Rather than going for the classic keychain, why not pick up something from the supermarket for your friends to taste the French culture! Shop for some delicious salted butter caramel sweets, flavorsome and original Dijon’s mustard, canned foie gras, fleur de sel (harvested sea salt), herbs de provence and much more.
You can also find famous French soap, Le Savon de Marseille, for sale at many supermarkets. What’s even better? Supermarket goods are very inexpensive, meaning that you can buy tons of presents without breaking the bank. Not only are they super cheap, they often come in adorable packaging, that can be used as décor after you are finished – just take a look at the beautiful tins of sardines.
