If you have a secure storage facility, this is another profitable business possibility.

If you're a digital marketer, it's to send out proposals to freelancers and inform your social media followers about the benefits of employing your service.


10. Band for a Holiday Party

People use the end of the year to relax and enjoy good music; you can form a band to perform at the event center or at homes where family and friends congregate.

The fact that the song is dedicated to a family makes it precious, and you want them to pay for your service, depending on their financial situation.


12. Jewellery Sales

Necklaces and hand bangles, among other products, are among the most popular items throughout this season. If you don't have a large budget for this business, you can use the same business model that we used for shoe sales.


13. Organizing Events

Although event planning is not a new profession, what we witness year after year reveals that individuals enjoy preparing events during the "ember month," such as house warmings.


Not only that, but this is the time of year when friends get together for a reunion party, which necessitates the services of a planner to ensure that the occasion is memorable. Depending on the financial level and class of the organizers, you might earn anywhere from NGN80,000 to NGN500,000 by simply organizing an event.




Firecrackers, also known as Banger or Knockout, are always used to mark the beginning of the holiday season.


However, due to a security concern in Nigeria and the failure of users to follow safety precautions when using firecrackers, the Nigeria Police Force issued a ban.


If you live in a country where this Christmas gift is not prohibited, however, you can make a lot of money. Children adore it, and some adults, regardless of religious belief, purchase them to usher in the new year.
