Gift shops in Nairobi are a dime a dozen, because well, we all love getting gifts don’t we? We love presents on special occasions like our birthdays, anniversaries, over the holidays…anytime really. But on the other side of the coin is gift shopping. While some enjoy the thrill and challenge of finding the perfect gift, some not so much. For most of us the cliché gifts such as dinner at hotels or restaurants, perfume or flowers will do just fine. It doesn’t have to be so.
This week on Yululate, we are helping those who find gift shopping challenging, discover some awesome gift shops in Nairobi. In these gift shops you can find unique gifts and souvenirs for both men and women. Some of them are strictly online gift shops but other have physical shops.
