You get to see them and one way or the other you cross paths with them at home and start-up mini conservations that grow with time.

2. Visiting home more often: If you live away from your parents visiting home more often will help strengthen or the relationship you have with them. You get to see your parents more often, talk to them and ran some errands for them.

6 Christmas Gift ideas to buy for a Nigerian mum

Christmas is fast approaching, the bell will soon start ringing, festive feelings are setting in and shops are beginning to advertise Christmas lights, trees, and candles for affordable prices.  While we wait to celebrate Christmas in 2019, have you started thinking of which gift to present to your mother? She deserves it, doesn't she?

Special gifts to give to a Nigerian mum this Christmas. They don't cost a human head, you have nothing to worry about.

1. Skincare products: Most people tend to give food items and cash as gifts in Nigeria but there is more you can do for your mum. Getting her beauty products that can help enhance her skin is totally a good win for you and her. There are lots of good brands made with natural substances that can help moisturize her skin to look healthier and younger.

2. Vacation: This might sound a bit weird but some African mothers need a really good push and a reminder before they (Accept) to take a vacation. Mothers are more focused on us and most times they forget to explore more than their environment or where they grew up from. Buying and surprising them with a trip to take time out from motherly duties (tho, in reality, there is never a day off for mothers) to enjoy the beauty of other countries, states and towns is a very good idea.
