March 8th is International Women’s Day. And, there is no better day to show your mother, wife, sister, and girlfriends a little gratitude for all that they do than this. In my opinion, we should celebrate love and relationships and show people close to us that we care, every single day. But, in real life when everyone is so busy, we often tend to take things for granted. Let’s change this for the women in our lives on Women’s Day at least.
Though, before we move on, let’s understand what International Women’s Day really is. Observed globally to celebrate the achievements of women, Women’s day has been observed since the early 1900s. Today, it also marks for action to accelerate gender parity. Just talking about recent times, we’ve seen a new wave rising in the form of the movement. Influential women – actors, producers, directors, walked the red carpets at Golden Globes and the BAFTA 2018 in black to show solidarity and support.
Whether it is our mom, sisters, friends or wives, their unconditional love and support are what make us tick. They are special and should be celebrated. International Women’s Day is all about celebrating these women, celebrating their achievements, honoring their sacrifices and celebrating their uniqueness. So, the gifts should also be unique. Don’t you think so? And, though a gift is too small a way to convey them what they mean to us, it definitely is a way of making them feel a little special.
International Women’s Day gift ideas –
For the independent woman
Every woman needs to own a . It comes handy in so many ways you can’t even imagine. It’s an all-in-one tool – for impromptu beauty fixes like fixing broken nails, trimming a loose hem, untangling necklaces; as a knife for cutting fruits on the go, as a bottle opener and most importantly as a safety tool in unforeseen situations! Here’s the perfect Swiss knife by Victorinox for her.
For the night owler
She’s out and about – sometimes working late and hard and other times partying harder. You can either worry about her safety all the time or get her something for her safety! A with a flashlight that’s small enough to hide in her pocket makes for a perfect gift!
For the one who loves wine
They say ‘if a woman loves wine, nothing should stop her from enjoying a glass,” so why not gift her something that helps satiate her love (thirst) for her favorite drink anywhere, anytime? This may look and sound quirky but it would be one gift she’ll love.
For the hands-on woman
She can take care of herself and she knows her way with mechanical things. Be it drilling a hole in the wall to hang her favorite painting or making her own dresser, she gets her job done on her own. This and she’s going to love it till eternity (or till she decides to upgrade to a bigger toolbox!)
For the selfie pro
She’s on-the-go and she’s a selfie pro. Of course, you can give her a makeup palette but chances are she already has them in abundance. How about thinking differently and giving her a in one? She can perfect her makeup and charge her phone anytime, anywhere! This little thing is going prove to be super-handy.
For the magician in the kitchen
When she is not doing anything else, she isn’t resting. She is in the kitchen, whipping up delicacies. You are confident you are not going hungry when she’s around. Instead, you know you’ll end up licking your plate and your fingers. In the kitchen, she’s no less than a Wonder-Woman. !
For the mom-on-the-go
At work, she manages a team of 10 and at home, two 10-year olds keep her on her. In between, she takes care of the house and needs some ‘me-time’! She has her hands full and all she, sometimes, needs is a coffee that doesn’t turn cold while she’s busy doing something or the other. This no matter how busy the day seems. That’s the least we can do, right?
