WHAT TO BUY IN BARCELONA AS SOUVENIRS IF YOU ARE A FOOD LOVER?
Spanish food items make great gifts for foodies. If you don’t want to get anyone the kind of souvenirs that are going to end up gathering dust on a shelf at your friends’ house, we’ve prepared for you a list of Spanish foods that guarantee a successful gift.
Here are our top suggestions as Spanish gifts for foodies:
Wines and liquors
Olive oil and olives
If you have friends that like to cook Spanish food recipes, then nothing will make them happier than getting them some pure virgin olive oil (even better if it comes in an elegant glass bottle or a classy can). Other olive-related things to buy in Barcelona are canned seasoned olives and olivada (olive paste) will definitely be welcome and be the star of the next appetizers they need to prepare.
AND BONUS! One more idea for what to buy in Barcelona as souvenir for your cooking-loving friends!
Isn’t paella THE most famous Spanish dish? Making it a home can be tricky unless you have the right ingredients, and the Spanish type of rice used for it is hard to find abroad: it’s called “arroz bomba”, and it’s pretty easy to find in large supermarkets and specialty stores. You can also buy paella packages that come in beautiful presentations containing the main dry ingredients needed: just add the fresh veggies and fish or meat, and you are ready to go!
You can find most of these Spanish specialty foods in the Boqueria Market, but if you enjoy shopping for food, don’t miss our food tours!
