March 8, 2021, a day to celebrate the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. This year’s theme: #ChooseToChallenge calls on unifying against gender inequality. International Women’s Day remembers the strong women who fought to achieve the luxuries we now enjoy and encourages all to strive towards their goals without letting social gender perceptions get in the way.
And of course, it’s also an occasion to shop for a little treat. We have put together 3 unique ideas that break away from the cookie-cutter gifts and are guaranteed to let your thoughtful efforts shine through.
Being a lady is hard work and it’s a nice touch to encourage women to take some time for #MeTime. Are you thinking of a little gift for the special ladies in your life? A curated package of #MeTimeEssentials for an hour of indulgent relaxation that any one would dream of. Think of aroma gels, bath bombs, bath crystals, and salt scrubs in a myriad of shapes and scents. For an added personal touch that’s sure to brighten her day, slip in a handwritten note to inspire and remind her how wonderful she is. (p.s. a lavender aroma gift fits perfectly as purple is the international colour of women’s day)
The perfect timeless reminder that time is our most precious treasure. A favourite amongst the August Berg team, this beautiful burgundy timepiece in the most passionate colour - highlights a lady’s passion towards giving the best to her job, family, partner, and self. The gift of time sparks the meaningful remembrance of being conscious of your time and how you choose to spend it. It also serves as a timely reminder that you are doing your best with how you spend your time, and to never feel guilty about taking some time for yourself too #Recharge. Uniting fashion and the ingenuity of everyday practicality, no lady would be able to resist this simple yet elegant Danish-designed watch. Serenity Burgundy Rose Gold with Red Perlon is the ideal statement piece that goes well with rich fabrics such as silk, lace, velvet, and chiffon. A wearable colour that exudes the classiness of the lady wearing it. Let her elegance shine like a diamond!
Gifts that Keep On Giving
Nothing feels quite as good as when you do a little something nice for someone else. Which is why, we suggest going for gifts that give back to the community and here are some of our favourites:
- For every watch that you purchase on August Berg, you are part of our mission to make a difference in someone else’s life and sharing the gift of time through education. Together with Human Practice Foundation, we will give a child in Africa 6 months of quality education. Our ultimate goal is to create a long term positive impact for children, their families and the community in Mount Kenya. Join us in giving the gift of time, and get yours and your loved ones’ name painted on the school we are building together.
- Of course in line with supporting fellow women, check out these collaborative trinket trays by @goldandbeholdco and @cocomisg that are individually crafted to perfection! Pair it with any watch or accessory from Cocomi’s extensive range of brands including our very own August Berg, and purchase this sparkly addition at only $50 (limited time only)!
Lastly, a note to all the strong and independent ladies out there, we would like to remind you that nothing is stopping you from pampering yourself on this day of empowerment. August Berg would like to wish a very happy women’s day to all the incredible ladies! Keep shining on and let your spark lead the way!
