AMIGOS Launches 2021 Holiday Gift Guide Featuring Latinx Shops to Support
— The largest Latinx Community on Clubhouse is featuring Latino Businesses to promote shopping with Latino businesses and buying culturally relevant gifts this holiday season. —
MIAMI, FL — December 8, 2021 — (LATINX NEWSWIRE) — Latinx Community, AMIGOS launched their first annual Holiday Gift Guide featuring products by Latino shops. The gift guide will be supported by events on the social audio app Clubhouse where Latinx shop owners will share their entrepreneurial journeys and the stories behind their businesses.
The guide is split into nine helpful categories including art, apparel, jewelry, home, parents, kids, and cositas (miscellaneous). Each category contains five gifts, each from a separate business with prices ranging from $4 to $300 to allow for any budget. Some of the businesses featured include Pisqueya Hot Sauce, Ojala Threads, Casa Bríxe, YaVe Tequila, Martha of Miami, Hola Mijas Bonitas, and Hija de tu Madre.
“We know that supporting Latino businesses is important, but so is cost. That is why most of the gifts we feature are between $10 and $50. The goal is to make it incredibly easy for anyone to support these businesses and put more money in the hands of Latino entrepreneurs and their families,” says AMIGOS founder Danay Escanaverino.
AMIGOS was created in December 2020 in response to events and businesses going virtual during the height of the pandemic. Danay wanted to create a space where Latinos could gather to connect and promote their businesses, even though they couldn’t meet in-person. She knew that then-new social audio platform Clubhouse was the perfect place to make that happen. The community has rapidly grown to over 36,000 members and continues to support its members through daily events and resources on multiple social platforms and a website.
Members of the AMIGOS community enjoy daily networking events in Spanish and English, a free business directory, a weekly newsletter with job opportunities, grants, resources, and other tools to help them grow as professionals and entrepreneurs.
“AMIGOS believes in supporting Latinx businesses of all sizes, and they did exactly that. This coquito season NEDA’s clients and sales have grown exponentially! I am so truly grateful and appreciative of the connections and friendships that have grown from AMIGOS. I urge everyone to connect in AMIGOS.” Said Luz Nazario, owner of NEDA’s Coquito, one of the businesses featured in the gift guide.
