11 Gift Ideas To Give Your BFF This Christmas Featuring All Latino-Inspired Presents

mitú

Your best friend is literally the best. Like, the greatest of all your other friends. So giving them a gift that’ll make them go ‘meh’, is completely out of the question. After all, this isn’t just any old gift, like one for your boss or a Secret Santa exchange or even a family member. This is a present for your partner in crime. Thankfully, we could think of a few Latino-inspired gifts that are perfect for your comadre or compadre.  From hats to clever mugs, accessories, candles and more, you’ll definitely find something he or she will love this holiday season! And you’ll get rep your Latinidad while you’re at it. 

‘Annoyed in Spanish’ Dad Hat

If your friend is bilingual, then you know they can get annoyed in both English and Spanish (lucky you). We feel their pain, so we made this [Annoyed In Spanish] Dad Hat to wear on the days when we simply can’t with people. Stay strong, amigos, we feel you.

‘Pa qué highlighter’ Makeup bag

This little gift set would be a lifesaver for the makeup obsessed person in your life. Remind that makeup queen that she doesn’t need any highlighter with that brown shine of hers. This vegan leather bag is perfect for holding all her day-to-day essentials. Take this with you and SHINE!

Apt. 512 keychain

Ideal for that Selena fan in your life. Or maybe send it as a hint to that special ‘chico del apartamento 512’ who has the key to your heart. 

‘Mejor Sola’ Necklace 

For that queen who maybe has just gone through a breakup, or who just doesn’t settle for anyone she’s not 100 percent sure about. Remind her that ‘mejor sola que mal acompañada’ and empower her to live her best life with this little sumthin. 

‘Y la dieta?’ hat 

For the fit friend who always keeps track of everyone else’s calorie count. Gift her this hat so she can remind everyone to keep on with la dieta without saying anything. 

‘Fierce Graduate’ pin

For that recent grad in your life. Let her know; girl, you’re someone who knows what she wants and you’ll never stop working until you reach your goals. The “Fierce Graduate” Pin will help her show the world, she’s a force to be reckoned with.

‘Qué Cozy’ candle set

Fall is here, and winter is just upon us, so why not get cozy with some candles? As you know, Latinos don’t do basic —we’re looking at you Pumpkin Spice— so this Holiday Candle Collection comes with three Latino-inspired scents including Tamales de Dulce, Arroz con Leche, and of course, Cafecito! So grab a blanket and a lighter and enjoy!

‘That’s my Prima’ pin pack

You know your prima always has your back, so why not show her how much you love and support her too, with this matching pin set! So cute. 

‘Tragos’ party game

Made with pure Latino pride, Tragos is the drinking card game that your abuela will not approve of. Perfect for the friend who loves hosting fiestas at his place. Each box holds 110 ridiculously true Latino reference cards, designed with unique game rules to get the fiesta started. 

Play with different card categories like: Vote — Tostones or maduro? Losers take 2 sips. Jinx — Pick a person in the room. On 3, both of you call out the best Latino dessert. If you have different answers, drink. Most Likely To —On 3, everyone points at the person you think watches the most telenovelas. Pick Two—Pick two types of Latino cuisine. Everyone votes on which one is better. Losing team drinks. And then ask them to invite you to the drinking party. 

‘El Jefe’ hat

Sorry, this hat is for boss Latinos only*. If you are not one, please hit the back button on your browser immediately. But if you or one of your friends is the perfect guy for this hat, go ahead and add to your cart because there’s no better gift for that carne asada king. 

‘Fierce’ sticker set

If your BFF is one of those stationery lovers, then this sticker pack is for her. Featuring our fave poderosa phrases, she’ll be able to stick little reminders of her greatness anywhere she wants. The perfect gift to stick it to the patriarchy where it counts —literally and figuratively.

FIERCE Galentine’s Gift Guide: Gifts To Get Your Best Friend

If I ruled the world, Galentine’s Day would be celebrated at least once a month because the women in our lives deserve to be wined and dined. For now, we have to limit ourselves to only celebrating once a year but that just means we need to go all out and let our favorite ladies know how much we appreciate them.

Below are a few gift ideas that will make your friend feel very loved.

For your glamorous friend, the FIERCE Latina Hair Pin Set.

There are dozens of sparkly, pearly hairpin sets but none that really speak to us. These beautiful pins display you bestie’s Latinidad and hustle with pride and in glitzy style. Anyone who opens this beautiful box is sure to say “awww, I love it!”

For that friend who thinks like a congresswoman.

With this, your best homegirl will walk into the office, out into the world or even at home and let the world know she has a Congresswoman type of attitude. These Congresswoman hoops are 14 karat gold plated brass and nickel and cadmium free — perfect for those of us with sensitive skin. They are delivered in this beautiful box and ready for gifting…or to keep for yourself.

For that friend who deserves a little self-care.

Your best friend works hard and she deserves self-care. Self-care doesn’t always need to be a full production with face masks and manicures, you’d be surprised how far a bath can go. These bath bombs will teleport your friend to a five-star spa and overwhelm her with a sense of calmness.

For that poderosa friend.

Most of us grew up with the ID bracelets that were given to us with so much love by our family members. Now you can add another powerful bracelet to your best friend’s collection. This one has the word Poderosa scribed on the plate to remind her she can do anything. The bracelet is 14 karat gold plated brass and nickel and cadmium free — perfect for those of us with sensitive skin. It is delivered in this beautiful box and ready for gifting…or to keep for yourself.

For the friend who needs a few words of affirmation.

Sometimes a girl needs a few reminders to let her know a mansplainer isn’t going to stop her. This $12.99 FIERCE Sticker Pack will make your amiga’s notebook, water bottle and laptop look like, super cute while also whispering sweet messages of empowerment. 

For the friend who is recently single.

Mom used to tell us “Mejor sola que mal acompañada” and sometimes we need a reminder that we are better off alone than in bad company. Your friend may need this reminder who is going through a recent breakup. This necklace will give her the reassurance she needs to let go of baggage and move on with her head high. This necklace is a double-stacked necklace. You get a separate cubic zirconia pendant perfectly paired with a Mejor Sola necklace and each chain is a different design. Both are 14 karat gold plated brass and nickel and cadmium free — perfect for those of us with sensitive skin. Both necklaces are packaged in this beautiful box and ready for gifting…or to keep for yourself. 

For that friend who is more like a supershero.

Latinas grind harder. Latinas don’t give up. Latinas get shit done. Being Latina is our superpower. Let your girlfriend know you basically think she’s a superhero with this adorable pin that’s only $9.99. This design is also available in a tee for $22.99. Both make great stocking stuffers.

And for that friend who is hermosa inside and out.

Hermosa is such a beautiful compliment, let your friend know you think she’s the most hermosa with these hoop earrings. These Hermosa hoops are 14 karat gold plated brass and nickel and cadmium free — perfect for those of us with sensitive skin. They are delivered in this beautiful box and ready for gifting…or to keep for yourself.
