This year, International Women’s Day is all about imagining a gender equal world; forging equality across the sexes, and celebrating women’s achievements. Treat your woman well and show her your appreciation with a nice, thoughtful gift that she will actually like. Here are five that we would love to receive.
Planet Beyond is a visionary earphones brand that has taken a very functional, everyday gadget, and turned it into a fashion accessory. The earphones are beautiful products on their own, but are elevated with different charm attachments that are added on like a piece of jewellery. As a gadget, it actually offers surprisingly good audio quality; the bass is full and warm, the mids are clear and balanced, while the treble isn’t sharp but pleasing to the ear. Music sounds really good with these earphones, and they sit in the ear securely and are comfortable.
Why buy? Good sound and its “jewellery” design will resonate with women who love their gadgets a little more feminine and fashionable. There are Gold, Rose Gold and White Gold versions, but we’re really loving the new Blush Pink and Lilac Purple editions that make perfect gifts.
This one might sound like it’s for the boys, but girls do love a good mirror in the shower. This one is made from shatter-proof glass, is fogless, has integrated lights, is waterproof, and rechargeable. It can be mounted on a shower wall easily through a magnetic mounting bar, which also allows the mirror to be easily removed for charging.
We’ve found the perfect desktop solution to charging our favourite Apple devices; this charging pad can charge three things at once — iPhone (with wireless charging capabilities), AirPods (or other Qi-certified wireless charging cases) and Apple Watch, which can charge both flat or in Nightstand mode. It comes in sleek black or white, and is perfect for your work desk, or the night stand.
If she’s crafty, she’ll absolutely love anything from Cricut. This mini heat press is light, portable and easy to store. Its ceramic-coated heat plate can transfer iron-ons to small projects like shoes, caps, soft toys, and pockets, and it comes with an insulated base and has an auto-shutoff feature so its pretty safe. While the machine is really simple to use, the results are professional. Again, she’ll love it.
Does she drive? These are the most luxurious car diffusers that will make the journey smelling better than a bed of roses. The Jo Malone London version is available in three of the brand’s most popular scents: Wood Sage & Sea Salt, Lime Basil & Mandarin, and Peony & Blush Suede. For Diptyque, the diffuser uses an innovative system of cold diffusion; and like the Jo Malone one, it’s discreet and sophisticated, and attaches nicely to the car’s ventilation grill.Scents to choose from include Roses, Fleur D’Oranger, Baies, and 34B.
