Did you know that International Women's Day is celebrated each year on the 8th of March ? It’s the perfect day to surprise the women in your life with a small token or gift. In Italy, for example, the tradition is to give a mimosa, a yellow flower symbolising women, but there are many other little gifts that work just as well.
Why do we celebrate International Women's Day?
This celebration started with the first political feminist movements to demand women's rights and soon became a symbol for raising awareness of various women's issues. Today it is mostly an opportunity to remember how hard women have fought over the years and reflect on the state of gender equality.
You don't have to give a gift to all the women in your life on this special day, of course. You could instead use the day to reflect, send a message to someone you care about or support a cause that’s important to you. If you are looking for an extra special treat for your girlfriend or friend, we've put together some great, budget-friendly gift ideas for International Women's Day. Take a look below!
Flowers are a popular choice for this occasion as they are colourful, fragrant and universally appreciated. YourSurprise also offers the option to send your flower gift straight to the recipient’s address and add a free message card. Don’t forget to mention just how much she means to you!
