Celebrate Women with the Greatest Gift of All

As the fabulous Queen Bey once said, " Who run the world? Girls." With International Women's Day (IWD) fast approaching, now is a good time as any to remind ourselves of our achievements as women, as a society and how far we've come. To understand and celebrate this joyous occasion, one needs to know how 'HERstory' all began.

It takes place on March 8th every year, and it was created in 1908 when 15,000 women protested for their rights in New York. It's now an official day globally to celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. According to the official International Women's Day website, this day marks a call to action for celebrating women's achievements, raising awareness for women's equality and accelerating gender parity. In today's day and age, although it is a chance for us to celebrate all women, however, the fight for equal rights continues. While it is important to celebrate women on this day, we also believe that you should always be celebrating yourself, as well as empowering the women around you every day.

If you're the thoughtful and gift-giving type, chances are you might be already planning something catered to each specific lady. Whether it be your grandmother, mother, aunt, niece or your friend, or just someone who had a great impact on your life. It is always an opportunity to brighten someone's day when they receive a call, a handwritten card or a thoughtful gift from you. Something else to highlight is the amazing enterprises gathering together on International Women's Day to give back to the community while also raising awareness of the work that still needs to be done to reach gender equality. Without further ado, let's get on with the amazing list of gifts we've prepared for you and your favourite ladies.

The best gift of all...

Your time. This might seem like a no-brainer. Maybe because it is – we might have neglected spending quality time and having that uninterrupted, precious one-on-one time with our mom, sister or daughter. If you work 40 hours a week, you spend 35.7% of your weekly waking hours with co-workers. This makes for a good time to really think about who and where decide to share your precious time with. Whether it is volunteering in your local charities or NGOs, there are always ways to show your support and standing solidarity to give back to women and girls in the community in need of help.

There is no limit to what we, as women, can accomplish. -Michelle Obama
