Support These Black-Owned Businesses This Holiday Season


It's that time of the year.

The time of year when the air gets nippy, you add a few more layers to your outfit, and the echoes of holiday music ring through department stores as you search for the perfect gift. You have a taste for hot chocolate and a yearning to watch classic holiday movies. Yep, it's Christmas time--my favorite time of the year.

Something about the flashing holiday lights, the smell of cinnamon, and the plush fabric of a sweater against my skin is an unmatched feeling for me. And now that the holiday season has come, many of you are probably going Christmas shopping (albeit online and with a budget due to Covid-19).

2020 has been a year of chaos and unrest to say the least, but with the holiday season near, why not give your friends, family, and/or colleagues that perfect gift from a Black-owned business to give them a light at the end of the tunnel that is 2020? Whether you want to get that special someone something warm for the wintry months or your favorite co-worker their favorite coffee, I got you covered with my favorite Black-owned businesses you can support this holiday season.
