Celebrate and Gift Someone Special for Women’s History Month!

While Valentines Day has just passed and Mothers Day seems ages away, it’s still just the right time to show a special woman in your life how much you mean to her. As March approaches, start thinking about how you’d like to treat your special someone with a gift to celebrate Women’s History Month!

The public celebration of women’s history in this country began in 1978 as “Women’s History Week” in Sonoma County, California. Since that time, women’s history in the US has become a subject for celebration, resulting in many holidays and acknowledgements throughout the year. One such holiday includes women all over the world. The week including March 8, International Women’s Day, was selected to honor women around the world.

So where does the history begin beyond that special celebration in California? In 1981, Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) and Rep. Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.) co-sponsored a joint Congressional resolution proclaiming a national Women’s History Week. Then, in 1987, Congress expanded the celebration to a month, and March was declared Women’s History Month. The rest, as they say it, is history.

Celebrate a special woman in your life. Gift her just because with a gorgeous Gift Basket from!
