Prepping for the holidays can be stressful. From finding the perfect gift to hosting friends and family, pulling everything together can seem like an enormous feat. We don’t know about you, but the biggest item to tackle on the to-do list is always how to give our homes a proper holiday refresh without going overboard and looking cheesy.
Sure, loads of red and green decor and “ho, ho, ho” pillows are the easiest route to take, but we want our space to have that holiday feeling with a chic touch that only Black folks can put on it. That’s why we’re giving you three easy DIY tips to help make your home pop for the festive season. And, as our gift to you, we also found a few dope Black-owned businesses to help you pull it off so that you can spend your dollars where they count the most and enjoy the holidays with family and friends.
Add A Splash of Color
The holidays are the perfect excuse for adding bright, festive colors to your home. Grab a few luxe pillows from Karen Jai Home, like this chic 'Karen' pillow, and add some much-needed pop to your decor.
Now that you've spruced up the decor, fill your entire home with that cozy feeling by lighting up a scented candle. Scent & Fire's Cashmere Sweater fragrance will wrap your home in cranberries, pine, and hints of vanilla, just what you need to get holiday ready.
What's the holidays without a little gift-giving? Instead of wrapping your items in the usual, boring wrapping paper, show off your holiday spirit (and your wokeness) with this paper featuring jolly ole' Black Saint Nick.
