Gifts for Mexican Dads

Buying the best present for mom is typically pretty tricky—but in our experience, finding a good gift for Mexican dads (or any father-like figure, for that matter) is notoriously difficult. He's usually claiming that he already has everything—or, even worse, that he wants nothing. And, on the other hand, there really isn't any gift in the world that's worthy of all he's done for you. Here are a few high level ideas, with product ideas below:

  1. A cookbook or kitchen gadget featuring Mexican cuisine, such as "The Mexican Kitchen" by José Pizarro or a tortilla press, which can help him try out new recipes and techniques.
  2. A piece of Mexican art or decor, such as a colorful folk art painting or a hand-woven serape blanket, which can add a touch of Mexican culture to his home.
  3. A bottle of high-quality tequila or mezcal, such as Herradura or Del Maguey, which can be enjoyed as a special treat or used to make a classic Mexican cocktail.
  4. A gift card to a Mexican restaurant or grocery store, such as La Michoacana or El Super, which can provide him with the ingredients to make his favorite dishes at home or a chance to enjoy a meal out.
