The hol­i­day of March 8 dates back to the begin­ning of the 20th cen­tu­ry, when women first spoke open­ly about their rights and uni­ver­sal equal­i­ty. And for more than forty years, almost the whole world has hon­ored this date as a day of strug­gle for women’s rights and inter­na­tion­al peace. In our coun­try, the hol­i­day is often called Inter­na­tion­al Women’s Day and is per­ceived as a hol­i­day of spring, beau­ty and fem­i­nin­i­ty.

There is a wide­spread belief that on March 8, only men should con­grat­u­late women. So it is, but this is not a rea­son to for­get about your beloved friends! Why not once again remind the peo­ple who have gone through fire and water with you about how impor­tant they are? We shares ideas for gifts on March 8, 2023 to a friend and, togeth­er with psy­chol­o­gists, tells how to choose a present for a loved one.

Top 25 gifts for a friend on March 8

For lovers of beau­ty trends

1. Eye patches

Eye Patches
Pho­to: @yan-krukov,

How to look fresh in the morn­ing if there is work until mid­night, a par­ty until the morn­ing, or ordi­nary insom­nia? Every girl liv­ing in the rhythm of a big city knows the ansr to this ques­tion — eye patch­es. They not only help elim­i­nate puffi­ness, signs of fatigue and bags under the eyes, but also fight the first signs of aging. We are sure that your friend will have a cou­ple in her cos­met­ic bag. So why not add to her col­lec­tion!

Patch­es dif­fer in the mate­r­i­al from which they are made, as ll as in the effect they have. In stores, you can eas­i­ly find both a bud­get option and pre­mi­um patch­es. And if you want to com­ple­ment the gift, then feel free to buy a cleans­ing gel for wash­ing, because the patch­es must be applied strict­ly on clean skin.

2. Facial serum

Face Serum
Pho­to: @ann-poan,

Anoth­er trend of the last decade is face serum. Increas­ing­ly, cos­me­tol­o­gists and beau­ty blog­gers advise using serum after wash­ing and before apply­ing cream. Why such dif­fi­cul­ties? The fact is that the serum con­tains a large per­cent­age of active ingre­di­ents that imme­di­ate­ly pen­e­trate the skin and act at a deep lev­el. The creams are used to form only an exter­nal pro­tec­tive bar­ri­er.

Before buy­ing a serum, be sure to check what type of skin your girl­friend has. If you know what cream she uses, then it is bet­ter to buy a prod­uct from the same line — the effect will be even more notice­able. It is worth tak­ing a clos­er look at night serums. They are easy to use, and the effect, accord­ing to reviews, is vis­i­ble in the morn­ing after the first appli­ca­tion. The cost of a gift will great­ly depend on the brand, but you can eas­i­ly find a qual­i­ty prod­uct with­in 10$. In addi­tion, shops often arrange good sales before the hol­i­day.

3. Niche perfume

Favorite Perfume

Is your girl­friend ll versed in per­fumery, remem­bers sev­er­al dozen names and can eas­i­ly iden­ti­fy the heart notes of a fra­grance? Then please her with per­fume. We advise you to avoid the mass mar­ket and turn to a niche seg­ment. So you can def­i­nite­ly pick up a unique aro­ma from nat­ur­al and high-qual­i­ty raw mate­ri­als. For­tu­nate­ly, niche per­fumery has become a lit­tle more acces­si­ble today, so it is not nec­es­sary to spend a for­tune on a gift. You may ll look at indi­vid­ual per­fumers who are often found at fairs or in small show­rooms.

4. Hair filler

hair filler
Pho­to: @element-digital,

If your friend is lucky enough to be the own­er of long and thick hair, she should def­i­nite­ly get acquaint­ed with fillers. This tool is almost like resus­ci­ta­tion for hair — it instant­ly pen­e­trates the hair struc­ture, restores dam­aged areas and deeply nour­ish­es them. It is note­wor­thy that the effect is vis­i­ble imme­di­ate­ly after the first appli­ca­tion and lasts up to three wash­es of the head.

In stores, the prod­uct is most often sold in small ampoules. You can pur­chase one ampoule as an inex­pen­sive com­pli­ment for the hol­i­day, or a whole set (10, 20 or 30 pieces).

5. Cream for the décolleté zone

Pho­to: @mikhail-nilov,

The neck and décol­leté area is a very del­i­cate part of the body, which can tell a lot about the age and lifestyle of their own­er. But for some rea­son, most women for­get to care for them or do it wrong. The rea­son is most often the same — it’s a pity to buy a sep­a­rate prod­uct. March 8 is a great occa­sion to please a friend with a rem­e­dy for del­i­cate and sen­si­tive skin.

6. Beauty fridge

beauty fridge

A beau­ty refrig­er­a­tor sounds like some­thing very pro­fes­sion­al and, as yet, seem­ing­ly inac­ces­si­ble to a sim­ple man in the street. In real­i­ty, stores offer a fair­ly wide range of such refrig­er­a­tors. The gift is not cheap, but if you real­ly want to please your girl­friend, then she will remem­ber such a present for a long time!

Refrig­er­a­tors vary in size, shape, design, dis­play and brand. It is rec­om­mend­ed to store all cos­met­ics in it — both care and dec­o­ra­tive — except for those that con­tain oils. Today, most women store cos­met­ics in the bath­room, which is strict­ly con­traindi­cat­ed, since tem­per­a­ture changes and humid­i­ty destroy the com­po­si­tion of the prod­ucts. A beau­ty refrig­er­a­tor will not only extend the shelf life of cos­met­ics, but also make them work bet­ter.

For fash­ion­istas

7. Sunglasses


Inter­na­tion­al Women’s Day falls on a won­der­ful time of the year — spring. The frosts are already reced­ing, and the sun is increas­ing­ly pleased with its pres­ence. An excel­lent gift for the hol­i­day will be sun­glass­es — not only a beau­ti­ful acces­so­ry, but sim­ply an irre­place­able thing in the warm sea­son.

When buy­ing glass­es, you need to take into account many fac­tors: the col­or and shape of the face, the type of appear­ance, the col­or of hair and eyes, the style of the per­son, the shape and col­or of the frame, the col­or of the lens­es. That is why it is best to try on glass­es with a friend so that she her­self can choose the right mod­el. Do you want to make a sur­prise? Not a prob­lem — call a friend to the store under the pre­text of buy­ing glass­es for your­self. Believe me, she will quick­ly get involved in the process and start try­ing on with you. You will only have to remem­ber the mod­el that suits her, and lat­er return for it.

8. Hat

Pho­to: @porapak-apichodilok,

Hats have been attract­ing the atten­tion of fash­ion­istas for more than one sea­son. If you want to refresh or dilute the image, just add this acces­so­ry, and now you stand out from the crowd and attract atten­tion. If a friend fol­lows trends and allows her­self bold looks, then for her a head­dress will become not only an orig­i­nal, but also a nec­es­sary gift.

When buy­ing a hat, be sure to con­sid­er the style and type of appear­ance of the future own­er. Much atten­tion should be paid to col­or and style.

9. Stockings

Pho­to: @dids,

No woman can resist stock­ings — the acces­so­ry allows you to feel fem­i­nine, attrac­tive and more con­fi­dent. In addi­tion, in the spring, more and more peo­ple want to ar skirts and dress­es, and stock­ings will be a great alter­na­tive to tights.

As a gift, you can choose any mod­el, based on their pref­er­ences of your girl­friend. Be sure to pay atten­tion to the qual­i­ty of the prod­uct and look at the reviews. Ide­al­ly, give pref­er­ence to already proven brands. In all oth­er respects, it is worth being guid­ed by plain taste and per­son­al pref­er­ences. Such a gift will cost you less than 10$, and a friend will def­i­nite­ly appre­ci­ate it and use it for its intend­ed pur­pose.

10. Choker


More recent­ly, at the men­tion of chok­ers, pic­tures from the 90s popped up in my head, when every sec­ond rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the fair sex, regard­less of age, wore a black fish­ing line tat­too chok­er. His­to­ry says that chok­ers re pop­u­lar even before our era. Today, the jel­ry has returned to us in a new inter­pre­ta­tion — ele­gant, sophis­ti­cat­ed and refined.

In stores you can find chok­ers made of gold and sil­ver, pre­cious and semi-pre­cious stones, vel­vet and lace, with or with­out pen­dants. The acces­so­ry will be a won­der­ful gift for any girl, because it empha­sizes the beau­ty of the neck, looks dis­creet, but at the same time attracts the eye. In addi­tion, the choice of chok­ers is tru­ly huge, and you can buy an inter­est­ing mod­el for lit­tle mon­ey. By the way, you can make a chok­er your­self — your friend will def­i­nite­ly appre­ci­ate your atten­tive­ness and care.

For con­nois­seurs of home com­fort

11. Candle

Candles with usb lighter
Pho­to: @paul-nce,

The can­dle will help cre­ate a cozy atmos­phere in the house and will be a won­der­ful dec­o­ra­tion of the inte­ri­or. Pref­er­ence should be giv­en to can­dles made of soy or coconut wax with a high con­tent of essen­tial oils and a wood­en wick. The lat­ter will add cozi­ness with its crack­ling, sim­i­lar to the crack­ling of a fire­place or a fire. In addi­tion, you should pay atten­tion to the can­dle­stick itself — choose glass or ceram­ic, try to avoid flashy stick­ers. It is desir­able that they do not exist at all. Choose the smell at your dis­cre­tion, but it is bet­ter to stay on lighter and more del­i­cate com­po­si­tions.

12. Shelf-table in the bath

Shelf-table in the bath
Pho­to: @yan-krukov,

What could be bet­ter than a hot fra­grant bath at the end of a hard day? An inter­est­ing book and a glass of sparkling wine will help turn the process into a real rit­u­al of relax­ation and soli­tude. Con­ve­nient­ly orga­nize the space will allow a spe­cial shelf-table. They are dif­fer­ent in width, mate­r­i­al and func­tion­al­i­ty, but all, with­out excep­tion, are impreg­nat­ed with a spe­cial com­pound that pro­tects the prod­uct from mois­ture and bac­te­ria growth. In the sim­plest con­fig­u­ra­tion, the shelf is equipped with a stand for a glass and a tablet, as ll as recess­es for can­dles. The more com­plex the equip­ment and the more expen­sive the mate­r­i­al, the high­er the price will be. If a friend likes to spend evenings at home and knows a lot about relax­ation, she will def­i­nite­ly like such a gift.

13. Houseplant

A flor pot

If your loved one loves and knows how to care for flors, then a flor or a tree in a pot will be a suit­able gift. Indoor plants cre­ate com­fort, puri­fy the air and increase the humid­i­ty in the room. They give the inte­ri­or fresh­ness and add a touch of spring. In addi­tion, flors can cheer up and improve a person’s ener­gy.

When choos­ing a gift, you should rely on the per­son­al pref­er­ences of your girl­friend, but you can also rely on the Chi­nese teach­ings of Feng Shui. Accord­ing to the lat­ter, vio­let, ficus, gera­ni­um, bego­nia, Chi­nese rose, orange tree, myr­tle tree, poin­set­tia and mon­ey tree (cras­su­la) have the most pos­i­tive ener­gy. In addi­tion, you can buy a fun­ny planter or a nice met­al water­ing can.

14. Night light

night light moon

Anoth­er way to cre­ate an atmos­phere of seren­i­ty and ease is the right night­light. It can be lit before bed to relax and take your mind off every­day prob­lems, or dur­ing med­i­ta­tion. Night­lights are dif­fer­ent — these are lava lamps, and salt lamps, and lamps in the form of plan­ets, and neon pan­els, and pro­jec­tor night­lights. In addi­tion, they dif­fer in the mate­r­i­al from which they are made, and the col­or of the glow. Some devices may be equipped with a motion sen­sor. When choos­ing, you should rely on the inter­ests of a friend — maybe she is a fan of uni­corns or, for exam­ple, knows every­thing about stars and galax­ies.

15. Bedding

Set of silk pillowcases

Bed linen dif­fers in mate­r­i­al and den­si­ty. 100% cot­ton is best as a gift. Silk should be aban­doned due to its high cost, and linen — because of the capri­cious­ness of the mate­r­i­al. As for the col­or and pat­tern — the range is huge and only you know what your girl­friend will appre­ci­ate the most. Before buy­ing, be sure to ask for a vis­it and stealth­ily mea­sure the width of the mat­tress and the size of the blan­ket.

For active and sports

16. Yoga mat

yoga mat

Yoga has become incred­i­bly pop­u­lar in recent years. Some­one goes to class­es sole­ly for the sake of gain­ing a toned body and a good stretch, some­one is look­ing for peace and try­ing to curb the mind, and some­one just wants to switch off from wor­ries, focus­ing on every cell of their body. If your friend prac­tices or wants to try it for a long time, then you should give her a yoga mat. Equip­ment is always avail­able in stu­dios, but work­ing out on your own mat is more hygien­ic and more enjoy­able.

All mats vary in mate­r­i­al, size, ight, thick­ness, grip qual­i­ty and of course col­or and design. If you want to please a sophis­ti­cat­ed yogi, it is bet­ter to give a mat made of eco-friend­ly nat­ur­al rub­ber. A friend often trav­els — a light­ight trav­el option is suit­able. For begin­ners, you can stop at the rug with the image of the main asanas — it will help not to get con­fused dur­ing class­es.

17. Yoga socks

yoga socks
Pho­to: @ron-lach,

Not ready to spend a lot of mon­ey on a gift, but want to buy some­thing orig­i­nal? Yoga socks will be appre­ci­at­ed by girls who active­ly prac­tice both in the stu­dio and at home. Socks with non-slip coat­ing have good adhe­sion to the sur­face, per­fect­ly absorb mois­ture. Open fin­gers allow you to bet­ter feel the mat and hold in many asanas. And the cheer­ful design will cheer you up!

For those who can’t sit still

18. Cooling bottle case

Cooling bottle case
Pho­to: @julia-sakelli,

March 8 is not only Women’s Day, but also an unspo­ken com­mem­o­ra­tion of the arrival of spring. And this means that a lit­tle more — and long walks around the city, trips and trav­els, pic­nics in nature are ahead. What could be bet­ter than a cool drink on a warm spring day? Cool­ing bot­tle case will be an unusu­al gift for every girl who loves to spend time out­side.

The bot­tle case is made of poly­ester and has a cool­ing gel inside to adjust the tem­per­a­ture. The size usu­al­ly fits a stan­dard 750 ml bot­tle of wine or sparkling wine, but it can also hold a bot­tle of lemon­ade or min­er­al water. Alter­na­tive­ly, you can pur­chase a Vel­cro cool­ing pad. It is more suit­able for small bot­tles, but its price will be less.

19. Travel holder


If a friend loves to trav­el, but loves even more that every­thing has always been in order, a trav­el hold­er is the per­fect gift for her. This seem­ing­ly sim­ple thing is designed to store your pass­port, board­ing pass­es, cards, cash and even a pen in one place. You will def­i­nite­ly not for­get the hold­er at home, it is con­ve­nient to use it at the air­port, and in beten trips it will serve as a place to store the most impor­tant doc­u­ments.

20. Travel bottle set

Travel bottle set
Pho­to: @castorly-stock,

Hotels and guest hous­es always offer their own cos­met­ics, but today more and more women tend to use the usu­al prod­ucts even when trav­el­ing. This is espe­cial­ly true for sham­poo, con­di­tion­er and face cream. Not every com­pa­ny pro­duces minia­tures, and often they cost almost the same as the full-size ver­sion.

A trav­el set of bot­tles is an indis­pens­able thing, for the pur­chase of which one usu­al­ly feels sor­ry for the mon­ey. If you know that a friend often flies, feel free to give her a set, she will def­i­nite­ly appre­ci­ate and try out the gift on her first trip.

For lovers of host­ing

21. Blender

Pho­to: @mike-jones,

A blender is an almost uni­ver­sal device that can grind food and crush ice. With it, you can pre­pare unusu­al smooth­ies, refresh­ing cock­tails, soup or, for exam­ple, your own plant-based milk. If a friend often receives guests and likes to spoil them with culi­nary delights, she will like such an assis­tant.

Blenders dif­fer pri­mar­i­ly in type: sta­tion­ary and sub­mersible. Sta­tion­ary, as a rule, is more por­ful and allows you to chop ice and nuts, sub­mersible will only cope with the prepa­ra­tion of mashed pota­toes and smooth­ies. Blenders are also divid­ed accord­ing to the mode, the num­ber of speeds and the vol­ume of the bowl (if are talk­ing about sta­tion­ary). An immer­sion blender will cost less, but it is more dif­fi­cult to work with it — the device con­stant­ly has to be kept on ight. When choos­ing a gift, be sure to build on the lifestyle and culi­nary skills of the future own­er.

22. Dishes

Pho­to: @engin-akyurt,

At first glance, it may seem that such a gift is bor­ing and even banal. No mat­ter how! Of course, it’s not worth giv­ing a fry­ing pan or a bak­ing dish, but to please a friend with beau­ti­ful plates or orig­i­nal cut­lery would be a great idea. If the host­ess often has guests, such a gift will not only please her, but will also be use­ful. But be pre­pared to spend mon­ey.

Would you like to donate plates? For sev­er­al years now, dish­es with an unusu­al relief, uneven orna­ment, imi­ta­tion of bruis­es and a cracked sur­face have been con­sid­ered the most rel­e­vant. You can also con­sid­er a min­i­mal­is­tic design that will nev­er get bored, or hand­made plates with a unique author’s pat­tern.

Set­tled for cut­lery? It is worth tak­ing a clos­er look at the options in bronze, rose gold, gold and black plat­ed.

23. Turk (cezve)

Pho­to: @samer-daboul,

Does your friend love deli­cious and high-qual­i­ty cof­fee? Feel free to buy her a Turk. In every­day life, are used to drink­ing cof­fee on the run, often buy­ing it at the first cof­fee shop come across on our way to work or, even worse, from the vend­ing machine in the office. That is why on the ekend it is so nice to invite friends, brew a fra­grant drink and enjoy it under inti­mate con­ver­sa­tions in a cir­cle of close peo­ple.

When buy­ing a Turk, the most impor­tant thing is to con­sid­er the mate­r­i­al, wall and bot­tom thick­ness. Turks can be made from sev­er­al mate­ri­als: cop­per, brass, alu­mini­um, ceram­ic and stain­less steel. The best option would be to pur­chase a cezve made of cop­per — it is not only the most pop­u­lar, but also the eas­i­est way to pre­pare a drink in it. The small­er the vol­ume of the Turks, the bet­ter the taste and aro­ma of the drink is pre­served. You can com­ple­ment the gift with a pack­age of high-qual­i­ty grains.

24. Cupboard

Pho­to: @karolina-grabowska,

The bowl is a shal­low dish with par­ti­tions that allows you to serve sev­er­al snacks on the table at the same time. It will add aes­thet­ics and diver­si­fy the table set­ting dur­ing din­ner with fam­i­ly, gath­er­ings with friends and a roman­tic evening with your soul­mate.

When choos­ing a gift, you should pay atten­tion to the mate­r­i­al, shape and size. The mate­r­i­al is suit­able nat­ur­al — wood or bam­boo. But choose the shape and design to your taste — only you know what your loved one will real­ly appre­ci­ate.

25. Frozen cocktail bases

Frozen cocktail bases
Pho­to: @lisa-fotios,

A real hit in recent years! The frozen base is a pre­mix of juice, fruits and berries. It remains to add soda or some­thing stronger to it — your cock­tail is ready. You no longer have to buy a lot of dif­fer­ent ingre­di­ents, look for the right pro­por­tions on the Inter­net and use a blender. But it will be pos­si­ble to imme­di­ate­ly arrange a par­ty and try out a gift with a friend!

How to choose the right gift for a friend on March 8

Gives advice on choos­ing a gift Danilo­va Anas­ta­sia, psy­chol­o­gist, body ther­a­pist:

— It is best to focus on your inner feel­ings when choos­ing a pre­sen­ta­tion. After all, you, as a close per­son, know the char­ac­ter of your girl­friend, her pref­er­ences and lit­tle «Wish­list». Per­haps she has shared with you secret desires or child­hood dreams more than once. Now is the time to delve into the pile of these mem­o­ries.

The cost of a gift is anoth­er cri­te­ri­on that many peo­ple think about. How much to spend? Here, focus only on your­self. If it is accept­able for you to spend five dol­lars on a joint trip to the spa, then act. If your plans do not include grandiose gifts, then hand cream or sets will always come in handy. There is no stan­dard for an ide­al gift or price, there is your mate­r­i­al and men­tal will­ing­ness to pay for them. The main thing is to give from a pure heart and with good inten­tions.

You should not lim­it your­self to gen­der and give all the reins of por to men, March 8 is just not about that. Giv­ing is pri­mar­i­ly about the exchange of ener­gy on a pos­i­tive lev­el. And if you are ready to please loved ones from a state of abun­dance, then such a spring hol­i­day is an excel­lent occa­sion for exchang­ing female ener­gy and fill­ing your­self.

Per­son­al psy­chol­o­gist Evge­ny Guryev com­ple­ments:

— March 8 is not just a num­ber on the cal­en­dar, but the gen­er­al mood and emo­tions of the peo­ple around. An invi­ta­tion to cel­e­brate the hol­i­day togeth­er at a deli­cious table and cheer­ful gath­er­ings will be a par­tic­u­lar­ly pleas­ant gift. This will strength­en your friend­ship and cre­ate a pos­i­tive atmos­phere.

If you still want to give a mate­r­i­al gift, then it would be appro­pri­ate to give some­thing inex­pen­sive, but mem­o­rable. This will add a fes­tive mood, but will not put a loved one in an awk­ward posi­tion, as if the gift re expen­sive. A nice gift would be some­thing relat­ed to the girl’s pas­sion and hob­by, with beau­ty guid­ance or just a small com­pli­ment that will remind you of your friend­ship.
