mitushop.com

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.

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.

Wear Your Zodiac Sign On Your Sleeve With These Fetch Pins

The biggest challenge facing us in the twenty-first century is figuring out how to increase our accessory game. But, one of the best things about exploring the ins and outs of your zodiac is figuring out just how you can accessorize to match your celestial self. So, without further ado, we’ve put together a list of pins that’ll best match your star sign.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Instagram / @brunellavatri

If anyone had to describe you, Aries, they’d use words like creative, fiery, independent, and stylish. Note: stylish was probably the most important word in that sentence. For you, Aries, keeping up with the latest trends is paramount. That being said, you know that style is also about personal expression, so if you’re going to wear anything, it’s got to reflect who you are, too.

CREDIT: mitú

That’s why the perfect pin for you is the Not Your Mamacita pin. You like to show everyone’s who’s boss, and what better way to do that than to proudly wear your independence? Granted, there’s a reason people call them “statement” pieces – and you’d know how to make this statement work for you!

Shop the Not Your Mamacita pin here. 

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Instagram / @sheilaruiz.makeup

Being a well-rounded human, Taurus, your sense of fashion tends to come from your desire to make practical choices. You know that if you’re going to put together an outfit, it’s got to first and foremost be comfortable AF. From there, the sky’s the limit on what you wear!

mitú Shop / Selena Pin Pack

Pins are a great way for you to accessorize without compromising your practical fashion choices, Taurus. In fact, that’s why the Selena pin pack would work best for you. You know that you can switch up your look with whatever you feel like on the day – whether that be wearing one, two or three pins at once.

Shop our Selena pin pack here.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Instagram / @claudiadouge

As the sign of the twin, Gemini, it can be hard for you to really get fashion. It’s not because you don’t understand it, per se. No, it’s because you’ve got this awful habit of putting together a killer outfit, and then immediately changing your mind. It’s hard to decide on something that like when you feel like you’re of two minds, most of the time!

mitú Shop / Best Flans Pin Pack

This is why the Best Flans pin pack is your jam, Gemini. Not so that you can share one pin with your bestie – but, rather, change up your look to match your mood.

Shop our Best Flans pink pack here.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Instagram / @mariatzumba

We all know you for being a real romantic at heart, Cancer. You wear your emotions on your sleeve, and that’s not necessarily a bad thing! As far as you’re concerned, the best bonds between people are those that are made by following your heart.

mitú Shop / Cupid Guacardo

And on that note, the Cupid Guacardo pin is perfect for you. It’s the kind of pin that’ll let you actually wear a heart on your sleeve! Plus, you can share your deep love for guacamole.

Shop our Cupid Guacardo pin here.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Instagram / @uaefranco

Leo, your fashion choices aren’t made to accommodate trends. Rather, you are the trendsetter. You love wearing things that’ll attract attention and stir up conversation. Otherwise, why would you bother wearing it?

Mitú Shop / Hair Full of Chisme Pin

The Hair Full of Chisme pin is exactly the type of pin that’s up your alley, Leo. It’s all about your big, gorgeous hair. And, it’ll also help you find all the real Mean Girls fans at the party. Because let’s face it: there’s nothing better than making friends over iconic quotes.

Shop our Hair Full Of Chisme Pin here.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Instagram / @andiicrown

If there’s anything everyone knows you for, Virgo, it’s your capacity to work hard. And be punctual. It’s not entirely clear whether you prioritize working hard first, or being punctual. Heaven forbid the day that you have to choose between the two. To be honest, you don’t have time to pay attention to fashion.

mitú Shop / Chisme Time Pin

And so the Chisme Time pin is definitely something you need in your life – especially since we all know that if there’s anyone who would schedule their chisme time, it’s you. That being said, you know that chisme is one of the hardest things to put on your schedule. Why? Because chisme time is all the time.

Shop our Chisme Time pin here.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Instagram / @xo.lexibaby_smg

Libra, you tend to have a lot going on in your life. And really, that’s what makes you such an interesting person – you tend to be where the vibes are at. That being said, it can also place a bit of a strain on you, your wardrobe, and your funds.

mitú Shop / Broke AF Pin

That’s why the Broke AF pin was made for you. Next time you’re struggling to say no to a party, or explain why even though you really wanna go all-out on your next date you really can’t, you can just whip out this pin. Or, keep it on you at all times. In short Libra, you really, really, need this pin.

Shop our Broke AF pin here.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Instagram / @ribana_vizireanu

You’re the type of star sign to step on someone’s ego just to take them down a notch. And, we applaud you for it. After all, there’s nothing more satisfying than seeing some moron on a power trip eat their words. More often than not, you like to wear black to show that you mean business.

mitú Shop / R.I.P Machismo Pin

The R.I.P Machismo pin was pretty much designed with you in mind, Scorpio. At least it shows that you don’t suffer any fools. And woe betide anyone that doesn’t heed that warning!

Shop our RIP Machismo pin here.

Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21)

Instagram / @reesanicc

Sagittarius, you’re here for a good time, not a long time. Although if you can, you’d like to try and live for as long as possible, since you’ve got a pretty big bucket list! The most important thing for you is that you do things that make you happy – and that includes your fashion choices.

mitú Shop / I Heart Tequila Pin Pack

Naturally, there’s no pin better for you than the I Heart Tequila pin pack. More often than not, your heart gets broken time and again by the hours you’ve invested in ingesting tequila, without getting much in return beyond a sick belly. But does that stop you going back to it? No, no it does not, Sagittarius.

Shop our I Heart Tequila pin pack here.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 20)

Instagram / @alizz.wild.flower

Your self worth is built on your achievements, Capricorn. You want to feel like you’ve gotten somewhere in life, and that means that you don’t normally waste too much time thinking about the ins and outs of fashion. That is, beyond considering what’s event-appropriate.

mitú Shop / Educated Latina Cap Pin

That’s why the Educated Latina Cap pin is a perfect fit for you, Capricorn. It shows off your smarts and your heritage, while also being a conversation starter. You wear your hard work as a badge of honor, and to be honest, that’s pretty much captured in this pin.

Shop our Educated Latina Cap pin here.

Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)

Instagram / @anythingforlatinas

Aquarius, you like your fashion choices to say something. After all, if you can take the opportunity to educate someone else about the world, why waste it? This sometimes manifests in some strange ways – from banging on about sustainable fashion to arguing against leathers and furs.

mitú Shop / Thicc Thighs Save Lives Pin

The Thicc Thighs Save Lives pin is the conversation-starter you need, Aquarius. How else can you direct the conversation towards rejecting fat-shaming and rethinking the way the fashion industry treats people of different sizes? Plus, you can’t resist a little word-play, either.

Shop our Thicc Thighs Saves Lives pin here.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Instagram / @_makeupbytflawless

Of all the star signs, Pisces, you really like to get in touch with your more mystical side. This can sometimes manifest in the things to wear, especially since you know that it’s inevitable that we’re influenced by the other side, in one way or another. What you wear might put you in touch with that, you know?

mitú Shop / Crystals Pin

That’s why the Crystals pin is definitely a Pisces type of pin. And if anyone asks about why you liked that pin, you can always say you just felt some good vibes coming from it.

Shop our Crystals pin here.
