Additional Information:

@Daafftt,
Can you share a screenshot of what some of these ads look like on your end?

They are this style of ads

@Daafftt,
That does not look like a Brave approved ad – it’s more likely that you have notifications enabled for some site (intentionally or accidentally) that is now sending you these ads, or you may have some sort of other malware/device issue.

I would go to Settings --> Site Settings --> All sites and search for that website (which seems to be thegiftboxrewards.com) and clear any data/reset any permissions that may be set for it if it shows up. Additionally, I would run a virus/system scan on your device to ensure that you there’s no malicious software on your device.
