UK Black Owned Christmas Gift Guide

I have spent the last couple of years making a conscious effort to support the black community through supporting black owned businesses.

With just under a month till Christmas I thought it would be a great idea to put together a black owned Christmas gift guide. I wanted to keep it short and sweet so I have highlighted 27 gift ideas from black owned businesses.

Gifting Essentials

Highlighting some of the gifting essentials you’ll need to wrap up your gifts, as well as some creative cards and wrapping paper by some amazing women.

Hair Care

Some black owned hair care businesses for any naturals, culrlies and hair enthusiasts. I have mainly focused on hair care that is packed with natural ingredients.

Home & Lifestyle

As I love home wear I could not leave it out of this list.

Bespoke Binny pretty much have everything you could want, african printed hot water bottle cover? Bespoke Binny have it! Want an African print lap shade or some cushions? Onua Home have it! Recently discovered LAGOM and their candles are so authentically pleasing and they are Soy *hallelujah*

Skincare

Looking to glow all year round? Yeah me too. Which is why I had to include some businesses that can contribute to the glow.

Love Rems make some beautiful bath salts and I love the packaging. Afro Hair & Skin Co has been working hard to expand their already amazing range of skin care and hair care products. I have been eyeing up Narloa lemon and aloe face wash for so long, I think it’s time to give myself a little Christmas gift.

Children

I thought I would suggest some alternative gifts for children, instead of toys.

Cherish Me is a family run business that do the sweetest affirmation cards. Some books that were created with us in mind, great representation. Tiny Blings is the spot for some personalised gifts, they also do some african print hair clips for mini curlies.

More Gift Ideas

I had to include some of the business I already use and one I have my eye on.

Gift yourself or someone else a Jamii card so that you can continue to support black owned businesses with a discount. Sassy Apparel live up to their name with their unique apperal. Ayok’a has the best phone cases, great stocking fillers.

I would love for you to add to this list, so share and comment a black owned business you’ll be supporting during the festive season. I hope this list is helpful for those looking to support some amazing black owned businesses, and for those who are looking for a list of interesting and creative gifts for their loved ones.

  1. This is really good. I love finding new black businesses.

    Two of my favourite black businesses are Nubian Rick Chick (stationery, prints, planner accessories) and Dorcas Creates (also prints).
