Le Cedre Rouge
Le Cedre Rouge is a high quality home decor shop. We love their Christmas section that follows the brand’s unique style! You can find traditional decorations inspired mainly by nature: animal figures, bouquets made with dry branches and very sober monochrome palettes: white (lots of white), gold, silver, red and green. Their figurines are simple yet elegant. So if you are fond of Scandinavian inspired elegant decorations, this is the best shop for you in Paris!

At Fragonard you will find the finest and most delicate Christmas home complements. Indeed, Fragonard is one of the most luxurious and traditional French perfume makers (from Grasse, near Nice on the French Riviera). Dating back from the 18th Century, this maison du parfum is now internationally renowned and for Christmas, the perfume brand also creates a whole collection of festive items perfect for a gift or to dress-up your home. We love their top of the range home-made candles as well as their hand-crafted gift sets. Fragonard’s style is certainly very Frenchy with a Russian touch. All Fragonard’s collections mix the floral yet opulent Russian & Oriental traditional art with hand-written and natural inspirations from Provence, the region where Fragonard was from.
Fragonard, 9 Rue Scribe, 75009 Paris, France
Christmas a Paris
Un incontournable! This is THE Christmas shop in Paris. Open all year round this little enchanted shop is heaven to Christmas addicts. Small, typical, messy and so so Christmassy! Joyeux Noel
Christmas a Paris, 7 rue de Condé 75006 Paris
Le Bon Marche
This is probably the best address in Paris for the serious Christmas connoisseurs. Le Bon Marche only features the best of the best of Christmas items and they only expose new collections, they never repeat. Exclusivity and quality don’t come cheap so don’t expect to find even a small item under the 8ish Euros mark. We would recommend you to visit Le Bon Marche even if you can’t afford it just to experience the most elegant Christmas decoration… like you have never seen before. This luxury department shop also has a Children Christmas section so get your camera ready and get lost in a magical world of luxury and joy.
Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche, 24, rue de Sèvres, 75 007 Paris
Il etait une fois
Again, this is one of our favourite traditional Christmas boutiques. A real institution in Paris as the shop is open all year round and concentrates on Christmas decorations only. If you want to explore an unusual little Christmas shop and find rare and unique pieces, do not hesitate, Il etait une fois is for you!

The Disney Store
It may sound like a “deja vu” or like a too commercial address to you but it is one of Parisian’s favourite shop for Christmas ornaments. Despite the fact that the Disney store specialises in children’s toys and complements, Disney never disappoints and brings the whole Christmas magic to the French year after year. The Paris Disney Store is, without a doubt, a must visit address if you are looking for beautiful Christmas souvenirs from Paris (don’t forget that one of Paris biggest touristy attraction is Disneyland… so you are more than lucky to find lots of items inspired by the French capital :). Belive it or not, from a French perspective, we advise you to pay a visit to the Disney Store in.. the Champs Elysees!
Disney Store, 44 Av. des Champs-Élysées, 75008 Paris, France
Enjoy the magic of Paris and make the most of your stay by exploring the Christmas lights on the Champs Elysees and the stunning lights of the Tour Eiffel, of course. Don’t miss the beautiful “vitrines” of both department stores Le Printemps et les Galleries Lafayette on the Grand Boulevards. Christmas markets will also amaze you while in Paris.
