For this gift guide, I’m so excited to share with you a few businesses and organizations in Paris that could really use your support this year. It doesn’t need repeating that this year has been tough for a lot of business, especially those that depend on tourists. Of course Paris being one of the most visited destinations in the world depends on tourists, as do its businesses. Below I’m sharing a list of businesses that help bring a touch of Paris to your life and could also use a bit of a boost this year. Thank you in advance for supporting them and tell them I sent you!
Each monthly subscription box is a grande surprise, 2-3 luxury treasures personally chosen from an exclusive selection of French vendors & ateliers & delivered to your door. The best part: No two boxes are identical.
A shameless self-plug here. It’s my every day pleasure to share my photos and videos with you on social media, but what pays the bills is your purchases of my art. I print on wrapped canvases, notecards, paper, etc. Use code GIVETHANKS20 for 20% off your order. Restrictions apply.
When I posted photos of this shop a few months ago, I got so many DMs. It is a charming shop and a dream for all lovers of French linens. The owner does speak English and you can email her with any questions. She told me she’s really struggling this year, so I do hope you’ll consider purchasing from her.
I have now worked with Maison NH a couple of times and just love their bags. My first of theirs was the Dahlia Petit in Sucre Brun and it is one of my most complimented accessories I’ve ever worn. I even got my mom one for Christmas last year, which she loved. Use code MNHDAYS20 for 20% off site-wide plus FREE get FREE shipping worldwide.
A few weeks ago it came to my attention that this Parisian landmark was struggling. I have since placed my own order but have found they found a way to help you help them. They now offer a membership program with benefits that include exclusive content, access to their bookclub, and signed books.
Kristin’s blog is the only blog I have followed religiously for the last 10+ years. Her missives from Provence paint a vivid picture of life in the south while always leaving readers with something to think about. She’s written several books and is currently co-writing one with her French husband.
Join thousands of other donors to help bring our beloved Notre Dame back to life. I watched the cathedral burn in 2019 and it was so moving to see the citizens of Paris come together to sing and cry over the loss of the 800 year-old monument. Every little bit helps.
A donation to American Friends of the Louvre (AFL) helps make the Museum’s exhibitions and permanent collections more accessible in the U.S. and beyond. There are of course many benefits with the membership including invitations to events and access to the museum.
