With 3 days to go to Christmas, some of us are the worst when it comes to gift giving. Be it Christmas, Birthdays, Anniversaries or just any gift giving occasion. It’s a struggle. ( I opt for dinner or a shopping vouchers ) When it comes to Christmas I believe that most people go out of their way to get their loved ones a gift that is meaningful and full of heartfelt emotion.
The trick to gift giving is getting someone something that they really want, something that they love already or something that they would have never expected. In case this translates into huge loads of cash you can always find a substitute that performs the same function but is less pricey. Like going for an Audi instead of a Mercedes Benz kind of substitute.
In case you don’t have time to go around shopping and looking for items, here are a couple of gift ideas that anyone would love anytime of the year especially this Christmas.
Depending on the age and the use of the bag, there are a lot of options in this category. From Ankara to denim to canvas Suave Kenya has a huge collection of bags especially backpacks. These are perfect for college, high school, carrying around chargers and devices in the car, carrying an extra pair of t-shirts for the holidays, or swimming trunks for the beach, or lotions and items for a day by the pool. These can also be custom made to suit the style and taste of the guy being gifted, but since this is last minute shopping you can always consider custom making for another occasion.
