Favorite Finds: Unique Gifts for Latinas August 23 2012
If you're anything like me, any time you head out to a mall or department store looking for things for yourself you inevitably end up in the kids section or kids stores looking for cute things for your little ones. It's one of the reasons why I like shopping online, and why I looooove Pinterest, because its a visual reminder of all the things I've liked and bookmarked across the web. At least it's let this hot mess of an online shopper and browser get some order in her life. I thought I'd do a little round-up of a few of the things I've been eyeing lately that are awesome unique gifts for Latinas, and our honorary Latina comadres too. Or really, anyone with fab Spanglish style.
Virgen de Guadalupe & Frida Nail Decals
So I've been eyeing these nail decals on Etsy for a few weeks now and I pinned them to my Things for Mama board on Pinterest. I've tried the Sally Hansen nail decals before and I loved them. So easy, just like taping nail polish on. And at least for me, it lasts longer than regular nail polish. But when I saw these, totally custom-made for a Latina, I was like GOTTA HAVE! I mean, La Virgen de Guadalupe and Frida Kahlo -- they are like the mother and madrina of all Latinas. And they also have Dia de los Muertos and Morrissey decals! I haven't bought yet but am thinking of getting some for me and my mom. I also think these would also make awesome regalitos for bridesmaids. So fun!
Frida Kahlo & Amor Necklaces
I just bought the cutest floral headband for my little girl (shown in this pic) and I looooove how this Frida necklace beautifully captures one of the signatures of Frida Kahlo, her floral headbands. This would be an awesome Christmas gift to myself :)
And well, this Amor necklace is just beautiful. I've been eyeing it for months now. I can totally see myself wearing it every day, since I tend to lean more toward simple, classic jewelry.
La Chingona Fine Art Print
Finally, this print is just awesome! The line is inspired by a poem - read it here. I would love to hang it up in my office as a reminder to myself to be a strong woman every single day. No, not just strong, to be chingona.
