Hi everyone! Nichole here from Little Brown Pen. I’m happy to be over at HIP Paris today, and to be sharing my French-inspired holiday gift picks with you. Below are a few things I wouldn’t mind having under my tree (husband? are you reading?), so I hope you enjoy.

French Felt Scarves

These beautiful scarves are handmade in Normandy. I love the texture, subtle shine and classic shades.

Rifle Paper Co Paris Notecards

I wish these illustrations were available as large prints. Aren’t they adorable?

Cubist Literature Tees

Cubist Literature has a great sense of humor. I’ve been admiring this silly French tee for months.

French text: “Moi, je veux te dire que je ne te quitterai jamais. Et puis, si tu es triste, je pourrais toujours te donner un peu d’alcool pour te rechauffer le coeur. xo”

Translation from their site: “I want you to know that I will never leave you. And, if you’re ever sad, I can always give you a little alcohol to make you feel better”.

Love it!
