Shopping at this time of year has something magical with all those lights. You will not get bored of all those beautifully decorated shop windows and the choice of beautiful (Christmas) gifts is endless. If you want to combine your Christmas shopping with a real day out, take the tram or bike to historic Delft . Along the cozy canals and streets of this city you will find nice boutiques and small, original shops where you can enjoy shopping.
The big advantage of Delft is that everything is within walking distance and there are several shopping areas : each shopping area has its own charm and character. We recommend a number of areas (and shops!) that you definitely don’t want to miss. A nice bonus when shopping in Delft: you temporarily save for free parking. Read on the last page how to do that!
Hip shops along the canal
The Market is the ideal place to get presents and souvenirs. At Milo Design Gifts you will find special gifts and at UNFOLD you will find nice clothes and shoes. At Madame Blue Delftware, Heinen Delfts Blauw and at House of Vermeer you will find traditional Delft Blue souvenirs and beautiful interior items. And for coffee and tea lovers: at Simon Levelt they offer a large (and constantly changing) range.
Recommended: drop by at De Salamander. A drugstore and herbal store decorated in the style of the beginning 1900 already still has the good of the past. It’s like stepping into that time yourself! Drink a nice warm cup of coffee afterwards at Het Konings Huys or grab a beer in one of the nice bars.
