You have amazing women in your life, let’s celebrate all of them on International Women’s Day! It’s a chance to remind your co-workers, besties, mom, and even grandma how much you love and appreciate them by treating them to something special and spending precious time together.
Jewelry for the Modern Woman
Pearls are a special and treasured gift. Designed and handmade by Vancouver lawyer and YouTuber Elle Florence, Nouvelle Pearl jewelry is made especially for the modern woman. The beautiful Nouvelle Pearl necklace has a unique design, allowing it to be worn long, or short with a detachable bracelet that can be worn separately. It’s the perfect gift for the hard-working and inspirational women you look up to.
DIY Spa Day
One of the most valuable ways to show your love and appreciation is with your time. Create your own DIY spa day at home, and spend the day pampering yourself, alongside your leading ladies. Treat them to a mani-pedi with some essentials from London Drugs: an at-home pedicure kit, your favourite nail polishes, and have a few MaskerAide face masks on hand for extra pampering and silly selfie opportunities!
Treat some of the special women in your life to a chic box of macarons. These stylish and sweet treats originally made popular in France can now be found around the world, and come in a variety of delectable flavours. The best ones to try? Thierry – their salted caramel macarons are to die for.
Beauty for your Besties
Are your girls obsessed with the latest beauty trends? Surprise them with some makeup goodies that even they may not have yet tried. Some options include a customizable lip palette, bronzer kit, or nail set from London Drugs. Make a night of it and give each other makeovers before heading out for an evening together!
Afternoon Tea Date
Plan a date for afternoon tea with your favourite ladies. Dress up in your very best, sip tea and treat yourselves to adorable bite-sized sandwiches, scones and desserts. A favourite spot is Neverland Tea in Kitsilano. Or host your own afternoon tea at home with homemade treats and your favourite tea in grandma’s vintage tea set!
