Updated on July 10, 2012

Delight your mother, wife, girlfriend, friend or relative with a gift

Women's Day is an international day of women, which in around 100 countries celebrated every year 8. of March. It's the day of the celebration of economic, political and social equality and women's achievements, celebrate it especially in former communist and socialist countries. In many regions, the day lost its political flavour, and became simply an occasion for men to express their love for women in a way somewhat similar to a mixture of Mother's Day and St Valentine's Day. The overall impression is, that the Women's day in last year losing to its value, many people are even asking about his true value and meaning. It seems that women have long ago reached that for which they fought for years: equal status in society.

But life in our society every day convince us that in practice it isn't so. And even if it was! Why not remember the girls and women, who with their effort, political activity and social engagement that equality and the empowerment achieved?

Let's celebrate the 8th March in memory of the times, when we are conditioned by the social status of bio-power and as a reminder of the fact, how we can be unfair, when when justify our stronger position ...

Therefore, delight your wife, girlfriend, friend or relative with a gift and in this way show them love, affection or gratitude.

Rose is a perfect choice

For many of us the first gift we think of for Women's day are roses. Gift of roses are great for women of all ages and are seen as special gift for the loved ones or a friend in your life.

Rose color meanings:

Red roses

There's nothing secret about the red rose's symbolism of love. The ultimate symbol of romantic love and enduring passion, the red rose also conveys respect and the creative spirit of love. Representing true love stronger than thorns, the red rose is known universally as the lover's rose.

White roses

Representing, humility, purity and innocence, the white rose - often referred to as the bridal rose - is associated with young love. Also symbolizing truth and reverence, it sends a message of loyalty and says "I am worthy of you."

Yellow roses

While in Victorian times, the yellow rose symbolized jealousy, today it represents friendship, joy and caring. A bouquet of these sun-filled blossoms conveys warmth, gladness and affection.

Pink roses

Symbolizing gentility, femininity, elegance and refinement, the pink rose also carries additional meanings depending on its hue. A deep pink conveys gratitude and appreciation, while pale shades connote grace and gentleness, admiration and happiness.

Orange roses

With their warm, vibrant tones, orange roses symbolize enthusiasm and desire. If you're looking for a way to express admiration and attraction - with an underlying message of passion and excitement - then send a bouquet filled with these fiery blooms.

Lilac and purple roses

Thought to be almost mystical in nature, with symbolism tied to enchantment, desire and even proceeding cautiously, it's not surprising that lilac and purple roses send a message of love at first sight.

Multi-colored roses

In some instances - usually when mixing red with another color rose - you can send additional messages with your choice of bouquet. For example, a combination of red and yellow roses conveys gaiety and happiness, while a mix of red and white roses symbolizes unity.

Lovely by Sarah Jessica Parker for Women, Eau de Parfum, 3.4-Ounce Spray Bottle

Feminine, chic, fantasy

The star of Sex and the City with numerous successful movies under her belt is known among perfume enthusiasts as a kindred spirit: Long ago, before creating her own range of fragrances, she was known for layering unusual and under-the-radar fragrances to come up with the scent she deemed "her own". Lovely by Sarah Jessica Parker was thus the brainchild of a genius team who helped SJP realize her vision into a subtle yet intriguing floral woody fragrance that highlights the scent she likes best: musk! A hint of bright-city-bright-lights appletini (apple martini for you) and lavender open the scene for the romance of orchids and the intimacy of musk. The pink bottle, capped with a sphere on the base of which a grey ribbon gives a retro touch, is adorable.There is no other word possible to describe this fragrance; it's utterly lovely!

Top Note: Nectarine, Bergamot, Rosewood, Lavender

Middle Note: Patchouli, White Narcissus, Orchid

Base Note: White Amber, Cedar, Woods White Musks

Recommended Use: Casual wear

Does she like jewelry?

Buying jewelry as a gift for your wife, girlfriend or significant other is meaningful and romantic gesture. Few items can express your lasting love and devotion like a special ring, necklace, bracelet or pair of earrings. Jewelry's magic, mystique and enduring appeal make it a natural gift for special occasions and milestone events in her life.

Tips to help you find a perfect jewelry gift for her:

- Consider her lifestyle and personality

- Look in her jewelry box

- Ask around.

Spa Gift basket is an option

Give her a spa gift basket. It can be done at home, which involved shower gels, shampoos, various scented soaps to oils for massage, scented candles, scented sticks, etc.. The choice is enormous. Besides you can give into a towel with her monogram and if the basket is for your partner, can add some CD with romantic music. Make sure though that you will give her favorite scents and music! And surprise her with romantic bath.

Is she always late?

Women tend to be late... so you can buy her a watch. Watch itself is a bit boring gift, even it would be interpreted as a criticism of her lateness. However, if you write and add a message such as: "Always have time for you!" Or "It's always time for love", will become a boring watch one of the best gifts ever. Besides... Some women's watches are more like jewelry than a device that measured time, so if you choose a stylish watch, which also corresponds to its character, it will not disappoint.

You will celebrate Women's Day?
