With less than two weeks away from Christmas, one question remains: have you tackled your holiday gift list yet? If you’re still on the hunt for the perfect gift, take a peek at these black-owned businesses that should be on everyone’s holiday wish list. From bright CBD-infused soaks to lip-hydrating stocking fillers with a kick, there’s something unique for everyone.
This popular beauty brand is cruelty-free and we love the packaging, too. It packs a punch when it comes to hydrating products, specifically the Kiss My Lips masks, which have earned KNC Beauty cult status. Grab a few of these items for the beauty lover in your life to make the perfect gift, like the Collagen Infused Lip Mask, or the Supa Balm for healing chapped lips, and don't forget the All-Natural Retinol Infused Eye Mask.

Aminah Abdul Jillil
There’s something about Aminah Abdul Jillil’s designs that make us want to strut around in heels or (a sandal with a satin bow) even if we’re going nowhere else than our living rooms. The shoe designer’s heels are nothing short of art, with everything from rhinestone-embellished cutouts on stiletto booties to Tuxedo sandals that come complete with rhinestone bows on the toe. Run, don’t walk to this brand for any shoe lover in your life.

FootNanny Starter Kit
FootNanny has all the goods when it comes to getting tired feet in top shape. While the brand has soaking salts, foot creams, and more in its foot care repertoire, we love FootNanny’s Starter Kit. With the Eucalyptus cream, Rescue Buffer (to buff away rough skin) and a pair of cotton ankle socks in the kit, it’s like treating yourself to a 10-minute home pedicure. The kit lasts for about 30 uses, so you can get 30 pedicures in one box.
