Madrid: What to Bring Home

Nothing quite says “I missed you/Thanks for holding down the fort while I was gone/ Sorry I’m not sorry I had the best time on my vacation” like a well chosen souvenir. And I’m sure as heck not talking about a shot glass or fridge magnet. Choose something that transports you back to that holiday state of mind. Here are our top take homes from Madrid:

1. Micropuzzle of El Bosco’s “El jardin de las delicious”

The puzzle fiend in your life will love a tiny tube filled with the 150 pieces that make up El Bosco’s masterpiece. Bonus points if you find the puzzle piece of the guy with flowers coming out of his rear end.

2. Tapas Magazine

With a cover line of “Come quickly, I am tasting the starts!” (said by Benedictine monk, Dom Perignon, when he first tried champagne) you can’t go wrong. The wine issue does not disappoint.
