Traditional Dutch Father’s Day gifts on the cheap

Father’s day is right around the corner and luckily, gifts are more affordable this year.

The most traditional Dutch Father’s Day presents, like tools or books, are cheaper than last year, according to Statistics Netherlands.

Prices of camping equipment and sports gear, on the other hand, e.g. barbecues or tents rose by 3.4 percent. Traditional gifts like cosmetic products for men (aftershaves or deodorants) were 1.2 percent more expensive, only just above the general price increase level.

Tools decreased most in price, but beer gift baskets are also cheaper than last year (3.3 percent). Prices of other gifts also fell. Prices for men’s clothing items and Blu-Ray disks and DVDs declined by 2.8 and by 3.1 percent respectively.
