So, our vacation is over, but we enjoyed every minute it lasted. We're back in business as usual, although order processing time might increase with 1 or 2 days, due to the fact that we have to catch up on orders that were placed during the time that the shop was closed.

In other news, you may or may not have noticed that we did not send out a newsletter this month, but we will send one out as soon as possible, with all the latest products, recipes, and tips.

We are also working on a very new project, which is currently marked as "Top Secret," but as soon as we open, we will notify our mailing list subscribers and they will also receive a fantastic "Grand Opening Offer!"
We finally had a chance to photograph some of our new gift baskets!

This is our signature basket; the "Typical Dutch Stuff" Basket, which contains over 10kg worth of typically Dutch products, as well as candles and a towel set. This truly makes a nice gift for anyone; for birthdays, parties, weddings, or just to say "Thank You."



Another version of the "Typical Dutch Stuff Basket." It is not wrapped in this photograph, so it's not the final version. This one is more a "men's basket" as it does not contain a towel set or fragranced candles, but a beautiful photoframe.



Both baskets contain approx. 10kg worth of typically Dutch products.
The baskets itself and the products may vary upon availability. Also, different products will be added throughout the various seasons.

Another great basket is the "Dutch Cuisine", which is shown below. This is a perfect introduction to Dutch Cuisine, as it contains all the necessary products a (Dutch) person couldn't live without! From licorice to stroopwaffels; it's all in there!



We always welcome custom gift baskets for any occasion! Just email us at info@typicaldutchstuff.com for more information.

Also, check out our Press Release on our gift baskets;

We have loads of exciting news for those who are contemplating whether or not to buy a single serve coffee maker, like for instance a Senseo or a Bosch Gustino. Both of those brands have released new (somewhat funky, in the case of the Senseo) colors. We like them, and hopefully you will too!

All of our Coffee Makers are delivered with 3 bags of Senseo coffee pods, and the regular Senseo machines even include 2 Senseo compatible cups, so you can enjoy your fresh cup of coffee as soon as you receive it!

Now, if only we had our own brand of Coffee Pods, but who knows what the future brings..
For our Non-European customers;
Please note that some products, such as our stroopwaffels, and various other cookies and biscuits have a relatively short shelf life, often around 2 months. Please keep in mind that Economy shipping can take up to 8 weeks to arrive, depending on your location. This means that those products that have a limited shelf life, will arrive only shortly before the expiration date, or in the worst case, when the product has already expired.

Please keep this fact in mind when you order products which have a short shelf life, as we cannot take responsibility for products, which are shipped through Economy mail, that arrive past their expiration date.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at info@typicaldutchstuff.com

Thank you.
We have created a new advertisement which will be shown on various sites in the near future. The drawing was made by the talented Criz at Criz-Zone, who kindly gave us permission to use her wonderful art on our website.

This particular graphic will also be seen as a large banner on our site to promote the Summer Sale on our site somewhere in the next couple of weeks.

New Zwitsal Products



We have also added a few new Nijntje/Miffy products, all of them are unique and hard to find! We will be adding more of these products in the next few days.
We have the brand new Senseo Sweet Mandarin in stock and it can be ordered now!

We also have decided that when you order any Senseo, you will receive the free 3 bags of coffee pods that we always give, but also 2 Senseo compatible cups, so you can enjoy your fresh cup of coffee the minute you receive it.

Please keep in mind that when you order 6 bags of Senseo Kenya, Brazil, or Sumatra Coffee Pods, you will receive a FREE Douwe Egberts Guest Towel!
New Nijntje/Miffy Baby Collection at Typical Dutch Stuff


That's right! Over the next few days we'll be adding a whole new collection of Nijntje/Miffy products, including baby accessories! There will be a special introductory offer with limited availability, so check back often!

(On the picture you can see the new Nijntje/Miffy photoalbum which holds 100 photographs, plated with real silver)
IMPORTANT: We have decided to no longer offer Economy shipping for orders outside Europe which weigh less than 2kg. These orders cannot be traced and are not insured. (regulations of the Postal Services.) Therefore each order that is shipped without any proof of postage is a risk to us, as well as to the customer.

Orders that weigh more than 2kg can be shipped with Economy shipping, because these packages are automatically registered. We hope you understand our situation, because we feel this is best for us, as well as for the customer.

These changes will be effective from May 20th onwards.
We have added the newest Douwe Egberts Caffiato coffee blends to our website. They can't be found anywhere else yet, so be one of the first who is able to try these unique instant coffee mixes!

They come in a variety of 3 flavors; Speculations (Cappucino with Speculaas Spices and Crunchy Cinnamon Meringues), Ammm..Aretto (Tiramisu and Amaretto Biscuit Crunch), Oh Honey (Honey, Kardemom, Milk Chocolate Crisp), and Chockin' Orange (Orange Peel and Milk Chocolate Crisp).

Klene Licorice Giftset

Our Price: €8.99
We have noticed that some customers do not check the shipping adress they provide with us, and give us an incomplete adress. We have had several packages returned to us because of the apparent neglect of entering the correct information. We have decided to follow our own terms and to not re-ship the package at no cost or refund the entire order anymore, because the customer also has a certain responsibility in this matter. From now on, packages will only be re-shipped when the shipping costs are paid again, otherwise the package will not be shipped. We regret to have to state this, but in order to prevent this from happening again, we need to do something about it.
We have just heard the latest new regarding the Senseo coffeemakers; a brand new, limited edition will be released this month.

If you want to pre-order it (we expect them to be available around May 15th), then email us at info@typicaldutchstuff.com and we will reserve one of these unique machines for you! (You don't have to pay in advance, we will contact you as soon as we have them in stock and then you can decide whether or not you want one)

So, April already, and to celebrate the joy that is spring, we have found 2 delicious and unique coffee blends, which you can enjoy whilst sitting in the sun. They are not (yet) available through our website, because we first want to be able to offer them as a special gift for our customers.

The first blend is a gorgeous white chocolate coffee, made with 100% Arabica beans, which means you get the best quality beans. The second blend is a scrumptious Vanilla and Nut coffee, also made with 100% Arabica beans. Of course, we had to test them first to see if they're really as good as they say..and trust us..they are! We have several of these sets (retails at approx €15.00) to offer you.

All you have to do is place an order over €50.00 (excluding shipping costs) and type "coffeeplease" in the message field at the payment screen. That's all you have to do, and at the end of this month, the lucky winners will be notified through email.

As you might have noticed we have moved the Website Updates to a different page, because we felt that not everybody might be interested in this, so we should not put it on our main page.

There have been quite some drastic changes backstage at Typical Dutch Stuff. We have given the entire main page a makeover, because we feel that the new style instantly shows what we have to offer. Also, when you add something to the cart, then a popup screen will appear, which confirms that you've added it to the cart and gives you the option to continue shopping or to checkout.

We've also added quite a few new products; Senseo Starter Set (a set which included ALL Senseo flavors (178 pods in total), the Typical Dutch Stuff Gift Basket (a basket which contains loads of typically Dutch products ), the Basket for Moms (makes an excellent Mother's Day gift!), and loads of new Senseo gift sets (with matching coffee cups and more!)

Our newsletter will be emailed next week; keep an eye open for the freebie!
We've decided to add the Website Updates again, because it makes it easier for all customers to see what has been changed and what has been added. Most of this this information is also included in our Newsletter, but the special offers and freebies are solely in the newsletter, so you'll have to sign up for the special codes.

Over the past few days we've added several new products; Senseo Gift Packages, Gift Baskets, Rittersport and Milka chocolate, and new Coffee Makers.
