And who better to advise on what is sure to have every Parisienne or wannabe Parisienne smiling on Christmas morning? As the yuletide shopping countdown continues, we share a little French festive flair with our top ten Paris-inspired gift picks. Think: timelessly elegant Chanel with an unexpected cool 2013 twist, scented and 100% sexy candles, beauty treats worthy of any chic Vogue girl and indulgent shoe lust-haves galore. Joyeux Noël, as we say here in Paris.
