So, why celebrate women’s day? On March 8 each year, the world honours the socio-economical, cultural and political achievements of women. This day also marks a call to action for accelerating women’s equality, with the theme this year, #EachforEqual.
In conjunction with International Women’s Day this year, BloomThis is proud to say that 10% of the proceeds from our Women’s Day gifts will be donated to WOMEN:girls to support the training and advancement of underprivileged women.
Since flowers are the epitome of expression in what we do best, we’ve put together a guide on gorgeous blooms that are perfect as women’s day gifts for women across five exciting industries.
Just like how each woman shines best in her unique personality, so do flower bouquets. So, we decided to match them!
