Two weeks left till Christmas. It's hightime we start thinking about what to put under that Xmas tree and i think this really is the last week i'd dare to order anything online (Especially from the States)! I'm just getting to know Etsy (i know i'm quite late), the web's nr 1. website to buy/sell all things handmade but it seems to be a great place to buy original gifts which are one of a kind and truly unique. Not surprisingly Barcelona seems to be a source of inspiration for many amateur and professional artists so here is my handpicked Barcelona gift guide by Etsy.

It is hung from a fancy copper chain with toggle clasp

This super chic Barcelona Baby Bag is a beautiful combination creme and black foral. The exterior of this bag is a combination of creme and black floral accented with elastic side pockets in the same material for easy access of bottles, keys and wallet. The interior lining of the bag is adorned with electric royal blue dupioni silk fabric. The six interior pockets are floral cotton for easy access of contents and storage. Black grosgain ribbon completes the look of the bag. Fabric straps are floral on the exterior with electric blue on the interior for an extra pop.

Barcelona Moleskin Pocket Cashier Ruled Notebook by Acreativesoul
This Moleskine cahier is embellished with a lovely frame and assorted vintage button. The frame is a recycled slide frame (outer dimensions 5X5 cm i.e 2X2") covered with cork contact paper. It displays a photograph of Barcelona (Spain) taken by my boyfriend (Damien Lacroix) and computer-edited. Both the frame and button are durably glued to the front cover with archival gel medium (no stitches).
Each journal is handmade so that the journal you will receive can slightly differ from the one you see here (particularly the vintage button).
