Holiday Gifts a Box of Delights from France

French Holiday Box

There is a chill in the air in the northern hemisphere and summery weather, in the south. Regardless of your address, Christmas arrives on the same day all over the world. And it’s never too early to start shopping for the holidays!

The team at My Stylish French Box are taking orders for their holiday gift boxes (skip to the bottom for details on how to place an order). These beautiful packages will ship in November to post boxes all over the world in time for the holidays. The theme for this coming festive season is “Mon Beau Sapin” (my beautiful Christmas tree).

“The French Christmas may seem understated, but it is nevertheless beautiful. Paris, in particular, is always stunning, Christmas trees and twinkly lights line the streets, from the beautifully decorated storefronts to the pop-up Christmas markets.” ~ Sharon Santoni, Founder

Delightfully French

Who doesn’t like getting a beautiful package in the mail? This past August, the My Stylish French Box theme was Provence, which is something close to my heart. As a bonus, the box arrived a few days before my birthday. It was almost like my husband planned the gift. ;-)

My Stylish French Box Provence

 What was immediately apparent is that Sharon Santoni and her team put incredible thought into curating the made-in-France products to fill these gift boxes. The simple, elegant package is a keepsake on its own. The contents of the August box were, as promised, inspired by Provence, and I loved everything. Here, are a few highlights:

My Stylish French Box Collection

 Lavender is far from cliché in Provence; it is embedded in the lifestyle. The gift box contained a handcrafted fuseau (lavender wand) from La Maison Franc in Lourmarin that will last forever.

My Stylish French Box Rose et Marius

 Based in chic Aix-en-Provence, Rose et Marius work with expert perfume creators in the capital of Grasse who craft their exclusive scents. Used in soaps, diffusers, and candles, the fragrances are as you would expect lovely, but it is the containers that are real works of art. Inside the August My Stylish French Box was a solid perfume (refillable) and a stunning case, a design inspired by the floor tiles in the creator’s grandmother’s house.

My Stylish French Box Lady in Red

It probably helps that red is my favourite colour, but the black and white print by Jean-Jacques Sempé with the lady in red has a prominent spot in my kitchen. There were more beautiful items inside the box.

It was like Christmas in August!
