Paris Christmas Shopping

Christmas at Le Meurice
Start with a Room at the divine Le Meurice, Paris part of The Dorchester Collection

A gift in the gift! I cannot think of a better gift to give to your best friend, your mom, your daughter, your sister, your Boss (a very good one) then a trip to Paris to shop for the Holidays. Just a night or two, very girly very fun!
I would start with a great Hotel, luxe and easy. If its home of the Valmont Spa even better, I think a deep tissue massage and 15 minutes of hamman can be perfect after a busy day shopping.

I also heard that there is a great exhibition of jewelry of Van Cleef.
Musée des Arts décoratifs
107, rue de Rivoli,  just a few steps from Le Meurice Hotel
Paris 75001
on until february so not to be missed.
Around 500 creations that have made the fame of the Maison are highlighted and shown with archives, documents and drawings, in an exhibition design by
The history of Van Cleef & Arpels is studded with technical inventions passed down by the Mains d’Or of the Maison from generation to generation. It is this knowledge, kept secret and combined with imagination and very free sources of inspiration that underpins this formidable profusion of forms and models.
All the pieces have been researched and dated for this exhibition, so that the chronology of their creation can be precisely retraced for the first time.

No visit to Paris is complete without dine at my favorite Chef in Paris
Philippe Escoffier
18, rue de l'exposition
75007 Paris
Reservations 01 45 51 78 08

If you are still looking for the perfect New Years Eve Dress
Elie Saab is the place for you.

Chanel is for Paris is a must. The perfect gifts to bring home.

un expected objets are found in several art galleries, just stroll around
Boulevard St. Germain

If you want to see an old Maison still very charming please pay a visit to Goyard

Around the corner from the American Ambassy there is the Boutique
l'Eclaireur must see. on Boissy d'Anglas

Hermès is alway a joy!

The new Louis Vuitton  Jewelry shop in Place Vendome designer by Marino

Shopping in Paris is particularly appealing in the run up to Christmas.
