Gabby Bows:

FINALLY! A girls’ hair barrette that won’t disappear! The Double-Face Double-Snap Barrette by GaBBY! Invented by a seven year-old and her Mom! And I can say from personal experiences that these barrettes are the truth! When I first saw adorable Gabby on Black Biz Scope, I knew I was going to buy whatever she was selling because I wanted to support. But if you’re as tired as I was with replacing barrettes, then this is your one stop solution to doing just that.

I love all of the colors and designs and my girls love them too. Save an additional 30% off the PERFECT STOCKING STUFFER: GaBBY Bows! Buy six packs and get the seventh pack free with the coupon code MERRY6: gabbybows.com/shop.

Maya India Natural products (Jr gift set):

MayaIndia products are dessert inspired bath and body treats that look and smell good enough to eat. They like to call them their Handmade Dessert for Your Skin. Maya India (named after their two daughters) takes  great care to create authentic replications of your favorite dessert items. But although their products are made primarily with natural ingredients, please refrain from eating them (they really do look good enough to eat)!

You will find that they are filled with skin loving ingredients that will nourish and moisturize dry skin and restore a radiant glow.  MayaIndia products are made with 100% organic oils and contain no parabens or sulfates. MayaIndia Handmade Dessert for Your Skin- a 100% Calorie- Free Indulgence!

Coco’Pie Clothing has the perfect tees to celebrate #BlackGirlMagic for little brown girls; aiming to promote self-esteem and the power of self-recognition.

My girls are 4 and 6 and are absolutely in love with this brand (the older one has self-appointed herself as an ambassador). I can literally see the look of pride on their faces when they wear their “There’s Power in These Puffs” T-shirts, or open up a package from them. Use code BMWK for 10% off your purchase. 

Jewels of Jordan:

Gabrielle began creating jewelry at the age of 7 after watching an instructional video on YouTube. She originally sold her designs to friends and family, but after launching her business, expanded her platform to sell at local seminars and workshops. In June of 2011, she launched her online store, due to high demand, and has become a highly sought-after guest inside and outside the DC metropolitan area, traveling to sell her products.

The jewelry features elegant necklaces, bracelets, and earrings designed and hand-crafted by Gabrielle, and are comprised of precious and semi-precious gemstones, Swarovski elements, and cultured pearls. The flagship collection, “Mommy and Me”, consists of matching jewelry sets for mothers and daughters.

Forever Free Books:

Founded by Tanya Barnett, this organization was created to do just that – provide free books to children. She founded Forever Free Books as her mission to ensure every child she comes in contact with has the opportunity to own a book of their choice to begin a home library.

Their mission is to increase the reading and comprehension skills of disadvantaged children by conducting literacy events and distributing free books in their communities. You can make a donation or find out how to become a partner to help ensure every child has the adventure of reading books from the comfort of their home.

Gourmet Sweets & Treats:

Sweet treats make some of the best holiday treats to give away to family, friends and co-workers! These last few businesses offer all things sweet treats created and baked to goodness by black-owned businesses.

Veggie Cakes:

Vegan gourmet desserts redefined. If you’re really looking to put a smile on someone’s face this holiday season, I guarantee that these cupcake jars from Veggie Cakes will do the trick.
