The Ultimate Online Black-Owned Business Gift Guide (U.S. Online Shops)

List of Black-Owned Businesses
NOTE: Check out the 2016 ULTIMATE Black Business Guide For Everyone on Your Shopping List AND the 2016 Black Business Catalog for an updated list of over 500 gift ideas!

With the holidays right around the corner, I have already started saving up for holiday shopping and I know that you are on the same page. This year, I am making it my goal to shop only Black-owned businesses for everyone on my gift list. Now some of you may be thinking, "shopping only Black-owned? Isn't that racist?" If that's what you are thinking, then you might want to reconsider your definition of racism. Most of the Black-owned businesses on my list are small businesses and/or family-owned businesses which means that the money I spend is more likely to circulate through our community, as oppose to shopping a larger, internationally-connected brand. Shopping small business means a better economy for us all.

Okay, now to the good stuff. Have you ever gone to a website of a business that you wanted to support and been turned off immediately by their outdated website, dark and shadowy product pictures and lack of social media presence? Me too and it sucks (if this is your business, I can suggest some amazing business coaches! Just keep reading below). Well for this holiday season, I have taken out a lot of the dirty work for you by creating The Ultimate Black-Owned Online Business Holiday Gift Guide (USA).

Of course one could never scout out every amazing Black-owned online business out there, but I definitely did try by bringing you over 200 Black-owned businesses that I feel that you can trust. 
One thing that I kept in mind while making this list is that there is no "one size fits all" to gift buying. Therefore, I have broken down each business into categories based on the different and wonderful people in your life. Enjoy!
