Souvenirs from Spain
Souvenirs from Spain are lovely reminders of your trip to the Iberian Peninsula. Clothing and accessories, in particular, are highly sought after, including durable leather purses and belts, handmade lace turned into delicate shawls or accents on shirts, jewelry created using fine metals and glass beads, and shoes from the Alicante region. Those searching for something truly spectacular may wish to have a traditional bullfighter's costume made for them, complete with gilt braided bolero jacket and pants, or a flamenco dancing outfit, with a swirling, colorful skirt. The Moorish occupation of the Kingdom of Spain has an effect on the motifs and designs of furniture and homes to this day, and you will find beautifully crafted furniture, chests and boxes for sale, as well as locally woven area rugs and carpets. Spanish souvenirs could also include the lively postcards, fridge magnets, key chains and water globes for sale at the major attractions.
If you are searching for home decor, Spain's artisanal tradition has a great deal to offer. Ceramic tiles, painted with regional symbols, can be purchased in bulk to add interest to a wall, or singly to use as serving tray for Jamon Iberico, a specialty Spanish smoked ham. Vividly glazed pottery pieces, such as pitchers, bowls and vases in shades of purple, green and blue, would make for a pleasant wall display or look at home on a dining room table. Wooden toys, such as puppets and dolls, will be treasured by children and passed down as family heirlooms, or could provide a whimsical touch to a living room. The Catalonia region is well known for producing quality cloth that can be purchased by the yard to turn into draperies, slipcovers and household linens. The history and location of Spain ensure that the antique markets are full of fascinating finds, certain to make for a memorable souvenir from Spain.
