Gifts for the Francophile

Monday, November 28, 2011

It's Cyber Monday, and I thought I would help you with your Christmas shopping list  ;P

Here are a few things I found for the Francophile on your list.  I will post a similar list for Anglophiles on Wednesday.


Pragmatic vase from Anthropologie


For the Francophile who has everything: a Laguiole champagne sabre from Williams-Sonoma


Although maybe not as classic as L'heure Bleue or Shalimar, Champs-Elysees is a lovely fragrance from the House of Guerlain.  Sold stateside at Sephora


Lavender always reminds me of Provence.  Lavender gift set from L'Occitane


Monsieur et Madame candles, one for each bedside table, from Market Street Candles

I am here to help!  ;P

Are you shopping this Cyber Monday?  I must admit I am much more of a Cyber Monday girl than a Black Friday girl.  I like avoiding crowds!

Both of my girls are back in school after a long Fall Break *sadface*  It was so nice having them both out of class and having fun!

Until next time...

  1. Oh, I love all the Francophiles Ricki, I love L'Occitane products I use them since the store opened here and that is three years ago...have you tried them? Thank you sweetie for your lovely visit, I'm havng fun with the girls and I will post little by little the rest of the Christmas home decor, like the tree, Nativity scene, mantel, etc. Lots of hugs and have a great week. FABBY

  2. You've found some wonderful gifts online! I love the lavender...and I'm a Shalimar girl so I'm sure I would like the perfume, too! I know how quiet it is when they all leave! Hope you turn on some groovy music and enjoy shopping...or decorating today! ♥

  3. PS I'm having a GIVEAWAY starting today! Stop by soon! HUGS! ♥

  4. Lovely collection. :) I especially like that first image.

  5. Love l'Occitane products and I'm a Shalimar gal too!
    BF & CM are unknown phenomenon here in France. Strange as it might seem I've been known to shop online any old day of the week!

  6. Great suggestions. The lavender sounds lovely. I am always sad when Thanksgiving/Fall is over. Glad you all had a great time over break.

  7. Oh I think I need the champagne sabre. It is the one thing I would use the most around here. Have a great Monday.

  8. Great picks!
    I still adore heading out and doing my xmas shopping in person.
    I just wait until the crowds have gone back home and back to work ;)

  9. Oh I love that vase! I'm not much of a Black Friday shopper either. I don't have the patience!

  10. Somehow we are on the same wavelength I LOVE the vase from anthro too
    I am on the lookout for pansy ring for you they are from Germany
    will let you know if I find one
