1. Häagen-Dazs: 1-1 scoops and buy 2 get 1 free pint

“Reuben Mattus made our flavours, but Rose Mattus made us famous.” How’s that for a new (sort of) tagline?

This International Women’s Day, Häagen-Dazs is celebrating their female founder, Rose Mattus, who was one-half of the husband-and-wife duo behind the beloved ice cream brand. Rose loved vanilla, so they’ve created a limited edition “Founder’s Favourite” pint that you can get for free when you purchase 2 handpacked pints from any Häagen-Dazs shop.

If 3 pints is almost 3 pints too many, grab a buddy and head down to Häagen-Dazs shop to enjoy their buy 1 get 1 free scoop promotion from now till 10 March. Just be sure to get your ice cream before 5pm.

 

2. LiHo: 50 cents off all regular drinks

LiHo Tea is making International Women’s Day sweeter by giving everyone (yes, men too!) 50 cents off all regular price drinks if you show up wearing pink. Don the sweet shade and visit any LiHO Tea outlet from now to 9 March to enjoy this promotion.

Small catch: You do need to be a new or existing myLiHOTEA member. So if you aren’t already a member, you’ll need to sign up for a free membership.

 

3. Toastbox: Nanyang Kopi and teacake/curry puff at $3.80 

From now till 10 Mar 2023, you can get a cup of Nanyang Kopi and a slice of teacake or curry puff at just $3.80 at Toast Box in celebration of International Women’s Day.

The best part is that it’s almost as no-frills as it gets—you don’t need to sign up for any membership, just flash the Instagram post below to Toast Box staff at participating Toast Box outlets. That’s all of them except for the outlets at Singapore Press Holdings, Marina Bay Sands and Resort World Sentosa.

For something shiny and sparkly this International Women’s Day, head over to Michael Trio to get 15% off their tennis jewellery from now till 19 Mar 2023.

Tennis jewellery refers to bracelets and necklaces that comprise a symmetrical chain of (usually) diamonds. It’s an elegant, timeless look as a gift to yourself or the woman in your life.
