GIFT GUIDE TIME! It’s the most wonderful time of the year… Can you tell we’re excited? We LOVE Christmas in our home!
We also love giving each other presents and use any excuse possible to celebrate – the obvious days like birthdays and Valentine’s Days and the less obvious like our monthly anniversaries and even blog milestones and random Tuesdays. You get the picture, we love to feel happy and we love to show this love and happiness with sweet, thoughtful little gifts.
We’d like to help you spread the Christmas cheer this year with this gift guide – created in our Parisian home just for you. ♥
Every gift on this list can be ordered on Amazon because Prime means you’ll have it in a day. We love Prime.
Play some Christmas music, drink some hot chocolate and set the mood for some cozy online Christmas shopping!
These are amazing. Not only are they perfect for making a delicious Moscow Mule, but they double as decoration up on a kitchen shelf. #winning
I imagine these would be perfect for the hostess in your life.
Who loves wine? Silly question, everyone loves wine, you say. These glasses make wine tasting that much more fun because it becomes a fun guessing game with friends. Who can guess which wine is which? The perfect excuse to bring out a couple of bottles you have been saving for a special celebration. These glasses would be perfect for a couple that just moved in together, newlyweds and any wine lovers in your life.
This is the single most important item we own for making easy, delicious meals every night. So many recipes on this blog have been made in our red Le Creuset dutch oven. It’s practically our child. We’ve been collecting red Le Creuset pieces since we got married and are partial to Le Creuset – we think it’s extremely high quality and worth every penny. That being said, less expensive versions exist and are good for starting out too.
For the home cook that wants to serve delicious food in adorable little red casseroles. Because who doesn’t really? We love these and have them in pink too.
This hot air balloon is for the traveler in your life. That person that loves to make a bucket list, add things to said bucket list, cross items off, color code, etc. Ok just me?
BTW, I have this in my office and it makes me smile every time I look at! It reminds me that our next fantastic adventure is always just around the corner.
The book to read if you have ever lived in Paris, dreamed of living in Paris, wondered what it’s like to buy an apartment in Paris. Spoiler alert : buying an apartment in Paris (or even renting one!) is full of trials and tribulations, along with lots of beautiful moments too, of course! A must-read… Plus, anyone who loves David Lebovitz will want to read his new book.
These lovely coasters are perfect for mom, elegant and practical, a winning combo. The gold makes them festive, although they can also be enjoyed year round. These would make a perfect hostess gift too when you’re invited to attend all of those holiday parties!
You know who would love this? HUGO! And… all the bearded men in your life. Because men with beards need allll the products to take care of their beards and sometimes they don’t think of that themselves and that’s where you come in to help them. ♥
You know that person on your list who still loves to send (and receive) lovely little notes? (OK, I am THAT PERSON.) These note cards are perfect for her. They have a vintage-y feel, darling little details and a hint of Parisian chic. I love them.
This is the perfect gift for your boyfriend or girlfriend or that friend who loves preparing social outings. It’s also perfect for that mom who loves taking her family our for a yummy picnic by the water or even in the backyard.
I gifted Hugo one of these a couple of years ago and we love it. It’s so much fun to make our Summer picnics by the Seine just a touch more stylish. It’s also really nice to eat our cheese and pasta salad on real plates and drink our wine out of real glasses. It adds that certain je ne sais quoi to your picnic shenanigans.
Isn’t this the cutest little terrarium? I see this being gifted to someone who lives in a city and wants some green. Maybe your brother who just moved to the city and is missing the great outdoors? Or your sister who has mentioned she would love a little garden of her own. This is a great first step!
Everything you need to get started with terrarium gardening is in this pretty little kit.
Have we mentioned we love spiralling? Fruits? √ Veggies? √ Its the best!
This is a wonderful gift for anyone who is trying to eat healthier and looking for a creative way to get more fruits & veggies into their diet.
We discovered this black lava salt from Hawaii at our favorite Parisian oyster bar. This is the gift for the gourmet food lover on your list. It’s surprising, it’s delicious and it adds a little WOW to any dish. It’s perfect for a food blogger friend too because it’s lovely to photograph.
I’m wrapping up this gift guide with this beautiful elephant candle. It’s an organic, coconut wax candle which means it’s the best quality, natural candle you can buy. We really believe in only burning organic candles for health.
I love the message behind this candle – DREAM! That’s my hope for everyone of you reading this post. DREAM! Let 2018 be the year you allow yourself to dream. Burn this candle and let your dreams soar. Isn’t this a beautiful message to share with your loved ones too? This gift could be for everyone on your list!
We hope you enjoy this season with family and friends! Although we are in Paris, we always have a little Thanksgiving celebration to mark the date and celebrate everything we are thankful for.
