Flowers just happen to be the most popular gift for International Women’s Day!

The most popular flower in Europe to send for International Women’s Day is the fragrant mimosa flower. It grows from a tree or bush and has bright yellow, tiny, ball-like blooms in a bunch. Mimosa is not a very commonly found flower in the US and Canada but some shops will bring it in for Women’s Day.

Another representation of International Women’s Day is wearing a purple ribbon.
