When I recently polled my followers on Instagram, there were two types of holiday gift guides y’all were itching to see: an eco-friendly gift guide (which I published last week!) and a Black-owned business holiday gift guide. As I sat here this week trying to figure out where to even begin with researching products for the Black-owned gift guide, I realized that since this isn’t my #1 area of expertise, I needed to pass the mic to someone who is already advocating for Black-owned businesses.
(And quick side note before we jump in: If you are wondering why buying Black-owned matters, check out this post, which sums it up pretty well!)
Without further ado, let me introduce you to all of the helpful gift guides available over at Buy Black Main Street:
Buy Black Main Street has lots of other helpful guides on their website. Be sure to check out their Instagram account as well–I saw that they are planning to post Black-owned Black Friday deals next week!
And finally, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the local Black-owned businesses that I follow/support, many of which are owned by personal friends. Some of these are product-based and some are service-based, both of which make fabulous gifts!
Do you have a favorite Black-owned business not listed in these guides? Leave a comment on this post so we can support them!
