Gifts With a French Accent

French gifts, gifts for Francophiles. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

And yes, you can still get them in time…

Is there someone on your gift list who loves All Things French? Here are a few gift ideas to hold them over until their next visit to France.

French Gifts for Francophiles on your list…

La Rochère French Bee glassware. Details and more gifts for Francophiles at une femme d'un certain age.

This French Bee glassware is as durable as it is pretty. I love those small tumblers for juices and iced coffees.

Compagnie de Provence rose hand cream. Details and more French gifts at une femme d'un certain age.

I discovered this hand lotion last year at a fancy garden center. Made in Marseille with ingredients from Provence, it really moisturizes winter-dry skin, and isn’t greasy. Available in Rose and Lavender fragrances.

Detail: lavender candle from My Stylish French Box. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

I keep this candle on my nightstand, and find the lavender-honey fragrance SO soothing.

The Judgement of Paris by Ross King. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

This is still one of my favorite books about art, history and Paris. It’s engaging reading, and if you know someone who will be visiting Paris for the first time, it provides some excellent context.

Lifestyle blogger Susan B. reviews My Stylish French Box "Holidays In Provence." Details at une femme d'un certain age.

For that very special person on your list, how about a little bit of France delivered to their doorstep four times per year? My Stylish French Box is a subscription box filled with unique and exclusively French items hand-selected by Sharon Santoni. The next box arrives in February, so they’ll have something wonderful to look forward to!

Macaron tree ornaments. Details and more French-inspired gifts at une femme d'un certain age.

I think these macaron ornaments are just so cute…

Bnunwish French Press coffee maker. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

I’m cheating a little here, as this French press coffee maker isn’t actually from a French brand. But it’s the one I like the best, and always recommend. The double-walled glass construction keeps your coffee warmer longer.

Longchamp le pliage Club scarf in navy. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

And finally, a scarf, because, bien sûr. This one’s from French brand Longchamp, and features stars and their iconic racehorse logo on a navy background.

    Great ideas! Love the scarf. I’m a subscriber to My Stylish French Box and absolutely love it. By the way, did you just give us a little sneak peak of the February box?! Hope so, because the little basket looks adorable. Merry Christmas and a very Happy & Blessed 2020.

    Hi Susan…I just finished reading The Judgement of Paris by Ross King for the third time. It is a wonderful and engaging book. So happy to hear that you liked it as well!

    I love the French Bee glassware! I have the small tumblers, and would like to get a larger size, too.
