I am beyond proud of all the locally made products that one can get now. For Christmas, I think there is no way we cannot include these products in hampers or stocking or even give them out on their own. I have made an (inexhaustive) list for you!
A Christmas tradition is giving greeting cards. There are more than enough Nigerian themed cards to choose from now. Wish folks a Merry Christmas or a Merry Keresimesi by choosing cards from Not Just Pulp or Amama Design Studio. Amama Design Studio also sells yearly planners, leatherbound notebooks e.t.c for that special someone in your life (which could be you :)).
This Yuletide, why don’t you flaunt your afrocentric style with a limited edition “amama designs” Christmas Card! Call 08025240205 or 08037562017 to place your orders or walk in and pick up a 12-pack at DollHouseAfrique, Block 5, Shop 11, Bar Beach Towers, off Ahmadu Bello Way, Victoria Island, Lagos. @amamadesignstudio

With all the parties, family get-togethers and outings during this period, hair has to be on point!
Want to try a contemporary, threading style? This not like any old threading style you know. This allows your hair to bounce. You can choose different thread colors, choose to add extra hair for bulkiness and even choose any length you want. The style lasts for several weeks. Please note that you will need to book an appointment for this particular style.
If this is not your style, they offer many many other options – updos, twists, crochet braids e.t.c.
Did you know that you can purchase Natural Nigerian™ Products in the Yellowsisi salon as well? Just ask!

Get Fit or Cry Trying
People usually resolve to make good on their need to exercise by January, so getting them sportswear to get them motivated will be the perfect gift!
Help out with this resolve by getting your friends sportswear that is sewn in Nigeria. Yep! Sewn here. Joagh Sports is totally local and have a very comprehensive line. An added plus is that the prices are nothing that will break the bank. You can get an exercise bra for as low as N990. That is a massive bargain! You can mix and match as you like, so pick a grey top and a pink bottom or a black top and a purple bottom. You have total freedom to choose! Purchase here. Follow them on Instagram here.
Set the Mood at Home
During the holidays, give your home that extra special smell with the handmade candles, scents and more from Abela World. There are quite a number of variants to choose from. They even have beeswax candles for repelling mosquitoes. All the products are wonderfully packaged and would make a great addition to hampers and Christmas stockings.
