Dos i una: one of Barcelona’s quirkiest gift shops

Dos i una

One day, strolling around the Eixample quarter and heading up rue Rosselló, we found ourselves face-to-face with a life-sized indigo silhouette, standing outside a shop with a very bright, attractive window display.

After that, of course we went in. The shop was Dos i una. Two plus one… why yes, that makes three. What of it?

You’ll soon be drawn in to the depths of the shop, divided into three main sections, by their impressive range of attractive products. Whether you’re looking for a present for your friend’s newborn baby or something for your grandfather who already seems to have everything, this is the place to find it.

Dos i una: fun, original gift ideas

Dos i una is a proper Aladdin’s cave: everywhere you turn, you’ll find yet another gift idea for someone else on your list.

Designer lamps, pieces by local artists, funky kitchen implements, quirky clocks, wacky toys, scarves, ties, T-shirts, baby clothes, gadgets, accessories, jewellery… it might be quicker to list things they don’t sell!

Gifts for all budgets

A trip to Dos i Una isn’t as bad for your finances as you might think. There are lots of great ideas in the 5-20 euro price range. Some items are more expensive, but nothing too excessive.

Our favourite Dos i Una find

The shop is positively overflowing with fabulous gift ideas, but our absolute favourite was the collection of brightly-coloured babygros, each with a pouch and its own soft toy! It’s enough to make anyone broody…

Every time we visit Dos i Una, we find something new – so we’re not likely to run out of gift ideas any time soon. Go on, give it a try!
