Valentine’s Gifts From Black-Owned Businesses

With Valentine's Day right around the corner, now’s the time to start thinking of the perfect present for your friends, fam, significant others…and treating yourself is never a bad idea, either. This month, we’re highlighting a few of our favorite Black-owned companies with gifts everyone on your list will love. Shopping at Black-owned businesses is one of the many ways we can support the Black community, not just during the month of February but all year long. Read on for our favorite brands in honor of Black History Month + Valentine’s Day.

For The Wellness Guru: Golde

Tiffany Mouzon Wofford founded Golde in 2017 with the goal of making wellness accessible to everyone. Golde’s products range from superfood blends to powdered face masks. Best of all, they’re 100% natural, vegan, and made with ingredients you can trust. (Our personal favorites are the Pure Matcha and Cacao Turmeric Latte Blend).


For the Interior Design Enthusiast: Estelle Colored Glass

Estelle Colored Glass features luxury hand-blown glass homeware in a mix of jewel tones and soft pastels. Founder Stephanie Summerson Hall was inspired by her grandmother’s love of antiquing—she hopes her heirloom quality pieces help evoke and create special memories for you, like her memories spent with her grandmother. 


For The Mug Collector: Lolly Lolly Ceramics

Lalese Stamps launched Lolly Lolly Ceramics in 2017 as a side hustle while she was working full time as a graphic designer. Lolly Lolly Ceramics focuses on objects that are functional, unique and handmade to last. In September of 2019, Lalese started a 100 Day Project where she made 100 mugs with 100 different handles for 100 days. Today, they're busy innovating and growing as a small scale ceramics design + production studio.


For The Haircare Queen: Bread Beauty Supply

Inspired by her life growing up around her Mum’s braiding salon in Perth, Australia, founder, Maeva, felt there was a need for a brand that would look and think differently for all of it: the curls, fuzz, frizzy bits, bangs, braids, bantu, other bits.

Maeva felt like she wasn't really acknowledged in mainstream hair conversations, and struggled to find clean hair products that were uncomplicated, practical, and fun. Enter: BREAD. Think, products that are easy to use, suitable for all hair types, and buildable for your preferred routine. Formulated for reliability and consistency, BREAD takes out the guess work - so you can spend time doing everything but your hair.


For The Makeup Maven: Pat McGrath Labs

Some may say there's nobody as iconic as Pat McGrath in the space of makeup. She is the world’s most influential and in-demand makeup artist. For over 25 years, her creative vision has made her a tour de force whose legendary and creative power has transformed both beauty and fashion on a global scale. A true pioneer, McGrath formulated and perfected her must-have collection of high-performance cosmetics, and launched her eponymous brand, PAT MCGRATH LABS in 2015. A true must-have in everyone's makeup collection.


For The Thoughtful Foodie: Partake

CWhen founder and CEO Denise Woodard’s daughter was diagnosed with multiple food allergies, she created Partake Foods to offer a selection of gluten-free, vegan, non-GMO foods that are allergy-friendly…not to mention super delicious. Their cookies make the perfect sweet Valentine’s treat (for those with or without food restrictions). P.S. Partake has a limited edition Valentine's Day Chocolate Chip Mini Cookies Snack Pack that looks yummy!


For The Fashion Obsessive: Wales Bonner

Wales Bonner epitomizes contemporary menswear cool (that we also love for the girls). Drawing on designer Grace Wales Bonner’s Afro-Atlantic heritage, paired with a classic English touch, Wales Bonner makes U.K. staples like the tracksuit feel fresh and elevated. And since you know we love athleisure…her most recent collaboration with Adidas tops our Valentine’s wish list.
