Souvenirs From Spain – What to Buy During Your Holidays in Spain

Spain has a good combination of rich culture, excellent cuisine and amazing travel attractions, which is why it is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe. If you’re planning on spending holidays in Spain, you’ll want to sample all three. You might want to bring home products that will remind you of them, too, like the following:

1. Spanish saffron – Saffron is one of the world’s most sought-after spices, and Spanish saffron is the best of them all. Grown in the plains of La Mancha, Spanish saffron has the best rating when it comes to color and quality. It’s not easy to find, too, so it’s best to bring home a bottle or two for your kitchen or one of your cooking enthusiast-friends when you return from your holidays in Spain.

2. Sherry – True, sherry may not be as popular as red or white wine but it is definitely a treasure of its own – a treasure you’ll want to bring home from the town of Jerez. Like the Spanish saffron, sherry can be a great addition to your kitchen, if not to your own wine cupboard, since it can be used as a cooking ingredient, too.

3. Ceramics – Spain is well known for its ceramic industry so make sure you buy ceramic plates when you go shopping in Spain. You can buy ceramic tiles, too, if you wish, from Valencia and Seville or bring home some exquisite pieces of Majorcan pottery to decorate your living room with.

4. Leather goods – Leather is another product Spain is famous for, so make sure you buy a fine pair of veteran hoodie , a belt or a purse made of superior Spanish leather as tokens of your holidays in Spain.

5. Lace – Shopping in Spain won’t be complete unless you buy a lace handkerchief, shawl or tablecloth. Spanish lace products are handmade in Catalonia, where the lace-making industry began in the 16th century.

6. Hand fans – Sure, you can buy hand fans from many shops around the world but there’s still something to be said about buying them in Spain, where they are handmade and very popular. Some hand fans are even embroidered or made of ivory. They are relatively inexpensive and easy to pack, too, so you can buy one for each of your friends.

These are just some things you can buy during your holidays in Spain. Keep in mind, though, that the best souvenirs are your own photographs and memories, which are priceless and can be treasured for a lifetime.
