Belgium gifts for large budgets
#1 DIY Belgian beer gifts
I know, I know. I said I would give a list of 25 unique Belgium gifts beyond beer and chocolate. But come on! I had to include something beer-related when talking about Belgium gifts.
Plus, this DIY Belgian golden ale beer brewing kit does go beyond the Belgian beer gifts, because they actually get to make their own golden ale!
And no worries, the kit is enough for one gallon of beer, so I am sure there will be a bit left for you to try as well!
#2 Belgium-themed alcohol dispenser
This is probably one of the most random Belgium gifts on this list. But then again, one of the most famous tourist sights in Belgium is also a very random statue, so it makes perfect sense.
It’s an alcohol dispenser in the shape of the famous Manneke Pis statue.
In case you are wondering why a little boy urinating is something typical Belgian. And before you may think it’s acceptable to urinate where you please in Belgium, it’s not.
Manneke Pis is a famous statue in Brussels, so that’s why you may find more souvenirs like this in Belgium. Though, I think this alcohol dispenser is a rather unique one, making it one of the best Belgium gifts for alcohol drinkers!
#3 Belgian waffle maker
Whether you are looking for Belgium gifts for locals or for travelers who simply love Belgium, a waffle maker will make both happy!
In fact, a waffle maker will also make non-Belgium lovers happy because you get to make delicious Belgium waffles!
And perhaps if you are nice, they might even make one for you!
#4 Belgian board games
The game is about reconstructing the city of Tournay. It’s a strategic game, and if you are really into it, there are even extensions, so you will never get bored!
#5 Belgian-themed jigsaw puzzles
Jigsaw puzzles are a great way to pass the time while also practicing your problem-solving skills. And now you can even get them to work on their skills while also looking at their favorite country!
There are various Belgian-themed jigsaw puzzles, such as this one from Bruges. And no worries if the person you are getting this gift for is great with puzzles. The puzzle is available in 1014 pieces as well!
#6 Belgium gifts for Jacques Brel lovers
If you are looking for the perfect Belgium gifts for people who simply love Belgium music and in particular Jacques Brel, I found it!
Check out this cool Brel shirt, that comes in different sizes and models, so you can pick one that matches their style!
Oh, who is Jacques Brel? Well, you probably already guessed it, but he is a famous Belgian singer and musician from the sixties.
#7 Belgium-themed flask
This Belgium-themed flask is the perfect gift for people who love Belgium (but that’s why you’re on this page, so we can check that box), for people who love their drinks, and for people who are often traveling, hiking, or skiing and love to bring a bit a strong drink to stay warm!
Belgium gifts for the mid-budget
#8 Belgian chocolate gifts
Yes, Belgian chocolate gifts may not be the most unique Belgium gifts you can think of, I’ll admit. But everyone who loves Belgium loves their chocolate too! And that is exactly why this is such a great gift!
So if you are looking for the best gifts for chocolate lovers, these pralines Belgian chocolate gifts are exactly what you need.
#9 Belgium beer cap map
You wanted unique Belgian beer gifts, right? Well, I hope this Belgium map with beer caps matched your expectations.
The map looks super cool in their home, plus they get to fill it every time they open a bottle of beer. In other words, you are giving them a legitimate reason to be drinking beer. Because they have to decorate their home.
#10 Geometric Belgium wall art
Are you looking for Belgium gifts for someone who is obsessed with Belgium or a Belgian who moved abroad? Then this cool geometric map of Belgium is the perfect gift to decorate their homes!
The map comes in thirteen different colors, from black to green, you pick whichever matches their home. And no worries if you think this map is a bit too large for their home, it comes in the sizes S, M, and L, so you adjust to their preferences!
#11 Belgian beer guide
For anyone who is will travel to Belgium and or for anyone who simply loves Belgium beers, this good beer guide to Belgium beers is a great gift idea.
It does not only provide them with information about the different types of beers but also about where to taste them. Which breweries, bars, or cities are a must-visit for beer lovers.

#12 Belgian beer gifts scratch map
Alright, I promise, this is the last of the Belgium beer gift! But I just thought this Belgium beer scratch map was one of the coolest gifts you can get for someone who loves Belgium, traveling, and beer. So I had to include it!
The map displays some of the major breweries and beers in Belgium. So in case, they needed any inspiration on where to go next in Belgium, perhaps this map can help!
#13 Books about Belgium
Are you looking for Belgium gifts for someone who loves to read? Then I’ve selected a few awesome book options for you.
- What did you do in the war sister? By Dennis J. Turner. A book about the brave acts of Nazi resistance of catholic sisters in Belgium during the Nazi occupation.
- Belgium. Long united, long divided by Samuel Humes. This is the best book for people who are interested in Belgian history.
- Flawless: Inside the Largest Diamond Heist in History by Scott Andrew Selby. It tells the true story of one of a diamond heist in Antwerp, which was very successfully performed, except for the escape, which was not-so-successfully performed.
#14 Belgium guidebooks
Of course, this list of Belgium gifts cannot miss a guidebook to visiting Belgium. And Fodor’s Essential Belgium was recently updated to include all the latest information about opening hours, costs, and more.
For backpackers and budget travelers, the Lonely Planet is a better alternative. They don’t have one that’s solely about Belgium, so you will get Luxembourg as a bonus in this guidebook.
Guidebooks are always good gifts for people who are going to visit a certain country or who already fell in love with the country because the book will always be able to show them places they haven’t seen before!
Alternatively, you could get someone who is going to move to Belgium this survival guide to customs and etiquette in Belgium, so they will arrive fully prepared!
#15 Belgian city map posters
Do you know which city in Belgium your recipient is from, or which they absolutely loved? Then you can get these cool city map prints wall art!
You can get the maps of:
#16 Belgium-themed travel mug
City map posters are not the most useful Belgium gifts for people who are going to travel. So for them, you may want to get a travel mug in Belgium style, such as this one with the Brussels skyline.
Or check out Zazzle for more options.

Belgium gifts for smaller budgets
#17 Belgian-themed tote bags
Not all the items on this list make great gifts for Belgians who are going to travel, but this tote bag is an exception to that!
Tote bags are the easiest gift for travelers because they don’t take up much space or weight and they are super useful. And a big plus is the fact that they also save a lot of single-use plastic bags. Which in turn, is something the environment and sustainable travelers will like! (Check out these 25 sustainable travel gifts for more eco-friendly gift ideas).
#18 Belgian beer gifts
Okay, since I already started with the Belgian beer gifts, I will continue with another not-so-unique gift, a six-pack of Belgium beer.
But the good thing about Belgian beer gifts is that there is so much choice, and it’s (almost) all delicious. Such as Leffe Blond, which is honestly one of my favorite Belgium beers.
Though if a Blond, is not what your recipient likes, then check out Drizly for all the other options.
#19 Belgian gifts: Keychain
Keychains are another one of those super easy gifts for Belgians who are going to travel! Just as the tote bags, they are small and light. Plus they also serve as a small reminder of the place they are from or the place they love!
#20 Belgian gifts: cookbooks
People who love Belgium and miss Belgian food will surely love any Belgian-themed cookbooks!
You can go for a classic cookbook that includes an overview of many different delicious recipes such as “The Taste of Belgium”. Or a cookbook that also includes delicious waffles to help with their waffle maker, such as “Belgian Style recipes”.
Or the Everybody Eats Well In Belgium cookbook.

Belgium may not be famous for its enormous skylines, but that doesn’t mean it’s not pretty.
Check out this Brussels skyline poster to decide for yourself!

#23 Belgian gifts: socks
I think socks or one of the most underrated gifts for travelers, especially if they reflect a country the person loves! And that is exactly why I included these Belgium-inspired socks on this list of Belgium gifts!
Socks are easy to take when traveling, plus it’s a great subtle way of wearing something from your home country or a country you love, without making it incredibly obvious.
Some people enjoy walking around with “I love Brussels hoodies”, whereas others prefer subtle items, such as these cute socks.
#24 Belgium soccer gifts: Red devils
Soccer is big in Europe, including in Belgium. The national team of Belgium is called the red devils, so if you are looking for gifts for soccer fans, get them something red devil-related, such as this scarf. If you have a larger budget, the national shirt is also a great gift.
