Gift-giving is a love language. (Or, at least it is for me!) However, finding the right thing for your friend, significant other, sibling, or parent can be a challenge—which is where we come in. To help you with your holiday shopping this season, we've compiled a list of beauty and wellness gifts from Black-owned businesses. From items your favorite person can pop into their bag for a midday pick-me-up to self-care staples they can integrate into their daily routines, there's something for absolutely everyone.
Read on for the best Black-owned beauty and wellness gifts to give this season.
54 Thrones Makeda Body Melt
Nothing says self-care like a long hot shower. This hand-crafted body balm—which is made with hydrating shea and cocoa butters and infused with Moroccan blue tansy—is the hydrating (and anxiety-fighting) gift that keeps on giving.
Gilded Body The Marble Body Brush
Making time to care for your body isn't always on everyone's checklist, but we think gifting a handmade marble body brush could entice them to take an extra five minutes to reap the exfoliating, nervous system-soothing benefits associated with dry brushing. Plus, it comes in six gorgeous marble colors.
Pat McGrath Labs Mothership VIII Artistry Eyeshadow Palette
If your loved one is into eyeshadow, you literally can't go wrong with a Pat McGrath palette. This one comes with 10 buildable, high-impact shades that sculpt, highlight, and transform the eyes.
Bread Beauty Supply Hair Oil
Gifting hair products can be tricky. However, this three-blend oil works for even my dryness-prone 4c curls. If you snag this for a curly-haired person in your life, tell them we recommend this oil as a pre-poo. It's truly a game-changer (and the packaging is beautiful).
Beneath Your Mask Illuminate Clarifying Face Mask
A clay mask is a beauty essential everyone needs in their skincare routine. Made with French green clay, honey, and coconut milk, this combination of ingredients clarifies, brightens, and increases cell turnover without drying out the skin.
Prayer and Plans The Maya Silk Set
Who wouldn't love to slip into a set of monogrammed silk PJs after a CBD bath on their day off? These emerald green silk pajamas come with a long-sleeved button-down top, drawstring trousers, and a message of encouragement embroidered on the collar that reads, "The best is yet to come."
HomeBody Full Spectrum of Possibilities Pearlescent CBD Bath Soak

Brown Girl Jane Rest Daily Drops
Resting isn't something that needs to be earned. This mantra might be difficult to get your hard-working best friend to understand fully, but CBD could be just what they need to help them feel relaxed. Made with a blend of 1500mg of broad-spectrum CBD, this tincture is designed to be used nightly without any morning grogginess.
Epi.Logic Daily Dose Vitamin C + Multivitamin Defense Serum
Giving the gift of skincare is one thing that never goes out of style. Formulated by board-certified oculofacial plastic surgeon Dr. Chaneve Jeanniton, this vitamin C serum comes highly recommended. Even if your friend doesn't send a thank you note, their skin will show its gratitude.

Each sample has a different vibe and serves up to three cups of tea.
UOMA Beauty Black Magic Metallic Lipstick
Lipstick wearers typically have a signature shade. However, some are open to trying new formulas or striking new hues. UOMA Beauty's metallic lipstick offers six shades in a bold red tube. Whichever hue you decide to gift, we know it'll be a shimmering winner.
OUI the People Matte Gold Razor + Shave Gel-to-Milk
When you have a gold razor and a hydrating gel ready to give you a close shave sans ingrown hairs, shaving becomes (dare I say it) enjoyable.

Fenty Beauty Glossy Posse Mini Gloss Bomb Set: Holo'Daze Edition
Fenty Beauty's foundation is one of the brand's highlights, but can we take a moment to talk about the Gloss Bomb? The universal gloss works on bare lips, liners, and over matte lipsticks when you want a little hydration. This trio comes in a dainty mini-set, so you don't have to choose just one.
Chris Collins Discovery Set
Buying a fragrance for someone can be hit-or-miss. With this seven-piece set, your loved one can take their time finding their new favorite scent.
Grace Eleyae All Silk Turban
Finding the perfect nighttime wrap for natural hair that stays put overnight can take a few tries. If you've ever heard a friend complain about this very thing, this adjustable silk turban is the answer—trust.
Epara Skincare Eye Serum
Eye serums are a must to keep the most delicate part of our skin hydrated. However, they're still an overlooked beauty item, especially for those just building a skincare routine. Epara's eye serum fights dark circles and hyperpigmentation, as well as firms and hydrates the skin. All in all, it's an excellent gift skincare newbies and certified beauty vets alike.

Candles are an ideal gift for any occasion. This chic handmade option is made with apricot and coconut blend wax (for a clean burn) and a lead-free cotton wick. Its grounding notes of smoky vanilla and warm cashmere are paired with hints of peach and a woodsy basenote, and its burn time is 75 hours.
Peak and Valley Balance My Stress Adaptogen Blend Herbal Supplement
Supplements may not seem giftable, but for those who already take them daily or have mentioned wanting to integrate supplements into their routine, starting with a balancing blend is a nice place to start. The mixture is made with medicinal mushroom extracts and herbs that decrease fatigue, protect the immune system, and improve blood flow. Plus, this supplement pairs well with coffee, milk, and teas.
Glory Skincare Box
Building a skincare routine can be an overwhelming task, which is why the Glory Skincare Box wants to take all the guesswork out. To get your personalized box, you first take a skincare quiz. Then, a box is curated with seven full-size, cruelty-free, and non-toxic skincare items with your specific skincare needs in mind. If you're gifting this experience, you can purchase and send a gift card.
