International Women’s Day is right around the corner, so it’s time to express your gratitude towards the incredible women in your life, or to treat your own self to a special day and gift if you are an XX chromosome. This day is all about celebrating and recognizing the social, economic, cultural, political and familial achievements of women. It is also a day to highlight the significant role that women play in society. Check out the following ideas for the perfect Women’s Day gift for your favourite ladies (or yourself!).
1. Spa Day
A day at the spa is the perfect way for women to unwind on Women’s Day. A well deserved deep massage, soothing facial and body scrub will rejuvenate and restore some much needed pampering to the special women in your life.
2. Bath and body care set
Relaxation doesn’t always have to happen at the spa. It also can be easily done and enjoyed from the comfort of your own home, if you gift her a pamper set that contains everything she needs. Choose a set that contains things like shower oils, body lotions and hair masks.
3. Do the chores
If you’re one to depend on the women in your life to take care of you and to look after the household, today is the day to return the favour (though you should seriously do this more often). Take the day to clean the house and do the laundry, and let the women kick back and relax for a change.
4. Sheet mask set
Sheet masks are such a quick and easy way to give your face some TLC. Select a few sheet masks with different functions (like brightening, anti ageing, hydrating etc) that you think she will enjoy and pack it up in a hand wrapped box for her to unwrap.
5. A gift of health
Giving someone a health related gift is always thoughtful and shows her that you care for her wellbeing (and want her to live forever). Think a gym membership, yoga retreat, workout equipment, wearable fitness gadgets and health foods.
6. Cook her a meal
If your special lady has a favourite dish, take the time to replicate the dish as best as you can and surprise her with it. There’s something so special about a home-cooked meal and we guarantee she will appreciate it.
7. A sparkly surprise
What woman doesn’t adore jewellery? Add some beauty to her day by gifting her some beautiful jewellery that reflects your fine taste and shows her how much you appreciate her. A necklace is a good choice because you won’t have to worry about sizing.
8. The ultimate red lippie
Every woman needs a red lipstick in her makeup arsenal because it’s powerful, elegant, timeless and sexy. Rouge Dior in shade 999 will complement every skin tone and give her some luxury every time she pulls it out of her purse.
