It’s the Holiday season — and although 2020 will go down on record as one of the most challenging periods in America’s histories we’ve learned how to find joy in unexpected places. 

Here are a few ideas for great Holiday gifts this year.  The companies with an * are African-American owned and operated.


The new Nest Audio is a simple, soft design with a comfortable price of 

$99.99, it’s one of the best bargains this season. Integrated into the fabric at the top of the speaker are three capacitive touch zones for volume up and down and play/pause, a 75mm (three-inch) woofer, and a 19mm (0.75-inch) tweeter, providing much fuller, clearer sound. — A+


Looks and feels like writing on paper. The battery lasts two weeks in daily use; three months in standby mode. Palm rejection while writing is seamless. Charges via USB-C, as all things should. Generous return policy. reMarkable 2 isn't meant to take the place of your computer. The device is thin—remarkably so, measuring just 4.7 millimeters. That's more than a millimeter thinner than the iPad Pro. It also weighs less than a pound and features a lovely, paperlike 10.3-inch display. Writing is seamless. Simply scrawl away with its dedicated stylus and your thoughts are recorded digitally, leaving you free to keep writing and never worry about running out of pages. For the holidays the company is currently bundling those two accessories with the reMarkable 2 tablets, Marker stylus ($49), or the Folio ($69) case. — A+

Negris LeBrum is an African American Owned, American runway collection that is a regular participant in NYFW. Designed by Creative Director and Founder, Travis Hamilton, Negris LeBrum was inspired by a love story that began during the 1940s, between a young beautiful French Creole woman and a handsome man. Although their love was forbidden by societal difficulties, these individuals were brought together by a force that was greater than both of them and through fashion, their love story is being told to the world. @ negris_lebrum n#negrislebrum #negrisestjoli A+ *
