If you’ve read my blog for a while you might recognize some of the items from this list of gifts for Francophiles available online. I pick things that I really love and believe in and I know will be cherished year after year. The list is compiled throughout the year and I hope it provides a little shopping inspiration either for yourself or for a loved one!
It’s hard to believe that the holiday season is almost upon us. A few years ago I made a list of French Advent Calendars available online and have mostly updated it for 2023. Many of these calendars will sell out, so if you see something you like don’t hesitate to order it! When in Paris, two of my favorite places to shop for Advent Calendars are La Grande Épicerie and Galeries Lafayette Gourmet.
I truly believe more is more when it comes to the Christmas tree so I always keep my eyes out for festive ornaments. Anything French or Paris-inspired is always a must for me. I’ve rounded up over 40 French Christmas ornaments available online to add to your collections!
If you know me or even have just been following me on Instagram for a while I’m sure it’s pretty obvious that I’m a Christmas fanatic. I love everything about the season from the music to the foods, general cheer, gatherings, and of course the decor. I’m so excited to share my second vintage French Christmas collection on La Porte Bonheur. The collection includes a selection of vintage French Christmas ornaments, linens, and accessories.
I’m from Texas, so anytime there’s a chance for snow in the forecast anywhere I get excited. Snow in Paris is rare, but when it does happen it’s completely magical. Last Saturday the stars aligned and I got a chance to take a brief but wonderful walk through Paris in the snow.
