Gift Guide Under $50

1. Paris 2024 Calendar $35 and $55. The calendar takes you through a Year in Paris with different photographs for each month for different seasons. The photographs can be cropped and framed for a 2 in 1 gift. You can use these affordable frames to hang them in your home.

2. Lululemon Crossbody Bag $38 I finally surrendered this bag, and it’s a game changer for walks with Henri. My hands are free to walk him and carry a coffee or do anything else I need to do. In France, they are trending with the same style but a different brand available at Merci and refer to them as Banane bags for the shape of a banana.

3. Letter Mug Sézane $40 The original style sold out, but this is also a popular and stylish one. It holds 12 oz of tea or coffee.

4. Bodum French Press $50 We used ours throughout the lockdown. It is a great luxury and makes a delicious cup of coffee. You must have a little patience and skill to master this, but you will love it once you do.

5. The Paris Guide is $30 – $35 for someone heading to Paris this coming year. Let the planning begin with hidden gems, where to stay, neighborhood guides, tips, and places to eat. Available in a digital and printed version.

6. Crate and Barrel Throw $50 It comes in multiple colors. A great gift for the homebody or someone who has just moved into a new home or apartment.

7. Klorane Eye Patches: I swear by these and use them for puffy days, bad nights of sleep, overnight flights, and photo shoot prep. I also keep them in the fridge for an extra punch of cold to depuff.

8. “All The Light We Cannot See” is one of my favorite books. The book is way better than the Netflix special. A few other favorite book ideas are below. I can’t wait to snuggle up with Henri and read later this month.

9. Fleur de Sel Salt $18 at POSH. This is a French cooking staple and looks beautiful on your countertop. You will find yourself using this all the time, from cooking to baking. A little sprinkle on butter or cookies adds a punch of flavor.

10. Avène Thermal Spray $10 – $19 depending on the size. This has a cult French girl following for a good reason. You will want this in your beauty cabinet. Makes a great stocking stuffer.

11. Laneige Sleepmask $24 This glides onto your lips for extra hydration at night. Gift this to someone who lives in a colder climate for winter, and they will thank you.

12. Le Creuset Salt and Pepper Mills $46 make a great addition to any tablescape. They are offered in multiple colors to match different Le Creuset sets.

13. Tech Organizer. I bought this for both my husband and I, and we use it often. This keeps all your tech cords and adapters in one spot. It is so helpful. I try to have a travel cord for each device so I don’t have to take any from home. Plus, it makes packing so much easier.

14. Quince Cashmere Sweater $50 I have this in two versions and love it. Size up one size. I have it in a medium.

Feu de Bois Diptyque candle

15. Diptyque Feu de Bois candle $40. This candle smells like a campfire and reminds me of Fall/Winter. This is a huge hit with men if you are looking for a good candle scent that isn’t too feminine.

16. Two masks to have in your beauty cabinet is this Instant Detox one from Caudalie. I have one and a backup along with this Brightening Glycolic Peel Mask. Always remember to exfoliate before using any mask. It makes a big difference!

17. Mini Cheese Set by Laguiole $46 The quintessential French brand for knives. This makes a great gift for the hostess or someone who loves entertaining.

18. Set of 15 frozen croissants $40 Shipped frozen, let rise overnight and bake in the morning to enjoy.

19. Jade facial spa set $52. I put this on the list because I would want one for myself. It is one part of the beauty regimen I haven’t adopted yet, and I have heard great things.

20. Paris Hat $42 A navy hat with white embroidered font from The Print Shop. This is perfect for weekends, dog walks, and coffee runs.

21. L’Occitaine Hand Cream $45 This hand and foot duo is a $60 value. L’Occitaine is an iconic French brand from Provence.

22. Holiday in the city mug. $16 This is one of the most popular holiday items purchased year after year. I break this mug out for holiday hot chocolate and coffee to get in the festive spirit.

23. Merit Shade Slick $25 Pink Beet is the color I wear on repeat. The gelées can be a lot of fun too and aren’t as bold as they look!

24. Italy Calendar $35 for the Italy Lover. This calendar will delight you with images of The Amalfi Coast all year long. Each month shares a different photo that can be cut and framed.

Paris or Italy assorted notecards. These make a great stocking stuffer for the traveler. I also love bringing these as a hostess gift when going to someone’s house for dinner. I was always looking for notecards and I couldn’t find them so I created my own.
