5 Easy Women’s Day Gifts

5 Easy Women’s Day Gifts -  august hoy

Women’s Day is an iconic, historical day marking the great women’s march to the Union Buildings in 1956 in which over 20,000 women participated to protest the carrying of pass books. Today, over seven decades later, the day is still celebrated to commemorate the strong women in our lives today.

Even though Women’s Day is not celebrated the same way as Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day or other special holidays it still serves as an excellent opportunity to show the special women in your life what they mean to you.

We have put together 5 easy gifts that are perfect for gifting to those special women in your life this Women’s Day.

1. Book by a Female Author

Reading is a pastime that is loved by many and, since we are currently in mid-winter, there is no better way to spend a chilly evening than snuggled up with a hot cup of coffee and a good book.

That being said, what better gift for Women’s Month than a book written by a female author? Visit a bookstore near you (or shop online) and browse the latest female bestsellers.

You can even buy a box of coffee sachets to add to the gift!

2. Makeup Bag

A makeup bag is an essential for any women. Whether you use it to store makeup, tissues or help keep your handbag organised, a makeup bag is an underrated gift.

Depending on the personal preferences of the lady of the hour, you can always add in some special extras like a lipstick, some nail polish or even a chocolate for those emergencies!

She will be sure to think of you every time she opens up her handbag.

3. Jewellery

Shopping for jewellery is not everyone’s cup of tea mostly due to the stereotypical high costs that are associated with buying jewellery. While these stereotypes do stand to reason, there are options for more affordable jewellery such as making something yourself.

If you are not really into DIY projects, it can also be fun to invite the women you have in mind to the mall and shop for a meaningful piece of jewellery together like a bracelet or a pair of earrings.

Not only will she remember the gift but also the time spent together.

4. Treat Her To A Day Out

Gift shopping is not for everyone and that is okay! Sometimes the best gift that you can give someone is time spent together. Treat your special women to a coffee and dessert at her favourite coffee shop or some pizza at her favourite restaurant.

Either way she is sure to appreciate the sentiment and who doesn’t love free food?

5. Painting and Wine Evening

Feeling creative?

Grab a bottle of wine, some canvas, a few brushes and some paints and invite the women in mind over for a night of wine and painting. Even if you aren’t the most creative of souls, you will have a fun night and a painting to commemorate the occasion.

And a little wine never hurt anyone either!
