a league of their own gift guide

what to get an IRL kit and dottie.

by nylon

Ready or not, here it comes! Holiday season has arrived, and that means tons of shopping. But let's be real: your average gift guides are boring, so we're going to do things the NYLON way with lists inspired by our fictional dream BFFs. Every week we'll be picking the best gifts for our movie muses, so keep checking back to find that perfect item for your friend...or for yourself. 

Fun fact: You can be tough in a skirt, graceful on a field, and all-around bad-ass even if you hail from a dairy farm in rural Oregon--at least, that's what we learned in A League of Their Own. The 1992 film tells the story of Dottie Hinson and Kit Keller, two sisters who make a name for themselves on the baseball diamond as part of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League during World War II. Their rivalry may get heated, but there's something to love about their sporty instincts and Americana sensibility.

Even if you can't hit a home run you can capture a little bit of their all-star style with our handy gift guide, inspired by Dottie and Kit. Think a perfect pair of overalls, a bandana-print towel, and a digital camera that looks like your grandma's from 1944. Because, just as there's no crying in baseball, there should be no crying on Christmas morning.
