This unique set is a rich and dramatic way of displaying the Original Gifts of Christmas.
Each of the unique wooden boxes are hand made and adorned with brass appliqué of filigree, stars and angles to capture the spirit of gifts brought by the Three Kings more than 2000 years ago.
The eight sided box is satin lined with a brass latch and chain. It measures 3 3/4" x 3" high and the lid is adorned with brass stars. The box holds real 23k gold floating inside a glass globe.
The round box measures 3 3/4" x 2 3/8" high and holds the very highest grade of pure frankincense from the same region as the gift brought by Balthazar. The satin lined frankincense box is adorned with brass angles.
The square box holding myrrh measures 3 1/4" x 3" high and has a brass latch and chain along with the finest Arabian myrrh similar to the gift brought by Caspar.
The set includes a gold embossed display card that tells a brief story of the Original Gifts of Christmas and a Certificate of Authenticity that states that the gold is real 23k and the frankincense and myrrh are pure and from the same regions as the gifts brought on the first Christmas.
Together, the Three Box Set is a beautiful way to begin a new Christmas Tradition. Display your Gold, Frankincense & Myrrh along with your Nativity Set and bring a new meaning to our tradition of giving gifts at Christmastime.

|Review:||I love this set. I was able to share it with my preschool children. It made the Christmas story very real to them because they were able to see the 3 "strange" gifts that Jesus received. The boxes are beautiful. I love this treasure! Pros: Durable, Good Value, High Quality|

|Review:||As a teacher for first graders on a weekly basis, the children were excited when able to see and touch samples of the very items that the Three Wise Men brought to the Baby Jesus 2,000 years ago in Bethlehem. Although this purchase is just a small sample of the three gifts, with minature cases, it served its purpose and made the bible story more real for these little ones. Best Uses: Authentic biblical items, Hands on, Impressive for the young; Pros: Durable, Good Value, High Quality|

|Review:||Our family receives gifts from the Magi every year at Epiphany, usually gold-wrapped chocolate coins, a candle, and simmering potpouri. This year, I discovered this gift set. HOW BEAUTIFUL! Even the cardboard box it came in is pretty. Also included is a detailed description of each "gift" and its signifigance. Very interesting. The ONLY con is that if you empty the frankincense and myrrh into the satin lined boxes, I'm afraid it may ruin the lining. I wish I'd have found this when my children were younger. Still, this is definitely an heirloom. Best Uses: Family gift for Epiphany, Heirloom quality; Cons: Must keep items in bags; Pros: Beautiful keepsake, Perfect for Epiphany, Written details included|

|Review:||I got this set for my 3 girls. One for each. They really liked the boxes. The 2 younger ones really liked the incense and the oldest thought that the gold was cool. It also gave me a good chance to teach them about the Christmas story. Cons: none; Pros: Good price, Neat boxes, Nice incense|

|Review:||I loved these. One of the clasps on one of my boxes was slightly flawed, and they could be a little cheaper, but I loved these, so I splurged. They looked great next to my Nativity, and I know they'll last for years to come; I don't use the clasp anyway, so it didn't matter too much to me. Cons: Expensive; Pros: Durable, Good Value|

|Review:||Have been looking for several years. The gifts of the wise men are more meaningful when the students can touch, see and smell the fragrances. The wooden boxes secure the gifts and can be used for years to come. Well worth the investment. Pros: Perfect for classroom|
