Finding the perfect gift for everyone in your life can feel like a challenge. This is especially true if you want to give a present that perfectly suits their interests and tastes. Consider gifting something handcrafted or custom made that also supports Black-owned businesses. From chic throw pillows to a cozy robe, there's something on this list for everyone.
Here, the best gifts from Black-owned businesses.
Soaking in a bathtub after a long day is at the top of the list for many hardworking adults. And this 100 percent bamboo tray has all the necessary features to create a relaxing vibe. There's a wine glass holder and consoles for a book, phone, or candle.
Have someone in your life who loves yoga but also has killer style? Then this bold, colorful yoga mat is the perfect gift. The Sugarmat collaboration with Bouffants and Broken Hearts artist, Kendra Dandy, features an absorbent suede top, a rubber base, and a tropical theme with a lipstick-wearing cheetah.
Throw pillows are one of the quickest ways to update any space. So for your recent grad who's moved into their first apartment or a new homeowner, this pillow is a chic addition. It's handmade in Tunisia and the stitching has a simple, yet sophisticated style to fit with any decor.
Coloring books, whether they're for kids or adults, can be a relaxing activity and one that doesn't cost a ton. The "I Love Me" book has more than 20 pages of illustrations and positive affirmations. This particular book is designed for boys of color, but the author has other affirming books as well.
It'll be easy to get comfortable and cozy with this robe. The high, shawl collar is sure to provide warmth, as well as the microfiber fleece material. With a length that hits below the knees, and even at the ankles for some, this is one plush robe. It's available in ivory or charcoal gray.
Tote bags serve so many functions (groceries, travel, work, etc.), but one that features a message is even better. The "joy is an act of resistance" handmade tote by Rayo & Honey measures 23 inches long, so it can easily hold essentials and more. The zipper pockets help keep smaller items from getting lost in the shuffle.
Not everyone has space or time for a full garden, but this mini kit is enough to start planting. The kit includes an eco-friendly glass mason jar to grow the greens (arugula, basil, sage, and more), as well as hydroponics which require less water.
Everyone has that friend who's always on the go with their laptop, so this cover from Chic Geeks is a useful gift to help them protect their expensive electronics. The faux crocodile cover easily snaps on and off, all while allowing access to all ports. It fits a range of models and comes in a ton of colors.
Help your friend or family member create a zen vibe in their home with the Blooming Energy Box. The set, which can be a one-time order or subscription, has a succulent that already comes potted, natural lip balm, sage, palo santo, and a 2 or 4-ounce room spray.
Nothing says luxury like giving the gift of a scented candle. The Black Home's Aphrodite candle is the perfect gift for your candle-loving friend, and its attractive design makes it a beautiful addition to their coffee table or shelf. Notes of lilac, sandalwood, and ylang-ylang are sure to add that extra luxe touch to your pal's home.
