Christmas is just around the corner and if you’re super last minute like me, then you haven’t gotten your gifts yet. No worries since you’re in the right place and if you love my suggestions, you get to support some amazing black-owned brands while bringing joy to the hearts of your loved ones.
If you rather watch me chat about these Black Owned brands, take a peek at this video below.
Its only right that I kick off the list with Befitting Style. When I say Befitting Style, I’m not referring to the blog. I’m referring to Befitting Style accessories which is an extension of this blog. Giving the gift of handmade earrings is extra special because handmade items always feel personal. The best part about it is that there is an epic Christmas Sale going on right now. When you buy 2 earrings from the Holiday Collection, you get 1 item free from the site using the code GIFTME at checkout. Now you can keep a gift for yourself.
I just became familiar with Brandon Blackwood’s luxurious leather bags a few months ago and I’m absolutely in love. His ESR (End Systemic Racism) bags are all the rave. His brand is so successful that you’ll have to get on a waitlist to get your hands on his most popular bags. Now you may be wondering why I would add such an accessory brand to a last-minute gift guide. No worries becauase there are plenty of his bags that you can easily shop right now. Accessories tend to last longer than clothes in our closets so there’s nothing like giving a gift that has such longevity.
Speaking of accessories, Twelve AM is a shoe lover’s dream! From mules to thigh high boots, sandals and more, you will get your entire fix at Twelve AM. The best part is its affordable. This Los Angeles based brand offers shoes in a variety of prices. Gift on a budget by getting a $40 pair of heels that looks like its worth over $100. Your cousin will never know.
I believe that no one understands black skin like black people so why not try a black owned skincare brand? Based in the UK, this skincare brand strongly focuses on health and wellness. Although I haven’t tried any of the products yet, I love the trajectory of this natural/vegan skincare brand.

WRAPPED BY SARAH
The best part about small businesses is how hands-on the owners truly are. Sarah hand picks the wraps for Wrapped By Sarah. Don’t know how to tie headwraps, this Congolese brand based in the UK consistently shares head wrap tutorials on Instagram.
I fell in love with this brand because of their packaging. If you’re not new here, then you know just how much I love shea butter. I’ve been using shea butter on my body exclusively for about 10 years. If you’re reluctant to gift shea butter to your loved ones, remember that you’re giving the gift of moisturization all in great packaging.
Created by Tilly Stewart, Alwayz Pretti Haircare aims to improve your hair’s health which should improve your growth so give the gift of healthy hair growth to your loved ones.
BODIED BY SCORP
For half the price what Amazon offers, Bodied by Scorp provides resistance bands at the low cost of 3 for $17.99. She also sells other fitness accessories so you can gift your loved ones the gift of fitness because health is wealth and I’m sure at least one person has told you their New Year’s Resolution is to get fit. Now you can help.
2020 has been quite an interesting year and we all need a vacation every now and then so gift a bikini (or 2) to that jet setting cousin that low-key thinks they’re nomadic.
Which of these black owned brands will you shop from for your last minute Christmas gifts?
