FOR THE YOUNG ONES
It’s never too early to teach the next generation about menstruation; why not start in a playful way? This fun Period Colouring Book is designed by Canadian health coach Andrea Yip, so take out the red colouring pencils and get creative! Price: € 10.36.
This cast sterling silver uterus pendant including pearl ovaries, is made by the Australian medical artist Beth Croce for her Bioperspective label. Her creative and unique jewellery is anatomically correct and is beautifully hand-crafted. Her Etsy webshop is called AnatomyArt. Price: € 358.41.
FOR HIPSTER MEN
Bored with the little green crocodile? Or eager to smash the worldwide menstruation taboo? Then this is the perfect fashion statement! Made from cotton, the sweatshirt comes with a hand-embroidered subtle tampon logo and has been created by Dutch designer label BrainFartsForSale. Available in sizes S, M and L and comes in black, baby pink and of course, blood red. Price: € 45.

FOR MOODY GIRLS
British label Plusheez has designed a wide range of toys themed around periods. Some are cute and cuddly (perfect for the average baby shower) and others are more suited for adults, like PMS-ing women. All toys are handmade out of fleece, plush fabric and with safety eyes. Price: € 27.44.
FOR YOUR PUSSY
(For your other pussy, that is.) The American label Meowadays offers hand crocheted cat toys in various shapes and sizes. This bloody XL-tampon isn’t even one of the weirdest; they also have penises, eyeballs and dynamite sticks. All cat toys are filled with organic catnip and the dog models have squeakers inside with eco-friendly stuffing. Price: € 16.33.
FOR A SMASHING TREE
Instead of baubles, lights and garland, why not decorate your tree with hand painted tampons this year? Don’t feel like painting them yourself? Then order them via Etsy. For instant via Her Designs Shop (prices from €13.96). The glitter tampons that are pictured are from Drotz Run Design in Sweden. Price: €13.50 per set.
