Somehow it is traditionally believed that on a women's holiday, we, pink young ladies and respectable ladies, are only supposed to accept gifts. Undoubtedly, this mission is more pleasant in all respects - we are loved, cherished, adored and demonstrate the intensity of all this combined just through the number and high cost of gifts. But in reality, everything is not so simple. This sweet spring day comes, and suddenly, in complete panic, you discover that there is a long list of personalities whom you need to embrace with love and tenderness by giving gifts.
Just dig into your memory, and you yourself will immediately discover a considerable list of especially females who need, just need to make a pleasant surprise on this day. These are immediate relatives (mother, grandmother, sisters, numerous aunts and young nieces); and colleagues at work (including the harsh boss); and business partners (if you have already become a business woman, then you are probably not alone in this field); and the spouses of male partners (who also cannot be ignored); and just a bosom friend.
You see how many people are recruited with different interests, tastes, views, attachments, the degree of closeness to you directly, the way of life, and so on. How not to get confused? How to make the right choice in the selection of gifts in order to really bring joy to others and not harm yourself?
First of all, think a hundred times before you go to choose gifts in the lingerie section. Perhaps, personally, you would like to receive that cute set with handmade lace for a holiday, but underwear is still a very personal, intimate gift. Who are you so close to that you can give such a present without fear of being in an ambiguous situation? Well, perhaps only to my own sister or even some close relative. And even a friend, if you have known her for three hundred years and all three hundred years - on a completely friendly, frank foot. Personally, I have a friend whom we have known since first grade and who has three official marriages, two unofficial ones and a couple of children from different husbands. And we experienced all this together. It is clear that in this situation she is closer to me than any blood relative. In addition, when we were students, she managed to spend forty of the fifty rubles of the scholarship on the purchase of linen. So here the choice of a gift is simply predetermined.
A more neutral and no less desirable gift (on the eve of the new beach season) will be a swimsuit. It is timely, stylish, beautiful, cute and quite expensive if the gift is from a famous fashion house. Choose, say, the killer for men leopard print from Saint Laurent, hand-knitted hippie knitwear from Missoni, cute flowers from Versace or Mirani, psychedelic geometry from Pucci - in any case, you will not go wrong.
Another extreme that should still be avoided is very expensive gifts. Let's face it: International Women's Day is not the reason why you should cover everyone you know with diamond necklaces or mink stoles. For this there are birthdays, anniversaries, in the end the New Year … In addition, if you have a dozen female colleagues and two dozen female relatives, then there simply will not be enough expensive gifts for all. And as a result, the holiday will be simply ruined, since resentment cannot be avoided here. Perhaps an exquisite expensive gift should be presented only to the wife of your business partner. But this is more from the field of business etiquette than from the field of warm human relations.
And it's better to stay true to more traditional gifts. For example, today stores offer us a huge selection of excellent confectionery products. A beautifully decorated box of chocolates - why not a gift? After all, it's not a secret for anyone that we are all terrible sweet teeth, although sometimes we carefully hide our attachments, trying to portray a healthy lifestyle with solid yoghurts.
Naturally, when discussing gifts for lovely ladies, we cannot ignore such an important area as perfumery and cosmetics. Moreover, the emphasis should be placed on the first. No, of course, if you pick up a large set of decorative cosmetics from one of the lines of some leading company, it will be a wonderful gift. However, this is a rather complicated process, because like this, offhand, it will be necessary to determine whether the tones and shades you have chosen are suitable for your visas, what is his (or rather her) skin type, how much all this will be combined with the main directions of the spring wardrobe. So your money, by and large, may be thrown into the wind.
It is much easier to pick up something from decorative cosmetics for small souvenirs for colleagues, girlfriends, relatives. A tube of bright red lipstick from Givenchy, lip gloss in a fashionable chocolate range from L`Oreal, pearlescent nail polish from Avon, eyeshadow from Guerlain in an elegant decorative box … All this is not so expensive, but it will not go unnoticed.
An expensive and refined gift - an exclusive perfume. The new fragrance from Dior (Forever and Ever) is perfect for sentimental romantic women, in which the notes of wild rose, enhanced by the spicy notes of geranium, serve as a symbol of eternal love. Modern women of the technogenic XXI century will more like the floral-woody fragrance Madness from Chopard, which touches the most intimate in a woman - her ineradicable craving for luxury, pleasure in life. This is also emphasized by the laconic geometrically verified bottle of bright ruby color.
Colleagues, business partners, or your female boss need to choose very special gifts. The position they already occupy implies that this is an energetic business woman who spends most of her time at work (travel, business negotiations, meetings) and prefers discreet quality things that speak for themselves. Here you have a lot of room to choose from. You can choose something as original as a Hermes leather mouse pad, a stylish Cartier pen, a Gucci metal ruler in a leather case, a silver-coated brass lighter from Dunhill or a leather mobile phone case from Lancel.
By the way, about mobile phones. They can also be a good gift. For example, Samsung has offered a charming feminine version of a mobile phone in a bright red casing. When you turn it on, an image of a rose appears on the display. The internal organizer is equipped not only with standard programs (calculator, to-do list, reminder, notebook), but also with a special program for calculating the notorious critical days.
But not all women, fortunately, have devoted themselves only to work. Who, if not us, can make their home cozy, comfortable, warm? This means that any woman will be happy to receive some cute trifle for her home. For example, it can be a surprise glass from Moet & Chandon - two thin silver champagne glasses are fixed on one leg and are intended for a romantic dinner for two. No woman's heart can resist hand-made lace - boiling white cotton tablecloths and napkins from Signoridi Firenze and Christofle or linen from Yeletsky Lace and Vologda Lace firms will be a wonderful gift.
In fact, any woman is so unlimited in her views, tastes and preferences that, in principle, it is not so difficult to please her. Silk neckerchief, leather belt; handbag embroidered with beads; modest jewelry; a beautiful bottle of oil or bath foam; a terry towel of an unusual color; a pyramid candle of an original shape with aromatic resins; notebook … Very interesting and original little things - various forms of sachets with soft aromas that will create a charming atmosphere of kindness, warmth and love in your home. The main thing that must be remembered on this day: gifts should not be purely practical, utilitarian. A woman should feel like a Beautiful lady, and as an eternal Cinderella, a housewife, a workhorse and an anxious head of the family, we will be in the days remaining from this holiday.
