Celebrating International Women’s Day: Thoughtful Personalised Gifts for Staff


8th March, New York City, 1857. One of the first organised strikes by working women, female textile workers protested unequal rights and poor working conditions. Here we are in 2024, and this date now marks International Women’s Day. It is genuinely one of my favourite holidays to celebrate.

Not only do I feel empowered and inspired, but it is also a time to appreciate the wonderful women we are surrounded by in our lives. Over the years, more and more companies are beginning to celebrate this important and feel-good day, providing gifts for their female employees.

As branding and merchandise experts, we always enjoy creating bespoke products for customers, even more so, when it helps celebrate important occasions with impactful messages.

Recognising women in the workforce is incredibly important. It’s a time to note how far we’ve come in history and highlight the significance of working alongside strong, independent women. From sharing stories, providing support, paving progressional paths,  reviewing internal practices, there are many ways businesses can embrace International Women’s Day on Friday the 8th March and beyond.

Personally, I am incredibly grateful for being able to work in an environment that acknowledges and uplifts its female colleagues, and where female colleagues are proud to be women. In celebrating such great events, we create a more unified and diverse culture in the workplace, with a chance to really ignite a ‘girl power’ movement. Working within a company that encourages female empowerment and growth can influence team morale, engagement, and overall happiness.

Ahead of the celebration, we’ve highlighted some gifts that go beyond the ordinary. It’s a curated selection, designed to inspire, connect, and express gratitude. With a climate-friendly focus, we want to change the way gifts are thought about in celebration of International Women’s Day, its meaning and representation.
