It’s the most wonderful time of the year—the season to make wishes, give gifts, and spread love. It’s also a good time to take stock and count your blessings for the coming year.
For MBN, it is an opportunity to celebrate the excellence of Nigerian brands and businesses. This has inspired them to launch Nigeria’s first-ever advent calendar featuring only Nigerian-owned brands.
Each featured brand has been carefully selected and will be celebrated for its hard work and dedication to creating superior quality products for Nigerian consumers. This advent calendar reaffirms the high demand for Nigerian creativity locally and abroad.
There is something for everyone in the beautifully crafted, richly green-colored box, which features lifestyle items ranging from books to self-care products, fashion items, and food. For lovers of sweet-smelling spaces, Dang! Lifestyle makes sweet fragrances.
For lovers of books, A Possible Future is a great recommendation as a gift. The box also features yummy chocolates from Dune and much more.
What’s really in the box?
