International Women’s Day is March 8 and it’s meant to increase awareness of gender equality also to celebrate women’s achievements in every aspect of life.
So when you’re thinking about how you can take part today and every day, consider shopping these gifts, either for yourself or an amazing woman you know, from these women-owned brands that are paving the way for women now and in the future – :
1. Sticky Be Socks Be Free Leg Warmers
This female-owned brand makes cute and comfy grip socks to wear during Pilates, yoga or casually lounging around your house. The Be Free Stirrup Grip Leg Warmers hit right under your knees with open-toes, exposed heels and nonslip grippers on the bottoms.
2. WTHN Body Cupping Kit
If you’ve never tried cupping, you’re missing out on a total relaxation sesh you can get at home sans the masseuse. Used in Traditional Chinese Medicine, which the female founders relied on when creating these products, cupping helps reduce tension, increase circulation and support detox by lifting the connective tissue up for a release. While at first cupping might be slightly uncomfortable, depending on how tight you are, it’s 100% worth it and it will feel better over time.
3. Hey Dewy Wireless Facial Humidifier
Improve your complexion with the Hey Dewy Facial Humidifier. This pretty gadget is wireless and rechargeable, making it easy to hydrate your thirsty skin wherever the day takes you for up to eight hours on one charge. It uses ultrasonic wave technology for a quiet, efficient cool mist.
4. Mo’s Crib Recycled PVC Basket/Planter
When you’re looking for eccentric home décor, look no further than Mo’s Crib. This South African female-owned brand makes its products by hand using sustainable manufacturing. Made from recycled PVC water pipe, this planter can be used indoors and outdoors to house your pet plants, but it’s large enough to use as storage, too.
5. Stone and Strand Butterfly Studs
You can feel good about the purchase of these super dainty and super cute 10-karat solid gold butterfly studs. They’re ethically sourced and made in New York by the female-owned Stone and Strand. Plus, this pair ships for free and comes with a 100-day return policy and warranty.
6. Baggu Reusable Bag
Founder Emily Sugihara launched Baggu as an alternative to those pesky plastic bags that float aimlessly on roads and inevitably get sucked up into your car. This reusable Baggu bag is a standard size and replaces two or three of those annoying bags, but these can go everywhere and hauls almost anything. Made from recycled ripstop nylon, the Laura Ashley x Baggu collab is the newest design of this uber-popular accessory.
7. Parade Pillow Talk Bundle
Give yourself or someone else the gift of luxury sleep from the female-owned and gender- and size-inclusive brand, Parade. This ultra-breathable sleep set is perfect for a “disco nap during the day and pillow talk all through the night.” It comes with the Dream Long-sleeve Button-up top and a pair of the Luxe Easy Sleep Shorts made from silky recycled fibers.
8. Roam Fuzzy Platforms
The woman-owned Roam’s iconic Fuzzy Platform slide gets your feet ready for warmer weather. The upper has a soft faux shearling and is lined in cotton fleece with a memory foam contoured footbed for a supportive fit on top of a 1.5-inch platform wedge. The sustainably-sourced high-flex tread outsole gives you plenty of stability.
9. Jungalow Bird Tea Light Holders
This super adorable set of tea light candle holders will look equally cute nesting in your home. Made from cast iron, these birdies have the perfect mix of rustic meets a modern aesthetic. You might have seen Jungalow along the aisles of Target, but the female-owned brand has its own online store that plants two trees for every single order through the nonprofit Trees for the Future.
10. Gigi Pip Gwen Wide-Brim Hat
The Gwen straw hat is oversized and fabulous while pulling double duty to keep the bright rays off your face thanks to its wide brim. It has a shallow crown and features an adjustable inner sweatband and an attached black grosgrain band with a brass Gigi Pip pin.
