March has arrived with its spring vibes, blue skies, and a dedicated calendar spot for International Women’s Day (IWD). Marked annually on March 8th since 1911, IWD celebrates and honours the achievements of women all around the world. The occasion is recognised by men and women alike so we can work together towards a better and equal place for all. As Good Housekeeping reminds us with an empowering quote from G.D. Anderson, “Feminism isn’t about making women strong. Women are already strong. It’s about changing the way the world perceives that strength.”
While there are many ways to honour women’s strength – from attending events and donating to charitable causes centred on women’s issues, or supporting female-led businesses – the simplest gesture to show a lady in your life that she is cherished is by gifting her something special. As Ntozake Shange so aptly put it, “Where there is a woman, there is magic,” and the perfect way to multiply that magic is with some beautiful flowers.
Mimosa is probably the most celebrated flower for IWD as it is commonly thought to represent the feminine world, a symbol of strength, sensitivity, sensibility, and cheerfulness. Other popular choices include lilies, hydrangeas, roses, tulips, gerberas, and orchids– all of which are available in Dubai. And according to Flora Queen, roses, tulips, lilies, and gerberas are the top choices for International Women’s Day this year.
