I’m excited to unveil my second annual gift guide devoted to fellow Francophiles! This is now my favorite gift guide to put together – and especially this year as it has allowed me to find items that will transport us all to France during a year we’ve not been able to visit. This guide features the best French-inspired gifts from favorite brands and small businesses alike. Hope you find something perfect for the Francophile in your life to transport them to the City of Lights!
Not sure what a Francophile is? It is someone who loves all things French! Culture, recipes, traditions – you name it. And after all what’s not to love about being a Francophile? I first fell in love with the French way of life and the country’s food and culture when I was just a little girl and my love for the country has only grown since then. You can find all my content that’s dedicated to my love of Paris here.
Gifts for the Francophiles:
This one of my favorite purchases of 2020! Such a quality piece from a famed French brand that you’ll have forever making it a generous, timeless gift for any Francophile.
While 2020 may have turned out to be the year of bread, I have a suspicion that 2021 may be the year of pie. I just bought this one so I can attempt to make my first pie!
These are my favorite cooking classes to take when I am in Paris and they’re hurting having to have been closed for so much of this year. But they offer virtual classes so get a gift certificate to get your French foodie fix!
