your baby inspired to dream big!

Don't worry about sizing with clothes because we have a handy size guide for each of our clothing products on our website,  and exchanges can be made if necessary.


Now if you’re shopping for feminist friendly gifts, we've got you covered. These gifts are perfect for smart, ambitious and confident women who want to flaunt their status as a powerful woman.

And hey, if you're just shopping for yourself, we won't judge! We believe there is nothing wrong, and everything right, with a woman treating herself to a well-deserved gift. 

Self care is our 2020 mantra!

For the "girl geek," our Geek Out T-Shirt features a fresh, basic design as a garment essential, suitable for casual wear over a contrasting pair of jeans, pants, or a skirt.

This T is the perfect gift for anyone who needs some encouragement to let their inner geek shine! You never know who you may inspire!

The Femme In STEM T-Shirt is another style classic with subtle feminine detail, making it a versatile wardrobe piece. If STEM is your passion or profession as a woman, own it with your very own Femme In STEM tee. It's soft, lightweight, and cozy as if made just for you.

For the all-round feminists seeking to express their dedicated feminism, there's plenty for you to choose from. The Building My Femmepire t-shirt made in Canada gives budding entrepreneurs or any businesswoman the perfect outfit to show people who's boss.

Given the statistics, only 28% of startups have a female founder, this shirt is the perfect way to encourage the girl boss in your life to keep going and building her Femmepire.

The We Need Education Sweatshirt is our bestseller and a favourite of many students, teachers, and women who believe that every girl has a right to an education.

Our rewrite of Pink Floyd's classic song is the perfect message to bring with you into 2020: with an education and an eye for opportunity, anything is possible!

 With Christmas almost here, now is the perfect opportunity to snatch up some great gifts for yourself or friends. The best part about all of these clothes is that they are made by ethical companies that provide safe and fair working conditions. These clothes are certified by Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production (WRAP), which is a non-profit organization promoting humane, lawful, and ethical manufacturing worldwide. So not only are you purchasing high-quality, comfortable, and stylish designs, you're also supporting women and ethical clothing companies at the same time.

 When you buy from our brand, La Petite Écolière, you become part of the solution.
