2. Write a letter:

When was the last time you received a letter? Not the envelopes full of bills that drop on your doormat each day, but a real, personalized letter that someone's crafted just for you? Most of us confine letter-writing to the occasional Christmas thank-you letter.

Why not try writing a letter to a friend or coworker who's inspired you, as a way to mark Women's Day this year?

If you're the kind of person who gets stuck when it comes to putting words on the page, use a tool like UPDF AI to help you out. Let AI do the heavy lifting and then you just have to put your unique spin on it.

Part 2: The Top 4 Self-Care Gift Ideas for Women's Day

Everyone needs to find time for self-care. Women are especially prone to shelving their own needs in favor of everyone else's. Those quiet moments of self-care often fall off the bottom of the to-do list.

A self-care gift is a great way to show someone that you care, and that you notice how much they do for others. It's a great way to acknowledge someone on Women's Day.

1. Aromatherapy candle:

Research shows that fragrance can affect our mood, and can also impact brain waves.

An aromatherapy candle is a fabulous gift, and a great way to tap into the power of scent, providing soothing gentle light, and a relaxing scent. Consider lavender for relaxation, and lemon or peppermint for concentration.

2. Eye masks:

Sleep hygiene is a hot topic when it comes to well-being and self-care. Most of us don't get as much sleep as we need, and in our 24/7 world, it can be hard to shut the world out so you can get proper rest.

One way to improve sleep hygiene is to create a dark space for sleeping. You can't always block out all the light from the bedroom though, so a sleep mask is a good gift for any woman struggling to get her full eight hours of sleep in.

3. Skincare products:

Choosing skincare products as a Women's Day gift can be a bit of a minefield. Skincare is a very personal choice, and women tend to have their own specific preferences.

However, there are some 'safe' options that are likely to be well received. In air-conditioned offices, skin can often feel dry very quickly, so moisturizing products can make great gifts. Consider hand creams and lip balms as inexpensive yet thoughtful gifts for Women's Day.

4. Makeup products:

If you're considering makeup when it comes to Women's Day gift ideas, you'll want to do a bit of detective work ahead of time. Like skincare, most women have specific brands they love and others they aren't so keen on.

If you're choosing a gift for someone you know well, pay attention to the makeup brands you see them using. A voucher for that company or for the cosmetics counter in a department store is bound to go down well. Vouchers can be a way to avoid buying unwanted gifts while giving the recipient the treat of a shopping trip to choose products they love.

Part 3: 5 Awesome Books By Inspiring Women - Women's Day Gift Ideas

You're bound to have a bookworm amongst the special women in your life. If so, check out these books by inspiring women and see if one of them would be a good fit.

1. Becoming by Michelle Obama

From South Side Chicago to the White House, this is the former First Lady's memoir. In it, she shares her experiences as a Black woman in America and talks about identity and womanhood. She touches on her personal life, her values, and the challenges of being a public figure.

2. Wild Swans: Three Daughters of China by Jung Chang

This historical novel follows the lives of three generations of women in China. It begins early in the 20th century and spans the rise of Communism and the Cultural Revolution.

3. Hidden Figures: The Untold Story of the African American Women Who Helped Win the Space Race by Margot Lee Shetterly

When you think of the Space Race, it's unlikely that many women feature in the accounts you've come across. This book changes that. It's the story of three NASA mathematicians and engineers who also happened to be Black women. Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan, and Mary Jackson had crucial roles in the American space program.

4. My Life on the Road by Gloria Steinem

She shares her experiences as an organizer, activist, and journalist, and part of the feminist movement in the United States. She writes about the "surrealism in everyday life" that she experienced while traveling.

5. The Hiding Place by Corrie ten Boom

Published in 1962, this book continues to find new readers even after more than 60 years. It's the memoir of Corrie ten Boom, a Dutch Christian woman who hid Jews from the Nazis during the Second World War. She saved around 800 Jews, risking her life, and that of her family, and ultimately being arrested and sent to a concentration camp.

Part 4: Four Best Productivity Gadgets for Women's Day Gifts

Our final category of Women's Day gift ideas is productivity gadgets. Everyone wants to feel more productive, and a new tool or gadget certainly helps with that.

1. Standing Desks:

Most of us live sedentary lives, especially if we work in offices. A standing desk can help you be more active throughout the day. It may help reduce back pain and improve mood and focus. Some people find that standing more at work helps avoid that mid-afternoon slump that many of us experience. It also encourages you to move a little more, and forces you to pay better attention to your posture.

2. Noise-Canceling Headphones:

If you've worked in a busy office or tried to concentrate on working in an airport lounge, you'll know how hard it is to tune out background noise. Almost everyone can benefit from a good pair of noise-canceling headphones. Discreet noise-canceling earphones are available, and they're a powerful tool for maintaining focus.

3. PDF Editor:

One way to approach gifting for Women's Day or any other occasion is to focus on ways to make the recipient's life a little easier. That's why we've included a PDF editor on this list of productivity tools.

UPDF takes all the friction out of working with PDFs, which is a massive time saver by itself. But did you also know that UPDF can help you be more productive in every area of life?

  • Use UPDF AI to help you plan meals and make the most of your grocery budget.
  • Ask it to summarize texts to speed up your reading process.
  • Annotate documents when collaborating, or use custom stamps and graphics to help your workflow.

4. Under-Desk Elliptical Machine:

Another excellent gift is an under-desk elliptical machine. It's the perfect way to keep moving while you're working. It's a low-impact way to introduce a little cardio into your daily routine, without having to find time to go to the gym. Some mini-ellipticals feature resistance cords for an upper-body workout at the same time.

Wrapping It Up

International Women's Day is the perfect occasion to show the women in your life that you appreciate them. Whether you're looking for token gifts like a card and flowers, or something larger like a standing desk, we hope you've found some helpful ideas here. And, if you're fed up with the muttered curses across the office as your colleague wrestles with online PDF editors, a UPDF subscription is a great gift.
