For The Francophile: Gift Guide For The French Wannabee

Fran·co·phile

ˈfraNGkəˌfīl/

noun

plural noun: Francophiles

a person who is fond of or greatly admires France or the French.

Oui, yes this is me. Bonjour. 

 "Paris is always a good idea," Audrey Hepburn once said, and I'm sure any Francophile would agree. When they're not cafe hopping in the City of Lights or playing pétanque in Provence, any lover of France can still enjoy the je ne sais quoi of the country.

  • Laulhère :  Every Parisian girly needs a French beret! You could buy that French loving friend of  yours a beret you find anywhere but if you want a truly classic French beret made in France the traditional way (mostly by hand) then you must purchase a  Laulhère. Heritage par Laulhère has been nestled in the foot hills of the French Pyrenees for almost tow centuries creating headwear that is meticulously detailed and infused with the quality, culture, and heritage that only 170 years of experience could provide.  This is the route you want to go. I found one in navy and in cream for you Frenchies. And $30 bucks....order one of each!

  • ACCOUTREMENTS:  No-brainer gifts: A book written by one of the ultimate French cool girls, a purse by the ultimate cool French brand, Grance Doré prints, French ballet flats with a lift and an unassuming clutch organizer...These are all very tres chic and you're french obsessed friend will be soooo excited!
  • BEAUTÉ:  Beauty-wise, the French are known for minimal makeup, good skin and great scents. I personally think French women are the prettiest in all the land. Your frenchie obsessed dear will adore 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.
  • VETEMENTS: Tees and sweaters (and clutches) with French phrases are all the rage now. I 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. Tres! 

Your Frenchie hearts will be so happy ! I know mine is as I drink my morning coffee and indulge in my nougats. Hurry and head over to OuiPlease and grab that box ! It will make it here before Christmas if you act now! And 20% off.......Merci! Merci!
