These Latino Holiday Gifts Are Anything But Basic

Consider yourself #blessed because you, YES, you have quirky friends. Luckily for you, Christmas shopping for them is also fun because you don’t have to go on a mission and do detective work only to find out they want something super specific, like a shade of matte, semi-shimmer lipstick by some influencer brand you can’t remember.

But, those aren’t your problems. Our shop has nothing but gift solutions for your group of friends. Your biggest problem will be choosing from all the dope stuff we have. And if you can’t, have your friend pick a number between 1 through 8…and SAS! That’s their gift from this list:

Magic Ocho Ball

The Magic Ocho Ball has arrived and has all the answers to their inner-most pressing questions, like: “Are we eating sobras for dinner again?” “Is the love of my life going to show up at my door and do my laundry?” “Will my mom be chill when I get home after 10 this weekend?”…Tell your friend, don’t worry, I’ve gotchu and watch their face light up when they unwrap their own Magic Ocho Ball.

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.

Black Friday and Cyber Monday can be pretty overwhelming we admit. There are people shoving and pushing everywhere you look but what we do love about these commercial holidays is that even the most codos, we’re talking the cheapest people you know, can snag their holiday gifts at a fraction of the price. Scroll below to get all of your holiday shopping for way cheap.

All pins are on sale. If you buy three, you get one free.

If you don’t know what to get someone in your family or a coworker, let me recommend a pin, or two, or three. They’re an adorable reflection of anyone’s personality, easy to wear… and very inexpensive.

Note: This sale does not include pin packs.

Help a friend out and get them an ugly Christmas sweater to rock to your holiday party.

There’s always that procrastinator who shows up to the ugly Xmas sweater party without an ugly Xmas sweater! Who does that? Now it doesn’t have to be anyone in your circle if you help them out and cop one of our ugly Xmas sweaters that are now on sale.

Guacardo is so bougie he almost never goes on sale… until now.

Fancy things in life like Chanel, Dior and Gucci never go on sale because they’re too bougie to lower their prices. Same goes for Guacardo… until now. The sassy avocado dressed in his Remember Me outfit is lowering his price to ensure every Guacardo lover gets him as a gift.

You can now remind someone she is meant to be a congresswoman at a lower price.

If you have a sobrina, a colleague, a bestie who you know is meant for greatness, you can tell her what you think of her without breaking the bank. Inspired by one of our favorite Latina, hoop-wearing Congresswomen, these earrings will put anyone in the spirit to achieve greatness.

If poderosa is more what you use to describe that goal-driven friend, this ID bracelet would make the perfect gift, and it’s also on sale.

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.

This Cyber Monday sale also has you covered when it comes to gifts for the most important woman in your life.

Most of us never know what to give the woman who gave everything for us. This two-part necklace set is a sweet gift for the main woman in our life. This necklace is double-stacked. You get a separate cubic zirconia pendant perfectly paired with a Mami 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.

The holidays aren’t always easy for someone who is newly single. Take advantage of our Cyber Monday sale and give this special message.

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. You may need this reminder or this might be the perfect gift for a girlfriend who is going through a recent breakup. This will give her the reassurance she needs to let go of baggage and move on with her head high.

These are great for stacking or wearing individually, perfect for a regular day at work, an important meeting or a night out…or to keep for yourself.

Remember when we used to give our best friends jewelry? You can do that again with this cute ID bracelet and while keeping your piggy bank nice and full.
