A day earmarked by the United Nations to celebrate womanhood, appreciate women achievers, the progress made by women in every field, and bring in a sense of closeness amidst women from across the world, International women’s day is celebrated every year on March 8th. It’s a special day.
It’s a day each person must reflect on how valuable the various women in one’s life are, a day where women must set targets for themselves and reflect on their achievements in the past.
It’s a day everyone should celebrate, men and women alike.
The celebration could be something as simple as cooking up a meal for the special women in your life or penning down your thoughts about what the lady of your life means to you.
If you are looking for simple ideas to make the women around you feel special on woman’s day, here are some:
Buy a bunch of roses and hand them over to the woman around you. It could be your office colleagues or a bunch of friends.
Accompany the rose with a personalized note highlighting one thing you admire about the lady and see her glow with happiness thanks to this small gesture. It’s worth making her smile.
Make breakfast for the women at home.
Mornings are the toughest for most women and they handle all the pressure of cleaning, cooking, organizing, etc without even letting you know.
Let her sleep in a little longer, and cook up a special breakfast for her and the family. Check out these quick breakfast ideas to make life easier.
Women, you can be kind to other women too. Give your house help an off and plan lunch with your girls! Celebrate being a woman, and if time permits go for a foot spa with your girlfriends.
Here is another way women can celebrate Woman’s day. Donate. Get rid of the clutter in your closet and donate your old clothes, shoes, bags, bed sheets and whatever you haven’t used in a while to other women who are not as fortunate as you.
You will feel great since you have done a noble deed, and a de-cluttered closet means more positivity!
A wonderful gift you can give the special woman in your life is a hobby. In the humdrum of life, a lot of women side-line their hobbies.
Refresh their hobbies for them and gift them all that they need to get back to the hobby.
So say if she likes to paint, gift her all she needs including an empty canvas.
If she likes baking, gift her an oven, new baking equipment or simple ingredients that will help her make things she likes.
Pick up the phone and call your grandparents, aunts, teachers and all the women who have made a difference in your life.
They will be touched to know how you feel and while it may be awkward in the beginning, the conversation will remain with them and you for long.
If you are in a position of power, plan a woman’s day celebration in your office.
Celebrate their contribution and if possible appreciate each one of them, highlight their achievements and let them know how much you value their contribution to the office/department.
And if you want to keep it traditional and celebrate woman’s day with your wife, best friend, mother or the most special woman of your life, you must ensure you have a thoughtful and creative gift to give her.
