Molly’s Picks: French Gifts for Her (& More!)
Looking for French gifts for her? I’m sharing a few of my favorite things that are perfect for gifting to family, friends and loved ones.
When I was putting together my baker gift guide and Francophile gift guide this holiday season, there were several products I wished I could share with you that didn’t quite fit in either list. So, I made a separate list to share some of my favorite things!
So, without further ado, keep reading to explore some of my favorite French gifts for her.

13 French-Themed Gift Ideas for Her (or Anyone on Your List!)
As an American living in France, I absolutely love to take advantage of my proximity to amazing French products to give family and friends really lovely gifts. Here are a few of my favorite items to give (or get for myself!).
French Ceramic Crock
I use these small French ceramic crocks in my kitchen and my baking atelier to store and organize whisks, spatulas, and even rolling pins. They come in small and large sizes and are available in white or green ceramic.
Vintage French Silver-Plated Ice Tongs
These are one of those kitchen tools that is totally unnecessary but oh so cute. Use these mini tongs for ice cubes, sugar cubes or to serve small items like olives, cornichon and pieces of cheese. These would be a lovely addition to a charcuterie board!
French Linen Napkin Set
These beautiful linen napkins are inspired by Provence and feature cherry blossoms in reds and pinks. I have a scarf in this exact same print that I bought pretty soon after I moved to Paris at a tiny place around the corner from Cafe de Flore and I just love it! It’s so French but so joyous! I love the idea of this print on linen napkins.
French Chocolate Christmas Box
Chocolate has to be one of the best French gifts for her. And this Christmas chocolate box from Le Chocolat Alain Ducasse is the best of the best. We go here for chocolate every year. If you’re looking for quite the treat, they do ship to the US! This is truly the best chocolate we’ve ever tried (and we’ve tried a lot!).
Cody Foster Croquembouche Ornament
My mom gave me this ornament for my birthday and I think it’s just the cutest! Made from glass with vintage-inspired details, it looks just like a croquembouche- the perfect holiday dessert!
Mauviel M’TRIPLY S Copper Cookware
This innovative cookware combines stainless steel, aluminum and copper to create lightweight, low-maintenance pans that conduct heat evenly. It’s my dream to have these in my kitchen one day! They are made from absolutely stunning copper, but also highly functional!
Staub Cast Iron Animal Knobs
I absolutely love my Staub cast iron pan and it was so much fun picking out a fun knob for it when I first bought it! I have the rooster but I might get the snail next time. Find a Staub knob that showcases your loved one’s favorite things to personalize their cast iron.
Jean Dubost Laguiole Breakfast Set
This breakfast set is seriously beautiful. Breakfast is taken very seriously here. Often, breakfast includes tartines, slices of baguette slathered with salted French butter and a beautiful jam. This breakfast set includes everything you need to have your own French breakfast, including a bread knife, butter knife and long-handled confiture spoon.
La Petite Box – American in Provence
This gift box is such a treat and so much fun to open! It’s really four gifts in one – all coming from the South of France. The gift box includes a jewelry box from Sezane, body scrub by Cap Ferret, a necklace from Bohm and an oil diffuser by UGO.
Antique Cutting Boards
There is something so special and unique about antique cutting boards. I own several of them and I truly can’t get enough! I absolutely love these small, round bread boards I found on Etsy.
These might not technically qualify as a French gift for her, but I use spatulas to make French pastries all the time so it definitely still counts. I have quite a growing collection of spatulas. It’s such fun to take out ones specific for the holidays.
Williams Sonoma Peppermint Bark Advent Calendar
I look forward to eating Williams Sonoma Peppermint Bark every year. And with this Peppermint Bark Advent Calendar, you can eat it every day! Watch out, though, it’s hard to resist skipping ahead a few days to open more than one at a time.
What’s Gaby Cooking Spice Blends
I love Gaby Dalkin of What’s Gaby Cooking and her spice blends are excellent! I especially love her Go-To Blend of garlic, herbs and peppery spices, but she has several different varieties available online.
