In preparation for Cinco de Mayo I am writing a series of blogs posts with recommendations, tips and brands to follow from other amigos in our community. I hope you will give them all some love and send me some of your own favorites!
All the days might be running together during quarantine, but you can’t forget this Sunday is Mother’s Day. There is still time to order your mom a gift and support Latinx owned businesses in the process.
I have put together a list of five gifts your mom will absolutely love and will solidify your place as the favorite child for at least another year.
For the Mom Who Loves Quiet Time
Viva la Vida Frida Khalo Puzzle
Quarantine has us all doing things we never had time for before…like puzzles! Your mom will love this colorful puzzle featuring everyone’s favorite, Frida Kahlo. Support a Latina owned small business and buy it from @artelexia.
For the Mom Who Loves Cooking
Mexico the Cookbook
Not only is this cookbook pretty enough to sit out on the counter at all times….it has over 600 recipes to keep your mom busy and your belly full. #yum. Available at @felizmodern or wherever books are sold.
For the Mom Who Never Leaves Home Without Makeup
Reina Rebelde Lipstick
There has never been a better shade of red and this one is SO GOOD it has even won awards. Your mom will love the color Brava – it looks good on any skin tone. Available online or at Target.
For the Mom Who Likes to be Comfy & Cute
Concha Pantuflas Slippers
Ok, you might want to snag two pairs of these slippers; one for you and one for mom– they are that cute! Only $20 with free shipping, you can’t go wrong. Pair them up with some actual conchas and your mom will love you! Available from @mexicrate.
For the Mom Who Loves Surprises
Send your mom a personalized piñata with a message and candy inside. This is a such a sweet and nostalgic gift! It’s so cute, we bet your mom won’t want to break it open.
