On my recent trip to the USA, I noticed more than ever all of the French-themed items in just about every shopping category. Obviously France is a pretty cool place, so t-shirts with French words, mugs with the Eiffel Tower and even French-themed jewelry are all hugely popular. So here’s my roundup of French gifts from all over the internet. Grab a holiday gift for your favorite Francophile!
French gifts & Paris gift ideas
Picking out the perfect French gift for that special someone on your list isn’t easy, so let me give you some French inspiration if you’re shopping for a Francophile.
For the accessory lover
No Francophile’s Christmas is complete without something from Ladurée. Start with a box of macarons and then give her something to remember them by with this signature key chain that looks great decorating a bag. It comes in a bunch of color options and looks fabulous in person, too. I saw it last week in the store and this tops my French gift list for a reason!
This Francophile Scene tote bag in the Oui In France shop is now eco-friendly! Pick up the above design to tote a few things around town in style. The same design also comes on t-shirts, mugs, and more. FYI, I designed everything in my shop and this colorful Paris-inspired design is my favorite.
Instead of weighing down Paris’s Pont des Arts bridge with your love lock, get this gorgeous Lock & Love necklace to show your devotion to Paris instead. You can never go wrong with jewelry.
When it rains
