March is Women’s History Month, a time to reflect on the role of women in America, both past and present. It’s the perfect time to think about how best to empower ourselves and the women around us, as well as the heroes we hold near and dear, whether they are family members, friends or public figures.
And while we certainly try to celebrate women all year long, this is a time that calls for extra love and support for the women around us. Whether you shop from stores that support women’s charities or want to simply share a gift with your favorite gal, this month serves to show appreciation for everything women do.
To celebrate, we’ve curated a selection of gifts that not only empower women, but proclaim their accomplishments.
