With Mother’s Day coming up on Sunday, May 14, it’s important to acknowledge all the first-time moms out there. The first year of motherhood is a glorious, yet overwhelming, all-around-the-clock job. While it’s perfectly fine to get a useful gift for them and their baby, this day should be all about making them feel like Wonder Woman.

Bringing a new life into this world is no picnic, so self-care is vital for these jefas. From cozy loungewear, to handmade mugs, encourage them to take the time to wind down and feel special with these 13 gift ideas from Latina-owned businesses.

Albisa Candles

This Latina-owned candle company somehow packaged that freshly bathed baby smell into their products. Albisa Candles’ Violetas Mother’s Day Gift Set ($58) is inspired by the classic Cuban baby colognes that have that familiar scent. It includes three wild violet scented products exclusive to this set: a full-sized candle, bar of soap, and a room and linen spray. Plus, a Mother’s Day card in either English or Spanish. Not a fan of violets? No problem, because there’s also a gardenia scented gift set ($58).

Shop JZD

Emit cozy and comfy vibes only with loungewear from Shop JZD. The queer Latina-owned lifestyle brand that gained popularity in 2016 thanks to their iconic pink “Latina Power” tees, have a new Mother’s Day collection out now. Pick up an embroidered “Mamá” sweatshirt ($58), or a sleek new robe ($70).

Tata Harper Skincare

Make sure mamá’s skin stays glowing with luxury products from Tata Harper Skincare. Harper was born in Barranquilla, Colombia, and grew up with a skincare-loving abuelita. This inspired her to launch a brand that creates safe and natural products to keep everyone’s skin healthy. Special Mother’s Day bundles include the Superkind Glow Getter ($130), which comes with a Refining Cleanser and a Radiance Mask. The two-step system makes it convenient for new moms with little time for extensive routines.


Hydration is key, and whether it be for water, iced coffee, or smoothies, why not quench your thirst with a cute new cup? Falibelles is a Mexican-owned small business that sells personalized tumblers. Starting at $15, you can choose a 16oz cup with a bamboo lid and glass straw from their online shop, or send them a message on Instagram for a custom design inquiry.

Origin Mexico

Texas-based lifestyle brand Origin Mexico released a special jewelry collection in honor of Mother’s Day. The brand’s founder, Yazmin Castañeda, collaborates with Mexican artisans in hopes of preserving the traditions of their country. These handmade and hand-painted adornments were created in Mexico using traditional Talavera from Puebla. The Mamá necklace comes in two styles — the Gloria and the Claudia — (each $55) and the ceramic charm is on a 14K gold plated chain. Mix and match different Talavera earrings to go with the necklace, like their Cielo Talavera Stud Earrings ($25) or the Valeria Hoop Earrings ($75). 


Add to mamá’s everyday necklace stack with a piece from IYKYK. The jewelry brand was started by Guadalajara-natives Laura and Temoc, and each piece is handmade in Los Angeles. A necklace with the new addition’s first initial would be a sweet gift! Their Signature Small Pearl Initial Necklace ($128) features freshwater pearls, 18K gold plated beads, and a letter charm in an Old English font. There are also similar styles available in blue and pink.
