I’m not exaggerating when I tell you I live in Maison Miru products. This woman-owned business is my go-to for dainty but meaningful accessories. These evil-eye earrings are on my own holiday wish list, but I already own their lightning bolt studs, chill pill necklace (my favorite), classic huggie hoops, and tiny crystal studs (just to name a few!).

If this classic ’80s film is not for you check out their other sets, such as The Princess Diaries, To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, or Gilmore Girls.

Promising review: “Obsessed with my furoshiki scarf. The print is the cutest thing and I can wear it so many different ways! And to top it all off, it’s made from 100% recycled plastic bottles, so I’m also helping the environment…win-win!!” —Danielle

Show & Tell is a Black-, queer-, woman-owned brand that has a slew of quirky gifts your loved ones are gonna adore.

Indulgence Spa is a Maryland-based, Black woman-owned Etsy shop established in 2015 that specializes in soaps, hair care, and body products.

“I recently started using this myself in the Three Wishes Tea flavor (a combo of tea leaves, peaches, rosebuds, and marigolds) and the smell alone is swoon-worthy, but I love love love how it feels in the shower. It has a satisfying creamy whipped texture, but suds up when you use it so you get that nice satisfying squeaky clean feeling, too. It’s lasting a long time, too (which is great, but means I have to wait a little longer to try the other flavors 😂).”

I have a handful of cups from this small, woman-owned business and can’t wait to gift them to my loved ones for Christmas. Kelle also makes an array of Disney and Star Wars-themed cups if Harry Potter isn’t your thing.

Get them from Kelle’s Magical Corner on Etsy: the Niffler cup for $18+ (available in three colors and with or without personalization, the Three Broomsticks cup for $14+ (available in six styles and with or without personalization).

DOES IT GET MORE MAGICAL THAN 3D PRINTING!? I THINK NOT! Sign me up for *anything* with The Child on it, OK? This small biz is owned by an unstoppable husband-and-wife team — ya’ love to see it.

PopsByLizzy is a woman-owned Etsy shop based in my hometown of Long Island, New York! Each item is clearly crafted with care and will make for a truly special gift.

Promising review: “I got this pop for my boyfriend and he absolutely loved it! Lizzy made it so easy and was very quick with her responses and super helpful. Not only did the Funko look exactly like my boyfriend but it was amazing for the price. I’m so glad I ordered from her because she was so sweet and the Funko turned out perfect and exactly what I wanted! I would definitely purchase again!!” —Victoria

This small biz is run by a husband and wife team in Bloomington, Illinois. They offer other cute, but spooky, miniatures that’ll fit perfectly inside a stocking.

Promising review: “Just too dang adorable. The happiness of simply opening the package was worth the (super affordable!) price. I am so happy I got to support a small business and my little ghosty is a wonderful new addition to my autumn family!” —Kayla Palmisano

These cards are unbelievable — and have been lovingly created by a queer- and woman-owned small business. The deck comes with 78 cards, a booklet (so you can quickly learn what you’re workin’ with), and are made of a stunning holographic material. My favorite thing about them? The cards are gender neutral. Traditional tarot cards have mentions of kings, queens, and knights, but this deck has replaced them with rulers, sovereigns, and conquerors.

This family-owned small business began after tragedy struck in their community of Sandy Hook, Connecticut. They wanted to reprioritize their lives and focus on something that would benefit the community — which lead to this absolutely delish maple syrup collection. I’ve been lucky enough to try the majority of the flavors and can tell you firsthand each one is incredible. You’ll probably want to get yourself a bottle as well and whip up a big batch of pancakes ASAP.

Get it from Maple Craft Foods for $12.99 and check out all of the other flavors here.

These too-cute, waterproof and scratch-resistant stickers come from a small woman-owned business which makes them even more precious, IMO.

My Oh My Supply Co. is a small business run by two incredibly talented ladies — one of whom is a member of my team at BuzzFeed, Ali Faccenda, and Lindsey Whalen. They create magical apparel you’ll definitely want to add to your own collection of Disney items. I already bought three of these ornaments and can’t wait to slip them into my sisters’ stockings.

Get a single ornament from My Oh My Supply Co. for $11 or buy five and get the sixth free (available in 15 styles).

The ingredients in these chocolate bars are organic and sourced locally from New York. The company is Black woman-owned — the founder and head chocolatier Jessica Spaulding has been working with chocolate since she was 9 years old!

This queer, woman-owned business makes my heart happy. They have so many great products featuring incredible colors and ideas that, honestly, you might find it hard to pick just one thing!

Promising review: “Love these! I work for Frito-Lay and our EQUAL team (LQBTQ+ team) loves them! good quality pins and some fun for work!” —Noelani Livingston

I am a huge fan of Olive and June’s nail polish. It’s co-owned by two incredible women who clearly know their stuff when it comes to manicures. It goes on very smoothly and doesn’t chip even after a week! I personally have this “Pink Sweater” set on my holiday wish list — I love how these colors will work all year long. This brand is also proudly 7-free, which means it doesn’t contain harmful chemicals that most polishes do.

Every product from The Lip Bar is vegan and cruelty-free. And they do so much more than just lipstick — check out all of their face and eye makeup as well!

“I use The Lip Bar’s matte liquid lipsticks often and the formula is truly incredible. It hardly budges at all throughout the day, the pigment is bomb, AND it doesn’t dry out my lips at all — which is really difficult to find in a matte lipstick.”

Get it from The Lip Bar for $13 (available in 18 shades) or Target for $12.99 (available in 12 shades).

My mom likes to say she’s been “doing puzzles since before it was a quarantine trend,” so it was only fitting I sent her this stunning puzzle. It’s 500 pieces, so it’s not *too* hard for a newbie puzzler, but challenging enough for someone who likes to do them often. Each piece is eco-friendly, as everything the puzzle is made of is recycled or biodegradable. I love Lemonade Puzzles for all the reasons I just mentioned, but also because it’s a woman-owned business that also highlights female artists.

I have this calendar stowed away as a Christmas gift for a fellow Disney-fanatic and I’m super excited about it. The illustrations are absolutely stunning and so intricate. It’s a great little calendar for a cubicle or home office — I would know, I’ve been using one for the last year! Brandi Monard is the lovely owner of this shop, which also creates wonderful art prints, apparel, patches, and stickers. I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know her in recent years and can honestly attest to how hard of a worker she is — and how wonderful her products are!

How special is this!? I have other hats from this woman-owned shop and have never been disappointed — the embroidery is done so carefully and beautifully. You’ll need to send the Claire, the shop owner, a photo of your pet, then she’ll hand draw it (amazing) and embroider it onto the hat. I can’t think of a better way to pay tribute to your furry friend *and* to support a small business.

This small biz is run out of Brighton in the UK and ships via royal mail. They suggest anyone in the U.S. opt for International tracking in order to *ideally* receive the product between 5–7 days.

This shop is Black woman-owned and the founder, Andrea, spent two years developing the perfect scent formula (so ya’ know it’s gonna be good). Each candle is also slow and clean-burning (no soot!) and biodegradable.

Promising review: “LOVE this combination of scents! Probably my favorite yet from the shop! In addition to being festive to display in the cute camp mug, it will also be a solid holiday mug after the candle is finished! These will make fantastic holiday gifts as well!” —Sarah

Noap stands for “nurture our amazing planet,” so you can count on this small business for eco-friendly products for your hair, face, and body.

You can have the letters embedded in the chain or dangling to make sure it’s suited to your loved one’s preference. I have one of these necklaces with my initials and it has held up beautifully. I get tons of compliments and chances are your loved one will, too. This shop is woman-owned and run out of Sand Diego, California. The owner and designer, Sarah Tullgren was originally inspired by a box full of her grandmother’s jewlery — so sweet.

I have the Marlboro County shade from this woman-owned small business and it is *so* pigmented it looks like it’s a gel mani. If hot pink isn’t your pal’s thing, choose from any of the other fabulous colors they’ve created.

I have one of these keychains and can attest to how beautiful they are IRL! It shimmers in the sun and makes it a lot easier to find my keys in an oversized tote.

I have two candles from this small shop and just felt right at home as soon as I took a sniff. I love the packaging on all of their items — so whimsical and fun, as all Disney products should be.

From egg sandwiches to the classiest homemade French cuisine, they won’t be able to put it down.

Luv Scrub is an incredible Black woman-owned business with product inspired by a traditional West African morning routine. I’ve personally met the owner, Caroline, and she is an actual ray of sunshine. In addition to being a fan of hers, I’m a big fan of this product — I personally love using it in the tub to exfoliate my legs. The best part about it? It lasts for up to 18 months! No more loofahs for you.

It was *so* hard to choose just one notebook from this shop! It’s a Black-owned business filled with adorable Afrocentric paper goods and gifts. I’d also recommend the the file folder set and their keychains — so pretty.

This Black-owned Etsy shop sells darling bracelets you’ll probably want to buy 10 of because everyone appreciates a well-curated stack! I love that Danielle (the owner) gives you the option to order custom bracelets with your own Disney sayings on them. Feel free to get some inspiration from her Instagram page.

I’ve already burned through my “Always Social Distancing” candle from this lovely woman-owned shop, so it’s probably time I order another!

Grace Eleyae is a Black woman-owned small business and was also chosen as one of Oprah’s Favorite Things!

Park Candy is a Black-owned business by Carise Pernell and her partner Steve Fox. Carise creates the majority of the designs while Steve “dreams up” products. I love how unique and creative their items are and, honestly, I find myself smiling just scrolling through their site. This mask is poly sublimated on the front, has a microfiber lining on the back, a pocket for a filter, adjustable elastic ear loops, and a flexible metal nose grip.
