    1. Barcelona is incredible in every season, but there’s definitely something magical about the city at Christmas!

  1. My husband’s said he’ll buy me a necklace for Christmas. Do you think he’ll take me to Barcelona to choose it?

    1. I hope he does! Barcelona has a variety of jewellery stores, so you would definitely be able to find your dream necklace!

  2. I’ve got a great idea. We go to Barcelona. My wife goes shopping and I finally get to watch Barcelona play at home.

    1. I’d bite my partner’s hand off for that deal. I get 2 or 3 days shopping and he gets 90 minutes of football.

      In fact I’d probably go with him to the Nou Camp. I’ve been before and it’s an amazingly colourful spectacle with a great atmosphere, it’s very different to English football.

  3. Two years ago we had a girls trip to Paris at the beginning of December which was absolutely magical.

    You’ve given me an idea for next Christmas. I’ll have to share it on the girls’ WhatsApp group. I think most of them will go for it.

    1. Barcelona is truly magical at Christmas time, so it would be the perfect girls trip destination!

  4. Take advantage of current momentum, there is a traffic slowdown in retail stores so that’s the perfect timing to go there without queueing or being annoyed by the crowd.

    1. Thanks for the comment Francois! I completely agree, now is definitely the perfect time to avoid the crowds whilst shopping.

  5. With our pavements coated with thick frost it is so tempting to hop on a plane to Barcelona to do my Christmas shopping there.

    1. Thanks for the comment Zara! That is definitely a tempting idea, especially since the Christmas lights are now up in the city, and there’s no frost covering our pavements.
