Oh, oh, what have we had a lovely late summer! Especially in the months of September and October we are treated to a few nice days with a warm autumn sun. But unfortunately everything comes to an end. The nice weather makes way for the colder autumn. Of course, autumn also has its charm. We can light the candles inside again and snuggle on the sofa under a blanket. In addition, nature is also beautiful in autumn. The leaves of the trees change color and the pine cones will soon fall again. But, autumn also means that you have to make the garden winter-ready. Leaves clearing, pruning plants and mowing for the last time. Garden ropes are therefore a must this season. Why? Read our blog!
If you want to give a gift to someone who does not live in the Netherlands, what do you buy? You probably think of liquorice, cheese, syrup waffles or tulips. These are, of course, typically Dutch products that are also delicious or smell delicious. But unfortunately these products are only temporary. When they are on or off, the receiver has nothing left. That is why it is all the more fun to give lasting souvenirs, something that the recipient really has something to offer. But what do you give? We do have an idea though. How about our nice Delft blue souvenirs? These traditional Dutch products are great fun to give as a gift or to buy for yourself. Because that is also possible!
Playing with a Dutch wooden puzzle is fun and very educational for children. They have a lot to offer here in different areas. It is great for fine motor skills in the first place. The small pieces are picked up by a button and have to be placed in the shape. It is also very good for learning to recognize different forms. Some of our puzzles have a Dutch theme which is of course very nice. On it, for example, wooden shoes, a windmill and tulips are depicted. We also have a wooden puzzle clock for our older children that can be used both as a puzzle and for learning to watch.
A real Dutch look is not complete without a farmer's handkerchief with a tie souvenirs clog. Of course that does not mean that this always looks the same. There are many variations to make it fun to wear this even every day. Of course, this is only done by most people on certain occasions such as carnival. A peasant handkerchief with tie souvenirs clog is worn around the neck and the souvenirs clog ensures that the handkerchief does not have to be knotted. This is because you thread through the hole so that the ends stay together. Of course, these handkerchiefs are worn in many more ways and used as only around the neck.
Een echt Hollandse look is niet compleet zonder boerenzakdoek met dasklompje. Dat betekent natuurlijk niet dat dit er altijd hetzelfde uitziet. Er zijn veel variaties mee te maken wat het leuk maakt om dit zelfs elke dag te dragen. Uiteraard wordt dit door de meeste mensen alleen nog maar gedragen met bepaalde gelegenheden zoals carnaval. Een boerenzakdoek met dasklomp wordt om de nek gedragen waarbij het klompje dan zorgt dat de zakdoek niet geknoopt hoeft te worden. Deze rijgt u namelijk door het gat heen waardoor de uiteindes bij elkaar blijven. Natuurlijk worden deze zakdoeken op nog veel meer manieren gedragen en gebruikt als alleen rond de nek.
