Fellas! This is not a drill. The holidays are rapidly approaching, and with the special season greeting us in just a few weeks, now is not the time for us to fall short when it comes to gift giving. In recent years we would probably be left to our own devices, or you know, gift cards, but this year I’ve got you covered.
Through a collaborative effort with my lady The Cubicle Chick, we’re presenting our Holiday Gift Guide for Couples. How does it work? Glad you asked. We gave each other input as to what the opposite sex might want under the tree, taking away the need to guess, instead providing a path to a sure holiday win. Over on Danyelle’s blog she’s holding it down for the ladies looking for luxury offerings for their guys that are Will-approved, and on this blog I’ll be presenting gift ideas that have been run past my love and are sure to satisfy even the choosiest of lovers. Word to Ernie Isley.
Guys, we got this. Shall I proceed? Yes, indeed.
Black Luxe Candles Holiday Gift Box*
Black Luxe Candle Co. is a Black love story. It’s about Brittany and Julius, and how they created a candle collection that is definitely heaven “scent.” Heh. Seriously though…fellas, if your partner loves aromatic amazingness like mine does, this collection is sure to light the right fuse. And just for THIS season, the company is featuring its Black Luxe Holiday Gift Box, which contains the perfect mix of luxury and love. Grab your gift box HERE.
L’Occitane En Provence Lavender Collection
L’Occitane En Provence is the cream (I said what I said!) of the crop when it comes to skincare. Gifting their lavender collection this season, which includes foaming bath, exfoliating body soap, body lotion, hand cream, and pillow mist, will let her know you not only care about her, but about her moisturizing routine as well. Also, you’re welcome.

Delta Airlines Gift Card
I’ve been on airlines lately. Believe me when I say it isn’t pretty. Hopefully the pandemic will end sometime soon and we’ll be able to travel freely once again. But not for free. Purchasing this Delta Airlines gift card will let you know that you’re invested in her future… travel.

Haus of Swag Goddess Bawdy Suit*
I’m proud to say that since I put Danyelle on to Haus of Swag, honestly she can’t get enough. Their clothing line is always poignant and cutting edge, and for the holidays, nothing’s changed. Gifting your lady their Goddess Bawdy Suit will do two things: support a Black entrepreneur, and provide your lady with a comfortable and sexy piece of clothing that you’ll have fun getting her out of. You know what I’m talking about…
Grace Eleyae Warm Knit Slap w/ Pom*
Yes, the temperatures are dropping, and here’s something you can drop into your lady’s lap so she won’t have to worry about her hair when she steps outdoors. This Grace Eleyae Warm Knit Slap w/ Pom is amazing, keeping her head warm and her ‘do intact. Get this goodness right HERE.
One of the most important–and smartest–ways to prove you’re invested in your relationship and your mate’s future is to purchase stocks. And Robinhood, which you can access online, makes the process easy. Do your research, and then do something that will go a long way to securing the future. Check out Robinhood HERE.
Chef Kenny’s Spice Blends*
If your lady considers herself a whiz in the kitchen, or even if she just tries to replicate what she sees on Cooking Channel, she’s gonna need a few tools to keep it spicy. Which is reason enough to gift her with Chef Kenny’s Ultimate Gift Set, which includes raging cajun, fried chicken, moroccan, cinnamon coffee rub, and jerk spice. This bundle could be a game changer.
Foot Nanny Starter Kit*
Listen. It’s true. Most of us take the care of our feet for granted. It’s easy to do, since it’s literally the part of the body farthest from our thoughts. Well, except when… OK. Sorry. Got sidetracked. Show your lady that you don’t take any of her for granted by grabbing the Foot Nanny Starter Kit, a Black-owned creation from founder Gloria Williams. The kit includes a cream, a buffer, and a pair of socks. Trust me, you’ll see the difference. Especially when you’re… *internet temporarily disconnected*
Pear Nova Holiday Essentials Set*
Pear Nova isn’t just a dope Black-owned nail company that offers some of the most original nail paints in the game, it’s also prominently featured on Oprah’s Favorite Things 2020 list. And if it’s good enough for Oprah (actually, what that translates to is, if Oprah took notice of it), then you should too and grab one of their Holiday Essentials Set for your lady. Her nail beds will thank you. Maybe even in bed. Yeah, you get it.
