French Gift Ideas for the Ladies


1) Tea: Mariage Frères or Dammann Frères

Both of these French brands make amazing, high quality tea & sell them in beautifully presented tins, boxes, or bags.  One bag of tea is about 8 €, and a tin is about 15 €.

Mariage Frères can easily be found at Galeries Lafayette Maison : 35 Boulevard Haussmann, 75009 Paris.

Or you can visit one of their many boutiques

Dammann Frères can be found at the Marché de Noel on the Champs-Elysées or at one of their 4 boutiques.  Here’s the address for their store at Place des Vosges : 15 Place des Vosges, 75004 Paris.

2) Candles: Diptyque or La Belle Meche

La Belle Meche is a really fun brand that I found at Galeries Lafayette Maison (35 Boulevard Haussmann, 75009 Paris). Their medium sized candles are 24 € which is a reasonable price considering they offer unique scents and neat packaging.

Diptyque is a more classy brand and thus more expensive.  A small candle at Dyptique is 24 €. But their scents are amazing (My fav is Mimosa!) and they do a great job at gift wrapping. These can be found at Galeries Lafayette’s main store : 40 Boulevard Haussmann, 75009 Paris.

3) Chanel Nail Polish


Here’s the trick: You need to go to a Chanel boutique! A Chanel nail polish isn’t as nice unless it’s all wrapped up in their signature paper and put in a chic little Chanel bag. Remember, you’re paying for the name.  Might as well get your money’s worth.  They have a boutique at Galeries Lafayette : 40 Boulevard Haussmann, 75009 Paris.

4) L’Occitane en Provence body wash

L’Occitane products are great little French gifts for her.  How about a relaxing shower gel for only 15 € ?

They have many shops in Paris but here’s the address for the one in the 9th arrondissement : 8 Rue Halévy, 75009 Paris, France.

Aromatherapy body wash? Yes please!

5) Jewelry from the French brand Agatha

Although usually on the more expensive side, Agatha does offer some really nice bracelets for under 30 .

Boutique at Galeries Lafayette : 40 Boulevard Haussmann, 75009 Paris.
