Light up your love with a French candle! Candles are the perfect gift for anyone and are a sure-fire way to fill the air with love. Brands like Astiere de Villatte and Trudon add a luxurious touch to any room, while scents from Mademoiselle Lulubelle and Maison Louis Maire transport your senses to the flower-filled gardens of France. You can also spice things up with an Elixir d’Amour candle from Un Soir à l’Opera to feel the energy of Paris with each flicker of the flame.
Bath & Body
Nothing speaks to love better than the gift of self-care. Light a Parisian candle, fill the bathtub, and turn on some smooth French jazz while you enjoy the rejuvenating properties of a Mademoiselle Saint Germain facemask. On the MFCH Boutique, we have the best hand creams from French brands Fragonard and Rose et Marius as well as a shiny, decadent body oil from Voilà to moisturize after a proper soak.
For the face, apply only the best, natural French products from Laboratoires Cap Ferret. Anti-aging cream and anti-aging serum combined with contour lip & eye cream will have your skin glowing like a French girl who has just fallen in love.
**Special offer for our readers: use the code CAPFERRET15 to get 15% off these three products up until February 14th on the Laboratoires Cap Ferret website!
Not sure how to say, “I love you”? Let the books do the talking. If someone you love is itching to travel, check out our recent article on new books to transport you to Paris. Otherwise, you can’t go wrong at this time of year with a book on French love poems to really get them swooning or a book on adventurous experiences to have in France to get them dreaming. Cookbooks are also a thoughtful option, bringing the art of French cooking right to their home.
On the subject of cooking, the chefs and bakers in your life will light up with a gift from la cuisine française. French kitchen essentials include wooden cutting boards with character, traditional copper pots and pans, and kitchenware that brings the table to life.
Round off a cooking-inspired present with a stylish floral apron that can match the kitchen’s tea towels and the dining room’s table napkins – only available on the MFCH Boutique!
Finally, for the French fashionista in your life, you can’t go wrong with accessories. Tasteful jewelry pieces with gold and pearls made in France by Gisel B will have your loved one feeling fancy. Trendy socks by Atelier St Eustache will add a little pizazz to any outfit. Luxury hair accessories like silk ties or colorful cotton scrunchies can turn any day into a good hair day.
Et voilà! Straight from the City of Love, this France-inspired gift guide should have you feeling inspired for ways to spread the love to all the magnifique people in your life. Joyeux Saint Valentin!
