Books, Gift GuidesLast Minute Book Gifts for Your Francophile Friend

parisbooks

There’s always seems to be at least one Francophile amongst a group of friends; if you haven’t found a gift for them (or their kiddos) yet, we’ve rounded up a great list of books you can pick up last-minute on Amazon (thanks Prime!) or at your local book store.

  • Parisian Chic – Written by style icon, Ines de la Fressange, this book is all about the how to dress like a Parisian women…all of the secrets of their effortless glamour, accompanied by chic illustrations!
  • Les Oeufs Verts au Jambon – A classic Dr. Suess Book in French! If she’s a chic maman, this book will spark her little bebe’s French skills! (Also, books are always a great gift since moms are reading all the time to their little ones!)
  • My Trip to Paris Doodle Postcards – Grown-up coloring books are all the rage right now, so this is perfect for anyone really! These postcards are made to be colored in with colored pencil or crayons; then you can mail out to friends and family. (Also a great gift for someone who has been or is planning to go!)
  • Parisienne French – If your Francophile friend is finally going to France this year (after years of dreaming and saving), then get her this book. It’s a go-to guide for local slang and phrases (including a quick how-to on pronunciations), which will come in handy – as she sips espresso at sidewalk cafes, wanders through amazing museums, shops her way through the city, and eats her weight in croissants.

Rebecca Zeijdel-Paz, a native of the Dutch Caribbean island of Curaçao, began her career studying in Milan and Auburn as well as interning at Carolina Herrera New York. Upon moving back to her home island she began merging her experiences abroad with her island as inspiration and at 23, Rebecca founded her jewelry line, BECK.

​BECK consists of a collection full of stunning, island-glam pieces that combine yellow gold with vibrant Swarovski crystals as well as colorful stones like turquoise, amethyst, white quartz and freshwater pearls. Today, after 6 years in the industry each BECK is still handmade by the designer in her ateliers in Curaçao, Miami and New York. Find out more about Rebecca’s current obsessions below!
