At Black Enterprise, we celebrate Black businesses every day of the year. But as we pause to celebrate Juneteenth—and as much of the nation joins us for the first time—we feel there’s no better time to recommit ourselves to the fight for economic equality; to show support for our communities’ hard-working entrepreneurs; and to highlight the some of the amazing products being created by Black artisans, inventors, designers, chefs, and more.
Every year we put together a list of our favorite gifts from black-owned brands. There are plenty of ideas to help you (virtually) celebrate the grads, dads, and newlyweds. But there are also everyday items for your closet, your pantry, and your playroom. You can browse the 100 businesses on our most recent list broken down by:
But even our Ultimate Gift Guide is just a drop in the bucket. There are many more products and services available for when you’re being intentional about where, and with whom, you spend your money. Find our complete coverage of all things Black-owned here.
