You make the world come alive. You make the world colorful. You are the inspiration behind all that happens. You are the pillar of strength to many around you, the centrifugal force of your own little world, called family. I love being a women and celebrate being one everyday, hope you all do too!! And to all those who battle their various circumstances, the hurdles, the sacrifices and the compromises they make, wish them all inner strength! Happy Women's Day!Every year, International Women's Day is observed on March 8. This day is celebrated to recognize the marvelous achievements by women throughout history. Which means, you get to show your appreciation and love to the women in your life; and many choose to do so by showering them with gifts.

So this Women's Day, we are giving the clichéd gifts a rest, and giving some unique and amazing gifts a chance. Remember, the thought you put into these gifts is what will count, and not the amount of money you spend.
1. Fill Her Day with Exhilarating Activities
Many times, we wish to do things in life, but can't really find the time. And more commonly, that is the story of almost every woman in the world. With all the responsibilities she may have, give her a day she'll never forget. With tons of adventurous activities to choose from, you can fill her entire day's itinerary. Take her on an ATV ride, try bungee jumping, skydiving, rafting, zip-lining, paintballing, or rent a sailboat for the day. It's not just a gift for her, but an opportunity for you to spend quality time with her as well.
Enjoy a traditional English afternoon tea in the garden. But you don't have to take her to England in order to give her the gift. You can organize a tea party right in her backyard or garden. Place a table in the garden along with the food to be served―sandwiches, cakes, scones, pastries, cookies, and cupcakes. Invite her girlfriends over, and surprise her with an afternoon filled with fun, laughter, and of course, tea.
For women who are passionate about writing, starting their own blog is an excellent gift idea. First thing you need to do is pick a free blog host―WordPress, Blogger, Squarespace, Medium, and Tumblr. Next, design the look of the blog (only if you're sure that she'll love it), and present her this gift. This blog is not just a gift, but an amazing platform where she can showcase her work. Not only will she always remember what you did for her, but it'll motivate her to write and publish her work for others to read as well.
Camping is surely not a unique gift, but you can make it the best one for her. Pack all the accessories and essentials for the trip, and drive to the nearest lake. Once you arrive, choose a camping spot and set up tent. Now you can either start a bonfire and make s'mores, or explore the area around the campground. Well, whatever you do, don't forget to take a lot of pictures so that she never forgets this day.
We want you to enroll her in some hobby classes. But we're not talking about cooking, knitting, or candle-making classes; we are talking about thinking beyond the obvious and really surprising her with the gift. How about giving her a chance to follow her true passion, or making her realize that there's so much more out there? Will she be interested in pottery, dancing, or bartending? These are some things in life that we're always scared of doing, but with the right push, it can be achieved. Be that person for her; be there to help her realize what all she may be missing out on.
Women love flowers; but that doesn't mean a bouquet is the only answer. If she's into gardening, or just likes to have fresh flowers blooming around the house, then this gift is perfect for her. Go to the nearest plant nursery, and get different types of flowering plants for her. Grab decorative and unique flowering pots, and plant these flowers in individual pots. Decorate her garden or backyard with these pots, and wait for her reaction.
First things first, contact a freelance photographer, a fashion designer, and a makeup artist. Set everything up either at your place or hers (without her knowledge, of course). Get her to the venue, and have the makeup artist and fashion designer take over. Once she's ready, the photographer will work his/her magic. By the end of the day, she'll have a fashion portfolio of her own.
Instead of hosting a regular dinner party, give the women an entire day's worth of luxurious pampering. There are many spa party providers that offer mobile spa services along with a DJ, hors d'oerves, cocktails, and so much more. Invite all her girlfriends over, and give them all mini gift baskets filled with fragrant bath products. Nothing beats a home spa party!
We've saved the best for last. It is said that the joy of giving is far greater than the happiness of receiving. So, instead of giving her a gift, why not do something good for the community and sign up for some volunteer work. Plant seedlings, clean the beaches, help out at a homeless shelter or a senior home, or assist in the rescue and rehabilitation of orphaned animals. This is one gift she'll cherish (and perhaps continue) for the rest of her life.
Before you head out the door, set a budget for the gift you wish to get her. And of course, choose a gift that best suits her personality, and will bring a smile to her face.
