Mother’s Day is coming up and we all know what that means: time to show our love and appreciation for the mamis in our life! Although we should be celebrating our moms all year round, Mother’s Day is a special day to make her feel extra special for all the hard work she does, give her great gifts, and shower her with the pampering she deserves. It’s also a great opportunity to support Latina-owned businesses, especially when many entrepreneurs are mothers themselves. From a cozy personalized robe from JZD to haircare bundle from Rizos Curls, we’ve put together a list of ideas for gifts to get your mami this year. So this Mother’s Day, check out these Latina-owned businesses and spread the love for all the moms!
