Gifts that every Mexican-American dad will approve of

Mexican-American dads are an enigma. One minute they can be on their high horse talking about respect/God/how much better we have it than they did, and the next, they’re doing gritos and cracking jokes from a super-old George Lopez HBO special. (The one about how all Mexican houses are full of Aztec god panaderia calendars is my dad’s go-to.)

Of course, this experience varies based on generation and geography. Still, at their core, Mexican-American dads are all about family, food, and fun. So, celebrate the dads in your life with gifts that’ll elevate their BBQ game, add oomph to their wardrobe, and upgrade their favorite hobbies. Most importantly, you’ll let them know that they’re appreciated on Father’s Day, their birthday, or any day you feel like giving them a gift to say te amo.

High West Double Rye Whiskey


High West


If Crown Royal or Chivas Regal has been your dad’s go-to sipper since the ’80s, introduce him to something new. High West Double Rye is a blend of two straight rye whiskies, a smooth 16-year and a sweeter, more fiery 2-year. The result is a flavorful, balanced spirit ideal for both drinking neat and mixing. And, at $30, High West Double Rye is a no-brainer.
