Gifts from the heart. This are the kind of gifts that are either made by ones hands or passed on from one person to another. One can decide to crotchet a sweater for the baby with their name on it. This shows that one took their time to make the same cloth with passion. They may also include gifts that were once given hence are being passed on from generation to generation. This may include toys that were once passed as gifts and they help to keep a good connection between the people who will share that particular gift.

Gifts for the mother. Often times people get excited about the baby and forget that the mother also needs some treats. Things such as babysitting, helping with housework or preparing nice meals are good idea.

They are usually tired or rather exhausted hence need some help. Pregnancy and feeding pillows are important too after the baby is born.

Books for mummy and baby books. This is especially more important for first time mothers. Books on baby related content will come in handy. Story books are also not a bad idea.

Foods. When the baby is born the mother is normally weak hence will take much time for her to gain strength. The foods should be able to last at least a month to enable the mother to gain stability to work on their own. Remember to also include baby foods on the shopping list and fruits and vegetables are essential to a baby shower.

Should Men Carry Gifts Everytime They Visit A Woman?

According to an article published in one of the local dailies, Ambassador Orie Rogo Manduli seems to have started a rather interesting conversation by asking women to stop entertaining men who visit them while carrying nothing but condoms.

She said that unless the man is your husband then he has to bring something whenever he comes visiting, regardless of whether he pays your bills or not.

Treating a woman right is the hallmark of a being a gentleman after all. You cannot go visiting a woman with nothing and expect to enjoy the food she cooks and watch her pay TV among other things. A gentleman should always bring a gift when visiting and condoms do not count as such.  Maina was in total agreement with that and so were other listeners. Here is the conversation in case you missed it:

As we mark mother’s day on May 10th, we have enough reasons to thank our mums or the mother figures in our lives. They have been a shoulder to cry on, our chefs, our first teachers and will always be there for us when we need them. What better way to say thank you mum than with a mother’s day gift.

Looking for last minute ideas on what to get mum come Sunday we got you covered, here are a few solutions

1. A mother’s day brunch treat
There is no better way than showing love to your mum by being with her and taking her out for a meal. It doesn’t even have to dent your pocket. Several restaurants have tailor-made offers for that particular day try Mediterraneo, Ole Sereni, Seven Grill, Que Pasa, Simba Saloon, Pablos, Cake City, Brew Bistro some with offers such as 50% off.


2. A spa treatment
Beauty is always a catch with women and a spa treatment will be a win for a mother. Give her one opportunity to get pampered in an all rounded spa where she can get a facial, a massage, get her hair and nails done etc. A spa voucher does not necessarily have to be used on the dday as she can keep it for later.


3. Jewellery
A women will never have enough jewellery and buying your mum a bracelet, chain, earrings maybe the perfect mother’s day gift. If you are a man and are doubting your taste in jewellery not to worry, a gift hamper from a gift store.


4. A home cooked meal
Mother’s day on a budget? A home cooked meal may come in handy. You can offer to make a special meal for the whole family and take over all the household responsibilities that your mother takes care of that day. It is her special day, make her feel special.


5. A shopping voucher
Mother’s sometimes forget to take care of themselves, she may not remember the last time she got herself a new pair of shoes or clothes, treat her to that shopping spree she badly needs. If you strongly understand her taste them buy her what she needs. It may be a shoe, bag, clothes etc.

Domestic abuse victims warned over Christmas presents

Jennifer Perry, CEO of Digital-Trust, which helps victims of digital abuse, says that “Surveillance technology is getting cheaper, better disguised, simpler to use and easier to find” and this is the reason why many people should be careful of the gifts they recieve.

After working with a range of domestic violence professionals, they say that  digital abuse is making it much more difficult to help of victims  violence and keep them safe.

With the high tech smart phones and tablets, a spouse could include an app that can turn on the microphone remotely and eavesdrop on their partner’s conversations.

Digital-Trust said listening devices can be hidden in everyday products such as extension cords, phone chargers and carbon monoxide detectors, all of which will function normally.

They add on to say that even stuffed animals can be used to spy as they can hide camera’s and microphones which can be used to spy.
