With just a few more weeks left till we are filling our bellies and watching The Grinch I wanted to bring back another UK Black Owned Christmas Gift Guide as last years was so well received. This time focusing on gifts that come prepared and packed ready for you to wrap and put under your tree.
Why Shop Black-Owned This Christmas?
We know just how important and impactful the community can be from witnessing the changes over the past few years within the mainstream media. The majority of black-owned businesses recognised the areas where representation was minimal and where needs were not being met. This encoouraged these individuals to create their own businesses to be the change they want to see.
During this festive season, community support is fundamental, this is a great time for people both within and outside of the black community to see what services and products are available. Even if we do not make a purchase, this post was created to encourage financial support as well as furrher exposure. You may discover a new business, find something you have been looking for or you may just want to treat yourself or a loved one to a gift that was made with you as the focus point and not as an afterthought.
