25 Gifts for Your Latino Dad That Might Make Him Cry

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 3: *sobbing*/*laughing*

Made for proud Mexican fathers everywhere.

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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

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.

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.

These Are The Baby Shower Gifts You Should Include In Your Registry

Unless you’re filthy rich, you probably know that being alive in the United States is going to cost you a pretty penny. You also know that getting married and having kids is expensive, which is why a lot of people are choosing to skip out on these traditional customs. How can we afford to do all these things we’re told to do if we still have college debt and live at home? It’s nearly impossible. Unless you get help. That’s what is so wonderful about raising money via crowdsourcing and having registries because it does truly take a village to help you settle into adulthood and parenthood.

One thing you can never do is leave your baby alone for a second. Not on the bed and not on the couch. This ultra-sweet sleeping area is called Dockatot Deluxe+ Dock and while it’s a little pricey (closer to $200), it’s very useful, portable, and comfortable. 

Graco Pack ‘n Play Playard with Twins Bassinet

Twins are all the rage these days, but how can you manage both and your sanity? This crib takes care of them both! It comes with removable bassinets and they claim “is perfect for napping, making it easy to transition to a portable playpen” and comes with a quilted mattress pad which creates a comfortable nap space. It costs about $200 on Amazon, but it’s basically a two for one.

Ergobaby Carrier, 360 All Carry Positions Baby Carrier

Credit: Amazon

This baby carrier ($124) comes highly recommended because it’s so flexible and is made perfectly for those wiggly baby bodies. Here’s how one reviewer described it: “We bought this carrier for two big reasons. 1: I detest lugging around a car seat or maneuvering a stroller in public. 2: My husband and I are a tad paranoid about child-snatchers. When I bought it I figured I would be the one using it the most, but it ended up being my husband that primarily wears it (he thinks I’m too clumsy and is afraid I’ll trip and fall while wearing her) and he really likes it. From the times that I have used it, I can say it was definitely worth buying and I would buy it again in a heartbeat.”

Pampers Swaddlers

There’s probably nothing you will need more than diapers. While you may want to go for the organic route, or for those super ambitious parents, the cloth route (good luck), you cannot go wrong with Pampers.

The main product that will cost you a ton of money is the stroller. You will have lots of cheaper options, but you want to go with a stroller that can be used in various ways and that can also grow along with your baby. But who will fork over almost $1000 for this ride? Your group of friends. Several of them can chip in for this much-needed gift. 

Lotus Everywhere Travel Crib

One thing we love to do is travel. But a baby on hand can make that really difficult. Thanks to the Lotus Everywhere Travel Crib we can finally have some peace of mind that our baby will be comfortable and we won’t have to be lugging around a pack n’ play. It’s also fairly inexpensive, just $200

Skip Hop Duo Signature Diaper Bag

Driving a minivan screams “I’m a parent!” so does the kind of diaper bag you stroll around with. This super cute Skip Hop Duo Signature Diaper Bag ($50 at Target) looks just like a backpack but it fits so much more. It’s also a perfect accessory to your stroller, which hangs on the handle. 

Philips Avent 3pk Natural Baby Bottle 4oz

My mom always said, “when a baby is drinking from a bottle, you must be sure they’re not swallowing air.” Those kinds of retro bottles are thankfully a thing of the past. These new baby bottles are perfect at making sure your baby is only drinking fluids and also super easy for them to grasp on to. 

Now that you know the presents you want, it’s time to choose a registry! Thankfully there are lots of options including Amazon, Target, Walmart and more
