Latino parenting blogs PapiBlogger and Mamá Contemporánea are issuing a “national call for gift ideas” for the 2010 PapiBlogger Holiday Gift Guide.  The attractive, fully bilingual guide will be published and distributed nationally on November 8.  The deadline to submit gift ideas for this special shopping guide is October 26.

“I have a lot of respect for the mami bloggers and am very proud to be working on this guide with Mamá Contemporánea because she’s one of the best ones,” said Manny Ruiz, publisher of the creative parenting site PapiBlogger and the first Latino father blogger in the nation. “Our holiday gift guide will be part of a new digital tradition that bilingual, English and Spanish-dominant Latino families will happily share with each other this holiday season.”


The gift guide will consist of a wide range of gift ideas for moms, dads and children of all ages.  Gift ideas will range from the latest and greatest baby bags to the best electric shavers and digital cameras.  The bloggers will write 75 to 125-word entries for each item that makes it into the guide.


The guide will be heavily promoted in both social and traditional media outlets through a comprehensive proprietary platform developed by PapiBlogger and Mamá Contemporánea that guarantees that participating companies’ products will receive strong visibility with Hispanic consumers leading up to the Hanukah and Christmas holidays.

Companies and/or their public relations firms can submit their gift ideas by emailing  All gift ideas accepted for inclusion in the guide will become joint property of PapiBlogger and Mamá Contemporánea and a portion of all the gifts reviewed will be donated to prominent family charities.


Companies who wish to sponsor the guide will receive enhanced opportunities for visibility and are urged to contact PapiBlogger for customized ideas at the same email or by phone 305.321.5002.

  1. I am ecstatic to see that this holiday gift guide will be fully bilingual.

    So happy to see that more is being done to promote the bi/mono-lingual Latino community in the U.S.

  2. I find it tough sometimes to shop for dads and this will be great so they don’t get the standard tie. Thank you for putting this together!
