These Black-Owned Etsy Shops Have Exactly What You’re Looking For In A Gift

·5 min read

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 year. Now that the shopping portion of 2021 has begun, it's time to scratch off the names on your Love Day 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 Black Etsy makers that are setting out to make gifts personal again.

At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. All product details reflect the price and availability at the time of publication. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.
