1. Anything related to fitness
Kenyan ladies are obsessed with how do they look. They care slightly more of their weight than women from other corners of the Planet.
So making such a gift to a Kenyan lady means giving her a hint that she is fat. Even if she is slim, that will make her feel nervous of what you are thinking of her. Probably she will take it as a sign of her obvious obesity, which doesn`t even exist.
Take our advice and don`t buy anything related to fitness, unless the lady asked you to.
According to Tuko, you should never regard money as a present to a girl from Kenya. You can put an end to your relationships by giving her money for a present and here is why: either your lady will make taking money from you, her regular habit or she will regard you as careless and egoistic towards her feelings. Giving cash for a present is a negligent thing to do when you are in romantic relationships with somebody. Be more caring and try to remember what hints she gave you before Christmas. Spend that cash to buy that thing she was hinting on. You will give her a sign that you care of what she likes which will be the best proof of your feelings towards her.
Ladies from Kenya have certain prejudices towards alcohol. Especially when a man brings a bottle of wine as a present on a Christmas Eve. Your gift will be immediately misunderstood as something ill-conceived, and you can get into trouble. Especially if the girl is religious or she doesn`t know you well enough. You can put an end to your relations very quickly if you make this mistake. And we hope we prevented you from it.
Flowers has a different meaning to Kenyan women. While it is regarded as a universal present for ladies in other countries and continents, in Africa things are somewhat different. For Kenyan women, flowers have a different connotation. When you give a bouquet to a Kenyan lady, that means you want to ask her forgiveness for something awful you did. That can let her think that you are trying to put her at ease before saying something terrible. So if you don`t want to be misunderstood – throw flowers out of your mind. If you have no other options – buy some flowers in pots. They will stay in her house for a long time as a souvenir of a great Christmas evening you`ve spent together.

5. Sport Tickets
Abstain from the thought of giving your lady tickets to any sports activities as a gift; especially if she is not interested in any sport. If you are a football lover or you are fond of hockey – invite you friends to watch a match any other day, but don`t do that to your lady on Christmas. She will take it as an insult, or a gesture of ignorance. She can also think you are infantile and don`t understand the basics of adult relationships. So we advise you to put your obsession with sport aside and think of something she will appreciate – a music concert or an invitation to some festive party.
6. Self-loving presents
Some people are always looking for ways to kill two birds with one stone while making presents to somebody for Christmas. They regard presents as investments and buy things which can be useful for them as well. It`s like offering an electric drill or super-new car tires to your lady for Christmas. Don`t let her think you are this type of guy. Don`t be seduced by the possibility to get something you need as well. Try to think only of what she wants. That can bring your relations to a different level and show her how caring and loving you are.
7. Cooking utensils and appliances
Usually, it is a lady who is doing all the kitchen work. It is taken for granted that your Christmas festive table will be prepared by her as well. So giving her kitchen appliances or utensils can be mistaken for some mockery. We cannot predict the reaction of a woman you want to give a mixer or a new frying pan as a gift, but I think you can imagine it by yourself. Better try helping her and take some of the kitchen responsibilities at least for a Christmas evening. Cooking together is always fun, even if you don`t know each other well there is a possibility to show you from a better side and help your lady with the kitchen routine.
