Gift Guide: 3 UK Black-Owned Businesses To Support This Christmas
Happy December, It-Girls! Today I thought I'd do a fun post to get us all into the festive spirit because Lord knows we all could use a little cheering up right now (at least I do!) This is by no means an extensive list but I'm going for quality over quantity and giving you 3 brands that I'm currently stalking for potential gifts at the moment. These are amazing, high quality brands that are all black-owned, with products that would make great gifts for friends and family! From holistic beauty and wellness to home decor and fashion, I've got you covered with my gift guide on UK black-owned businesses you can support this Christmas!
So, if you've been here a while you might have seen me mention this brand a few times. Having worked with them personally (check out my social media consultancy here), I can vouch for Imara Therapy one hundred percent. They are blowing up right now and for good reason! Their organic skincare range feels and smells like pure luxury with handmade infused oils and body scrubs made with the finest vegan-friendly ingredients. With fragrances ranging from Damask Rose to Spiced Pumpkin these products are perfect for the holiday season.
I came across Atlas + Ophir on Instagram and was immediately obsessed. The aesthetic of this candle brand is incredibly high-end, with gorgeous marble designs that would look amazing in any home. Created by twin sisters Amara and Onya, these candles are hand-poured in London with coconut wax and wood wicks making them super eco-friendly (which we stan), plus their marble vessels are reusable! Definitely worth the investment - I might have to get a few for myself!
We all know Birkins have been the talk of the town but Bottega Veneta bags are what really caught my eye this year. Unfortunately they didn't make the same impression on my bank account but a girl can dream. So you can imagine my delight when I came across Little Touch. This fabulous accessories brand specialise in gorgeous designer dupes that work as amazing trend pieces, perfect for any outfit. Beloved by bloggers, their Alexa bag is sure to be a hit with all your fashion-savvy friends!
