I just love Valentine’s Day. Whether I am coupled up or not, it’s always a time where love seems to be in the air–literally. It’s a fluffy and light holiday that can be celebrated with your mate, or your friends, or even with friends and family.
Love is love!
This year, I wanted to curate a Valentine’s Day Gift Guide featuring Black Owned Businesses. I’ve done V-Day gift guides in the past, but it’s the focus on Blackness for me. In a time where many businesses are struggling financially, I want to help those that are in our communities. They need our support now more than ever.
My Valentine’s Day Gift Guide features an array of gifts for your Boo Thang, husband, wife, sponsor (lol), bestie, and more. You’re sure to find something for that someone special on my list.
