About MarketPlace Africa
Shipping giant DHL partnered with e-commerce powerhouse Mall for Africa. Mall for Africa was created as an online platform where Africans can sell their one-of-a-kind handmade goods and sell to the US, UK and global market. Now customers seeking to purchase a unique gift this holiday season can feel good as they are buying directly from the source in Africa. This helps boost the economy.
Variety of Gift Ideas
Marketplace Africa offers fabulous products in fashion, jewelry, handbags, body care, and select home décor items. You will be sure to find something for everyone on your list. One of my favorite items is the Origami Bag. The angular design and high quality fabric used in this bag reflects the thought and care we give to that which we treasure. “ASAKE MI OH” literally translates to “that which we gather to care for.” The acts and functions are posited in our design. An item that is used both to gather and to protect lovingly.
If you have a budget, then Marketplace Africa has an array of products that can fit any price range that you are looking for. There is something for everyone no matter the price, sex, age, or size. Here are my top 3 gift ideas for under $20 price range:
