Can you believe that the holidays are here? This means it’s time to rush around looking for the best gifts for our loved ones while juggling a million other tasks.
But what can we get them for this holiday season? Should we go to our nearest department store for a bland gift, or should we opt for something beautiful and unique from a Latinx entrepreneur? There’s only one right answer, and it’s going the Latinx route.
I know many feel like they’ve yet to finish swallowing the chaos of 2020, but somehow, we’ve made it through (thank goodness). Sure, this year, we are dealing with a different version of madness. With the supply chain demand crisis, inflation, and navigating through the second year of the pandemic, things remain wild. However, if there’s something we’ve shown the world, it’s how resilient and innovative the Latinx community is.
Although we know there are many niche Latinx stores out there, today, we are focusing on Latinx apparel, which can make some of the best gifts for your family and friends or even yourself.
Take a look at the potential holiday gifts from Latinx-owned clothing stores (many of who we’ve featured before and continue to love!) below and get your wallet ready — it’ll be worth it in the end.
Show people that nothing can harm you because you know the magic phrase “Sana Sana Colita de Rana” with this sweater designed by one of our favorite undocumented/Latinx-owned brands.
This Yo Soy Afro Latina shirt is everything. There’s power in letting people know how to call you.
Yo Soy Afro Latina
This unisex t-shirt is perfect for a day designated to remind people how amazing and unique our community is. We can’t let anyone forget how great we are!
Just like the shirt says, we are strong and beautiful all at the same time. And perfect to remind that young sobrinitx or primitx of their worth! This shirt is not only powerful because of its message; its power also lies in the Puerto Rican brand itself, which believes in being as sustainable as possible. How great is that?
Sometimes we need to empower other Latinas from afar, and this shirt definitely will take care of that. Let them know that they shouldn’t make themselves small in any situation y que nunca se dejen.
Brown Badass Bonita
Life is so many things, but once we take a moment, we can see how beautiful it can be – even if it’s just because of a few moments sprinkled here and there. Wearing this will only make you love life more (or at least push you towards that route if you’re not there yet.)
You can gift this to your most chingona amiga and get yourself a matching one too!
For My Homegirls
Brown bodies are ALL beautiful, and this tank top shouts to the world.
Nalgona Positivity Pride
The Afro-Latina-owned, slow fashion brand creates the most beautiful pieces for every occasion. This dress would be a showstopper at any fiesta.

We will all make our families proud this holiday and beyond!
