After so many posts about Spain and several destination-themed gift guides, I’m finally sharing a list of the best Spain themed gifts. I know I’m not the only one obsessed with this country, so if you’re looking for gift ideas for those who share my unconditional love for Spain, here’s the ultimate roundup.
FUN SPAIN THEMED GIFTS
NOVELS SET IN SPAIN
I can’t say that I’m a bookworm, but I’m definitely obsessed with books taking place in Europe and especially in Spain. For the right person, they would make an excellent gift!
My two most favorite ones are ‘The Return,’ which is set in Andalusia, and ‘The Shadow of the Wind‘ (such a classic), which takes place in Barcelona. It took me about two days to read them, so that says a lot about how good they are.

Sometimes the simplest gifts are the best ones. If they’re beautifully designed or illustrated, maps and posters can be the perfect gift idea. I know I would love to get wall art that flaunts my love for my favorite destination. Check out the beautiful designs you can find on Etsy.
Themed coffee mugs are always more fun, and as a coffee snob, I can say that I can never have too many of them. Check out this cute one on Etsy.
No woman can say no to a beautiful piece of jewelry, and you can definitely find some amazing items no matter what your budget is. I love Etsy for finding unique handmade pieces like this Spain-shaped necklace.
I know it can be quite depressing looking at a destination-themed calendar yet not having any booked trips, so this isn’t my first choice for a gift, but it’s always nice to have a few more ideas. Check out all Spain-themed calendars on Amazon.
Let me start by saying that, out of respect for Spanish football, I just can’t call it soccer. It really is such a huge part of the culture, and I’m obsessed with it myself (believe it or not). So if you’re looking for a gift for a Spanish football fan, this is obviously the perfect choice.
As a good Jewish girl, I obviously don’t celebrate Christmas, but that doesn’t mean I can’t suggest this gift for those of you who do. You can browse all Christmas ornament designs and prices on Amazon.
ANYTHING GAUDI RELATED
I’m a huge fan of Gaudi and his quirky buildings, and I know I’m not the only one. Most of his creations are located in Barcelona, but you can also find a few in northern Spain and the region of Castilla y Leon. If you’re looking for a gift for a Gaudi fan, there are books, 3D puzzles, wall art, and tons of other themed items you can get them.
I’m definitely a t-shirt and jeans kind of girl at times, especially when I find beautiful designs. Check out this cute one on Etsy.
Having a themed phone case is a fun way to show off one’s favorite destination. Unfortunately, there aren’t many Spain-themed cases, so they are only suitable for very specific types of phones. On Etsy, you’ll find Spain’s flag cases or Spanish cities cases.
TRAVEL GIFTS FOR SPAIN LOVERS
There’s nothing better to ignite one’s wanderlust than a travel book. Seriously, if I could, I would buy every single Spain travel guide. Browse all of them on Amazon.
LUGGAGE TAG AND PASSPORT HOLDER
What’s better than a gift that your loved ones can use when they’re actually traveling (even if it’s not to Spain)? Check out this design on Etsy.
I have a weakness for travel journals. I always have one with me when I’m traveling, and I love documenting my trips on the spot when all the memories are still fresh.
Learning Spanish is fun (ok, super fun) and essential, but the language differences between all Spanish-speaking countries can be pretty major, and that includes the accent, words, and phrases.
I can actually think of a specific word they use all the time in Spain, but unless you want to sound dirty and creepy, you should never say it in Argentina.
That’s why a Spain-oriented Spanish phrasebook can be very useful for people who are always planning their next trip to Spain and want to show off their Spanish without making any funny boo-boos. Check out this one by Lonely Planet on Amazon.
AUTHENTIC GIFTS FROM SPAIN
From tiles to plates to vases, Spanish ceramic production dates back to hundreds of years ago. The colors and patterns of these pieces are always vibrant and bold, so they’re not everyone’s cup of tea, but I love them as small decorative items. Check out these colorful designs on Amazon.
If you’re going for this classic Spanish item, make sure you’re buying a fan that’s actually made in Spain. Check out these beautiful designs on Etsy.
They can be a cute decorative item, but again, look for authenticity and pieces that were made in Spain.
It’s probably the most obvious Spanish gift idea, but I do wonder what one will do with a flamenco dress. Also, many of the dresses sold online are either costumes or not made in Spain, so that’s something to check and consider if you’re looking for an authentic item. You can check out this store on Esty that sells vintage flamenco dresses.
COOKING AND FOODIE SPANISH GIFT IDEAS
Spanish food is a lot more than just paella and tapas. Not that I have anything against them (totally the opposite), but there are dozens of regional dishes most people don’t know. So what’s better than a cookbook filled with traditional Spanish recipes to win a foodie’s heart? Browse all books on Amazon.
SPANISH OLIVE OIL
If there’s one quirky thing to know about me, is that I HATE olives. Like really hate and disgusted by them more than any other person I’ve ever met. Funny enough, I LOVE olive oil.
And if I’m going to buy olive oil, I’ll choose the best of the best, which is, of course, Spanish olive oil. Even with insane quantities produced in the country (about 50% of the world’s olive oil), its quality is always at the top, so it makes a fantastic gift for a foodie who loves Spain.
For those who love nougats, it doesn’t get any better than the Spanish turron. It’s an essential Christmastime treat, but you can buy it all year round in Spain and online. One of the biggest brands that make this nougat is Turrones Vicens, a family-owned company working since 1775. I’ve tasted some of their turrones in Madrid, and they were delicious, so I’m thrilled to see that you can also buy them on Amazon.
I’ve tried making paella at home a couple of times, and it was tasty, but it wasn’t even close to the traditional paella I had devoured in Valencia. I think I’m pretty good at cooking, but I guess I’m not that skilled.
That said, it was important for me to use an authentic paella pan and ingredients I had bought in Spain. I know it would be for any foodie trying to make paella. So check out this super cute paella kit on Amazon that any Spanish food lover would surely appreciate. I know I totally would.
SPANISH FOOD GIFT BASKET
You can never go wrong with a gift basket. Seriously, is there anyone who doesn’t love to get them? Check out the ones you can find on La Tienda.
SPANISH SAFFRON AND PAPRIKA
One of the best Spain related gifts has to be wine. From Sherry to Rioja to Cava (my favorite), who doesn’t love Spanish wines? It’s such a classic gift that never fails. Browse all wines and prices here.
One of my all-time favorite things to eat in Spain is churros with chocolate. Now, I’m not that great in making them at home, but if you know someone who is, a churro maker would be a perfect gift. Think about it – they’ll get to enjoy their gift, and you’ll probably get churros. It’s a win-win situation. Browse all prices and read reviews on Amazon.
Not the sexiest piece of clothing but definitely a cute gift for Spain lovers who like to cook. Browse all designs on Amazon.
I feel a bit weird about buying cheese online, so I wasn’t sure if I should include it on this list. But Manchego cheese is so delicious that I had to add it as a gift for people who love Spain. You can find it on La Tienda and even on Amazon.
