The pandemic’s serious economic impact has been brutal for a lot of businesses — Black and minority-owned businesses included. Many of these companies have been brought to the forefront this year, thanks to the Black Lives Matter movement. There’s no better time than now to celebrate the goods they have to offer and share our favorite products with loved ones. In these last few weeks of the year, we can shop with intention, help many of these small businesses regain some stability, and gift ourselves and loved ones some great products while we’re at it.
Don’t know where to start? Not to worry, we’ve done the work to help make your shopping experience easy. Whether it’s artisanal handmade shea butter from Nigeria or carefully crafted gold bracelets made in Brooklyn, we’ve got a gift for every person on your list. Yes, this includes your ride-or-die best friends, your hip mom who is now on Tik Tok doing every dance challenge imaginable, and even your sibling who secretly idolizes you but will never admit it — there’s a present to fit the cast of characters in your circle in this gift guide.
