Borrowers in The Netherlands 🇳🇱

Moving across to the land of cheese and stroopwaffels, it is good to know that those are not the only things the Dutch are passionate about!!

Coffee is another passion that the Dutch have (and share with many other nations), so if you are looking for a unique gift for that special someone, why not visit Back to Black coffee roasters where you can purchase not just the coffee itself, but also coffee gear, coffee gift boxes, coffee training courses, coffee brewing kits and even coffee subscriptions, to have a variety of coffees delivered straight to their door, regularly! If you are perhaps looking for something new to sit on, in order to drink that delicious home brewed coffee, why not visit MaximaVida for some beautiful indoor and outdoor hand made furniture, which also makes a great ‘spoil yourself’ gift that you can enjoy time and time again.

If you are still stuck with a gift idea, then you could never go wrong with the timeless gift of a watch from Burker Watches which is bound to not only put you in the recipients’ good books but also ensure they are never late for your coffee dates!

We hope you liked our selection of ideas for your gifts. You can both bring joy to your family and friends and at the same time support local companies and make a difference!

We wish you a very happy holiday season!
