Many people associate this holiday with the arrival of spring and the first flowers. Every family has its own tradition of celebrating it. But if this year you want something new, but there are no options, we have prepared for you some exciting ideas on how to celebrate 8 March.
Head to the spa for treatments: massage, sauna, manicure, or styling. If there is no desire to visit such establishments, then arrange a spa at home! Very often, women do not have enough time for themselves, so a day off is a great opportunity to spend it on beauty and a good idea for celebrating 8 March.
Do what you refuse every day: hair mask, face, manicure, and pedicure, and take a long bubble bath. Now the choice of skin care cosmetics is so huge that almost all salon procedures can be done at home: from peeling to masks with hyaluronic acid.
Activities and Ideas
You can celebrate not only within the walls of the house – try a new sport or arrange a weekend outside the apartment. What to try:
- Urban entertainment: skating rink, roller drome, climbing wall;
- Dance and sports: master the basic rumba steps or hold a tennis racket;
- Quest rooms and open quests in the city;
- Walking tour of sights and favorite places;
- Offsite one-day excursion to another city for new experiences;
If you have other ideas for celebrating 8 March, feel free to implement them. The main thing is that you feel a surge of energy and start up a little from the routine of weekdays and weekends.
Organizing community events
If you cannot choose where to celebrate 8 March from year to year, we offer an unexpected solution: arrange a celebration at home. Yes, we have long lost the habit of cleaning and cooking for guests, preferring to sit in a restaurant. But trust me, a house party is different.
In order not to bother cooking, you can limit yourself to snacks, order food with delivery, or arrange with guests that each one will bring one dish for a common table. Then the home holiday will pass without unnecessary stress for the hostess.
Personal celebrations and self-care
Be lazy enough
International Women’s Day is the perfect time to finally get some real rest. Delegate household duties to a boyfriend, husband, or family members and be lazy for at least a day. Perhaps you miss just such a vacation by watching your favorite TV shows, reading books, or playing computer games.
This opportunity is especially valuable for mothers who are on maternity leave. On their shoulders is the daily irregular work of caring for a child. They will really need a lazy day that can be spent without flinching. So feel free to send your husband and child for a day out for a walk or visit.
Have a bachelorette party
Another original way to celebrate 8 March is to have a bachelorette party. Call your friends and spend the day (evening) the way you have long wanted. It can be a pajama party at home, a stroll through the bars, or a trip to your favorite cafe. Or maybe you have been planning to sit in a restaurant for a long time or go out of town for a day. In a women’s company, you can discuss everything that you would not like to say in front of men and choose the leisure that suits you. So feel free to add this idea to your piggy bank of ideas for celebrating 8 March.
There is a version: nothing pleases women as much as new purchases. There is some truth in this, so if you love shopping, then you can devote a holiday weekend to it. For girls, comfort, cute trinkets, and decor, which men often underestimate, are very important.
When shopping with friends, no one will say to your arm, “And why do we need another flower vase?” or “Curtains for the kitchen again?” And there will certainly be holiday discounts, so on this day you can update your wardrobe without hitting the budget.
8 March with her daughter
Why not spend this day with loved ones? We offer to celebrate the holiday with your daughter, sister, mother, or grandmother. Even if your children are already adults, it will be a great time.
We also invite you to congratulate other women dear to you: give sweets for tea to your favorite teacher, congratulate a colleague or godfather. Women’s holiday is not only about congratulations to mothers and grandmothers but also about women’s work in general.
