Gift Ideas for Children

The creator of this online retail shop knows how to pack a punch with their bags. Their bookbag bundles feature animal friends such as Bella the Bunny and Ozzy the Own. Although these bags were designed with toddlers in mind, don’t let that stop you from gifting this backpack to any kid at heart. 

We personally got the chance to purchase the Leo the Lion backpack from on opening day. We gifted Leo to an 8-year-old girl that loves cute stuffed animals, especially “kitty cats”. This gift wasn’t for a holiday or any special occasion, but it definitely felt like Christmas! There was a lot to unpack from the “surprise egg” style Leo the Lion animal backpack. The third grader exclaimed several times how “cool” the unboxing experience was. Having so many gifts made it easy to share the surprises among siblings and cousins. This gifting opportunity and choice was such a hit for the entire family. This is why we bookmarked this business on to keep an eye out for the Black Friday or next holiday sale! We just have to snag Eli the Elephant and Penelope The Pig too; those backpacks are just too cute! is based in sunny Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Per their website, they hope to deliver more surprises that you will enjoy for years to come!

Outside of preserving our beauty, health and fitness are becoming more of a top priority for today’s women. This is why this women-owned business, Boujee Hippie created a health and beauty brand to empower melanated women to be a little selfish with their care. 

We recently reviewed, the now sold-out, Bawdy Sweat Band in Pink by Boujee Hippie. Our assessment after several uses and washes is that this compression sweatband is well constructed and worked as claimed. Although we have yet to test any other products from this black-owned brand, we have high hopes for this brand’s success. We are seeing indications through traffic trends that there is lots of interest in the orange, blue, and black two-piece Razor Workout Set and their Ignite Fat Burner products.
