As an advocate for #BrandJamaica, I would like to share a few local brands you can support this Holiday season in time for Christmas for those one of a kind gifts.

12 Jamaican Brands to Shop BEFORE Christmas


Beeny BudI came across this brand at the last MoDA Market and was hooked since then. I love the story behind the brand and how they are trying to keep the Basket Weaving technique alive in the Jamaican space and using older women who are versed in these skills. They offer a wide range of products including: Handbags, Place Mats and other trinkets that make great gifts for all ages.

 JunLyn Artz

This is a brand I recently discovered and I love the craftsmanship and creativity. She creates products from Woodwork and Epoxy Resin which are all stunning and expertly made. There are clocks, serving trays, key holders, candle holders, cutting boards and so much more!

Drift Home

Drift HomeI am quite familiar with the designer of this brand since it’s a transition from a Fashion brand to a Lifestyle brand. It is ran by a mother daughter duo and features handmade items made from drift wood. If you love that beachy + minimalistic aesthetic you will love these items as they are posh meets chill.

A Marie Art Ja

AmariejaIf you love fun colourful artistic items you will love this brand. This is great for individuals who love those special collectors items like cups, pouches and artwork. There are a line of newly released clutches that are sure to make a statement and will make great conversation starters.

Touch By V LS

Touch by VLSThis is a brand that I am quite familiar with as I’ve aquired a few of the pieces that I love. I would describe it as mixed media and ceramics and features sculptures, lighting and crockery. The brand is most know for it’s brightly coloured sea urchin structures that are great for Interior design enthusiasts. 

Coleen Haj Creation Studio

This is the new kid on the Block for us and features all things sensoratory. The brand features hand-poured candles and body care. I was intrigued by the Linen Sprays and how small they are that they would make great stocking stuffers.


Jacana CBD OilI know most people might know this brand for their selection of “herbs”, but I recently discovered they also sell CBD products. You can get CBD Oils and Relief Balms great for aches in pains made from our very own CBD Oil. The products are dubbed as ” plant-powered medicine your body has been craving”. 

K-Mena’s Kreations

K-Mena'sAnother new discovery for us which feature and really great “niche products”. If you are big on hygiene like myself you will be happy to discover Loofah Bath Soaps and Bath Bombs.

Kehs Kenitra

Keha Kenitra
“All hand-made products made with love”. This brand is the “Brandon Blackwood” of Jamaica and features brightly coloured mid size handbags in a variety of shapes. This is great for the Fashionista who likes to make a subtle yet bold statement.

Full Joy Foods

Fulljoy FoodsThis brand has taken butter to a whole new level and has elevated the taste! If you are a lover of flavour and butter, this will be the go -to brand and it makes a great gift for other butter lovers.

Gabby Glam Co


I AM Matte Collection
I AM … Matte Collection

Providing our Glam Girls with Soft and Luxurious Beauty/Bridal Looks! This brand started as service based and has grown into a full-fledged “Glampire”.  If you love a whisper of colour on your lips you will love the Selah Collection and if you are a Liquid Lip Girl, you will love the newly launched “I AM … Collection”.



Let’s talk about custom, hand-made one of a kind Jewellery pieces you will love this brand. Jewellery should not only make a statement, but should be one of a kind! There could not be a “Haute List” with out Jewellery as a gifting option.

Sustainable living is in! And this brand understands the assignment. The brand features naturally and ethically made soaps that are handmade in Jamaica with sustainable packaging that are safe for you and the environment.
This season as we are allowed to have somewhat of a normal Christmas, we encourage you to shop local  to support local Artisans and Makers to help rebuild the Creative Industries.  The Jamaican Creative Industries has been hit hard by COVID -19 and only we as consumers can re-bulid this sector.

I hope this Blog post has helped at least one person with their purchasing decisions.
