Supporting Black-owned businesses shouldn't be a well-meaning thought that begins and ends with a black square and a clever caption posted via Instagram. It should be sustained year-round, and we're hoping to make that fun and easy this holiday season. Now that the shopping portion of the festivities has begun, it's time to scratch off the plethora of names on your list with a unique gift from a Black-owned Etsy shop.
Don't worry: we did the heavy gifting for you. Ahead, put your money where your mouth is and indulge in a roundup of totally presentable (we're on a roll!) items ranging from soy candle sets to delicious cookies and inspirational wall art — all from a curated variety of Etsy makers that are setting out to make gifts personal again.
