What to buy: Well, there are a lot of things to choose for a souvenir... for example, the famous and funny dutch shoes named :"clogs", or some porcelain from Delft. If you're more "naughty" you can buy some Ephedrin pills or one of the natural ecstasy's pills, marijuana cakes, Marijuana lipsticks you can find them EVEN in the souvenirs shops....
Or you can buy any kind of souvenir wich make some references of tulips, windmills, cheese, cows, drugs, Red Light District... It's veeeery obvious but also very Dutch!.
What to pay: Try to make all the inquires before to buy souvenirs, obviously and like every big city, don't buy in the touristic areas... everything is more expensive and yo'll notice the differences of the prices....
