How to surprise your man?

27 July 2016, 21:07 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - One thing I do not know how to do: buying a man a present.

First because they are so expensive. It is not like the way you get lucky with ladies stuff like shoes. You can get really nice shoes for a woman with Kshs1000; try finding an equally nice pair for a man.

Second, men do not do card. My little sister once made a card for Father’s Day for my father. He read it, exclaimed how nice it was, said thank you and then gave it back to her.

Men do not do cards. My ex once got some for his birthday, he gave them to me. They were from friends and the like, so instead of the man keeping them, he gave them back to me.

So what do you get a man that is nice to you and gives you loads of gifts as well?

You can try get things that are actually what he likes, cakes and dinners are so expected and the man will appreciate it but in the long run there are just some things that he likes and wants.

Free pass, not like in the one in that movie where the guy could sleep with as many women as he wants. But a pass when he does something that he needed to, you do not chop his head off.

Another free pass is where he can go and just do things with his boys without you terrorizing him. A dinner with you vs. good old time being clowns at the bar. He desires the last especially at a time when you want him to go to a wedding. Not that he does not like spending time with you, it is just about it being something you would normally do, we enjoy it more for our birthdays as compared to them men. At times, you just have to let a man be and do some things on your own. That is how you meet new people. You don’t always have to have him around.

Things he will actually like or gadgets are technically what work for men as gifts. Expensive but if you can do it that is what it is. Cards is an epic fail even if you made it with love.
