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 – you should always include yourself on that list!
That being said, it’s still fun to receive gifts, and especially gifts from France. I think this list of Valentine’s Day gift ideas for Francophiles would make just about anyone smile. Check it out and see what you think!
Le Creuset ‘Bon Appetit’ Dutch Oven
My grandmother gave me a Le Creuset dutch oven for Christmas last year and I use it every chance I get. These red and white dutch ovens with gold knobs that say ‘Bon Appetit’ are just about the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. Bonus points if you buy one for your Valentine and then cook something inside it!
Baccarat Rouge 540 Extrait de Parfum
This Baccarat perfume is my top splurge pick for a Valentine’s Day gift. It comes in a red crystal diamond shaped bottle and smells absolutely divine – Baccarat describes it as an “amber woody floral aura” – yes please! Plus, the scent really does last for a long time on your body thanks to the woody notes. While I don’t own it (yet), I cherish every sample I get.
Caudalíe Overnight Recovery Oil
One of my favorite nightly rituals is putting on this Caudalíe Overnight Recovery Oil – it feels so good on your skin and smells amazing. I like that it’s an oil but it doesn’t feel greasy or heavy. Buy one for your Valentine and one for yourself!
Ladurée ‘Juste Un Baiser’ Box of Macarons
Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas for Francophiles wouldn’t be complete without a macaron or twelve. Luckily, Laudrée offers worldwide shipping on their ‘Juste Un Baiser’ Valentine’s Day collection of macarons. How could you resist heart-shaped macarons that come in this adorable lip box?
Redline Pure Bracelet
This Redline Pure Bracelet would be such a sweet and simple addition to anyone’s wrist. Plus, who doesn’t want a diamond on Valentine’s Day? I’m partial to the red string with yellow gold, but the beauty of Redline is you can pick whichever combination you like.
Kusmi Rose Green Tea
My favorite way to start the morning is by making a cup of Kusmi Rose Green Tea and getting back in bed to drink it. Although I don’t get to do this every morning, it’s definitely a treat when I do. Valentine’s Day is the perfect occasion to start a rose tea in bed habit.
