    1. A pre-folded satin scarf to protect your curls in bed or out and about. Can't say no to a helpful item that happens to double as a cool accessory.

    Amazon, BuzzFeed / Christine Forbes

    Glow By Daye is a Black woman-owned small business founded by Ranay Daye and based in Los Angeles. She sells a variety of bonnets, as well as silk pillowcases.

    "Folding a scarf is half the battle and I love that these are pre-folded. They're comfortable, easy to tie, and very cute. Although my first scarf was free, I ended up buying two more. They're that good. Sometimes they slip off, but that's usually when I tie them loosely. My hair is very fine. Using smooth, moisture-retaining fabrics like this drastically reduces my breakage." —Christine Forbes

    Get it from Glow by Daye for $24.96 (available in six colors and patterns).

    2. A pair of classic gold-dipped hoops that are deceivingly lightweight, so you can rock them all day without your ears feelin' it too much.

    Ten Wilde, Chelsea Stuart / BuzzFeed

    Ten Wilde is a Black woman-owned business based in LA.

    "I have a ~thing~ for simple gold jewelry — especially versatile pieces I don't have to fuss with. I throw these babies on whenever I want to look like I put in a little more effort than usual and they totally do the trick! My favorite part is how lightweight they are — they don't tug at my ears or feel heavy after hours of wear." —Chelsea Stuart

    Get them from Ten Wilde for $30.

    3. A variety pack of pre-seasoned beans so you always have a tasty side waiting and ready to heat and serve in minutes. I love the Cuban Black Beans so much I *often* have them as a main dish.

    amazon.com, Amazon, Katy Herman/BuzzFeed

    A Dozen Cousins is a Black-owned business based in San Francisco. The variety pack comes with black beans, pinto beans, chickpea curry, red beans, refried black beans, and refried pinto beans.

    "These are all vegan and made with avocado oil. I personally swear by their black beans, which I have just recently become completely obsessed with. They're so flavorful and perfectly seasoned and shockingly easy. Plus, one bag has about two small servings for one person, so I have leftovers the next day. I've been enjoying them with quesadillas and nachos, in homemade burrito bowls, and over microwave seasoned rice." —Katy Herman

    Get a variety pack of six from Amazon for $24.99.

    4. An Air Jordan 1 Sneaker Candle — a perfect gift for the sneakerhead in your life (even if that sneakerhead is yourself).

    Pretty Honest Candles is a Black woman-owned business. Their candles are hand-poured in Charlotte, North Carolina. 

    "As someone who both collects Jordan sneakers and burns candles daily, I couldn't think of a more perfect product. Pretty Honest Candles is Black woman-owned business that sells handmade, slow burning soy candles. The candles are made without harmful chemicals or additives and give you about 50 hours of burn time. I can't lie, I've only lit it once because I want it to last forever! But, if you're wondering, it definitely does not smell like shoes. It has a fresh scent of mandarin balm, tangelo, and eucalyptus. And once I finally decide to use it all, I will definitely be keeping the jar on display." —Kayla Boyd

    Get it from Pretty Honest Candles for $28

    5. A super-duper cute pink K-Cup coffee maker for anyone who won't settle for anything less than an aesthetically pleasing coffee experience in the morning — and why would you?

    Cool Coffee Clique, Heather Braga / BuzzFeed

    Cool Coffee Clique is a Black woman-owned business that sells an array of coffee products and accessories.

    "I own this coffee machine and it makes me happy every morning. I just really enjoy that it's pink and from a small business! It works perfectly well and it's really simple to add more water into the tank when needed." —Heather Braga

    Get it from Cool Coffee Clique for $129.99.

    6. A pair of tortoiseshell tassel earrings to give your ears a little pizzazz. Listen, it's been a long 18 months of not accessorizing, it's time to go bold!

    Katy Herman / BuzzFeed, Sirena White / The Tiny Tassell

    The Tiny Tassel is a Black woman-owned business based in Charleston, South Carolina.

    "I have wanted something from The Tiny Tassel — a Black woman-owned small business specializing in super whimsical and smile-worthy handmade clothes and accessories — for ages. I finally ordered these adorable earrings, which are such a cool twist on classic hoops and that I’ve already worn multiple times in the past week (they really stand out on video calls!). They perfectly combine several of my favorite fashion things: statement earrings, scalloped details, acrylic tortoiseshell, and a gorgeous lavender hue. They’re new faves for sure." —Katy Herman

    Get them from The Tiny Tassel for $34 (available in nine colors).

    7. A set of "For Kinks" Clip-Ins whose densely-packed strands are designed to add length and volume to Type 4 hair right out of the package. A bit of a splurge, but worth it for the convenience of simply clipping in hair that *actually* matches your texture.

    Christine Forbes / BuzzFeed

    Heat Free Hair is a Black woman-owned small business that makes hair extensions and wigs for Afro-textured hair. They sell lace fronts, wefted hair, full lace wigs, and clip-ins in a variety of textures. The set come with six clip-ins.

    "I have been eyeing Heat Free Hair for 10 YEARS because they are pricey. Now that I've gotten my hands on some clip-ins, I regret waiting so long because they're totally worth it. For context, I have 4b–4c hair. I'm not used to being able to use hair fresh out the box. However, this blends perfectly with my natural hair. Mind you, I installed these in like 20 minutes with minimal stretching. All I did was lightly detangle the hair and put it in where my hair was less dense. It's soft and doesn't have that weird 'new hair' smell or waxy residue. You can tell that these were created by and for Black women. If you're a naturalista looking for an extra full Afro or a ponytail, try these — you won't regret it." —Christine Forbes

    Get it from Heat Free Hair for $189+ (available in three lengths, as well as "For Kurls" and "For Koils")

    8. Some lovely perfume from Lavender Clouds and Poetry — a small fragrance business that makes some of my favorite scents of all time. I particularly recommend "Dripping Nectar Concoction 15," whose warm sweetness is my signature scent of the summer.

    Lavender Clouds and Poetry is a Black woman-owned business. 

    I could not be more impressed with this perfume from Lavender Clouds and Poetry, a Black woman–owned small business whose fragrance quality and ~aesthetic~ are top-notch. I've been lucky enough to try a few scents, but Dripping Nectar is my current favorite. It's fresh with a hint of sweetness — perfect for spring and summer. I've had a problem lately with perfume giving me a headache, but not this perfume! The packaging is beautiful and the bottle feels luxury-quality. What are we waiting for, let's make Lavender Clouds and Poetry a household name!

    Get Dripping Nectar Concoction 15 from Lavender Clouds and Poetry for $29+ (available in two sizes), and shop all of their scents here

    9. A satin-lined headwrap to protect your natural hair in style. These even come with an infinite loop so there's no need to brush up on your headwrap tying skills — easy peasy!

    You Go Natural

    You Go Natural is a Black woman-owned small business based in Dallas. 

    "I have fine 4b/4c hair that I don't always have the time to style. I like YGN headwraps because they're so easy to tie! My hair dries out super easily, so I appreciate that these are satin-lined (for moisture retention). I would 100% recommend these to anyone who is transitioning or worries about breakage." —Christine Forbes

    Get it from You Go Natural for $35 (available in 10 colors and patterns).

    10. A pair of linen boxer shorts to use as actual undies or — as I do — comfy cozy sleep shorts. Linen is undefeated when it comes to breathability, durability, and adorableness, making it perfect for the task or cradling your bum.

    Linoto

    Linoto is a Black-owned business specializing in all things linen. All of their products are made in their workshop in Westchester County, New York.

    I got these boxers to sleep in and *sigh* they're just as wonderful as I hoped they'd be. I want everything to be made out if linen — it's breathable, durable, and only gets softer and more lovely over time — and these are an A+ addition to my growing collection of linen goods. They're very comfy and, as linen is wont to do, ease and stretch to fit *just* right. They wash perfectly and come out of the wash even better than how they went in. Ah, the glory of linen! Highly recommend these as high-quality sleep shorts. 

    Get them from Linoto for $29.95 (available in sizes XS–XXL and 14 colors). 

    11. An Albany Park loveseat — the perfect place to curl up with a good book and wile the day away. Available in bright velvet hues, subdued vegan leather, and classic fabric options, this piece will put the finishing touch on just about any room, no matter the aesthetic.

    Marquaysa Battle / BuzzFeed

    Albany Park is a Black-owned family business based in Texas. 

    "This navy loveseat is PERFECT. I ordered the Navy Blue Albany loveseat because my family likes to crowd in my parents' massive bedroom to watch movies from time to time. I wanted something else to sit on besides their bed... because yuck. I will always be a child about that and feel like it's gross, lol. Anywho, we have another accent chair in the room as well (room's way larger than my camera phone would allow me to depict, lol) which has a print so this navy design was perfect for toning down the patterns in the room and now everyone has somewhere to sit!

    The loveseat came packaged carefully in a box. It was easy and quick to put together and I was actually surprised at how comfy it is to sit on — and straight outta the box! We did do a bit of jumping up and down on the cushions to achieve a lil' extra plushness and I'm excited that it'll only get softer over time. I appreciated that this loveseat had the option to order gold or walnut legs. Also: IT DOES NOT LOOK CHEAP IRL — which is often my concern with ordering seating online. I didn't want a "what I asked for vs. what I got" situation and the Albany Park brand did not disappoint." —Marquaysa Battle

    Get it from Albany Park for $895 (originally $999, available in eight colors/fabrics and with two leg styles). 

    12. Some wine from Love Corkscrew for celebrating with friends, sipping luxuriously in the bath, or snuggling up with while watching season one zillion of Grey's Anatomy. They have something for every occasion!

    Emma Lord/BuzzFeed

    Love Corkscrew is a Black woman-owned business based in Chicago.

    "I love wine, but I love wine with a theme, and Love Cork Screw delivers both on exceptional taste and catchy names that make it a great option to jazz up the end of your week, gift to friends, or celebrate fun occasions with. I tried the 'Touch the Sky' Niagara, the 'Head Over Heels' Riesling, the 'Hard Knock Life' Concord, the 'We Go High' Rosé, and the 'We're Movin' On Up' Cabernet Sauvignon. I'm a red wine lady at heart, so I wasn't surprised that the latter was, of the five, my absolute favorite — rich and smooth and with a subtle, dark kind of sweetness. The most intriguing was the 'Hard Knock Life,' a super sweet red table wine that seems PRIME for drinking chilled on long nights hanging out with friends outside in the summer. I loved all of them, but also a shoutout to the 'Head Over Heels' Riesling, which had the perfect balance of crisp and sweet. I can't wait to enjoy these with friends!" —Emma Lord

    Shop Love Corkscrew's wines starting at $18.

    13. Silk scrunchies from Raie Atelier, because *yes* they're trendy, but they're also utilitarian, if you ask me. Being able to throw my hair up without searching high and low for a teeny-tiny, virtually microscopic hair tie? Heaven.

    Rachel Dunkel / BuzzFeed

    Raie Atelier is a Black woman-owned small business based in NYC.

    I never thought I would join in on the scrunchie trend, but alas, here I am! I bought three scrunchies from Raie Atelier at the beginning of this year and I can count on one hand the amount of times I've used any other hair tie since then. These genuinely hold my hair up so well, but, since they're made of silk, never pull or rip my hair (even when I leave them in overnight, which would normally make my hair knot around a hair tie). They feel like a true ~accessory~ and I like having multiple colors to match — or purposefully mismatch — my outfits. Love, love, love.

    Get them from Raie Atelier on Etsy for $6.50+.

    14. Or some Jane Dottie Vintage scrunchies that each come in a variety of sizes to accommodate all kinds or hair textures, types, and styles. They come in *so* many fabrics and patterns, good luck choosing just one!

    Jane Dottie Vintage is a Black woman-owned business founded by by Tatyana ZW Alanis in 2019.

    "Giant scrunchies are the accessory I never knew I needed. I have big, curly Type 3 hair and I'm constantly putting it up and taking it down throughout the day. These adorable scrunchies make throwing my hair up in a messy bun so much more fun. The satin ones are especially great for being gentle on your hair. In addition to the most beautiful scrunchies I've ever seen, they also sell curated vintage finds, jewelry, and more." —Kayla Boyd

    Get them from Jane Dottie Vintage starting at $11 (available in mini–extra large sizes). 

    15. A Luv Scrub mesh body exfoliator to achieve silky smooth skin just by washing your body. Best of all, it stretches up to 50 inches, making getting at your back no problem at all.

    Emma Lord/BuzzFeed

    Luv Scrub is a Black woman-owned business founded by Caroline Owusu-Ansah, who is introducing people to West African methods of mesh exfoliation one customer at a time. This product is so popular it's often sold out, so go go go!

    "I'm so obsessed with this exfoliator that I'm just choosing to forget all the years I lived without it. First of all, it suds up my body wash like nobody's business — I probably have to use about a quarter as much of it now to get really sudsy good coverage. It's flexible and extendable, which makes it ridiculously easy to reach places all over my body, in particular my shoulders and back. You can bunch it up to your preferred thickness if you want more of a light exfoliation or a deeper one in different places of your body. As someone who has had bumpy and rough skin on my arms, I noticed a MASSIVE difference in the smoothness of my skin from the very first use. I also just love the pop! of pink in my shower, it makes me happy to look at it." —Emma Lord

    Get it from Luv Scrub for $18 and shop all of their colors here.

    16. A tumeric latte mix so you can look forward to a warm, tasty (not to mention beautiful!) beverage every morning at a fraction of the cost of what you'd pay at a specialty coffee shop.

    Golde is a Black woman–owned business founded in 2017 in Brooklyn. 

    "In search of something to calm my angry stomach, I discovered the Black woman-owned brand Golde and this amazing turmeric latte blend. Honestly, my stomach has gotten better (coincidence or not, it’s too soon to tell), but either way I’ll keep buying this yummy powder mix. I add it to warm milk, mix it with a frother, add a little honey, and am left with a soothing, not-at-all-terrible-for-me treat to end my day with." —Danielle Healy

    Get it from Golde for $29

    17. A Multi-Use Softening Leave In Conditioner by Melanin Haircare that's formulated with aloe vera, argan oil, and jojoba oil — a symphony of moisture that will have your type 4 hair rejoicing.

    Christine Forbes / Buzzfeed

    Melanin Haircare is a Black woman–owned business that makes conditioner, shampoo, oil, and other accessories for afro-textured hair.

    "Trust me, I've bought five — and it's not because the bottle was embarrassingly small. You actually get quite a bit of product. This conditioner has changed my hair. It's longer, stronger, and more manageable." —Christine Forbes

    Get it from Ulta for $18.99.

    18. An adjustable satin-lined beanie for keeping your hair protected and happy no matter how hard the weather tries to interfere. Whether you're trying to keep straight hair smooth or retain moisture in your curls, this is your cap!

    Chantel Turner / BuzzFeed

    Grace Eleyae is a Black woman–owned business helping people protect their hair in style.

    "This satin-lined cap actually smooths my hair and shields me from my kryptonite (💦) — basically, it delivers on all its promises and also picks up my flat iron's slack. The two I own both have adjustable strings on the back so I can tighten it when I'm using it for bed or loosen it when I'm wearing it outside. After having this cap for two years, I've noticed so many other benefits: my hair is shinier, longer, feels healthier, and has less breakage. Even on days where the humidity is higher than the temperature, my hair stays perfectly coiffed 💅🏾." —Chantel Turner

    Get it from Amazon: the cap with an adjustable drawstring for $29.95 (available in eight colors) and a non-adjustable version for $19.99 (available in five colors).
