The Best Barcelona Gifts
It’s not always easy to find a Barcelona gift shop online, so I’ve brought together some fantastic Barcelona-themed gifts for you all in one place. I’m sure you’ll find something suitable among these Barcelona gift ideas!
Gifts for People Going to Barcelona
Barcelona Hotel Vouchers
If you’d like to pay for some accommodation in Barcelona as a gift experience, a fantastic place to buy hotel vouchers is Tinggly, which has various gift boxes available for different amounts, and you can save 15% on all collections on Tinggly with the discount code CLAIRE-vXxt until the end of Christmas day!
The European Escape for example is $150 USD for a one-night stay for two at one of 10,000 hotels in the collection, or if you have a higher budget, the Weekend Getaway for Two is $359 USD for a two-night stay for two people in a double or twin room, or the Relaxing Stay for Couples is another option, priced at $599 USD for two nights for two people.
For added flexibility, your gift recipient can choose to add extra nights in the same hotel at their own expense or convert the price you paid into Tinggly Value which means they can add more money to stay in an alternative hotel if they don’t find anything they like at that price range.
I usually use Booking.com to book my hotels, but they don’t sell online gift vouchers so another good place to buy hotel vouchers online is through Hotels.com gift cards. You can buy the the gift cards in various denominations and can be used to pay for thousands of places to stay worldwide, and any hotel in Barcelona listed on Hotels.com.
Barcelona Experience Gift Vouchers
Tinggly gift boxes are a fabulous Barcelona gift idea where you purchase a gift box for a certain value, and the gift recipient chooses the experience they want from the variety of options available in Barcelona and across the world.
The higher the value of your experience collection, the more luxurious options they will have to choose from, and you can see a selection of what they can book at the bottom of the experience page, filtering by choosing Barcelona as the location.
When purchasing you have the choice of a physical gift box you can give as a gift or an online voucher which is best if you’re not going to see your gift recipient in person before they travel.
Instead of buying a gift certificate or voucher, you could choose to book a specific experience if you’re confident you know which dates they are travelling. Check out this article about the best Barcelona experience gifts for some inspiration!
Barcelona Books to Give as Gifts
Books about Barcelona make for fantastic gifts, and whether you decide to buy a guidebook for an upcoming trip, a fictional tale set in Barcelona, or a coffee table book with beautiful photos of Barcelona.
Instead of linking to Amazon, I’ve chosen to link to the books about Barcelona that are available to buy on Bookshop.org. Bookshop.org support independent bookstores, either by allowing you to choose which bookstore you want to buy from or by donating profits to bookstores to help them to compete online and maintain a presence in their local communities.
