Lola’s 2020 Gift Guide: 10 Ideas for Kids Who Don’t Need a Single Toy

¡Hola! I’m back with another gift guide for you, and just like last year, I’ve curated my list for the chiquitos who who don’t need a single toy! Yes, I’m the mean tía who doesn’t like giving toys, unlike my sister who’s always the fan fave because she gives out life-sized doll houses and dinosaurs kingdoms. Spoiler alert: more than half of the items on this year’s gift list for kids include books that Amado, Valentina, and I have loved and read over and over again. The rest are other fun and functional items that I think you and your little ones will enjoy.

Happy shopping,

Lola

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,
