Now more than ever, I think Valentine’s Day should be less about grand gestures and more about doing heartfelt things to honor the people you love, whether that’s a friend, a family member, a partner, or yourself. I created this list of Valentine’s Day gift ideas for Francophiles last year and updated it this year. There’s a little something for everyone – I think these French-inspired gifts (all available online) would make the day extra special!

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!
The Best Flowers on Rue du Bac
Rue du Bac is one of my favorite streets in Paris. It’s filled with everything I love about the city from cafés and restaurants to chocolate shops and patisseries, great shopping, and truly so much more. One of my weekly Paris traditions is buying the flowers on Rue du Bac from the best “shop,” Sanjina Fleurs.
French Christmas Ornaments Available Online
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. Some of my favorite Christmas ornaments in Paris are at Astier de Villatte. I’ve rounded up over 40 French Christmas ornaments available online to add to your collections!
French Advent Calendars Available Online 2022
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 started updating it for 2022. 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.
