mitú

Father’s Day has always been, and will forever be, a big holiday in the family. While we technically show our fathers how much we love them through the year. It is nice to let them know just how much you love them on their special day. They sacrifice, work and live to make our lives as easy as possible. Here are a few things you can buy him to show him you care.

Some of them, it takes just the right gift to break them down and really receive sus abrazos y amor. Here are this year’s weapons in our evil plan: make Papa cry.

1. “Make America Mexico Again”, $14.99

Phase 1: Confusion. “Is this a MAGA hat?”

Phase 2: “Ayyyyyy, jajajjajajaja”

Phase 3: *sobbing*/*laughing*

Made for proud Mexican fathers everywhere.

2. “Sigues Siendo El Rey” Father’s Day Card, $5.00

What’s a gift without a card? Especially one that adores and glorifies your dad the way he should be como una canción icónica.

3. #1 Papi Chulo Tee, $19.99

Here’s where the tears start to flow. I don’t care what you got your dad for Father’s Day last year, a mug is the way to go.

Because they get to bring them to work, and see them every morning, eventually softening them towards you on a daily basis. I’m already crying with this mug.

6. Custom Boricua Domino Table, $375

If you’ve got the dough, here’s a sure-fire way to make your dad cry of excitement. It’s a foldable, wooden, boricua pride domino table, for Christ’s sake. You can probably order it without the Dominican flare if your father prefers to be a little more neutral.

7. FCB Futból Domino Set, $64.99

Which would be nothing without an FC Barcelona handmade domino set. This company has almost every equipo your dad could possibly be a fan of.

8. “Some People Speak Spanish” T-Shirt, $24.99

Papi is a proud man. He is proud of the work he does. He is proud of his family. But, most of all, he is proud of where he came from. Let him share his love for his native language with pride.

9. Bad Hombre Money Clip, $35

You better get your mom a ‘Nasty Woman’ pin to match, because this is dope. Plus, our dad’s are the only one’s that still carry cash. Might as well make them feel like la resistencia for it.

10. “Latino Hustle Is The Best Hustle” Sweater, $39.99

Your dad has worked hard in his life so you can live your best life. That’s what we call the hustle and no one hustles harder than Latinos.

11. Emergency Tequila, $6.83

For the tequila lover dad, this will get a good laugh, eye roll or smack. Live life on the edge and find out for yourself.

12. “El Jefe” Mug, $14.99

This is the ultimate “#1 Dad” mug on the market. Seriously. He can now walk around the house and office letting everyone know that he is the boss.

13. Upcycled Corona Glasswear, $15.00

Tell your dad that now he’s an environmentalist when you get him this set of beer bottles made beer glasses. Although, it might not have the same effect when he pours his Corona into these glasses. Vamos a ver.

14. Salud Coasters, $12.50

These are really more of a gift to your mom, but you’ll also be sparing your dad from her wrath when she sees beer rings on the coffee table. Cheers!

15. Breakfast Stout Beer Candle, $17.99

For the more sensual, beer-loving daddio, you can get him what he’ll think is a prank gift. The candle smells like beer, yes, but also maple syrup, cinnamon, waffles, and fresh-roasted coffee beans.

16. Beer Soap 6-Pack, $15.00

If you don’t want to endorse your dad’s drinking habit, give him a different kind of six pack. Who knows, maybe a beer-scented shower will just do the trick?

17. Stamped Spoon, $18.00

CREDIT: EveOfJoy / Etsy

For the sweet-tooth dad who refuses to scoop the ice cream into a bowl because he’s only going to have a couple scoops. You know who I’m talking about. Call him out with this gift.

18. The Self-Aggrandizing Tee, $21.99

I mean, you are the best, and your dad should be proud to tell the world, right? If anything, this shirt tells your dad that he succeeded as a father in teaching you self-confidence.

19. “Pregúntale a Tu Mamá” Tee, $24.99

CREDIT: mitú

Or, go for a more practical option. You know that on days your dad is wearing this shirt, you can save time by just skipping the middle man. But also, we need to hear about your dad’s reaction to getting this gift. 😂

20. Chismosa Dad Hat, $11.00

CREDIT: PrinteesPlus / Etsy

Some dads play like they don’t want to hear all the chisme, but they’re all chismosa AF. They live for the drama, and getting this hat as a gift will just put them in chismosa hot seat. You know your mom will tell all her friends about this hat.

21. “Lo logramos Papá” Tee, $24.99

CREDIT: mitú

Share all your special moments with your dad. Remember what we said about him working so hard so you have a better life? That includes all of your major achievements. They are also his achievements. Make sure he gets some of the credit.

22. Loteria Key Chain, $15

CREDIT: LizasBoutique / Etsy

Hello, does your dad perpetually lose his keys? Especially when you’re asking if you can borrow his car? Finally, a solution that he’ll never forget: loteria keychain. He won’t want to be separated from his keys after you get him this.

23. Bluetooth Shower Head, $36.95

24. “Nacho Average Dad” Shirt, $16.50

Check Out Some Of Yesika Salgado’s Best Clapbacks To Creepy Men Hitting On Her On Dating Apps

Yesika Salgado is an Los Angeles-based writer known for her poems about body positivity, love, heartbreak, and more. From time to time, the poet gives us a glimpse of her love life and posts the sometimes ridiculous (and hilarious) messages she receives on dating apps. Some men just don’t know how to approach a woman properly and it is likely because of all of these dating apps. It has suddenly become so much less personal. Here are some of her best responses of all time.

1. Nothing like a subtle invite for a threesome to spell out modern romance.

CREDIT: yesikastarr / Instagram

Legit, this LA heat is brutal. A moment in the air conditioning with some ice cold water does sound tempting. That’s what he meant, right?

2. She takes life lessons from some of the most important television shows.

CREDIT: yesikastarr / Instagram

See? Next time your mom says anything about watching too much tv, remind her that it can be educational. Detective Olivia Benson would be proud.

3. What’s sexier than your career ambitions?

CREDIT: yesikastarr / Instagram

We can only assume that that’s what he meant. It is important to have goals in life and it is nice when strangers take an interest.

4. Why not take a page out of their book and use their own lines against them?

CREDIT: yesikastarr / Instagram

Talk about a savage reality check. He didn’t even see it coming and it is gold.

5. Salgado proves that it is never a bad time to shut it down.

CREDIT: yesikastarr / Instagram

It is really important to grow with every new year. Unfortunately, some people just don’t do that and they need to be reminded.

6. Nothing like looking for friends…with benefits?

CREDIT: yesikastarr / Instagram

What do you think is an appropriate pick up line for someone who is 31?

7. Some people just left us, and Salgado, confused.

CREDIT: yesikastarr / Instagram

That’s a sentence alright. Now, what he was trying to say gets a little confusing.

8. Come correct or you might not make it out in one piece.

CREDIT: yesikastarr / Instagram

Like, who was he trying to reach? Also, why is that an opening line?

9. Emoji for Emoji. Seems fair, right?

CREDIT: yesikastarr / Instagram

Some times the shortest conversations are the most impactful conversations. That’s one way to cut it out.

10. To be fair, she does let men know what she wants.

CREDIT: yesikastarr / Instagram

Very Destiny’s Child. Pay the bills and prove you are in it for the long haul and then you get to reap all of the benefits.

11. There’s nothing better than pointing out a comical spelling error.

CREDIT: yesikastarr / Instagram

Seriously, dude. You want to talk a big, inappropriate game and you can’t even spellcheck?

12. Word matter, kids.

CREDIT: yesikastarr / Instagram

Good is fine but do you want good food or amazing food? Same goes for sex. Up your game, fellas.

13. She gets creative with her rejections and they are brilliant.

CREDIT: yesikastarr / Instagram

There’s being rejected online low and getting rejected by a ghost online low.

14. After a while, some people lose their cool because some people don’t get the hint.

CREDIT: yesikastarr / Instagram

His “Ok ty” response to her blow up is kind of hilarious. That’s one gracious way to accept a rejection.

15. Don’t brag about your anatomical skills if you don’t want to hear about other people’s skills.

CREDIT: yesikastarr / Instagram

Everyone has something they’re proud of. A properly bending elbow is something to celebrate.

16. Let’s cool it with all of the body contact during this hot af summer.

CREDIT: yesikastarr / Instagram

Seriously. It is so hot. Most of us just want to be still and try to stay cool.

17. Some messages are better left without a response.

CREDIT: yesikastarr / Instagram

Don’t even bother dignifying these kinds of comments with responses. They just aren’t worth it.

18. Thankfully a few men are concerned about other people and their well-being.

CREDIT: yesikastarr / Instagram

Like this fine gentleman. Look at him asking her if she is feeling okay.

19. She even turned that BBC acronym around and left people confused.

CREDIT: yesikastarr / Instagram

A British accent might be boring but they did invent manners. Might be something some of these men should look into.

20. And, when all else fails, summon some Harry Potter help.

Will immortality be the secret to finding a good man?
