Holiday shopping can take a toll on your wallet. According to the National Retail Federation, consumers are set to spend an average of $1,007.24 this year on gifts for loves ones. But, as the old adage “it’s the thought that counts” reminds us, you don’t need something flashy to impress your loved ones.
With that in mind, we scoured the internet for gifts $50 and less – all sold by Latino-owned shops – for your fam, friends, and you.
If you prefer to do your shopping IRL, drop by Remezcla’s Winter Market. On December 8 and 9, Remezcla will host a pop-up market featuring more than 15 Latino-owned shops and a few workshops. Learn more here.
