No city in the world is better than beautiful Paris when it comes to Christmas shopping, with glittering boutiques, festive markets and giant sprawling department stores all competing to lure you inside for a bargain or two. 

Paris Boutiques

Paris is famous for its hand crafted style boutiques, especially in the Montmartre neighbourhood where a series of small streets are home to some of the finest boutiques in the whole of Paris. Here you will find all kinds of jewellery, clothing, decorative gifts and unusual knick-knacks that you probably wouldn’t find elsewhere.

Paris Christmas Markets

The festive markets that appear all over Paris bring extra warmth and provide great gifts at Christmas. The stalls take the form of little wooden chalets and sell everything from Christmas decorations to toys. As you walk around the markets you’ll constantly get a whiff of spiced bread and mulled wine. 

Paris Department Stores

This is where the serious shoppers ultimately end up and there’s no shortage to choose from, whatever your budget. Printemps and Galleries Lafayette are popular with shoppers looking for a bargain. Both department stores have several floors of designer fashion, cosmetics and perfume.

Christmas is always a great time of year to visit France. Booking cheap flights to Paris at is a great way to experience all of the wonderful shopping opportunities the city has to offer.
