Barcelona gifts for large budgets
#1 Barça Caganer
Let’s start this list with a little Catalan humor to sparkle into your holiday season, with the Caganer (or Christmas crapper).
Standing at a proud 10 cm, dressed in a traditional red barretina and scarf, and well, caught in a rather compromising position, this little guy is a quintessential part of Catalan nativity scenes.
The origin of this little pooper in Catalan’s Christmas celebrations is not quite sure, but it’s a classic and fun Christmas gift for anyone who loves Barcelona, or a local who is celebrating Christmas abroad. With this little man, they can bring a little piece of Barcelona’s playful spirit to their holidays.
#2 Espadrille wedge sandals
If you are looking for Barcelona gifts for fashionistas, Viscata’s espadrille wedges are a fabulous option.
They’re an actual piece of Barcelona’s fashion scene. And with their sleek design and breathable materials, they are perfect for strolling anywhere!
For a truly local experience go for wedges from Viscata, an original Barca brand that’s still found in the heart of the city. Their shoes are handmade in Spain, using organic canvas and a natural jute midsole, making them the perfect sustainable and fashionable gift!
#3 Sagrada board game
Sagrada is a super cool board game and a great gift for anyone who loves Barcelona. In Sagrada, players make stained glass windows like the ones in the famous Sagrada Familia (hence the name).
It’s a mix of strategy and creativity, where players pick colorful dice and fit them into their window template, trying to create the most beautiful design.

#4 Barcelona Football gifts
For people who love soccer, getting an F.C. Barcelona gift is a no-brainer. And one of my favorite F.C. Barcelona gifts is this LEGO set of the Camp Nou stadium!
Imagine building the famous soccer stadium, where Messi and the other legends play, with LEGO bricks. It’s a fun way to feel like they’re part of the excitement and action of a soccer match right at home.
But if the recipient doesn’t have the patience to build with LEGO (or they just don’t enjoy it), check out Amazon for all sorts of F.C. Barcelona-inspired gifts. From jerseys, scarves, books, and posters, there is something for everyone.

#5 Experience gifts
An experience gift in Barcelona is the best kind of gift for everyone – whether they live there, just moved, or are visiting.
Don’t believe me? Believe in the science that shows why experience gifts are the best.
You could give a cooking class, a private guide around Casa Mila (or other famous buildings in the city), or even a fun adventure. They get to live, feel, and breathe the city in a way tangible gifts can’t match.
My favorite site for booking experience gifts is Tinggly because they allow you to buy an experience gift without booking a date. So that the recipient can pick a time and day which suits them.
#6 Wooden 3D map
Maps are my favorite home decor gifts, especially when I can find a map of a place the recipient loves, such as this gorgeous 3D map of Barcelona.
Though don’t worry if the recipient has a different style, you can find over a thousand different maps of Barcelona on Etsy.

#7 Coasters with “Barcelona flower” pattern
The Panot is a special flower tile you see all over Barcelona’s sidewalks. It’s as famous in Barcelona as the Sagrada Familia and Park Guell (okay, almost). This makes these gorgeous panot coasters great housewarming gifts for locals or as a souvenir. So every time you put down your drink, you’ll remember your favorite city’s streets.
Another unique way to give something related to the Panot Barcelona flower is this cute necklace! Wearing it is like carrying a bit of the city’s heart and history close to their heart.
It’s a subtle yet elegant way to celebrate the recipient’s love for Barcelona.
Though check out Etsy for other gorgeous Barcelona-inspired necklaces too.
#9 Sagrada Familia building set
This is a brilliant gift for anyone who loves Barcelona; they can build their own version of their favorite city’s most famous church!
This set has over 10049 pieces, making it a challenging and rewarding project. Just remember, the final church is quite big. So my advice? Double-check if the recipients would like such a big art project in their home (and if they actually have the space for it).
#10 DIY churros kit
A DIY churro kit is a yummy gift for anyone who loves food and Barcelona.
So technically, you can find churros all over Spain, but the best ones I had were in Barcelona! And that’s why I think this DIY kit is an awesome Barcelona-inspired gift (and trust me, any foodie will agree).
This kit lets the recipient make their own churros at home. It’s really fun and easy and it’s a delicious way to remember the great food from Barcelona and have a little Spanish snack adventure right in their kitchen.

#11 Professional photoshoot in Barcelona
This is another epic experience gift in Barcelona. Whether it’s for locals or someone traveling there soon, A Flytographer gift card is an awesome gift either way.
Through Flytographer they get to book pro photographers around the world, including Barcelona. Whether it’s the vibrant streets, the stunning architecture, or the sunny beaches, they’ll get some epic photos of all the cool spots in Barcelona to remember their time in the city.
It’s a fun way to make those Barcelona memories last forever, with stylish, professional photos they’ll treasure
#12 Caga Tio Christmas gift
The Caga Tió de Natal is a fantastic Barcelona Christmas gift, especially for families with kids. It’s a fun part of the Catalan Christmas tradition where this cute log “poops” out presents and sweets on Christmas Eve. Throughout December, kids feed the Tió with treats, and on Christmas Eve, they sing songs and hit the log to find gifts hidden under the blanket.
This particular Caga Tió is about 20cm long and comes with a traditional red cloth and barretina (Catalan hat). It’s handmade by artisans in Catalonia, making it a genuine souvenir and piece of the region’s culture.
#13 Catalan language course book
A Catalan language course book is a fantastic gift for people who love Barcelona and want to connect deeper with the city and locals.
Contrary to what some people think, Spanish is not the first language in Barcelona, but Catalan is.
This particular book is great because it takes learners from beginners to confident speakers. The course focuses on real-life situations, like using the phone or chatting about work, so it’s super practical. With helpful tips, easy grammar, useful vocabulary, and tests, it’s a complete package for anyone who wants to feel closer to Barcelona by speaking like the locals!

#16 Traditional pitcher
A traditional Catalan glass wine pitcher (called a Porrón), is Barcelona’s answer to ‘How do we make drinking wine even more fun?’
Whether it’s filled with wine, sangria, or even your fancy cocktails, the Porrón adds a splash of Catalan flair to any gathering. It’s the perfect mix of tradition and practicality, but remember, it’s glass. So handle it with care if you’re planning to bring it home as a souvenir.

#23 Olive oil
Olive oil from Barcelona, or as I like to call it, “liquid gold,” isn’t just your average cooking oil.
This Spanish delight is steeped in a rich tradition, especially in the Barcelona region, where olives are more than just a fruit; they’re a cultural icon.
Thanks to the unique Mediterranean climate and age-old production techniques that locals swear by, it’s a unique blend of fruity, and nutty, with a touch of zesty charm. That will have the recipient drizzling a bit of Barcelona’s liquid gold onto their food. Trust me, their salads (and taste buds) will thank you!
