OMG!!! HBO’s Insecure is everything (but you already know this, if you don’t tune in). I love everything about Insecure from the complex and realistic characters, to their drama, and to crazy ass situations they find themselves in. The show is so raw and at times makes us cringe because it reflects so much that we’ve been through at work, in relationships, and if friendships. And of course, it’s awkward. There is nothing like it and we’re here for it. I’m also very much here for the black products they showcase on every episode. So in honor of my husband, who put me on to Insecure, I’ve picked out 22 Insecure inspired gifts for the guy or girl (or yourself) who loves Insecure. I can’t wait to add all of these to products we love.
First, you have to start with season one of Insecure so that you & your friends can watch at any time.
There are so many great songs with awesome vibes on Insecure. Try Plastic by Moses Sumney Insecure soundtrack.
The famous WE GOT YALL t-shirts from Issa’s job with co-workers who work with minority children but they don’t necessarily understand them.
Insecure’s Yvonne Orji wore this bomber from Kalilah Wright’s Mess in Bottle line and bought a whole lot more. Watch the video here and then get your own
#FavoriteThingsFriday 1). @messinabottle has some of the DOPEST swagg on the interwebs! I was looking for wrap gifts and there literally was something for everyone on their site. And the customer service is 👌🏾! I especially like that some of the items come inside a keepsake glass bottle! Shout out to @lenawaithe for rockin their attire at the BET awards. 2). I saw @wolfjames wearing one of these signature @mianik.co Africa necklaces, and you know I got pressed and wanted one! They come in black, rose gold, silver and gold and go with everything! 3). I was introduced to @away luggage thru @thealist.us and when I tell you, they have become my go-to travel companions! I HATE packing with a passion, but these suitcases make it bearable. AND they're rechargeable, so you can plug in your devices to get juice on the go 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾 4). This @avantgarde_home candle had hints of lemongrass and burns nicely. I can't stand a candle that smells good to the nose but when you burn it, is like 🙄. Thankfully, this leaves a rich aroma flowing thru your home 5). @littleblueberryy makes really cool jewelry with fun inscriptions that can be really dope gifts! #HelpingSmallBusinessesGrow! #iBeenThere #EachOneReachOne

. Check out the other dope designs from Mess in a Bottle.
I personally love the Nikki Manage Pillow on Issa’s couch but I really love this James Baldwin Pillow Cover . I could definitely see him on Issa’s couch.
Or even this Biggie Smalls pillow cover
I adore Issa’s natural hair, from her updos to her cornrows. The following gifts celebrate the natural hair beauty in your life.
Every watch by Springbreakwatches.com is classy and sexy. I bought this one for my husband for father’s day. I wish I bought the duo set, but I will be getting my own soon. Did I mention Springbreakwatch is black owned.
These Hate Love earrings make quite the impression
I’ve noticed that Issa Rae wears some cute bomber jackets like This bomber jacket
The characters are always paying homage to the 90’s. Check out these retro shirts.
We looked good in the 90’s, didn’t we? Well, the girls at Izzy & Liv know how to bring that style back. You’ve got to sign up for their Brown Sugar Box. It’s a subscription box that arrives at your doorstep every month and damn, they have some awesome goodies. Here’s me with my Martin shirt and other cute apparel and jewelry.
The shirt below makes me want to start singing a little D’Angelo.
Will your friend (or you) appreciate one of these shirts inspired by the show A Different World?
I’m loving this Dwayne tee. I can definitely see this on the cast.
