Engagement 101′s Editor-in-chief Severine Ferrari shares with us her French inspired holiday gift ideas:
“I have lived in America a very long time but I can’t forget my home country. I have selected traditional Parisian gifts for boys and girls in love as well as their future in-laws or parents.”
If your planning your proposal for later, here are some ideas.
1 - Nuxe is a really cool French cosmetic brand now available in the US. This $59 Holiday gift box includes their best selling items and a cute candle. You girlfriend will feel and smell great.
2 - Though Mastoloni is American, any French girl has to have a classic real pearl necklace. They start at $85 depending on the type of pearls and length.
3- Not ready to propose but you want to promise you will? Here is the cutest French ring –called Amour Je t’aime- to show you are committed to your one and only. It’s $990 with real gold and diamonds.
1- Eau Sauvage by Dior is the number 1 fragrance sold in France. It is a classic and sold $60 at Sephora.
2- Ready to spend a little more on your man. Check out this hip track jacket from very chic Lacoste. It comes in great color combos priced at $165
I recommend to pick one of those or combine them as a gift box if it’s within your budget.
1- An Epicerie Boulud gift basket. Whether they went to Paris and want to reminisce or just love French food. An Epicerie Boulud gift basket will never disappoint. Sweet or savory , they start at $49 for a box of delicious macarons.
2- French champagne is French people Celebration drink of choice. It can be pricey. Champagnes Nicolas Feuillate are very tasty and awesomely priced . You can buy them by the bottle or as a gift box here. They have a great promo $24.99 a bottle for real French champagne!
3- If your in-laws are not foodies, Diptyque candles are a must have. Their smell is exquisite. They have a Special Holiday collection and come in different sizes and prices. Two of our favorite scents from the classic collection are Figuier and Baies.
