Last-Minute Valentine's Day Gifts To Celebrate Black Love

Shop this list of Black-Owned businesses this holiday.

Valentine's Day, a special day set aside for love, is at the center of Black History Month. This was precisely why we found it most appropriate to celebrate the special day with a celebration of Black love and affection.

You know the friendship of The Obamas, the laughter of The Manns, the endless support of The Currys, the peace of Wilsons, and the harmony of Nash-Betts. This is what loving relationships are all about.

Black love is so magical it has its own day. In 1993, Black Love Day was created by Ayo Handy-Kendi—the founder of the African American Holiday Association—to be celebrated on February 13th as an alternative to Valentine's Day for Black Americans. You have options!

So whether you celebrate VDay or Black Love Day, this is the perfect time to gift your loved one with something that they'll always hold close to their hearts.

Below, you will find a curated list of last-minute gifts for your bae. From heart-shaped earrings to intoxicating fragrances, we have a list of everything you need to make your lover feel appreciated.
