The holiday season is upon us and now is the time to start thinking about what you’ll be buying your loved ones this year. While many people approach their gift-giving strategies by thinking about what their family and friends would want most, another approach is to think about who you want to support with your hard-earned money. While major online markets and big-box stores have a wide variety of gifts and can usually get them to you quickly, buying there means that your wages are going into the pockets of owners who already have millions. Most likely, they also have the privilege of their whiteness to keep their wealth and success going while their employees go overlooked.

Support Entrepreneurs of Colors with This BIPOC Holiday Gift Guide

This year, make sure that your consumerism stays more in line with your values by shopping at brands owned by BIPOC, or Black, Indigenous, and People of Color. If your family member wants a specific gift that’s usually sold in those big box stores, such as the popular game Minecraft that had sold over 200 million copies as of May 2020, you can still support BIPOC by shopping at a smaller BIPOC-owned store or online shop that sells more general gifts. You just have to get a little creative and put a little work into finding the right store. And by shopping for holiday gifts now, you can still get your gifts in plenty of time while making a tangible difference in people’s lives. Let’s take a look at just a few of the many brands owned by BIPOC that you can support this holiday season.

1. Viva La Silk

Support Entrepreneurs of Colors with This BIPOC Holiday Gift Guide

This black-owned business was founded by artist My-Cherie and sells 100% silk scarves, kimonos, and wrap pants. Everything from Viva La Silk is made in wearable art designs, which are all inspired by My-Cherie’s Afro-Caribbean heritage. All of their scarves, kimonos, and wrap pants are made in small batches in Austin, TX and are hand-dyed, hand-painted, and hand-sewn. The dyes and paints used to make the brand’s eye-catching designs are eco-friendly, non-toxic, and a few of the designs are even created from repurposed silk. If you have an eco-conscious fashionista in your life, get their gift from Viva La Silk this year.

2. Fortress Water

Support Entrepreneurs of Colors with This BIPOC Holiday Gift Guide

Fortress Water is a hemp alkaline brand that gives back to My Style Matters, a nonprofit that provides cancer patients and survivors with holistic support, through their hemp-infused water. This water has many holistic benefits, such as boosting energy levels and can help prevent diseases, such as cancer and heart disease. The CBD in the water helps provide relaxation as well. James Williams founded Fortress Water with the goal of helping a loved one who was diagnosed with breast cancer as well as other survivors worldwide. By investing in Fortress Water this holiday season, you can support cancer survivors and patients as well as a black business owner.

3. Heathmade

Support Entrepreneurs of Colors with This BIPOC Holiday Gift Guide

Headed by one of the youngest entrepreneurs, Heathmade was founded and created by a ten-year-old. This youth, however, doesn’t prevent the products from being high-quality. All Heathmade products are made with the best ingredients, including anti-inflammatory witch hazel, antimicrobial essential oils, antioxidant-rich vitamin E oil, and soothing aloe vera gel. If your skin is so dry that it feels like it’s suffering from corrosion, which costs each of the U.S. armed services an average of $5 billion per year, invest in these lotion bars, hand sanitizers, lip balms, and deodorants. With the COVID-19 pandemic still affecting the country, your loved ones will appreciate something to keep their skin soft as they continue with frequent hand washing.

What’s the Most Popular Valentine’s Day Candy in Every State?

What’s the Most Popular Valentine’s Day Candy in Every State?

With 90% of Americans regularly treating themselves to a sweet, frozen dessert, it’s no wonder we go crazy for candy on Valentine’s Day. Chocolate is the old favorite, but there’s more variety than you might think when it comes to picking the perfect Valentine’s Day candy for your sweetheart.

For a long time, conversation hearts — those sweet candies with phrases like “be mine” and “xoxo” on them — won the battle of the sweets. But this year there’s a new top pick for Valentine’s Day candies. Here’s a breakdown of what’s sure to sell out when people are buying sweet treats for their sweethearts this year.

Which Candy Won Out?

For a long time, SweetHearts conversation hearts dominated the Valentine’s candy market. But they suffered a set back last year when they failed to appear on store shelves. That had a significant and lingering effect on conversation hearts.

In their place, treats like M&M’s are moving up. M&M’s claimed the number one spot in three states this year: Arizona, Kansas and New Jersey. That may be in part due to the drop off in conversation hearts. But M&M’s Cupid’s Mix and Cupid’s Message products also quickly became favorites since hitting the market.

Of course, the old staples are still well represented. Things like heart-shaped boxes of chocolates, Hershey kisses and chocolate roses placed in the top three for several states. Don’t count on these longtime favorites disappearing any time soon. Alongside M&M’s and conversation hearts, gift boxes, chocolate roses, and general chocolates appear as frequent contenders for each state’s favorite Valentine’s candy.

Here’s one you may not have considered: Cupid corn. Often associated with Halloween, candy corn is also making a push during Valentine’s Day. While candy corn, in general, is falling off as a favorite among consumers, there are some places, like Michigan, where the candy is still incredibly popular on Valentine’s Day and other holidays.
