    What to buy: Barcelona, and I needed to buy some souvenir's for the family. Across the road from the Sagrada Familia Church are some Souvenir shops.
    I can't tell you if they were cheap as I hadn't looked elsewhere, but I can tell you, they had a huge range of what appeared to be good quality souvenirs. I bought a few items and then was allowed to take some photo's. Even if you don't buy, go for a look, there is plenty of interest.

    Ceramics in Barcelona

    Souvenirs are full of very cosy ceramics. You can choose practical and useful souvenirs. BUT! Attention people from northern countries – ceramics from the south can become crunchy. Climates and humidity level can affect ceramics strength.

    What to pay: From 6 EUR till...

    Postcards

    Some of the postcards

    I stopped doing photos inside the modernist buildings when I saw the wide variety of postcards reflecting every possible corner and detail of these buildings, both inside and outside them.
    Is a cheap option to buying those fantastic books on modernist architecture that you will find in souvenirs shops too...

    Souvenirs: Modernist souvenirs

    A modernist shop window

    In most of the souvenirs shops of BCN you can find many items with a modernist flavour, from lamps to ashtries, from notebooks to handkerchiefs...

    They use to be very elegant and colourful and make a perfect gift back home.

  • Wawas Barcelona: Unique Postcards and Souvenirs from BCN!

    by Emzy915 Written Feb 23, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Tucked away down one of the narrow side-streets of La Ribera neighborhood, just a few steps from the Picasso Museum, is the Wawas Barcelona shop, a hip and cool souvenir heaven for visitors and lovers of Barcelona alike. Wawas is filled with funky gifts that range from wallpapers created by native designers to unique cookbooks of Catalan recipes, yet the Wawas postales are probably the coolest souvenirs you can bring back from your Barcelona travels. The Wawas postcards boast images of the city’s rich life, culture and architecture through the artistic eyes of two sisters who’ve made Barcelona their home for years. The photographs that appear on the postcards and Xocoa chocolate bar wrappers pay artistic homage to some of the less-known city sites by capturing the beauty in their details. For those travelers to want to escape the mainstream and overpriced tourist shops that suffocate Las Ramblas, Wawas is a fun and genuine alternative. If you’re looking for a funky, chic and savvy souvenir from Spain’s hippest city, Wawas will not leave you disappointed. C/Carders 14, Barcelona.

    What to pay: Sales until the end of Februrary on everything in the store from 5% to 20%! Prices range from 1 Euro postcards (of photographs taken by two native Barcelonian sisters) to 60 Euro fish-eye cameras and imported products from India, Mexico and more.

    Souvenirs: Unusual Gifts

    by elainecox Written Sep 3, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you want something unusual it is best to look on some of the market stalls that ocupy the Ramblas from day to day. You can pick up some really nice gifts. Some are expensive, but I bought this necklace (A scarab beetle in Egyptian style) with chain for €6 and its great. There are loads of nice little stalls with jewellery and other articles to buy, which are all great for souvenirs!

    What to pay: Anything from €5 to €50!

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I got a lot of little souvenirs from this shop on the Ramblas. The guys working the shop were very nice and eager to help. It contains pretty much the same souvenirs you find in the other gift shops but usually a bit cheaper and we always could get them to give us a deal (10-20% off) on the things we bought.

    What to buy: Souvenir gifts, including ceramics, mugs, t-shirts, ect.

    What to pay: varies on the item

    Art Escudellers: Fragile!

    by IceBear7 Written Dec 28, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This really is a tourist shop, with loooong opening hours. But you can get some nice souvenirs or Christmas presents.
    They sell ceramics from all over Spain, and they even tell you where it comes from. So you are able to buy something that was actually made in Barcelona or Catalunya.

    Prices are okay, some of the stuff is horrible!!!, other things are beautiful, and they wrap it really well to take it home safely. Or else you just by online...

    Souvenirs: Is this typical of Barcelona?

    by Elisabcn Updated Jul 29, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You'll find a lot of souvenirs shops around Barcelona and specially along the ramblas. There are a lot of things sold as "typical from Barcelona and Catalonia" that they don't have anything to do with the city. Here are some examples:

    What to buy: -
    Typical Souvenirs
    -t-shirts
    -postcards
    -porró (to drink beer and wine)
    -barretina (the traditional catalan hat)
    -a good catalan wine can be a very appreciated souvenir
    -the flag of catalonia
    -pictures, draws or posters of miró, dalí, tàpies and picasso
    -any gift about modernisme and gaudí

    Non typical Souvenirs
    -mexican hat (after 30years i'm still asking myself why are they sold in Barcelona!!)
    -castañuelas
    -sevillana dress, cordobés hat
    -toros (bulls, Barcelona is an antitaurina city)
    -Barcelona's Hard Rock Caffè t-shirt (why? they are american!)

    Souvenirs-Ringels: Not only t-shirts or Sangria!!

    by Azhut Updated Jan 17, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Ringels

    In carrer de Mallorca just some steps away from the Sagrad Familia you can find many souvenirs shops, but in my opinion the best shops are a little bit far from there. If you want to buy things with lower costs walk more and choose "Ringels" shop for your shopping.

    What to buy: "Ringels" offers typical catalan things like Gaudi's style ceramics, ash-trays, glasses etc. or you can buy a cup with the image of "El burro catalan", the symbol of Catalunya: the donkey. I noticed that "Ringels" has many articles for your house, instead of t-shirts or Sangria's bottles for example....... the same old things that everyone uses to buy during a trip.

    I am looking for a particular store it is on the road via Plaça Nova near Barcelona cathedral the one with the airbridge and it is right past it toward the square. It is on the left if going to the square and it has celebrity dolls that look handmade in the window. I am wanting to get a Christmas gift and cant find it. It would be amazing if someone knew the name of it. THANK U!
