Holiday Gifts from French Museums Online

Haven't found the perfect gift for the Francophile in your life?  Culturespaces, the leading private manager of French monuments and museums, has recently launched an online boutique in French and English; you can see it here.  

The store stocks goodies from all the sites managed by Culturespaces as well as a wide range of specially developed spin-off products. The e-boutique currently has more than 570 items, from all Culturespaces museums, historic monuments and cultural sites including The Cité de l’Automobile, Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild, Greek Villa Kérylos, the Carriere de Lumieres and the Jacquemart-André Museum.

Categories include books, stationery, home, fashion and accessories, games and toys, reproductions and delicatessen.

Another nice site lets you access the shops at Versailles, the Musée d'Orsay, the Louvre, the Matisse and Chagall Museums in Nice (and many more) in one convenient place. For that site, click here.

  1. Wonderful Julie, I am off to take a look at more treasures!

  2. That is a very useful site. Do you know if you can buy tickets online too? Thanks!

    1. Judy,
      I believe you can on the museum's regular sites but I'm sorry I don't know for sure. Good luck!!

  3. Julie, thank you! It feels like a telepatic modus of operation: -)) any time I need something, your blog posts the relevant information (no kidding).

    I was unaware of these sites. The online boutique will certainly spare me the trip to the Chagall musium in Nice! I will be in Cannes for the holiday season having friends for a festive dinner for la Nuit du St Silvestre and the fireworks on the Croisette. Wanted to get some gifts for them, they are very art-minded. Both sites have very good catalogues. I'm ordering the gifts right now...

    Have a great week!

    1. Hi and thanks for the great message. So glad this was helpful and do feel free to add a little something for me on your gift list! That gold ring is quite nice, no? Happy Holidays! :)

  4. Julie, what a rich source of information you are! Thanks for these links to unique gifts that will delight some serious Francophiles on my shopping list! I'm going to include a link to this post of yours in my next newsletter. Merci mille fois! I'm sending you my warmest wishes for a joyful and peaceful holiday season.

    1. Hi Patricia,
      So glad you found things you liked and thanks for linking to me. I'm delighted! I wish you a wonderful holiday as well, wherever you'll be spending it. :)
