Products you buy through our links may earn us a commission.

September is Hispanic Heritage Month, so we’re shining a spotlight on some Latinx women-owned businesses you’ll want to support all year long. From items perfect for gifting to products that’ll zhuzh up your home to top-of-the-line skincare, check out our faves and add to cart.

Nails for a long-lasting manicure without a trip to the salon…

They’re the modern-day press-ons you didn’t know you needed. (Or, if you’re like us, maybe you did.) We’re obsessed with Chillhouse nails because they’re made with high-quality materials, come with all the tools you’ll need to apply them, and feel no heavier or thicker than a regular salon mani. You’ll get 24 nails with intricate art and patterns, a buffer, file, cuticle stick, and nontoxic adhesive that won’t damage your nails when you’re ready for a new set. Nailed it. ($15.99, Target)

A tall leather tote perfect for everyday use…

This one’s part of the brand’s core collection of goods that’ll work for you all year round. We love the large interior that can hold your laptop and other work essentials and the lightweight leather that’s been Leather Working Group certified (aka they use environmentally responsible tanning processes). Pair it with more of the brand’s core collection — like the supple laptop sleeve, small zipper pouch, and AirPods case — and keep an eye out for their seasonal colors to add a pop to your wardrobe. ($248, Cuyana)

A flutter-tip vibe that’s discreet but powerful…

If you’re traveling, this vibrator will be your go-to on-the-road buddy. It has three speeds, is waterproof, and comes with a handy canvas pouch for storage. We love how efficient it is, along with its small design. Psst…if you’re using it with a partner, try the brand’s natural aloe- and water-based lubricant and compostable wipes for a quick clean-up. ($49, Maude)

A sustainable cleaning kit with refillable bottles to last you a lifetime…

So you can clean your bathroom counters, windows, and other surfaces while being a little kinder to the planet. This set comes with three spray bottles, three refills, a reusable towel, and a palo santo stick to keep the good vibes coming. We’re also fans of the brand for other beauty and wellness staples like their calm bath collection and pre- and post-natal supplements. ($19.99, Honest)

Buy it


A beauty fridge for your fave skincare essentials…

Keep your face masks, eye cream, and jade rollers chilled — or warm them with the flick of a switch — in this mini fridge from Tata Harper. It’s energy-efficient, super quiet, and small enough to be moved wherever you need it. And if you need to upgrade your own beauty stash, add the sculpting body stone, cleansing kabuki brush or facial cupping set to your cart. ($79, Tata Harper)

Buy it


Stackable statement rings you can mix and match…

Knock, knock. Your inner child is calling. So get ’em these quirky Blobb rings crafted by Mexican jewelry designer Sofia Elias. They’re made from clay and resin and come in a rainbow of colors — from lime green to bright orange — and are finished with gems in all shapes and sizes. BTW, these mini creations are delicate, so the brand recs avoiding contact with water, antibacterial gel, sprays, or any kind of liquid. ($65+, Sofiaelias.mx)

Buy it


A leave-in conditioner with ingredients sourced from Latin America…

This guava conditioner is an HQ’r fave and bestseller for good reason. It hydrates, repairs, and protects your locks from harmful UV rays and free radicals. Latin American–sourced ingredients like safflower extract, tamarind, and avocado strengthen and tame frizz, while guava, peach, and lemon zest leave an addicting scent for days. Pair it with the brand’s deep wash duo, papaya scalp scrub, and handheld scalp massager. ($24, Ceremonia)

Buy it


Eco-conscious lingerie you’ll feel good wearing…

This brand is constantly sourcing and featuring new fabrics and technologies that are good for the earth — and for you. Like printing garments to save on water waste and using fabrics made from recycled plastic bottles. We love the everyday comfort collection, featuring light micro-mesh bras made from upcycled nylon in pink, black, and nude shades. Pair ’em with the mesh Nothing Thong and high-waisted undies designed with remnant mesh that would have otherwise gone to a landfill. Earth-conscious? Check. Pieces that’ll make you look and feel good? Check annnnd check. ($24+, Naja)

Buy it


Bold minimalist jewelry handcrafted in Puerto Rico…

Like these long pearl drop earrings with solid sterling silver and bold cultured Biwa pearls dangling at the bottom, or these stud earrings with a citrine gemstone in the center. The cherry on top? We also love their minimal hair accessories that add a perfect touch to every outfit: Add this one with a black onyx gem for nights out or go with this simple brass option for everyday wear. ($36+, AleishlaJewelry via Etsy)  

Buy it


Dainty prisms that’ll elevate your space…

From metalsmith Sol Proaño, these tiny works of art come in all shapes and sizes and make perfect gifts for housewarmings, birthdays, or treat-yo-self days. We love this suncatcher made with green and white prisms and a swirling brass structure. Or this more minimal piece with an arched brass frame and clear drop prisms. Set these up in a breezy window with lots of light and enjoy the view. ($70+, SolProano via Etsy)
