Giving a Great Gift Can be "Cheap"
If you don’t have a lot to spend, or maybe are just looking for some smaller gifts to give for the Holidays, we have some ideas for you. Everyone can use some items that are a little bit less expensive to fill our gift giving or for your Secret Santa Affairs. Remember the price isn’t what makes the gift good or bad, it is the thought behind it. When you really think about the people you are getting a gift for, making sure it is something that they will use will matter more every time. With all of that out of the way, make sure you check out the rest of our listings here, and see all of our features for our great gift ideas. Here are our list of Black Owned Gifts for under $25.
Crocs are here to stay and with that is making sure your pair is as unique as possible. That’s easy to do with the help of Culture-Clips. You can put together quite a nice package of clips that reflect someone’s personality thanks to the wide collection that they offer. There are also a lot of sales so sign up for the mailing list and really stretch your budget.
Coffee makes a great gift idea. It is growing in popularity and smaller brands are becoming more well known and getting more share as people become familiar with what quality coffee tastes like. Last year we dropped a gift guide of all gifts for the coffee lover and you can check that out for more inspiration. Check out the listings for all of the great varieties, from 2 Bros Coffee (and if you like other coffee treats they have plenty for you) to the Get Down Coffee which can be found at Target stores. There is more than enough to find a coffee brand that fits your style and tastes.
Another great winter idea is tea. There are a lot of people who don’t drink coffee, or who just prefer tea. Luckily, there are a lot of Black Owned Tea Brands you can choose from. There are different styles and tastes for whatever your preference might be. From the more fruity flavors of Tea Please Tea, the natural loose-leaf flavors of Adjourn Tea House, to the more coffee like flavors of Teaspressa, and everything in between you can find great gift ideas. Don’t forget the accessories either, they also make great gifting ideas.
Popcorn is a Holiday staple from tins to bags, it is a great little gift to give as a snack and we have some great options for you. Soul Popped is Soul Food Flavored Popcorn that is unique and comes straight to your door. Flavor Addicts is straight out of the Chicago so you know you can get your tin of Chicago mix, or one of dozens of other delicious flavors. Lushees Gourmet Popcorn does have puffcorn at times for those who dislike kernels, and they also have alcohol infused flavors for the adults as well.
If you are looking for creative and fun candles and bath and body items for a gift, look no further than Shea Makery. This Black Woman Owned brand of bath and body items has been featured all over for good reason. There items are all creative and designed to look like classic food items such as French Toast and Banana Pudding. Just make sure you don’t forget that these aren’t actually edible.
Nails and Nail care are important aspects of fashion and style. For the young fashionista, or the adult who doesn’t want to put their nails through trauma, press on nails are an increasingly viable alternative. Naylpress is a Black Woman Owned Business bringing you fashionable nail options with less work and mess.
Along with the nails, make up is another great gift idea that won’t break your pockets. They also have everything that you could need so if you need to get some items for multiple people, you can get it done here. The regular prices are a great deal, but if you catch a sale, you can really clean up.
Kyvan Foods Honey Apple Salsa is one of my favorite products period. We have to take it and recommend this as a small gift for friends and family. If you know that a person isn’t a cilantro fan, or finds most salsa too strong with the flavor of onions, this salsa can rectify all of that. Kyvan foods also has other great products like hot sauce and barbecue sauce as well, so there are plenty of options for the family. You can also get these products from a variety of sources online so add this on to your cart at Lowes or Amazon although the best deals will come through Kyvan’s own website.
Wine is one of the gifts that keep on giving, and we have plenty of options for both your own home and for gifting to others. From blend and style, to different medium, there are Black Owned Wine options that are available all over the country, and even via shipping. For example Ayaba Wine is canned sangria for your convenience, or you can try Mary J. Blige’s Sun Goddess Wine, or one of the most popular Black Owned Wine labels, Love Cork Screw. Of course, these are just the tip of the iceberg and you can find dozens more in our directory here.
If you know someone who does a game night, or they just enjoy their cards, The Game of Spades is a great gift idea. These playing cards rep for the culture with great unique designs that you won’t find anywhere else. Get the entire Essentials Spades kit that comes with a pad for keeping score as well. They might just break it out while you’re there.
If you have a friend who is organized and makes great use of planners and to-do lists, giving them a gift from Paisley Paper Co can be a great idea. This line has a variety of notepads and planner pages that are great to help your friend get the new year started off on the right foot. Toss in a greeting card too with a special little note just to give it that extra touch.
