If you are looking for ideas for Father's Day gifts for Francophiles, I've got you covered. Even if you aren't looking for something for la fête des pères, but have a France lover or Frenchie wannabe in your life with a graduation day, a birthday, or another special occasion event, these will work for you as well! You really don't need a holiday to buy your favorite Francophile a little something, something, trust me, they will be “très content” with any of these gifts.
Now onto this month's French Finds! Always stuff you need, things I love!
Pour les papas
Saint James Mariniere Shirt
I don't just love mariniere shirts for myself, but also for men! One of my favorite brands, Saint James has this gorgeous one that is very similar to one I just bought for myself!
Kerchief by Cantonment
Men wearing scarves is very common in France and I love this line of kerchiefs from Cantonment (like the Swiss canton perhaps?). They are very manly with illustrations from cars and music and watches and are unique. I like their “woggles” which hold the scarf in place!
Mon Papa Book
This book from Anthony Browne celebrates mon papa à la française. Francophile dads can read it to their kids and start the next generation of Frenchies!
Vie de papa Coloring Book
Vie de papa is a really fun coloring book dedicated to all things dad-related with lots of fun pages to color together!
Vetements (Clothing) + Mode (Fashion)
Boden – Corsica Bikini Top – French Navy
I used to buy from Boden all the time but then stopped while we were RVing and never re-started after our trip. They have always had great clothing, but I am currently digging n their swimsuit separates. The Corsica bikini top – French navy (bien sûr) is really cute. And I like the pairing with the Amalfi fold-over bottoms also in French navy with a white polka dot is perfect!
Albion – Hang Ten Game Changer Swim Crop Top
You know me and my blue and white stripes. If there is a striped shirt, I am on it! That's why I love this swim top from Albion which I would sport with a solid blue bottom,
Macon et Lesquoy Embroidered Brooches
I have been wearing a jean jacket a lot lately while working in my home office. It is easy to slip over just about any top and still looks good. I want to change up the look a bit by adding some fun and I have found these Macon et Lesquoy embroidered brooches to do the trick BUT I cannot decide which one of ones, they are ALL so cute!
- Frenchy T-Shirt
- Baguette + Camembert
- Street Sign
- Eiffel Tower
- Paris Snow Globe
Paris by Night Bracelet
I am not big on jewelry but I love the simplicity of this bracelet from Titlee. It has an adjustable waxed cotton cord, with gilded brass Eiffel Tower and star.
Pour la Maison
Paris Art Print from Fy!
I love the home decor products and prints on Fy and this beautiful Paris print from artist Sabina Fenn is lovely. It is painted with water-based inks on sustainably sourced paper so you can feel good about hanging it on your wall as well. You decide the print size you want et voilà!
Paris Mug – Marks & Spencer
One can never have enough coffee mugs, especially when they are as cute as this Paris one from M&S! It has the Louvre, Moulin Rouge, and other iconic sites on the backside.
Monogram Nails from Anthropologie
I saw these cute monogram letters on sale at Anthropologie and immediately thought about creating the word PARIS. I also think ANDI would be cool too! What would you spell?
Books make the perfect gift for francophiles, I love books set in Paris or about Paris or French life and foods. Here are NEW releases that your Francophile friends and/or family member may not have yet:
