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. Here is the list of 25 gifts for Mexican dads

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

RealRebel / Etsy

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

This one goes out to all my borinquen dads out there. Imagine him not wearing this shirt in public. Latino fathers are a special breed of people.

5. “PADRE, Te Amo” Mug, $19.95

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

VAKdominotables / Etsy

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

QualityDominoes / Etsy

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

LuxandLucaJewelryCO / Etsy

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

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

CraftsmanSoapCo / Etsy

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

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.

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

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

22. Loteria Key Chain, $15

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

“H2oVibe Rain Showerhead Jet with Wireless Bluetooth Speaker – Polished Chrome” Digital Image. Amazon. 6 June 2018.

24. “Nacho Average Dad” Shirt, $16.50

TheODYSEA / Etsy

Whatever you get or don’t get your dad this Father’s Day, just make sure you tell him you love him. That’s all that it really takes to get some waterworks anyway, verdad? Try it and let us know how it goes. ???? Did you like some of these gifts for Mexican dads

Guys Talk About The Best Valentine’s Day Gifts To Give Last Minute

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, which means it’s time to cue the balloons, bouquet of red roses and pink and heart everything! The truth is, even as one of the most manufactured and cheesy holidays, Valentine’s Day can be a wonderful way to remind the person in your life that you love them.

And while it often seems like the pressure has to solely be on one partner, it’s also a time of year for us all to step up.

Fortunately, Reddit is teeming with ideas for Valentine’s Day gifts for men.

Check it out below!

“I was in college (22M). I a girl I had known since high school had a crush on me and I could tell. She was a student at the same university and we would occasionally meet our group of friends for lunch. This little gathering had gone on for several semesters and we all knew each other quite well. This girl had a really rough life and a learning disability that prevented her from reading social situations and advancing in her studies. I had been trough an incredibly difficult break up the previous semester and was looking at a lonely Valentine’s day. I am not sure if she was told by a mutual friend or if she took her own initiative but she got me a little sucker bouquet in a coffee mug for me. I have a really bad sweet tooth and am a coffee addict so this was the perfect gift. We ended up getting lunch just the two of us and had a great time. I will always remember how much fun I had.” –Brighter_Lighter

“My girlfriend made me a comic book of us and all of our adventures. Yes I cried.” –FireButchJones

“When I first started dating my now fiance, we worked together, along with her ex. When he found out we were dating he tried talking to me in the breakroom, and casually talked shit, saying shes clingy, etc. Then he said “You know, I would tell you some more stuff but im afraid you’d chirp (while making a talking hand gesture)”. He tried to act ghetto to the point where I was embarrassed for him. That became an inside joke between me and her, and I started saying stuff mockingly, like ‘Im gonna chirp up in this bitch’ and ‘Im chirping in the trap.’ Then it turned into us creating comics back and forth called “The Adventures of Chirp and Trap”. Everyday one of us would draw a comic, and the other would continue the story. Chirp was a bird who usually wore either a cowboy hat or a Rambo outfit, and Trap was a bird in a cage. I think we still have them somewhere, but one of the funniest ones was Chirp having to rescue Trap from a Dothraki horde.” –Treegs

Every year, my mom makes this cookie cake with chocolate and strawberries and it’s the best thing ever. That’s the only ‘gift’ I’ve ever gotten for Valentine’s day (so far) Edit: forgot to take a picture of the first one but luckily she made an extra mini one this year. This is the first time she’s added the white chocolate, and it’s usually in the shape of a heart, but here it is.” –Zaquarius_Alfonzo

“Not a gf, but one time my parents bought me a box of slim jims as a kid and it lasted me until May. Was great.

I’ll marry the next woman who buys me a big ass box of slim jims.” –

SleeplessShitposter

“My parents would get me valentines day presents all the time! One year was a restaurant sized tub of ketchup (since I really loved ketchup at the time). It was both useful and fun! Though we threw it out before I finished it off, because the bottom of the tub was beginning to be a bit… off.

I’ve never gotten anything for valentines day not from my parents.” –

FlameFrenzy

“A letter telling me all that she loves about me and how I treat her. It was the best. Her birthday was a couple of days after so it was very hard making her feel loved and appreciated like I felt when I gave her a shitty valentines gift.

The second best has to be nothing (different partner). Literal nothing. I bought her some of her favorite candy. But it was great because it really showed how our relationship was and I knew she wasn’t the right one for me and I wasn’t the one for her. She dumped me a couple days later. Couldn’t say I was surprised.” –cbarnes15

“one year a girl i was dating just sent me a big long message basically a letter telling me she wished she could be there with me (long distance relationship) and i was going through a rough patch and really drove home how much she cared about me and it was really beautiful, she was really good at making me feel special. i tried to do the same but i guess im just not good at it, i mailed her a letter i had written with her favorite candy but yeah the relationship eventually fell apart and i feel bad i couldn’t get across how strongly i felt about her.” –alchupanebra

“I got a steak, bourbon, a jump rope, and a bag of dorotos. I gave her a “sexy/naughty” calendar of me doing household chores wearing only an apron, a week of nightly foot rubs, I made her cinnamon rolls from scratch, and I hid 50 Ferrero Rocher around the house.” –Raininglemur

“I made a friend of mine who is a single woman a computer “game” that turned her xbox controller into a vibrator. I included all sorts of preset patterns too so that with button presses or voice commands you could change it up.” –

Aazadan

“I feel like I’m the only one who likes to give foot rubs. I think it’s a good work out for my grip strength and ladies love em. Like just ask and I’ll gladly give one. My ex didn’t like her feet touched though so I rarely gave them.” –drsquires

It was junior year and my psychology class was doing a secret Santa type thing but for Valentine’s Day since we were close. I got a girl who I was fine with giving a gift to. Drew her a nice rose, wrote something cute and gave her chocolates, not a lot. What I got from another girl was pretty impressive. I got a nice handwritten card, a jar of kisses, and a bunch of candy put into a cute bag. Now, I was antisocial af and this was completely unexpected. I was expecting her to give me like a chocolate bar or something but nah, she gave me the entire bag! Such a friendly girl, wish her the best in her college life now.

I also got a valentines gram which had chocolates sent to me anonymously but I already knew it was this one girl a grade above me that sent it. Weird cause I’m usually the one that never gets shit.” –Reddit User 

“When I was in high school from my first serious girlfriend. My first valentine’s day in a relationship. We had been dating about five months at the time.

I ask her what she wants for valentine’s day. She says she doesn’t want anything, just a dinner with me (I already had reservations). I ask her again, incredulously, “you don’t want anything, not even flowers?”

“No, I don’t want anything.”

“Are you sure? No flowers?”

“I’m sure.”

“No flowers?”

Don’t get me flowers.”

So… I don’t get her anything except chocolate and a dinner reservation. Definitely no flowers.

At the end of the day, she is upset she hasn’t gotten any flowers delivered. I tell her that I didn’t get her any, she told me not to. She cries, and tells me not to talk to her. Refuses to answer my calls. We don’t go out to dinner, and I spend valentine’s day alone.

My gift? One of the greatest lessons I have ever learned – don’t take women literally, it’s a trap.

Just buy the damn flowers.” – SadClownInIronLung

“My sophomore year of high school some girl who I really hadn’t thought much of gave me a card that read “To: Cute boy, you have a really nice smile”. We hung out a bit after that but things didn’t go to great (long story). Anyways that one valentine started a chain reaction that ended some serious depression I had and now I smile more often.” –supeguy212
