International Women’s Day is about celebrating and recognizing the contributions of women to our world. It’s not just about calling attention to major events in history, but also honoring the women who shape and enrich our lives daily. To make celebrating, treating, and honoring these women easier than ever, we put together an e-gift basket featuring businesses that are run by women. We wanted to make sure that it would refresh and revitalize, and of course give you the satisfaction of supporting woman-owned small businesses.
If you’re looking for a gift for your girlfriend, wife, mother, sister, or some other important woman in your life, take a look below. I present to you Lotus Stone Design’s 2022 International Women’s Day gift basket:
One of the most important ways to care for ourselves is to mindfully move our bodies. However, getting out of the house to go to a fitness class isn’t always convenient. That is why Wildlight Yoga brought the class to you. Whether you want to join a live class and interact with your teacher or access a robust library of classes on-demand, Wildlight Yoga brings those options straight into your home.
And, if you need a more radical, life changing event, Wildlight offers yoga retreats in Guatemala. I’d say that it’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity but, technically, you can go more than once.
If Lavender and Honey Goat’s Milk Soap sounds as sweet and creamy to apply to your skin as it would be to eat (in non-soap form), that’s because it is. Suds by Sasha makes some of our favorite artisanal, hand-crafted soaps and balms. What better way to treat your skin right after some self-loving yoga than to bathe yourself with great soap? Add a shower steamer to make your experience even more relaxing. MY personal favorite is the lemongrass and poppyseed soap. It smells amazing and has just the right level of exfoliation.
Every winter I suffer through trying and failing to find a lotion that will stand up to the dry skin that comes with the season. Now, I grab some Peppermint Pedango lotion. It has arnica to relieve aches and pains and the lotion is an excellent moisturizer. While it’s labelled as a foot cream, no need to stop there! Plus, it smells wonderful, too. Overall, it’s just very lovely and a nice self-care treat.
chARiTyelise makes colorful, whimsical ceramics that fill your kitchen with fun. How delightful would your morning tea be if stirred with one of her hand crafted spoons and a scone on one of her colorful serving trays? Answer: immensely delightful! Plus, she stocks clay texture stamps for crafters.
Did you know that elderberries have been shown to reduce cold and flu symptoms? I didn’t. I’m usually skeptical of these types of claims but elderberry has the receipts to prove it. In addition, it makes a delicious tea (just add hot water), flavoring for tea or coffee, or as a low sugar syrup that you can add to a variety of foods, such as pancakes, ice cream, or mixed drinks. HealthJunkie makes our favorite elderberry syrup.
Lotus Stone Jewelry hand crafts jewelry for every occasion — whether you’re wearing sweats or your LBD (I know. It’s sweats for me, too) — but gifts that really shine at Lotus Stone Jewelry are our custom hand-engravable cuffs. If you’re not sure what to say, our tiny heart studs are a cute reminder that we don’t always need words to say I love you or I miss you or just I care.
