The holidays are here finally! But we are still scrambling to choose the perfect gifts for the loved ones in our lives. What do they need? What do they expect? We wait till the day before Christmas to go scramble and spend hours in shops trying to find out what to buy.

There is another way to settle the gift dilemma, pre-planning. If you have an idea of what to buy, your shopping moments will be more effective and fruitful.

So how do we choose what to buy our dear mothers?

Voucher

Getting a gift voucher is one of the easiest form of gifts! You have no hustle to decide what to buy you eliminate the possibility of: if what you have bought your mum will actually like or she already has.

Gift voucher can range from a retail shop, shopping, outdoor adventures, cooking class, tech gadgets, beauty shop, spa treatment, and supermarket. You have a whole field of choices to pick from.

You give the ultimate gift plus your budget remains intact, everyone is happy.

Toiletries

Personal care is the most essential part of any human being. Toiletries are broken down to but not limited to: shampoo, conditioner, perfume, shower puff, mouthwash deodorant, and toothpaste.

If you can get toiletries that come with a bag, the better, helps in compacting all toiletries in one so she won’t be forgetting it at any trip.

Watch

A wrist watch is very useful, a good investment to give to anyone. You need to be particular and find out beforehand (if you already don’t know), whether she’s allergic to any metal or if she has a preference in terms of the wrist band material.

Please invest in a good watch, will last her for years. Don’t go buying knock offs on the streets because some vendor is shouting “200bob” from the top of their lungs.

If you can, get water resistant, the better: she can still wear it even if she needs to do some household chores.

Money

Who does not want to get money as a gift? I know I wouldn’t.

If all fails, and you still cannot get something to buy, just Mpesa! Or send Airtel money. Very handy, let her decide what to do with the money.
