International Women’s Day – A Curated Gift Guide

International Women’s Day – A Curated Gift Guide

International Women’s Day is a special time to show our love for the favorite ladies in our lives. Falling on March 8th each year, the day is arguably the most important day of Women’s History Month each year

Show her you care with a thoughtful gift. My curated selection this year begins with Prone Cushion, the world’s first cushion designed for laying on one’s stomach, is the ultimate relaxation gift. Proning (lying on your stomach) is scientifically proven to relax muscles, relieve stress, and help to calm down. From NASA developed foam to its multi-layered memory foam structure, Prone Cushion is loaded to complete the comfort experience for the woman in your life who dreams of self-care and relaxation.

Fashionable finds include:

Coco on the Go’s fun, colorful and comfortable leggings and sports bras will get her motivated to get outside and crush her goals. The brand focuses on staple fitness pieces that stand out for their quality, textures, and sizing.  The company founder takes inspiration from her trips to Brazil, where she experienced women of all body types radiating beauty, vitality, and self-assurance. My pick is the sexy Black Faux Leather Bra.

I would recommend anything by Spicy Lingerie, an affordable. stylish collection of intimates, sleepwear, swimwear, and trendy women’s clothing. Spicy Lingerie is well known for its inclusivity for every body type, carrying sizes from extra small to plus. Don’t let the name fool you, there’s much more to the brand than lingerie. My finds include the White Fishnet Feather Mini Dress, the Multi-Color V-Neck Dress, or Taylor’s Black Cami & Pants.

Mar Soreli , a line of 100% handcrafted, artisan Italian-made Friulane women’s shoes are now available for the first time in the United States, and should definitely be on your radar – gorgeous shoes that are uber comfortable. Each pair of Mar Soreli shoes uses materials and methods that are locally sourced, ethical in nature, and planet conscious. Featuring velvet and silk uppers made from repurposed fabric and soles from recycled bicycle tires, each pair of Mar Soreli shoes gives new life to materials that would have otherwise been discarded.

“I was inspired by these shoes as a child, so was excited for the opportunity to work directly with these talented local artisans with a long heritage of craftsmanship and provide them with a platform to showcase their craft by introducing Mar Soreli to a new audience in the United States,” says brand co-founder Valeria Campello.

Meghan Victoria, founder and CEO, established the Canadian brand Sol Kyst with the vision of extending size inclusivity beyond the clothing category. Sol Kyst is committed to crafting eyewear specifically designed for wider faces, filling a void in the market, offering true size inclusivity, with sizes ranging from 135 to 158mm. Since its inception, Sol Kyst has evolved into a community for her “wider-faced babes,” where they can feel confident in their own skin.

“One of my favourite aspects of running a small business is discovering all the extremely passionate and empowering female-run businesses. On International Women’s Day, we are here to lift each other up and celebrate our successes!,” comments Victoria.

Let’s not forget the ever popular baubles and bling…
