Francophile Gift Guide

This gift guide doesn’t necessarily have to be just for the holidays, you can refer back to this to help you find a gift for anyone who loves the French lifestyle and the Francophile in your life.

Francophile Gift Guide

Gift guides are back for the holidays! I love browsing gift guides because it helps me narrow down gifts from an overwhelming online selection. I hope this gift guide helps you find the perfect gift for the Francophile in your life even if that means you! Don’t miss the opportunity to gift yourself something.

Bon Appetit Tea Towel Green $32. I have this in two colors and love it. It’s a simple way to Frenchify any meal or kitchen.

SomMailer French Wines delivered to your door. I recommend the C’est la Vie collection which is $99 for three wines. Each box is delivered with cards describing the pairing option, recipes, and flavor notes.

Madeleine Pan $33 Madeleines are one of my favorite French sweet treats. It is a must for a Francophile kitchen.

Gaspard Sezane Sweater. It runs a little big. I still take my normal size S. It can be worn two ways and it is one of the best-selling sweaters from Sezane and very French.

Bordier Butter. This isn’t cheap once you factor in overnight shipping but if you have been to France, you know this is the good butter! It is one of the luxuries you may not buy yourself but will appreciate so much when someone gives you this as a gift.

Paris City Pressed Map part of the West Elm shop Local brands $265

Angelina Hot Chocolate Mix $44. Perfect for the cold days ahead. This is the hot chocolate that so many love in Paris. I have known about this spot since my first visit in 2003.

Le Marais Classic Bake at Home Croissants. $60 I love the idea of making these around the holidays and the kitchen smelling just like a boulangerie in Paris.

Diptyque Paris Candle $105. I have this at home and love it. It has a Fall/Winter smell that is great for cozy nights at home.

French champagne coupe $60. Perfect for toasting even the smallest occasions.

Bisous Notecards $30 Customize these notecards just for you. I have a set and love writing notes on them to friends.

French Macaron Baking Kit $35. I love the founders behind Red Velvet. Macarons are much easier if you have this guide.

Tout Salad Plate $62. These are a splurge but if they fit their budget, they are adorable! I would love to have a few.

Eiffel Tower Cookie Cutter $5 My neighbor used a similar one to make Henri’s treats and they were adorable!

Christmas Time in the city mug. $14 This sold out so quickly last year and they restocked and sold out again. Grab it quickly!

When it comes to gifts, I prefer to give something to someone because I know they will find joy in it or it wouldn’t be something they were planning to buy themselves. I don’t always love buying gifts just around a certain holiday or celebration.

You could say one of my love languages is unexpected gifts.

  1. You got me into Sezane’s Gaspard or Leon jumpers, but none of the photos shows the length of the jumpers. Does it come down just to the waistline or even lower? Please let me know!

    • The Gaspard is longer, I do a little tuck in the front. The Leon is longer as well. I have a long torso so this is KEY. Some of their sweaters do crop higher but I haven’t seen any this season. I tried a bunch on recently and loved them all! The Mia and the Alma are also longer. I hope this helps!
