#2 Sangria spices mix

Here is another great Spain gift idea for people who miss the taste of the country; a sangria spices mix.

All they need to do is add wine, fruits, and ice, and mix it all together to make a delicious sangria.

Oh, and in case you’re not familiar with sangria. As you probably already guessed, it’s a super popular drink from Spain that’s made from wine, fruits, and a specific spice blend depending on who makes the sangria.


#3 Spanish-themed board games

If you are looking for Spain gifts for someone who also loves games, I’ve got a few fun options for you. Let’s start with my favorite type of game; board games. And for that, I’ve got two really fun Spanish-themed options for you.

  1. Sagrada. This is a board game where players have to try to make the most beautiful window decoration in the Sagrada Familia (the famous church in Barcelona).
  2. Azul. Actually, this game is very comparable to the previous one. Except, in Azul, players need to make the most beautiful mosaic on the board (not the Sagrada Familia).

For card games, check out #27, and for language learning games, head over to #13.


#4 DIY paella kit

Together with tapas, paella is probably the most famous Spanish dish. It’s a rice dish, that’s made with ground rice and saffron which gives it a yellow color. It usually includes some veggies, seafood, or meat. Paella is made in a large frying pan, which is called a paella in the Valencian language.

The dish is originally from Valencia, though most non-Spanish people consider it a national dish from Spain. The Spaniards, on the other hand, still consider it a dish from Valencia.

But whether it’s a national dish or not, it is very much associated with Spain and it’s delicious, which is why this DIY paella kit is another one of the great Spanish-themed gifts for foodies.

Are you looking for Spanish-themed gifts for someone who loves wine?

You’re in for a treat, because in today’s post, I will share a few cool wine gifts for Spain lovers.

And this map of wine regions of Spain is one of them. The map is available in five different sizes.


#6 Spanish ceramics

If you have ever visited Spain or a Spanish restaurant, you’ve probably drunk or eaten from a cup or a bowl in a typical Spanish design. You will find these original ceramics all over Spain, so why not bring a little bit of Spain to the recipient’s home?

I loved this pitcher that was hand-painted in Andalusia (Spain). It also serves as a water pitcher, but for wine lovers, I would simply say it’s a sangria pitcher. (If you don’t know what sangria is, check #2).

Or check out the cute salsa bowls that are also hand-painted in Andalusia.


#7 Spanish cheese basket

Looking to impress a Spain and cheese lover?

Get them a Spanish cheese gift box, and they’ll be shouting “¡Olé!” with joy! Packed with delicious varieties such as the famous Manchego, Mahon from Menorca, and Idiazabal from the Basque country, it’s the perfect gift for Spanish friends who miss home and for those who believe life’s too short to say no to cheese.


#8 Piece of Spanish land

This is probably the most hilarious Spain-themed gift; an actual piece of land in Spain! So the recipient can really enjoy life in the Spanish land. Though do keep in mind that it’s more of a symbolic gift, the recipient can’t actually build anything on the land. They can access the 53’873 ft² property near Madrid and they do get an official proof of landownership, making it a fun keepsake of Spain.


#9 Ceramic coasters

Looking to make your Spain-loving friend’s coffee table the envy of all? Gift them a set of six ceramic coasters, lovingly enameled by hand with the “dry rope” technique in Seville!

These coasters are more than just a place to rest a drink—they’re a piece of Spanish art at home. With these coasters, every sip will be a fiesta in true Sevillian style.


#10 Spanish gifts for sports fans

The Spaniards are big fans of soccer (or football, however you want to call it). Their national team is quite good and many Spanish soccer clubs are famous around the world. So if you are looking for Spanish gifts for him (or her), getting a Spanish soccer gift might be perfect for you.

Two major teams from Spain are F.C. Barcelona and Real Madrid, so check those webshops out for cool gifts.

But, if you’re not quite sure which team they support, simply get something from the national team.


#11 Toledo Damascene jewelry

Looking to add some Spanish flair to your loved one’s accessories? Gift them these Damascene Spanish small drop earrings and watch their style go from “meh” to “¡Ay caramba!”

These little beauties are crafted in Toledo Spain with the ancient damascene technique, where artisans from the region inlay thin threads of gold or silver onto the metal surface. The designs often feature beautiful patterns inspired by Arab, Christian, and Jewish cultures, reflecting the history of the region and making it a cherished and elegant Spanish gift for her.


#12 Gifts for art lovers

If you are looking for Spanish gift ideas for someone who is a big fan of art, you are in a good place. Spain has produced a large number of great artists.

The three most famous ones include

  1. Salvador Dali. The one who painted The Persistence of Memory on the photo
  2. Antoni Gaudí i Cornet. Though he was actually an architect, you can find cool gifts inspired by him.
  3. Pablo Picasso.

#13 Games for language learners

Make learning fun with these two awesome games that will have the recipient and other players speak Spanish in no time, and they won’t even realize that they’re learning! The two games I liked the most are Race to Madrid and Fitz Dios Mio!

  1. Dios Mio! This is a party and language game. It’s a great game to practice Spanish and learn more about other players.
  2. Race to Madrid. A language-learning board game in which players have to make Spanish sentences in order to win the game.
