We Found The Perfect Gifts For Your Selena-Obsessed Friends And Created A Gift Guide
Congratulations! If you’re reading this, it means you keep very good company. Whether you know all about Selena or just need a little guidance from a trusted source, we’ve got all the necessary items to be a Selena fan club member in good standing. Before Selena’s untimely death, she paved the way for women to take the stage in Tejano music. During a time when Cosmopolitan was telling women with curves how to properly hide those curves, Selena, somehow, remained mentally unscathed and showed us all how to properly show off our Latina curves, and keep eating pizza. While nothing can bring her contagious smile and unforgettable voice back, we can be reminded of her empowered, easy-going spirit when we notice a pin on our backpack or pick up our keys and see an Apartamento 512 keychain.
If you don’t understand what feeding your friend’s obsession is all about, trust that it’s pure female empowerment.
Apt. 512 Keychain
Be warned, if there is anything less than platonic about your ‘friendship’ with this Selena-obsessed person, this keychain may be taken as a hint that you want something more. Otherwise, compas, your friend will scream to carry this around on her keychain. If you know, you know.
Chico in Apt 512 Tee
Oh, so you know what you’re doing and trying to make that Selena-obsessed friend your Selena-obsessed novio or novia? The key is to wear this Chico in Apt 512 Tee under a hoodie, and as your “friend” is opening the keychain gift, unzip that hoodie and reveal yourself. You’re the dreamy guy next door.
Selena Pin Pack
Pins are one of the most popular gifts because there are no sizes and one little pin can tell you a lot about a person. These three exclusive pin designs include Selena’s iconic red Porsche, “El Busti-Caca”, and “I Could Fall In Love With You” Pizza. If you don’t get it, trust that they will.
The Life of Selena Lil Libros Book
As we all trailblaze into a new decade, and a new year, some self-empowerment may be on your friend’s mind. If that sounds like your friend, then what better way to empower that self-reflection than from the mind’s eye of the Selena? Buying someone a journal almost always feels passive-aggressive, but only tears of laughter can be produced by this gift.
Bidi Bidi Guau Guau Dog Bandana
If your friend is obsessed with Selena, she’s probably also obsessed with her dog. This makes the perfect two-for-one package present to show your friend you care about her dog’s solid fashion sense, and that they properly rep family values. Plus, it’s on sale right now!
Selena Plush & Bib Bundle
If your friend has become a new mom, this handmade gift, and it’s backstory, will have her weeping with joy. When Erika first got pregnant, she started making baby shoes for her soon-to-be newborn. By the time she gave birth to her third child, this hobby became a full-out passion project and company, now called Luna Impressions. Your new mama will appreciate that this gift is 100 percent handmade by a Latina mom who became a businesswoman while her children were still in diapers.
Bidi Bidi Baby Onesie
If a Bidi Bidi baby doesn’t tell you they’re a Bidi Bidi baby, are they even a Bidi Bidi baby? Complete the gift set with the most adorable baby onesie there ever lived, available in baby pink, white, and black as well.
Bidi Bidi Busti Youth Tee
When her baby is a full-grown child, we’ve still got the merch she’ll need. Growing up in a Selena-obsessed household is contagious. Before Selena, Tejanas were rare or ignored in Tejano music. After a childhood of rewatching the stunning Selena belt “Como La Flor” from Houston’s Astrodome, she’s going to want to do the very same. Make that kid’s dreams come true.
Bidi Bidi Guac Guac Plushie
The ultimate mitú x Selena gift is perfect for the friend who may also have an obsession with Guarcado or avocados in general. Guarcado is donning Selena’s iconic sparkling purple jumpsuit and even has a convenient keychain attachment, so your friend can hold onto it forever!
