It’s gift giving season! I know it can feel a little overwhelming when choosing what to get for your loved ones so I’ve curated this list of Jamaican made gifts to give this Christmas.

Not only is this post created for the season but in light of the many racial atrocities the world has seen many people have been more conscious of where their consumer dollar goes. I support this shift of consciousness completely. As a result this list will solely feature local, black-owned businesses.

Skincare

Mahru.co

Starting the list off with a skincare brand I adore. Mahru.co is online based body butter business with a minimalist aesthetic. Every jar is handmade to perfection. Step up your self-care game with a jar of Mahru.co body butter for the holidays. Or gift it to a friend who loves rich, natural scents and creamy body butter.

Simply Luxe Botanicals

Give the gift of glowing skin with a Glow bar from Simply Luxe Botanicals. This brand specializes in natural, handmade soaps infused with the brightening and antibacterial properties of turmeric. Shop the gift of brighter, even skin with Simply Luxe Botanicals.

Handmade jewellery anyone? I’m sure you’re beginning to see a trend here. Jamaica is chock full of creative artisans. It’s not easy trying to pick out a few to list here. While this list is filled with the brands I know and love feel free to support the local, black businesses you know.

Jewellery

Chrissycoils

Rings, earrings, and necklaces she has it all. Carefully coiled handmade jewellery is what you’ll get when you shop with Chrissycoils. Shop with a jewellery brand with sustainably sourced materials. Chrissycoils specializes in copper, gold and silver jewellery so you make your choice today.

Emunah Collective

Emunah is small batch luxury jewellery business featuring brightly coloured earring and accessories. If you’re looking for exclusive pieces you’re in the right place. These handmade jewels will be statement piece to your outfit of choice.

Give the gift of a photoshoot from a talented photographer. This is probably not a hristmas gift idea you’d see often but I think in this digital age a professional photoshoot can set people apart.

Photography/ Photo Shoot

Little Memories

Know someone with a newborn or a bundle of joy arriving soon? Give them the gift of a newborn photoshoot with Little Memories and I’m sure they’ll thank you for years to come. Capture those precious moments before they’re gone with Jamaica’s best newborn photographer.

The Aquareign photography

Now if you need photos for friends or loved ones. Booking a session with Aquareign is a good idea. Whether you’d like professional headshots, lifestyle photos or family portraits you won’t leave disappointed.
