The holiday shopping season is upon us, and while there will be endless items to pick from, choosing just the right gift for that certain someone on your list takes time and careful thought.
This year, TSLL’s Holiday Gift Guide is full of a wide array of gifts from gourmet food products to unique gifts for the traveler as well as Francophile inspired stationery. Each carefully chosen and gathered over the last few months, simply click on the link below the image to shop. While some items are affiliates of mine, most are not, and are plain and simple quality items I thought you and your loved ones might enjoy based on their predilections. After all, while it is the thought that counts, a thoughtful gift delivers a powerful message to the receiver. Lastly, since it is the holidays here on the blog, special discounts are available for TSLL items and the book.
Over the weekend I will be sharing more promo codes from the around the web you may want to use for your shopping, so be sure to stop back by, and don’t forget to shop locally this Saturday. Enjoy perusing and happy holidays!

Retro Design Lovers
~Angela Roi luxury handbags at an affordable price and thoughtfully made, vegan~
~Citizen watches new designs for both men and women are simple, top quality and beautiful. Having personally chosen the Drive (middle design), I am loving the design, and its easy transition from day to evening.~
~local Bend shoppers, stop into Nicole Michelle Decor to find your French home accessories and the book Ma Vie a Paris, an exclusive for this hard to find item. And receive a free Austin Press candle with your purchase over $100. Below are a few pics of the shop as I explored it on Wednesday. Many new and festive decor ideas as well as signed copies of TSLL book!~
~From American expat living in France, blogger Diane of Oui in France just released her new high quality Francophile t-shirts. With three exclusive illustrations from a local French artist and made of 100% soft-tee cotton, the $24.99 price tag is a sweet deal. Shop and learn more here.
~Maree Breton Striped Sweater in navy (other colors available)
~Garde Cote III, nautical striped sport top (other colors available)
~Bonnets Rayes striped knit beanie (other colors available)
~Clairsonsic’s new Mia Fit (smaller, travel-friendly and just as effective). I had the opportunity to use this compact facial cleanser, and it is much more to my preference as it takes up less space in my cabinet, gets the job done and done well (multiple colors are available).
Busy & Organized
~Inslee has partnered up with Nicole + Chloe to offer her new day planner. Available in four different colors, for $178, receive the leather binder, the pages for the entire year, monthly calendar pages and weekly planning pages.~

Foodies & Chefs
~As someone who enjoys staying in vacation rentals, I have found that bringing along my favorite knife is important if I want to have a pleasurable cooking experience. Yep, I am one of those people who likes to cook on vacation. I know. But if you have a cook in the family or a loved one who as well travels with their knives, Boldric one buckle leather knife bag (two colors available) is an affordable, but quality gift they will appreciate.~
~Maille fresh mustards is offering a decadently delicious flavoring of their classic mustard: the best-selling Black Truffle and Chablis mustard (black jar) and for a limited time the Black Truffle cep and Chablis mustard (beige jar). Having had the opportunity taste both of them, you will certainly smell the truffle and it will heighten a simple everyday vinaigrette, a traditional mustard sauce or spread and anything else in which you want to intensify the flavor (perhaps this recipe is something you could add it too?).
~for the thoughtful, conscientious shopper, give them a 100% cotton shopping bag to take to the market. La Coursière offers these netted cotton bags in a variety of colors, and they are larger than you might think. Look closely at the proportions in the image of the shopper. Shop the bags here.~
