Playing with Rembrandt
Planning an evening of old-fashioned entertainment? Try the most famous painting by Rembrandt as a jigsaw puzzle. See the Night's Watch with its beautiful light and accents grow when you put the 1000 pieces in place. Fortunately, the puzzle is significantly smaller than the original painting, so it will probably fit in someone's living room.

Perhaps the tastiest Dutch treat is the stroopwafel, a thin waffle with caramel inside. This design tin contains eight delicious stroopwafels made from only the best quality raw ingredients, without unnecessary additives. Will you buy this traditional treat as a gift? Or... we fully understand if you just keep it for yourself.
Let us introduce you to Frans Banninck Cocq and Lieutenant Willem van Ruytenburch in miniature. This duo seems to have stepped right out of Rembrandt’s The Night Watch into the world of Playmobil. These three different sets are a great introduction to art for a young audience. But let's face it, you don't have to be a kid to play with Playmobil.
This is the perfect gift for every whisky or rum lover. The Snippers bottle contains wood chips from used Scotch whisky barrels. These wood chips slowly release their flavour when you add jenever (an Amsterdam classic!) or vodka, for instance. As the weeks go by you will see your whisky take on an increasingly deep colour. It's like ageing your drink in a wooden barrel!
The gift that’s a dozen toys in one. The Foooty, designed by Amsterdam-based concept agency Apollo 11, is a foldable, flexible ball made for rugby, football, frisbee and even juggling – the perfect toy for kids who love to play outside. Foooties are sold in packs of flat plastic parts that easily interlock, letting creative minds construct their own imaginative 3D toys.
