In this post: If you love French Country home decor, this shopping guide of French inspired hostess gifts and ‘gifts for her’ will be right up your alley.⇒
Did you ever walk into a store to buy a gift and feel completely lost?
Likewise when shopping online: you open your computer and have no idea where to start?
It’s not that there’s not enough to buy. Quite the contrary. The options are limitless. And so often you need a “hook” to get you grounded. To find a place to start you need a foundation to stand on.
Does the person love cooking? Traveling? Or do they collect anything in particular?
Or maybe there’s a culture or style they feel especially aligned to. For me, of course, it’s anything French or at the very least French-inspired. And, when in doubt, it’s a great place to start because the French are known for their style.
Today I’m sharing 30+ French-inspired gifts that would make perfect hostess gifts or any ‘gift for her’.
The holiday season brings with it many opportunities to visit with family and friends. Even with small gatherings, you can’t go empty handed, and it’s a great idea to keep a selection of hostess gifts on hand for unexpected or last-minute events that come up.
I started doing this several years ago and it’s proven to be a lifesaver! I keep 3 to 5 extra gifts in the closet for just this sort of thing. I keep them packaged but unwrapped so I know what’s there, and yet they stay in perfect condition.
The gifts in today’s shopping guide are exactly the kinds of items you can keep for just this purpose. They include delightful items for the home, whether you’ll be hostessing yourself or will be bringing a gift to your host.
All of the items are under $100 and most are under $50. A few are even appropriate for stocking stuffers.
You’ll notice most of these items have a wonderfully French feel to them and can be appropriate for any season!
(And since this guide was first published, it has proven to be so popular, so I’ve linked to a few of my other shopping guides with different themes at the bottom of this post.)
And now, let’s shop!
