Celebrating our heritage isn’t something that should be relegated to just the holidays, but the season does give us a very particular chance to express love for our cultura through gifts. And doesn’t everyone love a gift that is both cute and celebrates what makes us us? From a print that everyone will fight over to a mug that absolutely represents us, to the toys from the newest movie releases that make us feel seen, it has never been easier to give the gift of our cultura.

You don’t even need to scour the internet, as we’ve done the heavy lifting by putting together a gift guide. Below we’ve listed gifts that are a combination of fun and that celebrate being Latine. You can give  any to just about anyone in the familia, from that tía who is never happy with anything, to that primo who refuses to admit what it is he wants even as he constantly borrows your stuff.


'Blue Beetle' Blu-Ray

Xolo Maridueña’s Blue Beetle is out on Blu-Ray and there’s no better way to commemorate a movie that is a celebration of our heritage than to re-watch it with the familia. Besides, if there’s a movie that requires a re-watch, or seven, alongside generations that can help you make sense of all the Easter eggs, it’s this one. Abuelita can explain the School of the Americas reference, while your tía does Maria la del Barrio and your tío tackles El Chapulín Colorado.
