The Best Souvenirs in Paris and where to find them 2020

One of the hardest things for travelers to do while on vacation is to pick out a stellar souvenir for their loved ones.
There are only so many miniature Eiffel towers and berets that people can tolerate.
Too much time and effort are needed to find that perfect souvenir, and frankly, it can be tiring. So, to help out, I made a list of places where you can find that perfect Parisian souvenir you’ve been dying to get ♥

Souvenirs from Paris for that fabulously gorgeous friend
Nothing says “Paris” more than an intricately crafted bottle of perfume.
Annick Goutal (14 Rue de Castiglione, 75001 Paris) is the place to go for expertly concocted scents; ‘Ce Soir ou Jamais’ and ‘L’Eau d’Hadrien,’ two of their classic scents, are the perfect little bottles to take back home with you.
For a more gourmand scent in pretty pastel boxes, try the Laduree gift shop at Madeleine (16 Rue Royale, 75008 Paris.)
Guerlain (68 Avenue des Champs Elysees, 75008 Paris) is home to iconic Parisian scents like ‘Champs-Elysees’ as well as a sought-after makeup collection that’s ideal for creating chic looks.

Food:

Sweet treats from Paris for any foodie friend
Laduree and Pierre Herme are the classic-and typical-places to buy some macaroons. But Maison Georges Larnichol   (132 Boulevard Saint-Germain, 75006 Paris) is a lesser-known yet equally delicious place to get delicious macaroons, caramels, or chocolate maps of Paris; you can go after a visit to the nearby Notre-Dame or Shakespeare and Co.
If your loved one isn’t much of a sweet tooth, try Maille (6 Place de la Madeleine, 75008 Paris) near the Kenzo boutique in Madeleine- it specializes in mustards of all types, ranging from the classic Dijon to the exotic Violet.

Perfect Fashion Items from Paris for your chic companion

Although Paris is home to all kinds of fashion, it’s particularly renowned for sexy lingerie.
Chantal Thomas (211 Rue Saint-Honoré, 75001 Paris) and Fifi Chachnil (231 Rue Saint-Honoré, 75001 Paris) are ideal places to pick up some lacy (and racy) wares.
For chic tees and sweaters, check out Maison Kitsuné’s Parisian cool clothing, available
at the nearby uber-stylish boutique Colette (213 Rue Saint-Honoré, 75001 Paris). For the quintessential Parisian accessory, check out Longchamp
(404 Rue Saint-Honoré, 75001 Paris) for their Le Pilage tote, the must-have for any Parisienne.
If you’re ever lost on where all the stylish boutiques in Paris are, just head on over to the 1e arrondissement and walk along rue Saint-Honoré!
Hopefully, now you’ll have more time to tour the city or go shopping for yourself!

I love absolutely everything

"Often, when I go out with the intention of buying new clothes, I end up wandering around for hours and not finding anything I really love. Because my time in Paris was limited, I wanted to make the best use of what little opportunity I had for shopping. Enter Linda, who-in just 3 hours-helped me select a range of gorgeous new clothes and accessories, I love absolutely everything I bought. My time with her was an absolute joy: she is very relaxed and easy to chat with, and she really listens to your opinions and steers you towards the things you will like. If only all shopping was this easy!"

"This was my first personal shopping experience on a trip to Paris so I wasn't sure what to expect, but was soon pul al case by the warm and friendly Linda... After wearing one of my new outfits back in London. several people have commented that I had a 'French chic look going on! It was the look I'd asked Linda for, so it seems to be working! Highly recommended - and I'll definitely be back for more!"

"We had such a productive two hours with Linda! My daughter is very petite for her age (14 years old, almost 5'2" and 90 lbs). It is hard for her to find clothes in styles popular in her age group and I was worried that our Paris shopping would be frustrating. I am so glad we booked Linda! We sent her some samples of styles my daughter liked as well as the types of items we were interested in purchasing. Linda mapped out stores and actual items in advance. And she was good at identifying potential options on the fly too. In two hours we got a dress, two pairs of jeans, some slides and two tops that my daughter loves! In every store Linda would quickly ask the salespeople for the smallest sizes and then my daughter would quickly make a call on what she wanted to try. Very efficient! Linda comes from a family in the fashion business and earlier in the day had helped a bride from the U.S. select her couture wedding gown. She is versatile for sure! Thank you Linda for this great highlight of our trip to Paris!"

Amazing Personal Shopping Experience in Paris

"My 13 year old daughter and I had a wonderful morning with Linda. We walked around the Marais area and Linda introduced us to many shops and boutiques. Linda quickly understood what my daughter style is and what she prefers and offered her different and unique items at every store. My daughter is typically not an easy shopper :) but Linda was able to find her multiple beautiful items that she loved and we purchased (all within the budget we pre-defined before starting). We even got one item for me (although this was not our focus this time ...). Linda also helped us to quickly receive the tax refund forms at the different stores we visited. Overall it was an amazing experience which my daughter really enjoyed and marked as one of the highlights of our Paris visit."

"Linda took my daughter and I and another friend and her daughter shopping and it was just perfect. She chose ideal spots for the teenagers and great spots for myself and my friend (we are in our early 50s). She's kind, patient, and thoughtful and really tries to make sure everyone finds what they need/ I also loved that she wasn't pushy with us buying things. She made me feel very comfortable to say you know this is not right for me. I love the shoes I got on our trip and the jeans and my daughter had the best time. This is a really special experience. My only suggestion would be that if you are shopping for teens and grownups to try to add more time because 2 hours was not enough for us! It's a great experience -- hope you enjoy it too!"
