You do not need big gestures, something as simple as cooking them their breakfast on the special day can also work magic.
The turn of the twentieth century was marked with voices of dissent by women across the globe. In 1908, about 15000 women marched on the streets of New York demanding better pay and voting rights. In 1909, the first women’s day was observed in the U.S. Then Clara Zetkin, a leader of the Women's Office for the Social Democratic Party in Germany proposed the idea of women’s day in Copenhagen, Germany. And thus, for the first time, people in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland celebrated International Women’s Day on 19 March 1911, while Russia celebrated theirs on 23rd February, between the years 1913 and 1914. Much later down the line, March 8 was decided as the date to celebrate International Women's Day, a day to honour and celebrate women across all walks of life, across the globe.
While it is true that you do not need a day to acknowledge the immense contribution of women in your life, but there’s no harm in taking time out to make them feel seen and appreciated. You do not need big gestures, something as simple as cooking them their breakfast on the special day can also work magic. Here are some ideas that you may like.

Besan Paneer Cheela
Cheela is a kind of an Indian crepe, but unlike dosa, it is not very crispy, it is thin, but also very soft and spongy. Besan cheela is one of the most beloved North Indian breakfast items. Adding some crumbled paneer in the filling could help take things up a notch flavourwise.
