I always considered myself a “tomboy” when I was in middle school. I HATED skirts, never did my hair, and only wanted to hang out with boys. Honestly, I think I took it way too seriously. The older I got, the more and more I realized that being a “tomboy” just meant that I wasn’t really into the typically “girly” things that my sisters were into. And that was fine!
As soon as I got to high school, I did sort of change my view and became a little “girly” but TBH, you should dress and act however you want to, no matter what you identify as. Sure, the term “tomboy” is a little silly, but it just means that you don’t want to give into typical gender stereotypes. I know, I don’t mean to get all preachy here. The point is that you should express yourself however you want. And some people like to be like tomboys!
If you consider yourself a tomboy, then you might be struggling to figure out what you want for the holidays this year. There is a lot you could ask for, but you want to make sure it’s something you would really use, right? So, if you’re a tomboy, you should ask for these gifts this year. Or, you could give them to the tomboy in your life. Whatever you want! I promise, you’ll love these.
Joggers are comfy and fashionable, which makes them the perfect not-so-girly look for anyone. You can pair them with basically anything, which is why they are so versatile.
Everybody loves music, right? No matter what your taste is, speakers are a great way to amp up your musical vibes.
3. Phone Case
A phone case is a great way to show off your personality. There are so many designs out there, and each one can help you ~express~ yourself.
4. Loot Crate
Listen, Loot Crate is cool. I had it for a while and it was awesome. It’s a subscription service that sends you a package of cool “geek” gifts every month, like Harry Potter merch and video games.
5. Long Sleeved Tee
Be a bad ass, with a ~soft~ side in this cute but edgy tee, perfect for any tomboy.
6. Tomboy Tee
If you would rather be more upfront with your tomboy life, get a shirt like this. Easy!
Plants are really cool, an a great gift for anyone. They add life to your room, and you can give them cool names. Do people still name their plants? I don’t know. I do though
8. A Record Player
Just like speakers, a record player is a must-have for anyone at this point. Plus, they look cool and retro.
9. A Skateboard
Fun fact: I was in skate club in high school! I didn’t know how to skate though. But, skateboards are fun, so you should try it out.
10. Video Games
I, personally, played a ton of video games when I was in middle school. Obviously, they are a lot cooler and more advanced now, and there are literally thousands of options out there. If you can’t pick one, go with an old-school classic, like Frogger.
11. Boy Brow
If you sort of want to get into makeup, but you’re also a little freaked out, I hear you. Try some low-key makeup products, like boy brow from Glossier. It’s subtle, but a good way to start getting into makeup.
12. A Camo Jacket
Camo has been making a pretty big comeback, and a giant, oversized camo jacket is trendy and bad ass.
Sneakers are also a huge trend right now, since they make anyone look ~fresh~ and cool.
Flannels are just essential to any tomboy. They keep you warm in the winter, and can be worn over jeans or a dress, if you’re into that!
15. Comfy Beanie
You also need to keep your head warm this winter. Beanies are a chill way to do that.
