Holiday Gift Guide

Andscape’s holiday gift guide

Have your folks been naughty and nice? Here’s a list you won’t need to check twice

It’s the most wonderful time of the year: blowing money fast on everyone but yourself. 

This holiday season, instead of haphazardly hitting “add to cart” at the last minute or getting up at the crack of dawn to shop Black Friday deals, allow this curated list of gifts, many from Black-owned brands and priced at less than $200, to double as a list you won’t need to check twice.

We’ve got something for everyone, no matter if they’ve been naughty or nice.

B. Stuyvesant Blanc de Blancs

B. Stuyvesant Champagne
