Holiday Heritage: Black-Owned Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Holiday Heritage: Black-Owned Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Preparing to give gifts for a holiday or special occasion is sometimes a procrastination or decision game for some of us. We either wait until the weekend before; when stores are extremely packed, to begin to look for gifts or browse around online for weeks looking for the ideal item that our gift receiver will love. Many of us suffer from these issues when gift giving and I am here to provide some assistance when gift giving for our next upcoming holiday; Mother’s Day!

 

On Sunday, May 9th, mothers, grandmothers, and maternal figures will be reaping all the benefits from their hard work throughout the year. In 1907 the modern holiday Mother’s Day was first celebrated and still 114 years later,  we continue to honor those who have shaped us and always been there for us. Even though we may tell these women that they are appreciated daily or weekly, this year Mother’s Day we should honor them even more. For us to do so, I have curated a list of black owned businesses that provide products that I know the Southern Belles in our lives will LOVE! 

 

4 Black-Owned Gifts to Assist With Your Mother Day Appreciation 

 

Sweetie Pie’s Cookbook: Soulful Southern Recipes, from My Family to Yours

Miss Robbie Montgomery is the owner of Sweetie Pie’s, an acclaimed soul food restaurant located in St. Louis, Missouri, and is the author of Sweetie Pie’s Cookbook.  Filled with her most favored soulful recipies —smothered pork chops, salmon croquettes, baked chicken—mixed with heartfelt and funny stories is why this book is the ideal gift for your mother. Even though your mother or grandmother is a great cook, this cookbook will provide each of them with a new outlook on Southern recipies they may have never tried and can whip up for others to enjoy. 

 

Beloved Gift Shop 

 

Artwork is not a common gift that many individuals buy for the Black Southern Belles in their lives. However, the Beloved Gift Shop has artwork that serves as a thoughtful gift for every occassion. Sunday morning visualization, side by side soulmates, dancing outdoors are just a few aspects of artwork that the Beloved Gift shop on esty provides. If you want an art piece that is one of a kind and relatable to our culture, this is the gift shop for artwork that your Black Southern Belle will appreciate. 

 

Carol A. Simmons Gallery

Another artist that has artwork perfect for Mother’s Day is Carol A. Simmons. As an artist who mixes watercolor or acrylic with fabric and/or paper collage and is oftentimes inspired by spirituals, New Orleans jazz and the Gullah/Geechee culture of South Carolina; Simmons paintings are just what the maternal figures in our lives adore. 

 

Adjourn Tea House

 

When you think of the norm items in the South, tea should come to mind. Tea is a beverage that is enjoyed by many Black Southern Belles and their families and in different ways. Hot or cold, sweet or sweeter, tea is great to enjoy and also a great gift to give. Owner of Adjourn Tea, LaTonia is a self-proclaimed tea lover like many of our Mothers and has crafted a small tea and wellness brand for other Black Southern Belles to enjoy.  This artisanal loose leaf tea company offers peppermint, spearmint, ginger and black tea or steamed green tea, strawberry, blackberry leaf and much more.  With this being said, Adjourn Tea may be what your Black Southern Belle needs to accompany her while she appreciaates the art and books in her home. 



These four black owned businesses are great places to purchase your Mother’s Day gift items from. No matter if the maternal figure in your life enjoys artwork and reading accompanied with tea, any of these items will be perfect for her this Mother’s Day.
