7 brilliant Christmas gift ideas under ₦25,000

by | Dec 9, 2016

Christmas is upon us and several shops (both virtual and physical) are putting up fancy decorations to reflect the season. In the spirit of this festivity, you are most likely thinking of a gift for that special friend, child, colleague or spouse.

Finding a suitable christmas gift that will not bore a big hole in your pocket is a bit tasking,  no thanks to the Naira. However, we intend to make shopping easy for you by bringing you gadgets under ₦25,000.

Portable Power Bank

One item that would always be appropriate as a gift (thanks to PHCN’s inconsistent supply of electricity), is a portable power bank. A 30000mAh power bank can make a whole world of difference when it is fully charged.

Freaking on point except for one thing:

Selfie stick. Duh!

Regarding the powerbank, I’d recommend anyone buying to try and get Xiaomi’s Mi Pro.

Yup, It’s not available in Nigeria at the moment, but please ship it for free from Aliexpress or Gearbest (2-3 weeks tops).

That bank is the real deal!

Charges from 0 to 100 in about 3 hours (thanks to the USB type C) plus it’s totally sleek. – I own one.

Get that for me for XMAS and trust me, I’d remember you each time “NEPA takes light” – which is, Every. Single. Day.

By the Way, that “30000mAh” bank you linked to, the one on Jumia, is a joke. Anybody purchasing would be better off with an Anker Powercore – more expensive, but worth Every. Single. Penny. and like the Xiaomi, It’s Sturdy too.

I too dey talk. 🙁

Nice article Emma. 🙂
