Valentine’s Day is one of those commercial holidays that has the potential of leaving your relationship in shambles if you don’t get the perfect gift. Fortunately for us, February represents more than just Love Day. Black History Month is such a great time to gift the person you love with items made by Black-owned businesses. Obviously, the goal is to always pour into our community by financially supporting their endeavors, but the statement of supporting your people on a commercial holiday sends a dual message of love.

Shopping black for Valentine’s Day also allows you the opportunity to do something different. Think outside of the box with a gift that is more than just chocolate and a teddy bear. An original present will definitely get you the appreciation you deserve.
If you’re on the market for a few gift ideas and want to pour money back into your community, here are 10 Black-owned businesses to shop for Valentine’s Day.
