The holidays are around the corner and it’s a great time to shop & support small South Asian businesses, but we can support these businesses all year. These creative and hard to find gems make great birthday gifts, anniversary gifts, and gifts for ourselves.
Every small business feeds a family and it’s so important to keep that in mind. A lot of love and thought goes into these products making them that much more special. I have created this list of South Asian owned businesses you can support year-round!
Before I launch into this, I want to say thank you to each and every person who shops Beautycounter, Young Living, and uses my links because that supports my small business and family! You can find all my links and promo codes for discounts under SHOP WITH ME on http://www.mamajotes.com
ChaiMommas X happyHER is a sisterhood for South Asian women to elevate each other. This season’s Love + Light box is a beautiful gift for anyone! I personally bought one for myself. You will also find a satisfying Love + Light tea blend from The Chai Box that will satisfy all those chai cravings.

I have broken down the businesses by category and will share one category a week leading up to Small Business Saturday on November 28. (Some brands sell more than one category of product, but I went with what I saw the most of in their shop.)
Let’s start with apparel. Even though I love my fair share of Target, I have started to fill my closet with South Asian owned brands that stand by their quality and missions.
