One of the biggest challenges of living abroad is being away from family and friends during the holidays. While we can’t bring all of your loved-ones to Belgium, we can help you send a little bit of Belgium to them. Every year, we round up our favourite Belgium gifts online, sold through global retailer Amazon. Don’t live in Belgium? Don’t worry. This list includes great Belgium souvenir ideas (in case you forgot someone on your list), our favourite chocolate and Belgian beer gifts (great for gifting to yourself too), and even gifts ideas for your favourite Belgian.

Why We Use Amazon

Of course, you could look for gifts to buy in Belgium and ship them abroad. But have you seen the cost of international shipping in Belgium? bpost charges €16.40+ to ship up to 5kg to adjacent countries, €32.80 for the rest of the EU (and the USA), and €65.60 to ship elsewhere! We shipped gifts our first year and then stopped. It was too expensive.

So we thought about Amazon. Amazon’s extensive catalogue and free shipping to many locations is a top choice for many people during the holidays. We use them often personally. But what sort of Belgian gift ideas are for sale on Amazon? Apparently a lot!

How to shop this list

If you click the photo of the product, it will take you to the store closest to your location (for Belgium, this will generally be France). However, we know when you ship gifts, you don’t always shop at the store closest to you, so below the photo, you’ll find the direct link to the UK, US, and French stores if the product is available. Keep in mind, not all Amazon stores carry all of the same products. Particularly when it comes to things like Belgian beer gift packs and Belgian chocolate gift baskets, particular options are only available in one store.

Prices vary widely on many items from store to store. It is worth price checking via the different links to get the best price.

Pro Tip: Amazon’s products use the same URL structure (and product codes) across all their stores. So if you see a product on Amazon.com, just change the ‘.com’ to your preferred store (e.g. .de) to see if it is available there.

If you click on any of the Amazon links in this post, we get a small commission. It doesn’t cost you a penny extra but it gives us a few cents to help cover our expenses. See the end of the post for a full disclosure statement.

Cooking is a big part of any holiday, so why not add some Belgian cuisine? Have you ever wanted to learn how to make stoofvlees (Flemish beef stew) or maybe try cooking with beer? Here are some books which are sure to whet your appetite. I’ve also thrown in some kitchen gadgets including a waffle maker because you can’t have a holiday without waking up to waffles. Right?

Belgian Beer Gifts

Belgian Beer Gifts

What would a Belgian gift list be without beer? I highly recommend the Good Beer Guide and All Belgian Beers books. They are both on my bookshelf, and I use them frequently to better understand Belgian beer. I’ve also highlighted the Kwak beer glass as its unique design makes it my favourite Belgian beer glass. And honestly, who doesn’t want to receive a Belgian beer gift box?

Apologies to our American readers, Amazon US doesn’t ship beer. I know! It’s a sad state of affairs. However, they do have beer… soap! You’ll smell nice and have beer. It’s win-win, yes!? The reviews all seem positive about it. Please don’t try to melt it down and drink it though. Final thought: if you washed someone’s mouth out with this soap, would it be a good or a bad thing?

Gifts for Belgians

Our Best Gifts for Belgians

Know a Belgian? For such a small country, we are constantly amazed at how often we run into Belgians around the world.  Of course, you can send gifts to Belgium with Amazon as well. You can buy a Belgian many of the products listed above, but for some, it’s just impossible to find the right gift. My recommendation is to appeal to their subtle humour and patriotism. Or stick to buying them some beer or chocolate.

    Thank you!! This is so helpful. I had no idea some of these products were available on Amazon. Also, great tip about the URLs and product codes. P.S. I have “The Food and Cooking of Belgium” cookbook and would highly recommend it!

      I want BOTH of those cookbooks! But I have too many to scan right now as it is. I must be strong 🙂
