From tanks and tees to bracelets, earrings, and even boots, the collection includes something for everyone.

For aroma lovers – Posh Candle Co.
These scented soy candles captivate the senses and enhance your space with premium fragrance oils that are phthalate-free. No matter your taste, you’re getting an earth-friendly candle that is cruelty-free and vegan. The use of long-lasting non-GMO soy wax gives you hours of burn time in medium to large areas such as your living room, bedroom, office and kitchen.
For the men in your life – A Few Wood Men
You can tell a lot about a gentleman by the watch on his wrist. That’s why we love the timepieces at A Few Wood Men, a wooden watch collection designed and created for men of distinction. Better than these beautiful timepieces is the purpose behind the product – a sounding board for Black Men who are striving to break barriers while still being fathers, husbands and leaders in their communities.
For the art enthusiast – Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater
One of the world’s most popular dance companies, Alvin Ailey, is beginning its 21-city North American tour this December. If you or a loved one who is a lover of the arts is in the city of an engagement, this is the perfect gift. These tickets can sell out so take advantage of early bird pricing while you can.
For the shoe lover – Aminah Abdul Jillil
These shoes simply put are HOT. We absolutely love this black shoe designer and her collections. The signature Aminah Abdul Jillil staple is a gorgeous bow pump- and we absolutely love bows! She has women and kids shoes and if you’re a designer shoe girl then you’ll love these.
To finish the job – Copper and Brass Paper Goods
No gift would be complete without gift wrapping! Copper and Brass Paper Goods provides a selection of diverse paper good products meant to celebrate the diversity in the black community.
