“Women, they have minds, and they have souls, as well as just hearts. And they’ve got ambition, and they’ve got talent, as well as just beauty. I’m so sick of people saying that love is all a woman is fit for.”

—Jo March, The Little Women by Louisa May Alcott

From famed female novelists to women who were cultural change makers, history has it that, women have always worked hard to ensure that their voice is heard and are appreciated for who they are. Whether it is standing up to colour disparities, fighting for a place in a male-dominated world or breaking barriers in athletics, women have always gone an extra mile.

Irrespective of age, race, or nationality, powerful women like Malala Yousafzai, Michelle Obama, Pritam Potdar, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Emma Watson and Melinda Gates have inspired millions of girls and women across generations around the world by working with purpose and confidence. Through their struggle they have proved that having strength and persistence doesn’t mean sacrificing your vulnerability and feminine qualities.

If you have had the pleasure of living with women across generations – grandma, mother, sister and daughter, you would realise how well do they balance the world. Be it studying hard to make a mark, keeping up with their career or cooking your favourite meals, they got it all. Celebrating women does not have to confine to specific dates, but with Women’s Day just around the corner, it’s hard to miss not to celebrate the achievements that our fellow sisters have achieved through the years.

Commemorated on 8th March every year, the International Women’s Day lauds the achievements of women in the fields of social, economic, cultural, and political arena. It has been a day to celebrate the small but important victories for women, as we break one shackle at a time.

Celebrating women’s day doesn’t mean you shower her with beauty treatments, gifts and buy her spa vouchers. The consumerism driven around these days has actually made people feel that the cause is lost. What you need to do is probably appreciate, acknowledge and open the doors for them, one opinion at a time. And while you do so, if you still feel that you might want to give them something that they yearn for, go-ahead.

From masks that urge you to ‘be safe’ and apparels that get the eyes rolling to jewellery pieces that serve as modern heirlooms and accessories that look classy, Ciceroni’s curated list of women’s day gifts might be a good starting point for you to show your appreciation.
