Did you know that the prime focus of International Women’s Day is about the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women? However, it has also been a practice to put extra effort into making them feel special, honoured, and loved. For everything they do and sacrifice, they deserve nothing but the best. So, when was the last time you did something for the special woman in your life?

Be it your wife, fiancée, sister, mother, or someone you look up to, here are simple ways to celebrate them!
Understand Her Even More
Needless to say, we all have to do this to one another. But being more empathetic to the women in your life can mean a lot. Have a lovely talk during breakfast or dinner, ask her how’s everything going, what her thoughts and feelings are.
When was the last time you told your mother or your partner how much they mean to you or how beautiful they are in your eyes? Of course, you always appreciate them but there will be times you’d forget to mention them. If you’re too shy to do this, you can express it through letters.
Treat Her to a Pamper Time

Who doesn’t need pampering from time to time? Doesn’t matter if you do it at home or you schedule her appointments for salon and spa treatments. It’s the thought that counts! After all, the women in our lives deserve the best of pampering they rarely give to themselves.
Take Over Her Role for the Day

What better way to understand the woman of your life but to step in her shoes? Let her know she can rest easy knowing that you’d take over some of the things she does for the family for a day or two. Who knows? It can also be a form of a bonding experience for both of you.
Don’t Forget to be Romantic

Need we say more? You don’t have to buy the most expensive gifts or plan a grand surprise for her. Sometimes, a pretty bouquet of her favourite flowers can make her feel more special. It’s that small detail that she probably didn’t think you’d think about.
Tip: try singing her favourite song as well as you bring her the flowers.
