While appreciating your partner is a must every single day, make this International Women’s Day extra special for the woman in your life.
What is International Women’s Day, you may ask? It is a day that celebrates the achievements of women – from cultural, political, and historical wins – every year on March 8.
To help make your life easier, we’ve suggested a few ideas which you can trot out on the day itself, or any time of the year!
1. Book a surprise trip
Make it an extended weekend as you both sail out into the high seas with Royal Caribbean International. Whether with children or not, there’re plenty of things to do, see, and mainly have fun. We promise the trip’s worth it. She’s worth it.

SAFRA members enjoy a free upgrade to a Balcony stateroom for the price of an Interior stateroom on Royal Caribbean’s Quantum of the Seas till April 2022. The same offer applies to Royal Caribbean’s Spectrum of the Seas from April 11 to May 30, 2022, as well as October 2022 sailings. For more info, go to www.safra.sg/promotions/royalcaribbean.
2. Court her all over again
We’re not saying you should stop courting your partner to begin with, but we know things can get mundane after a while. Like Valentine’s Day, make her International Women’s Day one to remember! Of course, this depends on her preferences, but off the top of our heads, we’re thinking flowers, love letters, little gifts, dinner… basically anything that’ll make her feel ultra pampered.

3. Breakfast in bed
One of the most romantic ways to show your affection is serving breakfast in bed. Don’t panic if you’re not a regular in the kitchen – breakfast doesn’t have to be complicated. Think eggs and pancakes or toast and tea, it all boils down, again, to her preferences. If nothing works, we know McDonald’s breakfast never fails. If you’re so inclined, add pizzazz to breakfast with a stalk of rose, or her favourite bloom.
4. Dinner for two
If you’ve run out of ideas, dinner for two never fails. For the occasion, whisk her to Spruce, which serves beautifully-plated modern European eats. Choose from one of Spruce’s two outlets that are located on Tanglin Road and Hillview Rise, where you’ll enjoy the place’s laidback atmosphere amid quaint and tranquil surroundings.

5. Spa day
Is your partner in need of some R&R? A soothing spa session will work wonders for her. Depending on your budget, there are plenty of spas to choose from in Singapore, including the tranquil The Spa by The Ultimate at SAFRA Punggol, or Sri Bayu Zen Odyssey Spa at SAFRA Yishun.

6. A day at the theme park
For thrill-seekers, a day at the theme park, replete with exhilarating rides, is perfect. Even if she isn’t up for the rollercoaster rides, you can simply soak in the park’s fun atmosphere. We might be overthinking it, but there’s something quite romantic about going to the theme park as a couple.

7. Arrange a masterclass for her
Take her mind off work with a masterclass session that might just inspire her. Think classes for floral arrangements, crafting desserts or art workshops; the choice is really hers.
For instance, Room to Imagine, a studio and creative space, is offering several workshops for those seeking their inner artists. Classes include resin art, acrylic pour, alcohol ink, and even online classes.
