It’s a very exciting time to know that someone you love is expecting a child. During this period, people organize baby showers and visit the mum-to-be with gifts in hand. If you’re not the best at selecting thoughtful gifts or have simply run out of ideas, it can be nerve-wrecking when trying to pick something that she’ll actually love.

Luckily, we have some amazing gift ideas you can get for the mums-to-be.

1. Belly headphones

With the rise of new technology, many innovative gifts for moms-to-be come up every day. Consider getting her a pair of belly headphones where she can play soothing music and stories for the baby or even play audio notes from loved ones in case they are far away. During the last weeks of pregnancy, babies have developed their sense of hearing. They are therefore able to listen keenly and hear what’s happening around them. Help her bond with her baby through a pair of these headphones and she will truly appreciate the thoughtful gift.

2. Skin care products

Now this is something most women will definitely appreciate. Everyone knows that a pregnancy can be quite strenuous to the body. She might not be getting enough sleep at night and battling with soreness and fatigue. Because of this, her skin might need some love and attention. Search the stores for eye gels, face masks, stretch-mark butters and other products that will help her feel refreshed. With this gift, she will feel pampered and cared for. She will also still appreciate these gifts once the baby is here because the sleepless nights and stress can continue for some time.

3. Maternity bras

One effect of pregnancy is sore and enlarged breasts. Normal bras won’t exactly provide her with the comfort that she needs during this time because they haven’t been designed for pregnant women. If you can get her size, purchase a few maternity bras that will be more comfortable and provide more support for her. The good thing about some of these bras is that they have more than one purpose. They have been designed to make things easier once she starts breastfeeding so that she won’t struggle to unhook while feeding.

4. Spa and massage gift cards

A pregnant woman definitely loves to be treated and pampered. An amazing gift idea for her is booking her an appointment at the spa where she will feel like royalty for a day. This is very thoughtful because it will help her ease some of the mental stress she has been experiencing, while getting pampered at the same time. This is therefore a powerful combination for mental and physical wellness. No woman in her right mind can turn this down.

5. Home cooked meals

Thoughtful gifts can also come in the form of acts of service. You don’t always have to stress yourself with expensive dates and gifts when your budget is a little tight. A creative way to make her feel appreciated is by finding out what she’d love to eat and preparing that meal for her. If you don’t really know how to cook, you can order her a take-out meal she likes and give her some attention. She might greatly appreciate having someone to talk to and spend time with. This is a simple but wonderful gift idea for her.

6. Pampers

This is one of the classic gifts especially when her due date is near. If she’s a new parent especially, she might not realize how fast babies exhaust diapers. Newborns can actually use up to ten diapers in a day so this can be quite costly. Get her some extra supplies when the due date is near. She’ll definitely remember you once the baby arrives.

After declaring that long distance relationships aren’t for her, Sherlyne Anyango might have bagged herself a new mzungu boyfriend. It’s barely days since she left the country to go to the States to ‘hustle’. According to her, it’s easier to hustle in the States with her twerking talent.

Well, she moved on quickly! This was the reaction of most of her fans after Sherlyne went live with her new catch. Most people were surprised by how fast she possibly got a boyfriend. But she hasn’t made it clear.

While this might seem unfair to her Kenyan bae, Oga Obinna, it was a mutual agreement between them to dissolve their relationship due to the distance between them.

”I’m a single boy again now😪😱!! Now with the standards you set who will fit in🤷🏿 who will fill your shoes??But Si Ni Life… But for now Kill Them with your AWESOMENESS and SECURE THE BAG!!! Don’t let nobody tell you otherwise. Plus there will always be space for you in my Heart and Kidney🙊🙈🙏🏿.”

In line to this, Sherlyne had also declared how much she misses Obinna and wrote back to him;

  ”Don’t make me cry. That’s life 😞😞. I feel bad. I miss you badly.”

Well, turns out she won’t be missing him any more after getting a new catch. Obinna has not yet responded to Sherlyne’s video posted on her Insta stories. I bet he’s not happy seeing her with another man.

Tips to help you get the perfect blazer Eve woman

 Choosing a blazer is key as it can either break or make your outfit (Image: Pinterest)

 

When it comes to buying or tailoring a new blazer, most people think it’s all about getting what fits. Even though that is one of the most vital things to focus on when selecting blazers, there are other things you need to look out for in order to have a perfect and versatile blazer.

Versatile is not just about being able to match most pieces in your closet, but something that will enhance your outfits and define your best features while at it. In case you are wondering on where to start with buying a blazer, start here:

 Always go for a colour that will pair well with most pieces in your closet (Image: Pinterest)

Yes, this is the first thing you should consider before making or buying yourself a blazer. You need to check your closet and consider the most dominant colour and pieces, can they be layered with a blazer or paired together?

Once that is set, you are good to go, though the more colourful a blazer is the more fun you will have pairing it with other pieces.

When selecting the perfect blazer always be very careful not to choose a small blazer. You might confuse a small blazer for a fitting one.

It should not be too tight that your shoulders cannot move in it or you can barely button it.

Although ladies are lucky they can go with any arm length, because it can be considered fashionable, ensure that it is your size. Also, avoid going for extra-large coats that will drown you and hide your best features.

 The design and texture of a blazer will play heavily on how good you look (Image: Pinterest)

A blazer is in between a suit jacket and a hoodie. Meaning, it should be able to pass for official and casual events. Let your guide be what you are buying it for.

There are different kinds of blazers ranging from open front blazers, single breasted blazers, belted ones, the list is endless.

Always go for a blazer that resonates with your style and closet items. Also, long blazers are classier and versatile than the shorter boyfriend ones. This is in terms of versatility.

Are you looking for a linen blazer, cotton or the suit material fabric? Do you want it shiny or matte? Do you need one with metal studded elements or with embellished buttons like the army? The kind of texture you go for will determine the way you dress your blazer.

Although blazers are meant to match with all outfits, the kind of design you go for can either limit your outfit choices or broaden your matching game.

 The longer the blazer, the more you can play around with your pieces (Image: Pinterest)

They say the longer the blazer, the double the respect. You already know what I mean by this. Longer blazers are more eye catching, trendy and versatile. It will be easier for you to pair them to a tiny skirt, pencil trouser or palazzos.

Also did I mention how well they pair with crop tops? Yes, when buying a blazer, the length is very important.

Residents of Pipeline Transami area are decrying poor drainage system that has caused sewage water to overflow in their area of residence.

The residents claim that the overflowing sewage is not only putting their lives at risk but also causing air pollution.

They have called on Nairobi Metropolitan Services and Nairobi City Water and Sewage Company to come on board and expand the sewer lines before more areas are flooded with raw human wastes coming from the blocked pipes.
“We want Major Badi and our leaders to resolve this menace immediately. It’s terrible many have been forced to shift their businesses because of the foul smell,” they said.
Pastor Joe Ndivoh of Word Evangelistic Explosion Ministries says that they have been forced to call off the Sunday School Service to protect the children from the smelly sewage.
‘‘We now fear that if prompt action is not taken then we will have a bigger health problem than this because we fear there could be an outbreak of water-borne disease anytime,’’ Pastor Ndivoh added.
