To celebrate the Adriaen van de Velde exhibition at Dulwich Picture Gallery, we are offering a range of Dutch-inspired Christmas gift ideas. From traditional Stroop waffles to replica Delft tiles, there’s something for everyone.
Bespoke lambswool scarf £65
This limited edition lambswool scarf has been created exclusively for Dulwich Picture Gallery by British textile duo Wallace Sewell. Its design is inspired by van de Velde’s masterful landscape painting, The Hut.
Pocket landscape vase £65
These hand-thrown ceramic vessels have been created for the Gallery by Sheffield-based artist Penny Withers. Their organic forms and painterly glazes reflect the hues and shapes found in many of Adriaen van de Velde’s works.
Velvet cushions £75
A striking collection of sumptuous spray-dyed velvet cushions by premier interior design studio, Harlequin. Available in a range of luxurious shades, the intense colour palate and tonal gradations are reminiscent of the painterly landscape.
Scented Winter Candles by Shearer £11
Shearer Candles are the UK’s longest established lifestyle candle company. Artisanal quality, attention to detail and craftsmanship still underpin everything they do. Their inspiration comes from the colours, forms and fragrances found in the landscape.
17th Century Dutch Colour Chart notebook set £12.95 and greetings cards £2.50
In 1692, during the heady days of the Dutch Golden Age, a well-to-do man in Delft painstakingly created what is possibly the very first colour chart in existence – almost 300 years before the Pantone Colour Guide was launched. These beautiful stationery products feature excerpts from this unique archive.

These embroidered Christmas decorations are handmade using traditional techniques and feature iconic emblems of Dutch heritage.
