Today is Small Business Saturday! If you’re looking to support Black-owned businesses this holiday season, I wanted to highlight some of my favorites in a blog post. Several of these brands are offering a discount during Cyber Week, so don’t wait to shop if you love a sale!
I’ve mentioned BYCHARI a couple of times on my InstaStories and in my newsletter, but definitely wanted to highlight them on the blog too! Think of BYCHARI as your go-to for delicate and luxe gold + diamond pieces. Last month I ordered two of these mini diamond studs and have been wearing them in my second holes! This week I also snagged two of these mini diamond huggies as well – such pretty everyday pieces. The next item on my list is this insanely beautiful graduated diamond bracelet. So stunning! Enjoy 20% off your order this weekend when you enter code THANKFUL at checkout! Below are some of my favorites from the site to give you some inspo – all of these would make amazing holiday gifts this season!
OMA THE LABEL
If you prefer a chunky statement pieces as opposed to delicate jewelry, don’t miss OMA! They’re also offering 20% off your purchase this weekend when you enter promo code OMABFSALE at checkout! I ordered this ring, this ear cuff (the stones option), this knotted bracelet and a few other items. Undecided what I’ll give as holiday gifts and what I’ll keep for myself – it’s all so pretty, and the price points are great!
Wearing a face mask is the new normal, so why not jazz up your look and keep your skin looking great with these washable silk face masks from silked! Also loving the 14K gold face mask chains for keeping your mask handy while out and about. They’re offering 30% off your order with code BFCM30 at checkout!
MCBRIDE SISTERS COLLECTION WINES
I was introduced to the McBride Sisters by my friend Kate of Be There In Five. McBride Sisters is now the largest Black-owned wine company in the US, and is also one of the most inclusive, accessible, socially aware and sustainable. Whether you’re in need of a hostess/housewarming/holiday gift or just want to shake things up and try some new wines in your own home this season, check out some of these varietals from McBride Sisters! They have a holiday gifts page where they’ve got trios, pairings and more to make gift giving effortless. I’m planning to order some of the Black Girl Magic for myself!

I dig a solid, minimalist design/branding, and you I LOVE a candle! So it’s no surprise la botica is on my list! From chic and fragrant candles to cozy loungewear, this brand can be your gift go-to for the homebodies in your life. Several items on their site are now sold out, but below are some faves that are still in stock!
KIM CHRISTOPHER ART
Earlier this year I worked with Kim to create a gorgeous painting for my home! It was such a treat to work with her – she’s so talented, kind and really understood the look I was going for. Her piece is currently hanging in my office (see it here)! She’s actually in the process of making me one of her black + white LOVE pieces for my living room bookshelves. Can’t wait to see it! While she mostly does commissioned pieces, there are a few works available for purchase now on her website (see text links below the collage)! Below are my favorites of those available!
