2. Spa Day
A relaxing spa day is the perfect way to unwind and relax after a long week at work. You know this is a winner! Red Balloon has some great spa packages in different locations so you can choose something that's near you.
3. Personalised Pamper Hamper
Personalise a hamper with all the goodies you know they love for a girls night in. Add a face mask and some skincare, slippers and a cosy new pj set, their favourite snacks and a bottle of rosé.
4. Home Cooked Meal
The way to a woman's heart is through her stomach! Whip up a storm for International Women's Day this year with their favourite home cooked meal! Make it extra special with a fancy dinner set up with some flowers, candles and her favourite drink. Any woman who cooks all the time will appreciate the day off. Oh, and extra points for washing up!
A gift doesn't always have to be a thing, it can be an experience too! Now that you already know the way to a woman's heart is through her stomach, all you have to do is find a scenic spot and surprise her with a picnic basket. Finger food is the best for picnics. This might be the only time I say think small. Small as in cherry tomatoes, baby cucumbers, cheese and crackers, grapes, strawberries, raspberries, cookies. You get my point.
6. Paint & Sip
Get your girl gang together and enjoy a group paint and drink activity to get your creative juices flowing. See what I did there? You can book an activity at your local studio or DIY it. Grab some canvases and paints at your local arts and craft store and paint in your backyard. Since it's international women's day, why not paint an inspirational female in your life!?
7. Daily Planner / Organiser
Women are great at multitasking but sometimes our daily to do lists can get overwhelming. Gifting a daily planner/organiser this International Women's Day is the perfect way to help the girl bosses in your life stay organised and plan for success! Typo and Kikki K have some great planners.
8. 30 Day Creativity Challenge
So you might have realised we're a creative bunch at Studio Artifact. This 30 Day Creativity Challenge by DOIY from the Iconic is one of our favourite gifts because it's fun and not predictable. Not only because it's not a gift you receive often, but because you literally don't know what the next day's challenge will be! This gift is perfect for your creative friends or someone who is stuck in a bit of a rut. This challenge will spur them into action, get them thinking and give them new ideas! Who knows, they might credit you with their next bright idea!
Here's to strong women! May we know them. May we raise them. May we be them.
