“Supporting Black Businesses, one box at a time"
Ordered two different boxes during the holiday season. One for my family and one to gift, and I could not be happier!Every product was amazing! We are definitely going to be buying more from the businesses that were in the box.I’m really looking forward to ordering again and seeing what else we get!
Personal delivery of unique household items, art, and other surprises - something for everyone and provides a much needed spotlight and awareness of black owned businesses... a win, win, win! Highly recommend.
I enjoyed everything in the box I received. I loved the variety of items and being able to support black entrepreneurs of all ages. I highly recommend ordering!
MNBlackBox is a great way to learn about so many different local black businesses and entrepreneurs. Your box will have a variety of products that will make you want to dig a little deeper and learn about who each amazing item. Plus, when your box is delivered it feels like Christmas...every month.
They have many options for boxes. I tried the Sweets and Treats Box and we loved it and everything inside. Unboxing was really fun. There are many different items. So many diverse and delicious treats! Treats that you know are made with love. It's great knowing you are helping local folks and their small businesses. Delivery was timely too. Highly recommended, order for yourself and for gifts!
We used Black Box for our team’s holiday presents this year - they were fantastic! It was great to learn about local companies and try new treats I’ve never had before. The Chin Chin was delicious.
