Gift Guide: Perfectly Parisian


Today is one of my favorite gift guides yet… It’s all about PARIS! Ever since my trip to Paris in October, I’ve been absolutely dying to go back… without a return ticket. I say it kind of jokingly probably as a defense mechanism because it’s super scary, but truthfully, my goal is to move to Paris before I’m 30. Not longterm, but I would like to spend 6-12ish months living there. I never studied abroad in college so I’ve only ever lived in the US. Who knows when it will be time to branch out, but I’m hoping I’ll be able to make it happen. Any who… Back to holiday shopping!

This gift guide is for anyone who has a bit of a love affair with the City of Light. (Seriously, though, who doesn’t?) Whether she’s been to Paris and is dying to go back (#raiseshand) or is simply dreaming of visiting one day, these gifts are sure to put a smile on her face!

Learning a bit of French is one of my goals for this coming year, so I really need to pick up this French Phrasebook to start learning the basics. (I mean, I kind of need to semi speak the language if I’m going to live there, right?!)

While macarons from Dana’s Bakery are technically American macarons, they still make for the perfect Parisian-inspired gift. (And they truly are my absolute favorite macarons!) They ships nationwide, too! I placed a few orders last year for holiday gifts and had them shipped and everyone loved the creative flavors.

Oh, and these Eiffel Tower Earrings? I can’t get enough! The subtle front-back style is oh so chic. I’m planning to pick up a pair at #73SpringShop this week!

    This gift guide was *made* for me! I have still not had the pleasure to visit Paris, but it is absolutely on my list and my goal is to visit before I am 30 (which is this Summer – eek!). I might not make that deadline, but these gifts would definitely be welcome in my home.
