Shop Small for Día de los muertos

by | Oct 14, 2019 | Día de los muertos, Gift Guides, Lifestyle

Día de los muertos – a holiday celebrated in México, Central America & South America – is just around the corner. Over the years, this holiday has gained more and more popularity in the United States as well, thanks to the amazing Latinx population here.

Today I’m celebrating the holiday with a group of my favorite bloggers in a Día de los muertos blog hop! Make sure you check their posts below for some Spanish learning, book suggestions, activity ideas and more!

I thought a fun way to honor the holiday of Día de los muertos this year would be to highlight some shops on Etsy that sell beautiful & fun Día de los muertos products. Of course you can find decorations and other Día de los muertos items at Target, Michaels, etc. but it’s so much fun to support small businesses – amiright?!

Whether you’re setting up an ofrenda or altar, wanting to add some Día de los muertos flare to your wardrobe, or looking for ways to share the holiday with your kids or classroom–I’ve got you covered. Check out all the neat stuff below!

If you know of any great shops on Etsy that sell things relating to Día de los muertos or anything Latinx, will you let me know? I’d love to share about them here!
