Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and where better to get your loved one (or yourself) a special gift than France, home of the City of Love? If you’re feeling a bit stuck for a gift this year, here are some ideas for Valentine’s Day gifts from France, by local creatives and brands that you can shop online:
Jewelry & Watches
Jewelry is a classic Valentine’s Day gift and for good reason. There’s something special about receiving a gorgeous piece of jewelry from a loved one. I love this beautiful ring by French jewelry brand Zoaje, and these stunning earrings by Atelier Floreen. For something a little bit different, Mignonne Handmade makes amazing headpieces and hair combs. A watch is also the perfect gift. If this is more your angle, check out 7PLIS, a French brand that creates unique watches out of recycled skateboards.
The men I know always seem to be in need of a new wallet! Le Tanneur is a French leather goods brand that was founded in 1898. They use beautiful materials and full-grain leather to create timeless and durable pieces. For men, check out the black messenger bag or wallet. For women, try this pretty powder pink shoulder bag, floral tote bag, or red purse.
Get your significant other some lovely sleepwear to end the day on a luxuriant note. French brand Bloem Linen makes handmade linen clothing such as this bloomer and camisole pajama set. Or there’s this pajama set by My French Linen House, which you can pair with this unisex linen robe.
Nuage Shop makes romantic custom prints of “The Night We Met’’ or “The Day the Stars Aligned.” For the Francophile in your life, ask Lucile’s Kitchen to create a custom Paris watercolor print, or order her set of 4 French seasonal food prints. Or, get an original custom portrait of your loved one from Aimee Del Valle.
I know candles are seen as quite a cliché gift for women, but I actually love receiving them. I particularly adore this organic, vegan, and cruelty-free Venus candle by Euphorya Candle. Or, for something a little more traditional, Poēsie ticks all the boxes: sublime biodegradable, 100% natural, vegan, GMO- and cruelty-free candles.
I don’t know about you, but my skin is certainly feeling the effects of the cold weather. But with all this time spent indoors lately, it means there’s plenty of time for pampering. Vichy is one of France’s famous pharmacy brands. They have moisturizers, serums, and masks that are sure to get that hydration back into your loved one’s skin. The kits for both women and men make a great gift.
Last year certainly taught us the importance of self care. And there’s nothing more relaxing than a warm cup of herbal tea. Malindo is a French brand specializing in ethical and high-quality teas, tisanes, and rooibos from Malaysia and Indonesia. Get the tea lover in your life a gift pack of organic detox teas, iced teas, vegan teas, special hibiscus teas, or a mixed pack with an organic tea, tisane, and rooibos. Complete your gift with one of their gorgeous mugs.
