best french valentine's day gifts

Here are 25 amazing French Valentine’s Day gifts for the lover of Paris in your life! Just like anywhere else in the world, Valentine’s Day in France falls on the 14th of February and is known as la Saint-Valentin.

Le 14 février, c’est la Saint Valentin en France: la fête de l’amour et des amoureux.

How The French Celebrate Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s day in France is celebrated a little bit like it is in the rest of the world with romantic evenings, fine lingerie, perfumes, and pieces of jewelry. However, be careful, the French celebration of Valentine’s Day is only for people in love, not just friendship gestures. Typically the French do not send cards at all on la Saint-Valentin and additionally, they do not send out Valentine gifts to their friends, only to their lovers. So don’t go about sending all your French friends a friendly Valentine’s day card, they may get the wrong impression.

For the French, Valentine’s Day is truly a couple’s holiday. And like in other countries and cultures, French couples gift one another with chocolates, flowers, jewelry, or romantic evenings. Also, in Paris, some museums, monuments, and cabarets host special events and many restaurants offer a Valentine’s Day menu.
