Here’s another way to help you support Black-owned businesses this season.
Just in time for the holiday shopping season, Oprah is out with her Favorite Things list and this year, 50 of the 72 products selected were created by Black-owned or -led businesses.
While O, the Oprah Magazine has always believed that Black lives, and Black-led businesses, matter, this year, she put her name and brand behind supporting Black businesses.
"We've got some fascinating gifts for everybody in your life," Oprah says. "Everyone could use some extra joy. It is my hope that this year's list will inspire you to express your gratitude for the people that matter most. And to support more Black-owned businesses all year round."
From Rihanna's million-dollar brand to Mented Cosmetics (sponsors of The Community Voice’s 2020 Mother Daughter Look-a-Like Contest) to delectable treats made by Oprah's own family members, the list has an array of gifts, that uphold O’s Favorite Things List tradition of quality and creativity.
The items are divided into eight categories: stylish finds, cozy gifts, beauty gifts, for the home, for the kitchen, for the family, for the pets, and gifts for foodies.
Even if you don’t need any of these items right now, Oprah encourages everyone to learn more about these brands in hopes that you’ll share the word and purchase from them in the future.
The list can be found online at oprahmag.com. Many of the businesses are extending extra discounts just for Oprah fans and supporters.
Move fast, several of the items are already sold out.
