Happy International Women's Day - a day that comes but once a year to highlight and celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women across the globe.
Here at GRACE, we believe women (and men if we're honest) should be intentionally thought of and celebrated all year round. But for the sake of the global day at hand, we've put together 4 ideas on how to appreciate and applaud those phenomenal women in your lives.
1. The Classic 'thank you' Note
Sounds basic, but goes a long way. Choose this simple yet effective way to show gratitude to your girl gang. Websites such as Canva, give you 100's of templates to choose from and can even print them off and have them delivered to your girl gang in no time, or if you'd rather the traditional method try out Paperchase for quality cards.
