French Entertaining and Hostess Gifts
Tis the season for gifting and entertaining so I thought it would be fun to put together a French-inspired entertaining and hostess gift guide.
The French love to host dinner parties and the holidays are no exception. So, if you’re hosting this year or have a friend hosting a holiday event here are some French-inspired entertaining and holiday gifts to give or ask for.
All of these ideas are practical and functional for any Francophile plus they will make the next dinner party, whether for holidays or just a Saturday night, fabulous, chic, and you will feel French in no time.
I’ve included all the items a French hostess will need and even a little beauty for the hostess as well.
1. Candles, Accessories, And Books
What better way to set the mood than with a beautiful-smelling candle either from Diptyque or a diffuser from Trudon? Along with the candle, you could give this beautiful MERSEA wick trimmer or candle snuffer.
Books are also a great gift for a French hostess such as In Love With Paris, A ‘TABLE Cookbook, or Paris Chic.
- MERSEA Candle Snuffer
- MERSEA Wick Trimmer

- A’ TABLE Cookbook
- Diptyque Candle and Carousel Set

When it comes to French entertaining, glassware can help set the table and make it beautiful and elegant looking plus it’s an unexpected gift. Go with glassware that’s vintage-looking or etched.

3. Everything For The Table
A beautifully set table can make all the difference when it comes to French entertaining, but it doesn’t take much and shouldn’t feel overwhelming. A good hostess will always appreciate the idea of something for the table.
