Whew, what a year! As we round the final month of 2020, everyone deserves a deep, cleansing breath. While we aren’t quite certain what 2021 holds, I am choosing to celebrate the now. One way I’m spreading my gratitude this holiday season is to gift my loved ones with a little token of my affection during this continued period of social distancing.
These gift picks in particular are perfect for the beauty lovers in your life. Even better, these options are all created by Black artisans or sold by Black businesses. By purchasing these items, you’ll not only give a top-notch gift, but support marginalized entrepreneurs and creators. Make your dollar matter this season, and gift one of these picks.
