Womens Day Gifts
Womens Day Gifts are a great way to show appreciation for women.
Professionals estimated midway through the year, that half the population of South Africa was women.
Half the population, although logical, is a pretty impressive statistic when you think about how many people there are in this country.
That’s a lot of women, each one unique and individual and deserving of equally such Women's Day Gifts.
Unique Gift Ideas for Ladies
- Manicure sets
- Pamper Packs
- Pen and Pencil Sets
- Ladies Bags
Unique Gift Ideas are an important part of any kind of celebration. And for Women’s Day, we have a selection of gifts to remind women how important they are. Women do a lot of hard work, often above and beyond what is required of them. We’ve come a long way, but that doesn’t mean that women don’t deserve a little pampering when we remember the contributions that they have made to our society.
Manicure Sets are a great gift. Looking your best is a point of pride for most women. Personal grooming is more than vanity. It’s war paint. When you have to go out there and do a tough job and you have to be fierce, why not look fierce? The Starlett Manicure Set has 9 tools in its aluminium case, ready to help you look your best. As Heather Renee Sweet once said, “Heels and red lipstick will put the fear of God into people.” The history of Women’s day is one of revolution. By giving this manicure set to a woman you’re helping her get ready to go start one.
Pamper Packs are an excellent way to remind the women who have been out there inciting revolutions to take time and relax. We have a variety of gorgeous pamper packs to choose from in a range of different scents and sizes. From our Bath Robe set to the Sweet-Dreams Pamper Set and more.
Pen and Pencil Sets
Pen and Pencil Sets are practical gifts. They’re also great commemorative items and there’s a certain weight to a really good pen that adds a sense of gravitas to any occasion, especially petition signing. We have a range of gorgeous pen and pencil sets to suit any petition. If it’s a set you’ve set your heart on then Balmain has what you’re looking for in the shape of its Auxiliary Ball Pen and Pencil Set. They also have a set of ball pen and rollerball in the Columbia Set. When it’s a day that was founded on the signing of petitions, a good choice of gifts are stylish Pen and Pencil Sets.
Ladies Bags are incredibly useful when you’re marching on parliament. Where else will you keep your pens and petitions? And snacks, it’s a long walk. Something like the Metro Fashion Tote Bag will make a bold, elegant statement while the Extravaganza Shopper is a powerhouse. For something smaller, the Isabella Cosmetics Bag makes a chic accompaniment for travel.
With us you can relax, appreciate the women in your life and take your pick of our Unique Gift Ideas.
Womens Day in South Africa Women's Day in South Africa is celebrated on the 9th of August, it’s a public holiday that celebrates the women of South Africa and how they fought for equality under the Apartheid government.
On the 9th of August, 1956 twenty thousand women marched on the Union Buildings in Pretoria from places as far away as Cape Town. The crowd is described as moving with dignity despite the size of the gathering which really is an impressive feat.
The purpose of this march was to protest what were known colloquially as Pass Laws, more formally as the Urban Areas Act. This act required to women to carry passes in order to enter and move around within so-called White-Only areas.
The marchers had requested to meet Prime Minister J G Strijdom but their request was refused and neither the Prime Minister nor any of his senior staff were there to meet them. Even so, women stood outside his door in absolute silence for a full 30 minutes.
The march was a great success and to this day we honour the women who protested against unjust treatment and took strong steps to shape the country that we live in today.
One of the songs most commonly associated with the march is, “Wathint'Abafazi Wathint'imbokodo!” or, “You strike the women; you strike a rock!” Truly a powerful slogan for Womens Day in South Africa.
