Wholesale African American Gifts
There are many options for wholesale gifts marketed to the African-American demographic. (Traditional doll from Swaziland image by Elzbieta Sekowska from Fotolia.com)

While gifts should not always be based on a person's ethnicity, there are gifts that are targeted specifically to African-American culture. "African American" is a term used to describe black Americans who are of African descent, according to Dictionary.com. If you work for an organisation or charity that specifically targets the African-American population, you may want to purchase a wholesale gift that promotes the unique attributes of that heritage and culture.

African-American Dolls

Buy a wholesale lot of American-American baby dolls, which you can give to African-American children. In a toy market flooded with mostly Caucasian baby dolls, it is important for African-American children to have a baby doll that resembles the child. Check with online vendors and at stores that carry food, home goods and toys, such as the Museum of the African Diaspora in San Francisco.

Greeting Cards

Greeting cards that speak specifically to African and African-American culture make excellent and meaningful gifts when you cannot afford a larger or more expensive gift. The greeting cards should feature African Americans on the front. You can purchase these cards at wholesale prices when you buy them in bulk from websites such as Carole Joy Creations or Plywood People. View cards online from greeting card vendors to get an idea of the kinds of messages that are inside.

African Art

Purchase African art and other handicrafts at a wholesale price directly from African artists. You can bargain for these items if you are in the country where the artist lives, or you can broker a deal through an online vendor that conducts fair trade, such as Ten Thousand Villages. It is best to try to purchase the art directly from the artist to ensure he or she benefits the most from the sale. Check into the possibilities by contacting organisations and missionaries who work with artists through micro-financing projects.
