Shopping in Spa - authentic goods, best outlets, malls and boutiques

Spa is known all over the world as a resort for everyone who wants to relax and spend a holiday with health benefits.

If you are faced with the task to buy a lot of inexpensive gifts to everyone, it is worth visiting a chocolate shop like Jean-Loup Legrand-Artisan Chocolatier. It's no secret that Belgians just love chocolate. They consider it almost a national delicacy. In addition, the praline was invented in Belgium. It's almond filling for the chocolates. It is incredibly popular today. You can find both regular milk bars and chocolate with praline, nuts, buttercream, dried fruits and much more in Spa. Chocolate from companies such as Neuhaus, Pierre Marcolini, Godiva and Leonidas are the best. However, less famous manufacturers also produce a quality product.

If you want a souvenir was not only delicious but also beautiful, then look for boxes with views of Spa. Some unusual delicacy, like dried fruits in chocolate, can be purchased as a gift to friends.

Waffles are another incredibly tasty souvenir. You can find them with fillings of berries, condensed milk, chocolate or fruit, cheese, and even fish. You can buy regular waffles in any local supermarket, or look for a beautiful souvenir packaging. But keep in mind that real Belgian waffles do not have a long shelf life. So it is better to buy them right on the day of departure. If you need a treat that will be stored for a long time, you should pay attention to local cheeses.
Everyone knows that France, Holland, and Switzerland are more associated with cheeses. However, Belgian Orval, Remuda, and Limburger are considered to be the pride of Spa. Cheeses from Brugge Oud are very popular. But you can find products of dozens of other brands in Spa stores. If you want, you can buy souvenir sets of several different types of cheese or just a piece of a certain size in a vacuum package. If you choose soft or odorous cheeses, remember that their shelf life is less. Also, excessive odor of cheeses can cause a refusal to take your luggage on board.

This is a local strong alcoholic drink. It has become the ancestor of British gin. It is produced on the basis of juniper berries, barley malt and wheat grains with the addition of herbs and spices. You can also buy a small jar of d'Anvers liqueur.
Local lace is also very popular. Napkins, tablecloths, and towels are expensive. But they are of very high quality. Tapestries and bags, pillows and bed linen with tapestry inserts are very popular. The local porcelain is also very beautiful. Both abstraction and views of the town and surroundings can be depicted on porcelain products. Do not miss the opportunity to buy something from the local cosmetics. A variety of care products based on natural ingredients, oils for relaxing and warming massage, great shampoos, and hair balsams are sold in Spa today.
