Gifts to Celebrate International Women’s Day

On Friday, March 8, the world will come together to celebrate International Women’s Day, a holiday dedicated to celebrating the social, cultural, economic, and political achievements of women. It’s also a day to celebrate the most important women in your life and thank them for all of their support and friendship over the years. Although a dedicated holiday, even once International Women’s Day has passed, celebrating the contributions that women have made in your life should be a year-round event.

If you can’t decide what to get these impactful women, here are a few gift ideas bound to put a smile on their face and make them feel appreciated.

For Friends

Our friends, although not blood related, are some of the most important people in our lives. They’re the family members that we choose and are always by our side to lend a helping hand. Some of the best friend gifts are small things that serve as valuable treasures representing your friendship.

This International Women’s Day show your best gal pals how much they mean to you with a unique keepsake box depicting your friendship, full of personal mementos. Whatever you decide to put in the box is up to you, but this simple yet powerful gift will warm their heart for sure.

For Mom

Your mother is one of the few women whohave been there for you every step of the way. From reading bedtime stories to you when you were younger and helping you with homework to cooking dinner and even cosigning your first apartment, it’s hard for many people to name a woman more impactful and important in their life than their mom. For all the love and support that she’s given you, you’re probably always looking for another day or reason to shower her with love and gifts, so make International Women’s Day that opportunity.

One unique gift that will show the strength of your relationship is a pair of sculptural figuresdepicting a mother and child. You can find different versions available with figures in various poses and with distinctive characteristics. Shop around and find one or two that embody the loving bond you share and she’ll proudly display them for others to see.

For Grandma

Similar to your mom, your grandma has been there your entire life and would likely drop everything at a moment’s notice to lend you a hand or fix a batch of cookies if you so wished. While shopping for gifts for grandma, you might feel like she has everything and there isn’t much you could get her that would have an emotional impact.

Think outside the box and consider getting her a handcrafted ornament or thoughtful wall plaque. Even though the holiday season has come and gone, ornaments are great wall décor, and once it comes time to put up the Christmas tree, she’ll lovingly hang her new ornament and think of you.
