Easter is an interesting time to be in Kenya. Everyone is buying something, everyone is traveling ‘shagz’ (sheng for rural home), and everyone is going to have a special meal with chicken or goat meat being the main focus of most delicacies.

The most interesting thing is according to a Survey done by Consumer Insight, while almost half of Kenyans are not choosy of what Easter Gift they’d like, most who know what they want, would like to be given money.

Meanwhile In 2012, the most preferred choices of Christmas Gifts by Kenyans according to Ipsos Synovate were Shoes, Clothes and Money. As of 2015, the research by Consumer Insight & Nation Media group revealed a huge change with the most preferred choice of Gifts by Kenyans being Money, A gift / shopping voucher & a mobile phone with very few interested in clothes or shoes as gifts.
