mitú’s Cyber Monday Deals Are So Good, Even The Most Codo Will Want In On It

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.

Glam someone up with this hairpin set that only looks expensive.

We’ve seen plenty of hairpins hit the market but not many that speak to us. In this set you get two rhinestone pins and two others that say Latina and Jefa. They come conveniently packaged in this cute box so your chances of losing them are slim. 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.

Best friend jewelry is making a comeback. Let your bestie know that you’ll be gossiping and chatting it up until 3 a.m. until you’re 97 years old with this Chismosas For Life bracelet. 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. Tip: It’s even cuter if you both wear a matching set.

It’s Time For The US To Adopt Indigenous Peoples’ Day In Place Of Columbus Day

It’s Time For The US To Adopt Indigenous Peoples’ Day In Place Of Columbus Day

Today is INdigenous People’s Day. While some people still try to celebrate Christopher Columbus Day, many cities across the country have replace the day with Indigenous People’s Day to honor and respect the indigenous people of this land. It is also a way to set the record straight and tell the true history of Christopher Columbus’ legacy.

Indigenous People’s Day is slowly replacing Christopher Columbus Day, as it should tbh.

For years, we have all been told about how Christopher Columbus “sailed the ocean blue” to discover America in 1492. Teachers told us that he came to the New World and helped to develop it into a place where Europeans could colonize and better the land. However, that is not the way that Native American descendants remember that violent moment in history.

The reclaimed holiday is shining a light on the resilience and plight in native communities.

The Native American communities faced untold horror and devastation when the Europeans began arriving. The French, English, and Spanish participated in decimating the Native communities through disease and war to take land that belonged to the various tribes.

“Well, if we’re truly wanted to celebrate the progress that we’ve made in this country, then Indigenous Peoples’ Day is completely fitting because we were meant to be completely either killed off or assimilated into mainstream society, and we’re still here,” Rep. Deb Haaland told Full Frontal with Samantha Bee.

Indigenous Peoples’ Day gives Americans a chance to learn the true history of this nation.

Native communities have known for centuries how brutal Columbus was to the First Nations people in the U.S. The colonizer used smallpox and a slew of other diseases to kill off Native Americans to take the land. It is brutal history that has long been buried and sugar-coated for school children, much like slavery in history textbooks. It is a disservice to the American people and the resilient Native American communities to continue to ignore the true brutal magnitude of Columbus.

Several states are replacing Columbus Day with holidays honoring the indigenous communities of the U.S.

Alaska, Hawaii, Maine, New Mexico, Oregon, South Dakota, Vermont, Iowa, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, North Carolina, Virginia, Wisconsin, and Washington D.C. all observe a holiday for indigenous people instead of Columbus. Alabama and Oklahoma recognize both holidays.

Recognizing Indigenous Peoples’ Day is a minimal and impactful way to honor indigenous people.

It doesn’t really change anything. Instead of spending the day sleeping in and off work in honor of a colonizer, you can spend a day sleeping in and off of work in honor of indigenous people.

“Indigenous Peoples’ Day is a way to honor the people who lived and thrived on this continent before colonization,” Rep. Haaland said in a video honoring the holiday. “The celebration of this day is a long time coming. Activists, community organizers, and the indigenous community worked hard lobbying lawmakers, hosting rallies, and showing tour culture proudly wherever we go so that we could finally correct the record and recognize the real history of this country.”

I don’t know if you heard, but voting is in. In a generation when activism is practically a rite of passage, what could be cooler than leaving your mark on the world?

That means one thing: Every. Vote. Matters.

And while you may not be able to control what other people do, you can 100% encourage others to take themselves to the polls by publicly repping your love of voting.

If you’re passionate about democracy, what better way to show the world your love than through your clothes and accessories? You wouldn’t be the only one! Celebrities and change-makers are increasingly sporting vote-merch to get the word out there: voting looks good.
