Although there was a big push nearly a year ago to support black-owned brands, it’s important to continue to keep that energy on high. While there is much more work to be done, so much progress has been made since then - and more independent black-owned brands are popping up in major retailers like Sephora, Net-a-Porter, Saks Fifth Avenue, Amazon, and Nordstrom as a result.

On our list of faves for Mother's Day gifts: The Liha Goddess Set, Stella Jean's multicolored skirt, Grace Eleyae's silk pillowcases, and more

And for good reason. The products we’ve seen and tried out are incredible - from luxe CBD soaks to dreamy dresses, luxury heels, cooking tools, and more. And there are so many good options for moms-to-be and moms of any age. 

Take a peek at some of our favorite beauty and fashion gifts for moms from black-owned businesses we love. 

Liha Ase’ Goddess Set

Liha is known for its luxe, aromatic oils and this set was inspired by the Yoruba tradition of crafting oils and lotions from natural flora. It includes three rollerballs named after three earth goddesses in West African culture - Yemoja, Oya, and Oshun. Frankincense-infused Yemoja is designed to calm the senses, Oya is a pick-me-up with grapefruit and rosemary notes, and Oshun is calming, with its notes of orange and jasmine.

Epifene Jewelry

Epifene's jewelry is perfect for stylish moms who like to make a statement. We love the gold lion-topped Lejonhjarta earrings and Signe Necklace in the brand's collection, which would make for a fashionable and affordable combo gift.

Oprah Winfrey swears by this hair-protecting brand that helps you protect your hair with chic accessories. One of our favorites for moms for spring and summer is the brand’s luxe silk pillowcases. They're dermatologist-approved and hypoallergenic, and help prevent sleep lines by eliminating pulling and tugging on your skin. The pillowcases also help reduce the occurrence of bedhead. 

We also love Grace Eleyae's white Venice Satin-Lined Straw Hat. It’s lined with high-quality charmeuse satin, and it’s light and breathable for warmer days ahead. Don’t miss the brand’s satin eye masks, silk turbans, and headbands too, for more cute combo gift ideas.

Stella Jean's colorful SS21 collection

There are so many Stella Jean pieces we’re obsessed with, but the brand’s Popeline Skirt with Habiba Print is one of our faves for Mother’s Day gifts. Its banded waist and full skirt flatters the figure and works well for staycations, vacations, or even brunch. Don’t miss this colorful piece - or the other whimsical vacation and staycation pieces in the SS21 collection - that make for unique gifts for the mom who loves a getaway.

COOLGiRL the brand's soothing candles

COOLGiRL thebrand just launched earlier this year, and their 100 percent soy candles have quickly developed a following - and for good reason. Their yummy scents range from Cocoa Butter Kisses to Apple Pie and Allure, and their wicks are made with natural cotton wicks. Cocoa Butter Kisses is one of the brand’s top scents, and its infused with cocoa butter, vanilla tonka, and cashmere notes.

Oprah is also a fan of these luxe body butters, and one touch of it on your skin will show you why. The Beauty Butters are infused with two types of Shea Butter and nourishing plant botanicals for extra hydration. They smell really good too, with scents like Egyptian Lavender and Moroccan Mint, Moroccon Blue Tansy, and Egyptian Blue Chamomile.

Homebody's Incredible - and Colorful - Bath Soaks 

These colorful CBD-infused bath soaks are designed to help relax, soothe, and heal the body, and because they smell amazing and add a splash of color to your bath too - they're totally addictive. The brand has several different scents to choose from, and  The Amethyst + Alchemist and I Rose Above It varieties are just a couple of our faves. Grab one bag or a few to make the perfect combo gift for the mom on your list.

Motsi Beauty Collection's organic beauty collection

Motsi’s beauty collection is a great find for moms who love a good self-care day and swear by natural and organic beauty products. All of the products in the collection are vegan, paraben, sulfate, and silicone-free. The brand’s star is its CC Serum with Vitamin C that instantly brightens skin and reduces the appearance of age spots, blemishes, and redness. It’s so good that it’s already sold out, so we recommend scooping up a different stellar product or two for your mom if it’s not back in stock soon.

Motsi’s fans also rave about their Cucumber Herbal Eye Gel, which helps decrease the appearance of dark circles and puffiness around the eyes, and the Detoxifying Charcoal Mask, which leaves skin smooth, naturally exfoliated and enriched.

NRoda's jewelry and sunglasses

We're obsessed with NRoda's unique frames, but the brand's jewelry collection is not to be missed either. NRoda's gold crown rings are perfect for the mom who loves switching up her rings and wearing statement jewelry too. The bonus? They're only $24 each. There's also a variety of affordable necklaces, rings, bracelets, and frames to pair it with on the company's site.

KNC Beauty's eye masks

KNC Beauty’s packs of five gold, star-emblazoned eye masks have developed a cult following (Chrissy Teigen even has them on her Mother's Day gift guide!), and they’re perfect for stressed-out moms who need an extra boost when it comes to bringing tired eyes back to life. Founded by Kristin Noel Crawley, the beauty brand’s budget-friendly eye masks, lip masks, and lip scrubs are designed to banish puffy eyes and moisturize puckers and have gained it a cult following. Go with just the eye masks or grab a few KNC Beauty items to make it a complete gift.

LIVE BY BEING Bath Salt Spa Gift Set

There’s nothing we love more than kicking back on self-care days, and the pandemic has probably made all of us a little bit more savvy in at-home spa treatments. The Live By Being bath salt gift set is one to note. The bottles of relaxing salts are filled with Himalayan pink salt, Drift with Hawaiian black lava salt, and Float with French green clay. It is 100% natural, vegan and cruelty-free. Handcrafted in small batches, the set is packaged in apothecary glass bottles and comes with a wooden scoop.
