Gift Guide 2020: Best Holiday Gift Ideas from Latina-owned brands

At LatinaMeetup we are all about supporting small Latina businesses all year.

However, this holiday season it is imperative that we support them, given that the impact of COVID-19 restrictions is hitting small businesses and their workers harder than anyone else. Now more than ever, we need to have their backs and ensure their survival.

We know you are getting bombarded with Black Friday and Cyber Monday specials by the big retailers. So we wanted to provide you list featuring 20 Latina small businesses that we think are great options for finishing off your holiday shopping lists. 

The bonus is that you KNOW you are making an impact!

I'm continually inspired by the memories of my childhood, stories about Cuba from my father, rich culture, and all of the food I have enjoyed with friends and family. I use fresh ingredients such as natural butters and oils, fresh brewed coffee, fruit purees, cassava, and fresh milks. All of the products are made in small batches in order to obtain the highest quality.
