Though many people know the biblical story of the legendary gifts of the Magi, told in the Gospel according to Matthew, few have experienced the extraordinary scent of frankincense and myrrh. These fragrant resins, used by ancient Greeks and Romans for medicinal and religious purposes, can be enjoyed on your evening fire or as incense. Our set of three mango-wood chests also contains the third gift of the Magi: gold. Here, delicate flakes of 23-karat gold are presented in a handblown glass ball. Comes with a certificate of authenticity.


Frankincense is from Boswellia sacra trees in the Dofar region of Oman. Myrrh is from Commiphora trees found throughout the Arabian Peninsula. The chests are made in India. Each chest is approximately 3 1/2"W x 3"H.

Comments about Historic Gifts of the Magi Set:

I have three grown children. Last year, I bought the Gifts of the Magi, and gave one gift to each of them for Christmas. I also went a little overboard on other gifts for them. But it was the Gifts of the Magi that they were most moved by. It was unique, special, meaningful. They went on and on about it. I commented that I should have just given them the Magi gift. They agreed. My son said, 'if it was good enough for Jesus, then it is surely good enough for us'. This set is well made, detailed, and something that they will pass on to the next generation. My friend liked it so much that she bought a set for their family's 'live nativity' tradition, and I bought two more sets, for the next two years, so that each of my children end up with a complete set. Best gift I have bought in a very long time!

        Comments about Historic Gifts of the Magi Set:

        The wisemen's boxes containing litttle bits of their gifts is a neat idea for showing what gold, frankencense & myrrh are, but the boxes are of rather shoddy construction, not exactly what the catalogue pictures look like

          Comments about Historic Gifts of the Magi Set:

          I bought this set of three gifts of the Magi for my three children. Each child got one gift. They were absolutely awestruck. They each felt like this gift was really all they should have gotten for Christmas. It was powerful, overwhelming, meaningful. My middle daughter, who received the frankincense, burned some. It made the house smell like church. I was so impressed that I showed my friend, and she bought a set for her family's live nativity. I also ordered two more sets, so that each of my three children can eventually have a complete set. Very powerful.

                      I kept the "Gift of Kings" for myself. However, it is also a lovely gift to give and it tells a beautiful story. I told the story to my Grandaughter about the three wise men taking the gifts to Jesus and showed her each gift as I was telling the story. Please, Please, Please bring this gift back for the next XMAS season.

                                  This is exactly how it looks online or in the catalog, no disappointments at all. The purchase and delivery were just great as always with National Geographic store.
