On March 8, International Women’s Day is a one-of-a-kind occasion to recognize and honor all of the important ladies in your life. It doesn’t matter if it’s your mom, grandma, a female friend, or a tutor, each forms an essential part of your life. They are our loyal supporters and our beloved companions.
For those of you who are fortunate to reside within commuting distance of your mother (or grandmother, or any female whose kindness and wisdom you are particularly thankful for), the finest present of all is to spend the day with her. But even if you live far away, it is still possible to show your love.
1. Custom Puzzles
More than a simple recreational pastime, putting a puzzle together helps minimize the risk of dementia and also alleviates the development of the condition. (This is true for the majority of mental activities and puzzles.) Turn a beautiful photograph into a customized puzzle for a unique gift.
Reading books is a favored everyday activity for over 70% of older women, so what better present than a lovely book? If your loved senior woman has a preferred genre, there isn’t much doubt about it. Otherwise, you may offer her a diary that was written and drawn by the grandchildren.
3. Donate in Her Name
What can you offer the senior woman who has everything? Perhaps a gift to those less privileged, given in her name. Discuss your donation goals with your loved senior woman and note her passions or chosen charities, or select a charity that all female family members admire.
4. Unique Cards from Grandchildren
If the woman you wish to celebrate is the grandmother, engage the grandchildren for a day and at the same time produce something special and genuine for the beloved matriarch of the family. The children may also create additional cards for other elderly women who live nearby.
5. Plan A Surprise Party
Prepare a secret women’s day celebration with the assistance of other family members. Serve the dishes and beverages that your mom or grandma would enjoy, the flowers she prefers, and music from her era.
6. Breakfast in Bed
Begin International Women’s Day early on March 8 by bringing her breakfast to bed. Prepare her favorite meals, such as waffles, omelets, or sausages, and accompany them with a cup of freshly squeezed orange juice or sparkling water. A beautiful letter on the tray reminds your beloved senior woman that you consider yourself fortunate in having her as a companion.
