Because small businesses need our support always but especially now…
It was so hard narrowing down my gift ideas for Small Business Saturday; there are just so many amazing brands out there selling truly unique items. Here are eight that I not only want for myself, but they also make for an AMAZING holiday gift. Everything below is also on sale for Cyber Week!
8 Gift Ideas to Buy on Small Business Saturday
I loved MARA’s first Universal Face Oil since it launched, AND I recently bought a bottle of their 1.2% retinol oil during Credo’s last sale…just cause I wanted to try it out. The results? UM. Not only is it the most gentle retinol product I’ve tried yet, but it also totally calmed my rosacea! And, yeah, that’s not typical for a retinol product since they can sometimes be irritating to the skin. I definitely recommend this face oil for any of your beauty-obsessed friends or family (or for yourself, natch).

I looove personalized jewelry and this necklace can be customized with your name, your partner’s name, your baby’s name, your last name, etc. It’s just very chic, IMO.

Ok, so this one isn’t technically on sale but, that said, it’s only $14 for a three month subscription! Each month, you (or the person you’re gifting) will receive at least a dozen cookies of varying flavors, depending on what the company is making. From Here to Sunday does not like to waste, so any extras from test runs or overzealous baking will be distributed evenly among subscribers.
The OG mask chains are now in mini form (my favorite) and there’s three colors to choose from! As a bonus, the Nikki Mini can be used as a face mask strap holder, camera strap, lanyard, necklace, and can turn everything with an opening, from your water bottle to your flip flops into a wristlet holder. Also, I should note it’s surprisingly lightweight; I was worried at first since I didn’t want my mask chain to cause any neck pain, but it’s VERY light.

I absolutely love this top and wide leg pant lounge set! If aquamarine isn’t your color, it also comes in red (another favorite for me), and I also love the high waist band – it’s super comfy and the color is just plain chic.

This foot care set is a MUST for you AND for a friend, ok? It’s got everything you need for your softest, smoothest feet ever. You get the brand’s infamous High Dive hydration cream (seriously the best foot cream ever), their therapeutic socks and their professional-grade rasp scrubber (another favorite of mine). This set is basically a spa day for your feet that absolutely everyone will love.

My friend Alexis designs some of my favorite jewelry pieces (like this necklace!). Everything is super high quality (brass and gold-plated), and the designs are a mix of trendy with classic pieces like gold hoops and bangles.

Aside from the fact that I love this company’s name (it’s a Black-owned business, btw!), this candle really caught my eye. Hand-poured with unscented coconut soy wax, it’s just the prettiest accent to any coffee table or shelf.
