14 Spots to Shop Black-Owned Vegan Gifts Online

Summertime means birthdays, graduations, Father’s Day, and weddings, which means many are on the hunt for the perfect gift to give to their loved ones. We want to make the process a little easier, which is why we’ve compiled a list of Black-owned shops that offer vegan and vegan-friendly gifts. From vintage clothing to candles and imported teas, you are sure to find the perfect present after browsing these online retailers (many of them have a physical storefront, too!).

Read on to find out which Black-owned shops we recommend, and maybe even order a little something for yourself as well!

MILES Culture

Ships Nationwide

Shopping for a fahionista/o? MILES Culture is your one-stop shop as they offer vintage clothing, hoodies, crewnecks, accessories, and handbags. Ty Holloway, designer and owner, chose the name of his shop in part to pay homage to his mother, Martina, whose maiden name is Miles, and also to reflect the durability of his streetwear fashions as they will last for miles. ‘90s kids will adore the Vintage Puffed Track Jacket, which comes in a blend of bright teal, blue, and hot pink colors. The signature tees and hoodies also make excellent gifts and come printed with original photos that the MILES team screenprints in Ty’s native Philly. Each graphic represents moving subjects, such as horses, automobiles, and an adorable pitbull named Pete.

Love Cork Screw

Ships Nationwide

Your special someone will be feelin’ fine with the wines from Love Cork Screw (LCS). The Chicago-based winery was created by Chrishon Lampley, the owner, négociant, and wine enthusiast. The company uses grapes supplied by small farmers, then produces, bottles, and labels the wine under the LCS name. Best of all, the wines are vegan! The Gift Set comes with 2 wines of your choice (choose from Pinot Grigio, Sweet Riesling, White Table Wine, Red Table Wine, and Rosé), a candle, and a body butter, making this the perfect package to send to your BFF on their birthday. While the company’s main focus is wine, in addition to candles and body butter, you’ll also find apparel and home goods as well.

*Please note that Love Cork Screw cannot ship to the following states: OK, RI, UT, MS, KY, DE, and AL.

Estelle Colored Glass

Ships Nationwide

We think the perfect way to accompany the gift of wine is with beautiful glassware to pour it in, and if you agree, check out the hand-blown glass collection from Estelle Colored Glasses. The online shop offers wine stemware as well as stemless glasses in a variety of unique and vibrant colors, like amethyst, emerald green, and coral peach pink. We also love this company’s backstory, in which the founder, Stephanie Summerson Hall, was inspired at an early age by her grandmother, Estelle, who had a passion for antiquing and was always adding to her colored glass collection. This marked the start of Hall’s love for the unique glassware, and became the catalyst for Hall to eventually open a shop of her own.
