Shopping for Gifts
De Bode is possibly the most attractive giftshop and home furnishings store in Zandvoort located in Kerkstraat in the centre of the resort. The store opened more than 15 years ago and consists of the ground floor and basement with many contemporary collections of objects to adorn your house. It’s the ideal store to find either a present for someone or if you are into interior design. In this store there is always a strong possibility that you will find something a little more interesting and different. The proprietors are fluent in English, German and Dutch.

A Traditional Dutch shop
If however you are looking for a really typical Dutch shop (and let’s be honest, what could be more typically Dutch than a cheese shop?) then look no further than the Kaashoek in Haltestraat. Here you will find wonderfully large cheeses and all manner of specialist foods, pickles, breads, meats and wines. There are often samples on the counter for you to try. This writer has often bought specially made up cheese baguettes from this lovely little shop.
