Tis the season for cute stocking stuffers. Holiday gifting looks a little different this year as we experience our very first socially-distant Christmas. We’ve had a traumatic year due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The call to support black-owned businesses has been on everyone’s agenda in efforts to keep them afloat during these unpredictable times. Although there has always been a strong need to keep the black dollar circulating within our community, people have been more intentional about how they’re spending their money.
With Christmas being a blink away, it’s time to fill those stocking stuffers with cute gifts that don’t include socks or Starbucks gift cards. If you’re on the hunt for fun holiday trinkets to include in a stocking stuffer, then we’ve got you covered. These 5 Black-owned businesses have amazing, thoughtful gifts for your loved ones.
