The Ultimate Black Owned Holiday Gift Guide

The most wonderful time of the year is here, and after what 2020 has been, we definitely need some holiday cheer to lift our spirits! I’m determined to end the year on a positive note, and I’m grateful for the blessings that I’ve had despite the challenges that the past couple of months have thrown at us.

Although my holiday energy is usually “I am the gift,” 😂 I haven’t seen many of my family and friends this year, so I’m planning on reminding them how important they are to me with thoughtful gifts. It seemed only fitting to continue my #BuyBlack energy into my holiday gift shopping, and I’ve been able to find tons of gift ideas from Black owned businesses! From fragrant candles, unique jewelry, and trendy clothes, to inspirational books, fun toys, and fancy kitchenware, our Black owned holiday gift guide has tons of gift ideas at every price point ($5-$250)!

Check out the list below, support Black businesses and get shopping!

For those of you in the same struggle, here are some men’s gifts:

Babies & Children’s Gifts

Even though they’re sometimes too young to truly appreciate their gifts, it’s always so nice to get cute little items for the babies and children in our lives. Although there are so so many Black owned baby brands, I’ve selected some clothing items, inspirational books, toys and more between that you can get for your mini humans, or as baby shower gifts. And even if they end up playing more with the packaging than the gift itself, it’s the thought that counts!
