Lola’s 2020 Holiday Gift Guide: 15 Ideas for Comadres Who Love Comida, Cultura, and Self-Care

With Hanukkah beginning this week and Christmas just around the corner, I’ve created my second annual gift guide: 15 Ideas for Comadres Who Love Comida, Cultura, and Self-Care. It includes some of my absolute favorite gifts – items I either purchased for myself, received from a friend, or have gifted to my amigas, hermanas, and comadres. This year’s guide has goodies from as low as $4 to no more than $50 and covers that vegan friend you never know what to get, mom who needs a break, self-care diosas, and all of the fellow food lovers in your life. 

Happy shopping,

I hope you find something you love in my holiday gift guide for kids who don’t need a single toy.  

Happy holidays,

And stay tuned, because I have a kid’s guide coming up next. 

Happy shopping,
