Few cultures understand The Art of Gifting as the French do. And here in Paris you will find plenty of gift choices to keep eeryone on your holiday list happy. A jewelry and watch lover ? Here you will find the best. Perhaps books, photos and artwork are what you need to find? You could spend day after day browsing through the book shelves here, including the ones at the museum gift shops such as the Librairie Boutique du Musée National Picasso-Paris.
But since it’s hard enough to shop for ourselves, let alone others, when it comes time to tick off the names on your Christmas and holiday shopping list it’s nice to think that you are offering something that will actually be appreciated.
So this Paris holiday shopping list is curated for people who appreciate fineness, elegance and unique items.
I've included a few select boutiques that are specialized in candles, perfumes and beauty products, all French specialties. These are pleasing for both men and women, girls and boys. Well, maybe not so much for boys. For them you'll find a store listed here, FNAC, which is stocked full of digital games and gadgets, computers, cameras and the latest smart phones.
