Our love affair with all things French (or faux French) is longstanding, but our desire to show our love for the country and its capital is stronger now than ever. We know we're not the only Francophiles out there, so we've compiled a gift guide filled with trés chic things — from clothes to accessories to parfums — that we know your French-obsessed loved one will adore.
No-brainer gifts: A book written by one of the ultimate French cool girls, a keychain by the ultimate cool French brand, Grance Doré-designed note cards with phrases like "Bonjour" and "Merci," French ballet blats with a lift and an unassuming clutch.
Tees and sweaters with French phrases are all the rage now. We love these ones by French-Japanese brand Maison Kitsuné, and British labels Être Cécile and Bella Freud. Also essential: French lingerie and a striped Saint James shirt.
Beauty-wise, the French are known for minimal makeup, good skin and great scents. Our recommendations include the ultimate French pharmacy makeup remover, a limited-edition Chanel lipstick, French Girl moisturizer, Chloé parfume (in the cutest and most French packaging), and the best-smelling French candles out there.
