In honor of Black History Month, several retailers are shining the spotlight on Black-owned businesses in the food, beauty, and lifestyle space. But Amazon has gone one step further and dedicated an entire storefront to celebrating Black-owned businesses, including brands offering a ton of delicious new finds for your pantry, as well as clever solutions for your kitchen. In fact, the options are so unique, we think they’ll also make for great gifts for your loved ones. (Hint: Valentine’s Day is less than a week away!) From perfectly roasted coffee beans to scrumptious cake to reusable takeout containers (the coolest ones we’ve seen in a while!), there’s a lot of great options to choose from. We’ve rounded up a few of our favorites below so go ahead and add them straight to your cart.

Bring some traditional southern flavor to your foods with this relish made from a family recipe dating back to the 1930s. The set includes three options: the O.G relish, a spicy option, and a Nashville-hot level extra spicy option. The blend of vegetables and spices adds a burst of deliciousness to chicken, fish, pork, beef, and vegetables. Use it to dress up dishes like chicken salad, sushi, deviled eggs, burgers, hot dogs, bratwurst, hummus, and potato salad.

Give your morning cup of Joe a major upgrade with BLK & Bold’s perfectly roasted ground coffee. The Limu Ethiopia Single Origin is a light roast with notes of chocolate, blueberry, honey, and almond. To retain that amazing original flavor, it’s naturally processed. Even better, the certified B Corporation donates five percent of profits to support at-risk youth locally and nationwide.

Help the environment — and the flavor of your food — with this clever to-go container set that covers all the bases. Made in the United States, the six interchangeable plates lock together to make three containers, so they’re also stackable (aka space-saving), and even have a built-in cup holder for your beverages. Impressively versatile, you can use them as a salad bowl or even steam ingredients in the microwave.

You don’t have to travel to Trinidad to get a taste of their authentic hot pepper sauce. Deliciously versatile, this hot sauce adds flavor to everything from eggs to meat marinades to pizza to tacos to burgers, just to name a few. With just the right touch of smoky and sweet, its diverse flavor profile is courtesy of green papaya, lime, and chayote.

Coffee with a conscience can be yours at an accessible price. This artisanal coffee is ethically sourced through direct trade — which is even better than Fair Trade — to ensure a fair wage for their farmers. The certified B-Corp roasts in small batches at their headquarters in Oakland, California. This set includes a trio of their best-selling beans: Coltrane, Motherland, and King's Prize.

Sprinkle this all-natural ground ginger into whatever needs a little more flavor in your life. Made from 100 percent ginger, it brings that sharp and spicy taste to practically anything.

When you need a taste of summer, pop open a Me and the Bees Lemonade. The variety pack includes flavors like prickly pear, mint, and ginger and you can even serve it hot!

Eating your vegetables just got a heck of a lot easier. Ideal for kids, they’re great for cooking sweet or savory dishes like burgers, sauces, or scrambled eggs, as well as sprinkled over dishes like pizza, pasta, rice, potatoes, or sandwiches. There are three flavors: Natural’s Flavor, a blend of carrots, peas, and butternut squash; Red’s Flavor, a combo of carrots, peas, squash, and beets, which also works as a sugar substitute; and Green’s Flavor, a mix of carrots, peas, sweet potatoes, kale, and spinach.

If baking isn’t your forte, you can still experience the magic of home-baked goods thanks to Emily's Heirloom Pound Cakes. Made from scratch, this pound cake has that just right not-too-sweet flavor and moist consistency. Made using fresh blueberries and finished with a lemon glaze, you’ll want every last crumb.
