Black owned brands to buy from this Christmas
While there are Black owned brands included throughout all the gift guides I have planned, I also wanted to make a separate one to highlight even more Black owned brands this year. I’ve discovered some amazing new independent brands and Black owned brands this year and really wanted to just share these with some inspiration for Christmas gift buying!
