Gifting makes room for building relationships.

Giving is in the nature of us who work at Worldbride Magazine. There isn’t a bad time to give, and we keep this in mind as seasons of marriage, holidays, birthdays, and other festivities come and go.
A few months past, Worldbride magazine partnered with Height and Sharp Magazine Middle East during Black History Month, the week of New York Fashion Week on Valentine’s Day, to launch the gifting suite. Midtown’s chic event space, the Manhattan Manor, hosted its venue as a curated selection of companies exhibited their products so New Yorkers and those visiting would have a unique shopping experience. Each share their experience participating in the gifting suite and the benefits surrounding collaboration with industry professionals. WBM highlights what the experience meant to these companies.

The energy in the gifting suite was highly vibrational! From meeting and networking with fellow vendors to talking with and meeting new people who came to visit the space. WBM Magazine created a fun and welcoming space. Regarding building relationships, my company, Bifties Gifts,  offers convenience and ease. We understand the value strong relationships bring. Through our gifting service, you are strengthening relationships with those in your circle and supporting multiple Black-owned businesses in the process”.  Instagram | Website | Facebook

The Gifting Suite at the Manhattan Manor, presented by World Bride Magazine, was a fabulous opportunity to broaden the visibility of the women and black-owned businesses invited. It was a powerful reflection of Black history and entrepreneurship. As the shoppers came through, we could share our businesses in such an intimate, memorable way which, in many instances, led to a successful connection. Thank you, World Bride Magazine, for the opportunity and the Manhattan Manor for hosting the Gifting Suite. Oh My Heavenly Hair Inc.(OMhh) is a fabulous, vegan hair wellness brand.
