Record breaking journalist Nellie Bly was always up for an adventure. Famous for helping develop undercover journalism, Nellie went as far as to get herself admitted into an asylum. But her biggest adventure was inspired by Jules Verne’s Around the World in Eighty Days. Travelling by boat, train, carriage, rickshaw and donkey she beat the record, arriving back in New York after 72 days, 6 hours, 11 minutes, and 14 seconds.
Why we name our boxes
When we started Karibu, we knew we wanted our gifts to be about more than just great products. So we thought long and hard about all the best gifts we had ever received and what connected them all. Very quickly we realised that behind every great gift is a good story, a meaning. And so, we decided that each box should have a name that captured the spirit of the box. The result, we hope, is gifts that are as thoughtful as their givers.
