With the buzz of Black Friday simmering down, it’s time to turn our attention to Small Business Saturday. Every year, on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, shoppers use their spending power to support boutique brands. It’s an especially great way to show some love to small, Black-owned businesses during the ever-important holiday season. From coily-haired dolls that take representation to the next level to elegant stemware that will elevate any dinner party, Amazon has huge finds from Black owners that you’ll be clamoring to add to your cart. It’s the perfect way to get ahead of your holiday shopping all while buying Black.

The set of two pink coupe glasses is both sophisticated and playful. Forget being shy! These will have everyone talking at your next dinner party. The soft pink, 8-ounce glasses are designed with light-catching, paneled glass for an extra striking appeal. They are perfect for sipping champagne, martinis, cocktails, or even desserts. Consider wrapping them up for the perfect wedding, birthday, or Christmas gift. Cheers!
Lovey Coily Baby Bee Doll
Talk about big hair, don’t care. The Lovey Coily Baby Bee doll represents all the diverse hair textures of Black and Brown girls and comes in a variety of skin tones. It’s all about creating inclusive representation and fostering self-love starting from childhood. The company Orijin Bees is working to normalize inclusion with these adorable baby dolls. In fact, Orijin Bees — a Black-owned business we’ve talked about before, and one of our favorites to support this Small Business Saturday — is actually an acronym that stands for, Our Representation Is Just Inclusion Normalized Beautifully Empowering Every Soul. The dolls are non-toxic and eco-friendly. They come with removable Ankara dresses and matching hair accessories. Children can experiment and style the doll’s curly hair encouraging self-love through pretend play. It’s the perfect gift for kids three to seven years old.
The Cut Buddy Hair Clipper and Trimmer Kit
At-home haircuts can sometimes turn into an epic fail but that doesn’t have to be the case. The Cut Buddy makes it easy to give yourself a cut, trim, or shape up from the comfort of your very own house. The thirty-five-piece hair clipper and trimmer kit include shavers, a foldable comb, a beard detangler, and even a nail care set. But it’s the kit’s shaping tool and barber tracer pencil for edges and curves that really help The Cut Buddy users achieve a mistake-free all on their own. The guide’s multiple sizes and arches help reduce errors when cutting your hair, beard, or mustache. Founder, Joshua Esnard says The Cut Buddy was born out of his frustrations with many unsuccessful home cuts. Now he hopes his solution to those challenging trims will help others find an affordable way to maintain their hair without ever leaving their house.
Hairbrella Waterproof Rain Hat
The days of fearing the forecast are over. It’s time to ditch the shopping bags, newspapers, and even umbrellas when rainy weather pops up. Now there’s a no-fuss way to completely protect your hair from the elements. Hairbrella is a 100% waterproof, satin-lined rain hat that will keep your head dry and protect your chosen hairstyle. Its extra-large design makes it the perfect fit whether you’re rocking a teeny weeny afro or a big blowout. The hat’s plastic bill also helps keep your face dry while protecting you from the sun’s harmful rays. Hairbrella is easy to fold and carry along with you so you’ll never be caught off-guard by a shower or storm again. It comes in a wide range of colors and varying bill sizes.

You can’t help but feel empowered when rocking Bossy Cosmetics — one of our favorite Black-owned businesses to patronize this Small Business Saturday. The Luxe Lipstick Gift Set comes with four tubes that will leave your lips feeling super hydrated. That’s because each lipstick is infused with watermelon seed oil and vitamin E. But it’s the pigments that really make this set stand out. The lipsticks come in a beautiful range of colors from stunning light pink to sultry deep red and are perfect for just about any outfit or mood.

The black, white, and gray onesies are soft, cozy and come with snaps for hassle-free dressing and easy diaper access. Fans of the brand love that it offers simple designs not often found in stores.
