Freebies for New Mums in Spain
First of all you can get a free gift set (canastilla) from several supermarkets or websites. These sets come with a variety of items for new mums, and it’s well worth registering for all of them. As your details will probably end up on mailing lists, to avoid being spammed it’s a good idea to set up an email address just for these companies or simply unsubscribe after a few months.
If you’re pregnant or have a baby under 5 months old, you can request a gift set from Let’s Family that will be delivered when your baby is 4 to 6 months old. You’ll need to register on their website, the photo shown on the page is just an example of products that could be included.
On their dedicated website, simply choose your region in Spain, a pick-up point (the list includes most Toys R Us stores) and your email address. You’ll receive a message in order to confirm your details and then a voucher to take along to collect the gift set. Each month different articles are available, however sets are limited to one per person. When you pick up the gift set make sure that you take along some identification as the voucher will have your name on it.
El Corte Ingles
In order to get your gift set you’ll have to register and attend a talk given in one of the centres shown on the list on their website.
