7 of the Best Women-Owned Businesses Available on Amazon


Women’s History Month is here and what better way to celebrate than to talk about women-owned businesses?! You may be surprised to learn that Amazon has a lot of brands that are owned by women. Today we are going to highlight 7 of our favorites. The brands range from self-care, home decor, accessories, and more.

Birdy Boutique

Birdy Boutique was created in 2014 by two sisters: Joanna Serra and Barbara Kent. The duo were inspired to create their business after being involved in the military. They created Birdy Boutique to provide educational toys, tapestry blankets, and weighted blankets for children and adults alike. Part of the proceeds from each purchase goes towards helping veterans with recovery.

Our favorite items from this brand, include their bright and colorful tapestries with motivational themes. The blankets are super light weight for easy hanging.

Mother’s Shea

Mother’s Shea is a family-run business from the makers of Eu’Genia Shea that specializes in making high-quality shea butter-based skincare products. Intense demand for Eu’Genia led to a push towards affordable luxury and the launch of Mother’s Shea. The company’s main mission is to empower women by providing them with educational resources to thrive on their own. Each purchase donates 15% of the profits to female workers in Ghana. With a max of five all clean moisture-packed ingredients, everything included in their products is made to delight.

It’s tough to narrow down our favorite products to just three! Below are items we’re loving right now.


HereAfter specializes in handmade crafts created using wood cutouts. The original idea began when Yvonne, the founder, wanted to keep a greeting card she received from a loved one. She thought there must be a way to preserve cards and make them something even more special to display. That’s when she got the idea to create cards using wood. After receiving positive feedback from her town, she decided to branch out into even more product offerings, including journals, keepsake boxes, and pins.

A few of our favorite items from Yvonne’s collection, can be found below.


Kasensen is the perfect shop for those who enjoy sticker collecting! They have a variety of stickers that range from different colors, objects, themes, and materials. All stickers are available in packs of at least 50 stickers and go up to as many as 200 stickers. Whether you’re looking for cute designs to decorate your laptop, water bottle, skateboard, or sticker book, Kasensen has the perfect sticker pack for you.

For Spring, we’re loving these stickers:

One Fire Store

One Fire Store specializes in portable night lights and star projectors. This women-owned business has a mission of making your home and workout space more enjoyable and inviting. Their portable night lights have 12 soothing sounds, 7 color changes, and 5 brightness levels. Their Galaxy Light Projector is often used in Yoga Studios to help set the mood for a zen session. What would you use a light projector for?


Ozaoz is an Amazon shop that features accessories and books focused on cute characters. Their most popular offering is their Kawaii Pencil Case that comes with pins. It’s the perfect size to keep your journaling supplies! They also carry backpacks, ornaments, wall decor, and jewelry.

Angela Nguyen

Angela Nguyen is an independent illustrator residing in the Bay Area. She is best known for her cute illustrations that are inspired by pop culture. She lives for the art world and believes that anyone can become an artist if they want to. This inspired her to release a series of instructional books focused on drawing, illustrating, and painting. Additionally, for those who do not wish to learn how to draw, and instead simply want to color in the characters that Nguyen has developed, they can do so with her line of kawaii coloring books.

By supporting women-owned businesses, we can help empower female entrepreneurs to continue creating and innovating. We hope you opt to support women in business, not just in March, but all year long.

Do you know other brands that should be included on this list? Please share them below!
