Latinaish Gift Guide 2013 (plus mega giveaway!)


It may seem a little early to start thinking about holiday shopping, but before you know it, “Feliz Navidad” will be playing on the radio and the weather will turn cold enough to break out the mittens, (both of those things have already happened where I live, by the way!)

This year has got your back when it comes to holiday gift buying – Not only have I put together a gift guide with what I consider to be some of the best gifts for bilingual, bicultural Latinos and Latinos de corazón, but with the support of several generous companies, business owners, and public relations representatives, I have organized a mega giveaway for you guys of seven items in the gift guide!

You will have a chance to enter to win all of the following items from the guide! (YES! All of it to ONE winner!)

• A $25 gift certificate to Surropa.

• A pair of SOL REPUBLIC Jax In-Ear 1-Button Headphones (value $39.99)

• A 3-in-1 Drill 3RILL from Rockwell (value $129)

• A 1 month World Edition subscription to Little Passports (value $11.95)

• A copy of the Latin Dreamland CD from Putumayo (value $14.98)

• A set of four Maisy Mouse bilingual books (value $19.16)

Disclosure: I received some of the products in the gift guide for review purposes and for consideration in the gift guide. No other compensation was given. All links in this blog post to companies are “no follow.” As always, all opinions are my own.


  1. I would love to give the gift card for loans and/or the donation to street dogs as presents to my parents. They would really appreciate that gesture. I think I could get my three children to donate part of their allowances to help pay for their grandparents’ presents and learn how to support good causes at the same time.

  2. I LOVE the Guatemalan coffee bag purse! I also love the kids passports, the pan dulce pillows, and the libros. For kids AND adults! What a great guide!

  3. I love the little passports subscription! I actually think I might get it for some great kiddos I know :)
    I “liked” your facebook page and pinned this on Pinterest

  4. So many great items to choose from!!! I do think the Mexican dinnerware from Pier I is just beautiful. Thanks for such a helpful gift guide and a great giveaway!

  5. the frida socks are pretty cool. i also REALLY like the salvadoran folk art ornaments. very pretty!!! i already like your facebook page, so do i need to “re-like” your page for a 2nd entry?! :)

  6. mexican dinner ware… addorable!! My kiddos would have chosen Dulce de Leche but that I can get the next block store… and almost everywhere!! Vivir en Argentina tenía que tener alguna ventaja, lol!

  7. Cool items!!! Love them all. If I don’t win,feliz navidad!!! I am waiting for 97.1 radio to tune in the spirit of navidad!

  8. Wow! Awesome gifts! I think my daughter would love the Frida socks or that cute notebook and my boys would love that soccer ball! My husband would go for any power tool, of course, and I love those ornaments. Thanks for some great ideas.

  9. I love the feisbuc tee shirt, Spanish a day calendar, Guatemalan bracelet, frida kahlo socks, and did de Los muertos corkscrew. I circled on google plus (tinalynnrojas), and already liked on FB.

  10. What an awesome gift guide! I loved almost every item and some were really well priced! Good thing I havent started any Christmas shopping yet :) I dont even know where to start but since I have my 5 year old right next to me, I would have to say I would get her the pan dulce pillow. She loves to eat them with milk like her papi, my other kids would rather eat something else like me. lol.

  11. Well you may know who I am already :3 I checked the guide and Is sooo interesting I wish someone give me the Bag :/ how ever I was thinking into give my boss a couple of the ornaments from Fernando Llort :3 my mom was born in Chalatenango and we have some sort of family there that will get them for me :) I will send a pic if they come soon :) anyways I hope you count me in for the give away I also circled you on g+ :3
