One of the joys of visiting Paris is finding a memento or souvenir to take back with you, or something special for your loved ones back home from the City of Light. We have several favorite gift shops that carry items much nicer than the typical tacky souvenir stands. One of our favorites is Les Parisettes, a darling shop with “souvenirs chic & trendy.” They carry a great assortment of affordable, nice quality jewelry, cards, books, stationary, linens, housewares, puzzles, games and more, with Paris and Eiffel Tower themes. Some of the wooden die cut puzzles are made in Montmartre, as are some of the unique stationary items.
I couldn't resist the 3-D Eiffel Tower puzzles, which come in three sizes and various colorful, decorative patterns. They are flat when you purchase them, so very easy to pack and take up no room in your luggage. Great gift ideas!
Easy to assemble, just punch out … no scissors or glue required.
I'm also bringing home this Eiffel Tower cookie cutter, and a colorful cutting board.
Les Parisettes has two locations in Paris. One is in the 7th arrondissement at 26 rue Malar, which is just off rue Saint-Dominique and only a short stroll from many of our Paris Perfect vacation apartments. They have a second location in the 15th arrondissement, at 95 avenue Emile Zola. Les Parisettes also has a website, so you can order online when you need a cute and fun Paris fix!
