Black Owned Gift Basket Inspiration: Businesses to Support During Black History Month

Black Owned Gift Basket Inspiration: Businesses to Support During Black History Month

Black History Month, which began in the 1900s, was form after the thirteenth amendment assisted in abolishing slavery in the US.  This month marks time for us to highlight our African American ancestors and significant roles they played in our community. Besides recognizing our influential women like Claudette Colvin, Septima Poinsette Clark, Phillis Wheatley, and Dr. Patricia Bath, we can also prepare gift baskets to either participate in a college giveaway or to gift to our loved ones. 

Therefore, for the month of February and going forward our goal as Southern Belles and Southern Beaus should be to shop, support, and encourage Black Owned Business and put our earnings back into our community, culture, and heritage. For these reasons, I am going to highlight a few tips and ways to create a Black History Month Gift Basket and black businesses you should include in this creative gift giving idea. 

Black History Month Gift Basket Tips

Tip 1) Think Outside the Basket

When creating the basket, take your ideas out of the basket. Find gifts and accessories that almost any Southern Belle will enjoy. Include a multitude of items to please those receiving the gifts. 

Tip 2) Order Ahead

If we are planning to include these businesses below it is best that we order ahead to have items delivered and ready to be packed into the gift basket. Make sure you order enough items to include in each basket. Make a list ahead of time and watch as this process becomes even smoother.

Tip 3)Pick A Theme 

Of course we have many women who have served as a trailblazer in our community and if we are able to include these individuals in the basket, why not. For instance, a Maya Angelou basket could include pictures of her while also providing her poetry book, And Still I Rise, as a gift to feature in the basket. Choose your phenomenal women to feature and stick to that theme for the gift basket. 

Gifts to Add in Your Black History Month Basket

Books 

Black History Month lies within our previous history and the best way to learn more about history is through books and reading. Here are a few suggestions for theme baskets or gifts to give this Black History Month.
