EVER! THE BIGGEST GIFT GUIDE
AFROPHIRE MAGAZINE + HoneyBeNatural MAGAZINE
A Word From
THE EDITOR hhh take a whiff! Can't you just smell the holiday spirit in the air? Thanksgiving menus and Christmas tree placement have already become topics of discussion around here. To be completely honest with you, I'm really just looking forward to being with loved ones. It seems that the older I get and the more that I’ve gone through, I’ve learned to look forward to the little things. For me, it's the warm smiles, hugs, and laughter that fill the atmosphere that truly mean the most. Sure the gifts are a bonus, but we all know that there is so much more to celebrating the holidays than what we receive. Our giving is at the heart of how we celebrate. We give our wrapped gifts, our precious time, and our hard earned coins. But listen, I really want to challenge you to give one more gift—the gift of your support. The importance of supporting black-owned businesses cannot be emphasized enough. This gift guide is filled with the most amazing small businesses who could greatly benefit from supporters like you and me this holiday season. EDITOR’S
Kinky-Curly Knot Today has been a staple of mine for 2 years. This natural leave-in & detangler is a curl saver. It adds great slip, moisturizes, and contains safe ingredients.
We’ve jam packed this gift guide just for you. So give a gift, get a gift, and enjoy!
