Lauris Jaune Rectangle French Tablecloth 

Lauris Jaune Rectangle French Tablecloth. A yellow tablecloth with lavender designs on an outdoor table in Southern France.

This tablecloth takes its name from Lauris in Provence. A beautiful village perched on a rocky ridge overlooking the Duracne river and Luberon Regional National Park. A family-owned business created this tablecloth in the South of France. The Tissus Toselli family has been making traditional tablecloths since 1933! Gift this to your friend or family member who forever dreams of France. 

Savon de Marseille Soaps

French Savon de Marseille soap. Three blocks of green soap cubes stacked on top each other on a wooden table.

The French love their bread and butter, but most of all, their Savon de Marseille soap. Although authentic 100% natural Marseille soaps are hard to find in Australia, French Affair has got the goods. 

The iconic Savon de Marseille soap made with pure-virgin olive oil has been crafted in the South of France since the middle ages. King Louis XIV made strict rules about how soap makers made the soap. Hundred of years later, only a handful of manufacturers in Marseille still make the Soap using traditional methods.

Eiffel Tower Keyring

Blue Eiffel Tower Key Chain.

Keyrings as gift ideas often get a bad rap for being impersonal - kind of like with gift cards. We say, “no comment”, but in this case, getting an Eiffel Tower keyring for your loved one as a gift is a brilliant idea. Especially when they adore all things France. Carrying a set of keys is standard, whether for home, the office, or the car. Seeing an Eiffel Tower keyring every day can evoke nostalgia or wanderlust. The perfect sweet gesture! Gift it on its own, or create your own French gift hamper and add it to one of many presents. 

Shop your Eiffel Tower Keyring at French Affair. Available in Blue, Bronze, Gold, Silver, Red, Pink and White. 

French Bread Basket - Citron Blanc

French Bread Basket - Citron Blanc. A linen bread basket with four bows on each corner. The bread basket as a lemon and green leavers pattern on it.

Usually, somebody who deeply loves France also appreciates a slower pace of life and savouring the simple moments. So one way to add some more intentionality and slowness to their day is by gifting them a French Bread Basket for their baguettes - the perfect French gift for them to use for their baguettes, croissants, pastries or even linen napkins.
