The Best Gifts for Latinos by Latinos

Sure, that perfume set you’re thinking of getting your best friend or that cashmere sweater for your mom is nice, but will they truly treasure it six months, a year, five years from now? Will you change a Latina’s life by buying it? Probably not. But it’s not too late to get something truly special and help Latinas at the same time, by shopping for stuff made by Latinas for Latinas, whether it’s a handmade bag from a Peruvian family of master weavers, pressed-flower notecards that help mujeres earn a living wage or a necklace from an up-and-coming Latina jewelry maker, these gifts are memorable and they help out an hermana in the U.S. and Latin America.
