Must-have Gifts from Barcelona, Spain

Visiting Barcelona

About Barcelona

The vibrant city of Barcelona needs no introduction.

Over the centuries the Catalan capital has inspired numerous artists, filmmakers, writers, and international travelers. The first time I visited Barcelona back when I was 15, and I still have butterflies in my stomach every time I recall walking the streets of the mysterious El Barrio Gotico or marveling at the colorful Gaudi architecture for the first time.

It almost feels like Barcelona comes with an artsy tag: even talking about the most unique Barcelona gifts immediately brings in a creative twist. But you can go further and support the amazing work of local artists by purchasing their creations on Etsy.

Local & Handmade Gifts from Barcelona

Artisan products have always been the most valuable gifts for me.

Essentially, these are tiny works of art that deeply reflect local culture and character. In a world of mass-produced goods, shopping handmade & local is our strongest investment in preserving traditional techniques and supporting the economy surrounding any craftsperson.

Some say that a handmade gift is “a gift from the heart”, which contains a lifetime of memories. So, what could be a better souvenir to bring home from Barcelona than a piece of local artwork?

While there are lots of unique artists in Barcelona, I have handpicked only a few unique products that I love myself (as a part of my Spanish Gifts Blog Series). Therefore, I hope you will find in this blog post something for your taste too.

Handmade Book Sleeves From Barcelona

Visiting Barcelona in the company of a new wanderlust book is always a source of extra inspiration. Especially if you pick one of the contemporary Spanish novels set in Barcelona, like The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafón.

Ariadna from Aribook creates wonderful handmade book sleeves to protect your favorite reads on the go. One of the best picks for Barcelona lovers would be the BCN Book Sleeve with the flower of Barcelona (also called el panot de flor). This symbol of the city was created by the modernist architect Josep Puig i Cadafalch as a floor tile, but with time the flower of Barcelona ended up turning into a local emblem.
