Typical Dutch gift ideas for Mother’s Day

Sunday, May 12th is Mother’s Day in the Netherlands – that special day when you can show mum just how much you care. If you’re not sure what to buy your mum or partner for Mother’s Day this year, then why not browse our typical Dutch gift ideas for Mother’s Day for inspiration?

1. Lief! gift set

The indulgent range of body care products by traditional Dutch brand, Lief! are actually sold as baby care products in the Netherlands, but as they’re incredibly soft and gentle and leave skin smelling so good, they’re also extremely popular with Dutch mums.  And they make an absolutely ideal present for Dutch mothers who live abroad, especially those who are feeling a little homesick for Dutch clogs, tulips and other national treasures. Holland at Home stocks a wide range of Lief! products, all in cheerful gift sets, including the Lief! Baby Set Minis and Lief! Baby Set Special.

2. Rituals gift box

The more adventurous Dutch mother (and those that have emigrated almost certainly fall into this category) might prefer an alluring Rituals gift set, such as the delicately fragrant Rituals Scented Secrets Gift Box, the exotic Rituals Ayurveda Gift Box or the invigorating Rituals Hammam Gift Box.

3. Typical Dutch products

You don’t need to wait until Christmas to send your mum a hamper brimming with typical Dutch products – a Dutch hamper also makes the perfect Mother’s Day present, particularly if your mum is craving a taste from home. At Holland at Home you can create your very own gift hamper filled with traditional Dutch goodies such as Peijnenburg Breakfast Cake, De Ruijter Chocolate Sprinkles, a tin of Unox Hearty Pea Soup and a pack of Venco Droptoppers. Of course you can always include a few of your personal favourites and turn Mother’s Day into a party for two!

4. Dutch souvenirs

Dutch clog slippersTypical Dutch souvenirs make a delightfully nostalgic gift for any mum with links to the Netherlands. If you have neither the time nor the inclination to visit Holland, you can still order your mum a selection of Dutch souvenirs online at Holland at Home. You can choose from a fun range that includes warm and cosy Dutch clog slippers, a brightly coloured Dutch cycle bag or a traditional Dutch tea towel set. And even if your mum or partner doesn’t enjoy football, she’ll still be tickled pink with a Holland hat with bells and other Orange stuff.

5. Dutch liqueurs

Plenty of Dutch mothers enjoy the occasional glass of Dutch liqueur. Zwarte Kip Advocaat is a popular choice for many mums and makes a delicious addition to Dutch desserts too. Coebergh Classic Gin, with its deep red colour and velvety smooth flavour, is also guaranteed to go down a treat!
