Over the past few years, I've made it a point to get at least 75% of my gifts from small businesses run by either black entrepreneurs or women of color. While supporting my community is very important to me, I've found that gifts from black-owned or woman-of-color-owned business get used and have been cherished so much more than other gifts I've gotten in the past in comparison.
I've been able to find some of the cutest holiday gifts for my family and close, close friends - from perfect cloth chokers, to ornate travel bags, or even glowy highlight - that still get regular use and wear after months and years. I wanted to bring this wonderful tradition to Ritual+Vibe.
Welcome to our first annual Holiday Gift Guide - is a list of some of my favorite items from beautiful, melanin-rich woman-owned brands that will delight the beautiful black mystic in your life this Holiday season. There are three female, Omo Changos in this list. Can you spot them all?
