21 Gifts for Mexican dads
When your Latino, Father’s Day will always be a big holiday in the family. But while we technically show our fathers how much we love them through the year, it’s nice to let them know just how much you love them on their special day. Mexican Dads sacrifice, work and live to make the loves of their children as easy as possible.
And for that and because of how important this holiday is, we have prepared a list with the best gift for your Mexican Dad, and here are a few things you can buy him to show him you care.
From typical food to Mexico’s memorabilia, here are 21 gifts ideas for that Mexican Dad of yours! Viva Mexico!
#1 A Special Gift Card
Starting with the basics, a gift can go a long way when you accompany it with the ideal card. This “Sigues Siendo el Rey” card shows not only the love you feel for your dad but also what you think of him! Besides, any memorabilia related to Mariachi’s is going to hit the spot with Mexican Dads!
#2 A Spanish Pride T-shirt
Dads are proud men. Proud of their work, their family and their friends. But, most of all, they’re proud of where they came from. Let them share their love for his native language with pride! This spectacular t-shirt will show everyone where he comes from while reminding them of how proud he is of his origins!
#3 A Latino Hustle Sweater
Your dad has worked hard in his life so you can live your best life. That’s what we call the hustle and no one hustles harder than Latinos. Besides, imagine him wearing this one on a cold day that turns hot, and then taking it off to show that special Spanish t-shirt we mentioned earlier? He’ll be the life of the party!
#4 A Mug that Reflects His Position
This is the ultimate “#1 Dad” mug on the market. Seriously. He can now walk around the house and office letting everyone know that he is the boss. Is there a way to have a cooler mug? For Latino men, there isn’t! So make sure your dad feels like the best dad in any environment!
#5 The Best Cooking Tool
If there’s something Mexican Dads love is to cook, and this item is perfect for putting a new meaning to “Fire Up the Grill”, the BBQ Dragon sends a blast of oxygen into the grill to speed up the grilling process. The result: More time for dad to char his carne asada! Just think of it as a gift that gives back to you!
#6 A Place to Store Photos
Mexican Dads love to show off their children and accomplishments, so give him a way to keep all those photos in one place!
