Plan ahead by taking a look at our shopping suggestions below. We’ve put together traditional gifts and sprinkled in some things that pack a good dose of female empowerment.
An excellent way to support women this holiday is by purchasing clothing with a cause like the products sold by Fair Trade Winds. They offer gifts, clothing and accessories only from labels dedicated to providing fair wages and working conditions to its laborers. A majority of garment workers tend to be women in poor parts of the world so purchasing from fair trade labels directly helps women improve their lives. With each item, you’ll find a story about where it was made such as this dress from a women’s cooperative in Ghana called Global Mamas.
Shipping perfume, a common gift for this holiday, is possible with Borderlinx. It’s important to know that perfume can only be shipped through our U.K. hub and each shipment can’t be over 500ml. Read more about shipping perfumes out of the U.K. hub by reading our FAQ page.
This pick is from a line called A Dozen Roses. All their fragrances have a classic rose scent with a modern update. Bonus: the stunning bottle doubles as home decor. It will look beautiful atop a nightstand or dresser. Buy it from Amazon U.K.
If the woman on your gift list loves to read, she’ll appreciate getting a book on March 8th. Consider something inspiring like “I Am Malala” by activist and Nobel Prize winner Malala Yousafzai. In her memoir, she tells her incredible story of being shot by the Taliban and her recovery to continue fighting for women’s education. For a limited time, buy the paperback for under $9 on Amazon.
For modern jewelry options, head over to German retailer LaLa Berlin. The store carries necklaces, earrings, rings and bracelets that will fit different budgets. Save money on shipping to Russia by using your Borderlinx U.K. address at checkout.
This bracelet is from Jorge Morales. Two gold plated brass rings surround four pearls for a design that can be worn for any occasion. Buy it here.
In March, it’s still pretty cold in Russia so consider gifting something that helps alleviate dry skin. This gift set from the U.S. brand MAKE includes a salve and exfoliant. Products from this line are paraben-free and not tested on animals. The company also donates 10% of its sales to the We See Beauty Foundation which helps advance female entrepreneurs in the U.S. Buy the set here.
Use Our Consolidation Service to Save When Shipping to Russia
If you’re buying for multiple people on your list, use our consolidation feature to save on shipping. One way carriers determine shipping costs is by charging each package a minimum fee based on its weight. This can get expensive when you’re shipping lots of packages. Borderlinx eliminates the increased cost by virtually combining packages into a single tracking number so our carrier charges the minimum fee only once.
To use our consolidation service, we offer 30 days of free storage at our warehouse facilities. This gives you more time to shop and allows you to wait until all your packages have been delivered to our hubs. Read more about Borderlinx’s consolidation service here.
