Let’s hear it for the girls—and their businesses. Fresh off the heels of International Women’s Day, we’re rounding up some of our favorite women-owned businesses and their best-sellers so you can shop till you drop and feel good about it too. From vibrators to quality chocolates, here are a couple of products you won’t want to miss.

1) Dame

We love Dame for so many reasons. Founded by a female power-duo in 2014, Dame developed Eva, the most crowdfunded sex toy in history. As the years have passed, they’ve kept developing best-selling sex toys and standing up for women’s pleasure every chance they get. 

We love the Eva, Pom, and Arc – all vibrators designed to get you exploring and feeling good. The Eva is Dame’s set-it-and-forget-it best-selling couples vibrator. It sits right on top of the clitoris and hooks into the labia majora so you can leave it on during penetrative sex.

The Pom is the brand’s flexible palm vibrator meant to deliver pinpointed pleasure for first-timers. And, for those looking to reach their G-spot, The Arc has got a curved handle and clit-stimulating ridge to hit all your pleasure points. 

All of Dame’s sex toys are 100% waterproof and made of medical-grade silicone. They’ve also got multiple speeds of vibration and different patterns to explore. Oh, and each product comes with a 60-day return policy for store credit.

This woman-owned company believes in making quality chocolate, every step of the way. From their illustrated chocolate wrappings to their unique flavors, and even their donation initiative, Seattle Chocolate has got its community on its mind at all times.

6.) Talea Beer Co

Talea Beer Co
Talea Beer

NYC’s first and only female-owned and operated production brewery is on a mission to disrupt the male-dominated craft beer industry. LeAnn Darland and Tara Hankinson were both avid homebrewers with MBAs who met after leaving their corporate jobs in tech and media to join the beer industry. In 2019, they created TALEA Beer Co, which is a culmination of their love for craft beer and their passion to create an approachable, inclusive beer company. We think its a kick-ass women-owned Business

IPA lovers will jump at all the quality options at their fingertips. The Lunch Date Hazy IPA (one of our favorites), has got notes of pineapple, candied orange and citrus, and bright tropical aromas. It’s super refreshing and has 6% ABV. Of course, it’s got that signature IPA kick to it too. 

For something a little more on the sweeter side, try the Sun Up Hazy IPA. It’s low in bitterness so it goes down super easily. Its dominant notes are pineapple, papaya, and mango, and the hint of milk sugar adds an extra layer of sweetness. At 6.5% ABV, it’s a perfectly crisp drink for all IPA lovers. 

Price: $108+

7) Quim

Quim Serums

Founded by Cyo Nystrom & Rachel Washtien, Quim’s mission is to provide products that deepen your connection with your body and promote healthy routines and healing practices. Quim currently has four products under its brand umbrella. Two are CBD-based, and two are THC-based.  

Smooth Operator and Happy Clam are both CBD-based oils designed for your vagina. Smooth Operator has been crafted specifically for your intimate moments. It’s a latex-safe serum that increases blood flow, promotes pelvic relaxation, and decreases inflammation and pain all in one go. 

Happy Clam has been designed to keep your vagina happy, healthy, and moisturized. It’s an everyday oil that’ll take care of your vagina during menstruation, PMS, after bathing, and before bed. 

Price: $48

8) W&P

W&P Insulated Bundle
