What to consider when choosing a gift for women's day?
Women’s day is all about celebrating womanhood – so when choosing a gift for a specific woman in your life, try to think of something that will remind them of that.
And celebrates THEIR character and personality – what are the things they love to do or what will show them that you appreciate their uniqueness and personality?
Basic gift ideas for women’s day – And how to make them amazingly special!
If you are lacking inspiration, never fear! We have some of our favourite women’s day gift ideas to help you out!
Now some of these may seem generic, and Yes!, it’s the thought that counts, but if you read these notes and tips on each item, you will see how you can make them more unique and personal to the women in your life on Women’s Day!
1. Flowers – are a timeless favourite – they are not expensive and are a small token to show someone that they are unique and that you are thinking of them – they can be an add-on to another gift or are great just on their own.
Just be sure that the woman you are buying them for firstly likes fresh cut flowers!
If they don’t, opt for a pot plant or orchid instead. Or if they like flowers, then make sure you know which ones are their favourites before buying. Knowing these little details are what women appreciate more than the gift itself.

2. Breakfast and a sleep-in! – This is a great one for Moms, especially those who hardly ever get the chance to sleep in.
Like turning off her alarm at three in the morning to look after the little ones, dragging herself out of bed and putting on her mom’s smile -getting the kids up, changed and fed. Geez, that’s a lot, hey?
If you want to show this everyday superhero that you appreciate what she does. Then here’s the trick – don’t make breakfast for her until she is up!
Sneak her alarm away when she has fallen asleep and let her sleep until she needs to without being woken up! Then, you can offer her coffee, tea and breakfast when she does wake up.
Now, I know you may be thinking, but why not breakfast in bed?
Although it is a sweet gesture, we rarely want to eat as soon as we wake up, and definitely not a huge meal which, let’s face it, most husbands lay on the eggs and bacon and toast a bit much…
So waiting until she wakes up on her own will mean she is well rested and most likely ready for a coffee and something to eat.
And be ready and prepared to make it, but ask her first – she will love you for it!
3. Jewellery – the range for jewellery is wide, and you can pretty much find jewellery on any budget.
But finding something that suits the woman you are buying it for can be tricky.
You will need to know their taste in jewellery and not fall into the trap of “she’s bound to be happy with that”. After all – this is a very personal gift.
And although she will appreciate the gesture, if you really want it to count, you need to get the perfect type of jewellery to suit her style and personality.
4. A spa treatment! A facial or massage, manicure or pedicure are all great ways to spoil a woman on women’s day in South Africa, and MOST women will love to feel pampered for a day! So doing this is a pretty safe bet.
Just remember not to get a mani-pedi for someone that uses their hands practically all day long (yes, not all women sit behind a desk).
You can also add in extras with a spa treatment like a jacuzzi or lunch to make it extra special.
And if this is for a significant other, why not go along with them? They will appreciate that you want to spend some time with them doing something THEY enjoy.
5. Vacations or activities they enjoy – If you want to make a woman feel extra special, then one of the best things you can do is go somewhere they have fond memories of or do something with them they love and enjoy.
Your time and attention usually create the magic here – so if this is someone you care about a lot, then show them! A little bit of time spent together goes a long way.

Celebrating the women in your life is always great, and there are many ways you can do this.
And don’t get me wrong! We all love any token we get just for being who we are; these are just little ways of showing someone that you care about them even more, and they usually don’t cost a cent extra.
It’s just showing that you are paying attention to the little things, that’s all you need to do, and I can almost guarantee you will get that back tenfold!
