Heritage Box Collaborates with Afrikan Gems on Afro-Centric Gift Boxes for Mother’s Dayby GDN Shared Post May 6, 2016
Heritage Box is partnering with newly launched company, Afrikan Gems, to offer authentic afro-centric Queen Edition gift box sets in honor of Mother’s Day.
Heritage Box is a subscription box service created to provide children of African heritage with engaging ways to learn their history and African geography. The starter box includes an Ancient African activity and informational booklet, a book on ancient Egypt, Ancient Africa figurines/keepsakes and a folktale book on the Ancient African Kingdoms and more.
The Heritage Box was recently listed among the Top Kid’s Subscription Boxes by the popular mother and academia blog, Mamademics. It was also listed in Essence Magazine’s “10 things we are talking about” in April 2016. The company’s decision to partner with Afrikan Gems is based on aligned priorities.
CEO and Founder of Heritage Box, Trish Lewis, said: “The launch of Heritage Box has uplifted 5 families in Nairobi due to the production of Masai souvenir boxes for Heritage Box. We are so proud to be able to uplift families in Africa economically through our business.”
She added, “Afrikan Gems shares this same philosophy of economic empowerment and sources products from workshops that support female entrepreneurs in Africa. We wanted to create a high quality curated box to celebrate mothers as they are the primary teacher’s in passing down family values, culture and heritage.”
With Mother’s Day fast approaching, individuals stumped for unique gift ideas now have an excellent option for under $100. The Queen Edition gift set oozes class and will delight any mother with an appreciation and love for African heritage.
The gift box features an assortment of specially selected items including:
A music CD with a collection of African music
Rooibos tea from South Africa
A beautifully handcrafted elegant clutch from Tanzania
