OUR BRAND STORY
I grew up cherishing my experiences and the sweet memories that life had gifted me. I wanted to not only make a difference in the lives of people but do it in a way that was more exciting.
In 2016, whilst working for a Food and Beverage Company, I coincidentally stumbled into an opportunity in the process of solving a challenge the company had. On the verge of all of this, I got my first order to do a gift hamper for kids on Children’s day which also included the company products. This was the beginning of my business journey.
Before Christmas that same year, I struggled with making decisions and postponed gifting my friends on their birthdays and celebrating their special days cause of the stress of finding the perfect gift and getting it across to them.
While searching for a gift boutique where I could find exciting product and experience gifts, I realized that there was no destination that offered bespoke gifting service tailor made for the recipient that I could order on-the-go and get it delivered to friends without going to the store or leaving my house.
In February 2017, armed with my business experience, exceptional organisational skill, great network, a vision for creating an online gift boutique and building a prolific business, I took the bold step to starting the Nigeria’s foremost bespoke gift company, O’lavanda Signature; changing the world of gift-giving right here in Africa.
Our mission is to create, organise and package exciting lifestyle product and experience gifts that make an awesome difference. We believe that gifts should be thoughtful and communicate better beyond just words; this guides each step we take in creating our signature gifts.
Join me and millions of others to share a little awesomeness all over the world by ordering a gift for someone today.
