Turn Your Friend Into Your Boyfriend With These Holiday Gifts

African women are often accused of being poor gift-givers. No matter what their male friends buy for them, the best they can do in return is boxers and singlets. Well, the problem is not that African women donโ€™t like to give their men gifts. Rather, they are often unsure of what to give.

Itโ€™s not all their fault anyway. There are still African men that are scared of being in a relationship with โ€˜successful womenโ€™. So, most African women give with caution so that they donโ€™t come off as โ€˜being successfulโ€™. While it is considered anticultural in some African societies for a woman to ask a man for a relationship, you can pass the message silently by gifting him one of these.
