This year again, department stores and renowned brands will offer you a wonderful Christmas in -ique: magical and magical, romantic...

We will take you through the forest, in Scandinavia, in the land of elves or in the heart of a German Christmas market.

On the fronts of most of these shops there will be pretty plastic fir branches covered with synthetic snow.

Well, there's still a catch, and you already know it, their cynical marketing will tell you their most beautiful stories for sometimes astronomical gifts, most often made on the other side of the world by little hands who are not not paid a brick without any climatic consideration... It's really not very chic...

So it's sure, it's practical, downstairs from us, on the corner of the street, we always find an eclectic offer of products in tune with the times (three months, if not less) made in crappy.

Authentic and responsible gifts

Don't panic, this year, even more than other years, let's support and buy locally made gifts, think made in France, let's buy ethically, no fakery, no intoxication, just authentic, quality, best for the planet, made by fairly paid women and men and so good for our territories.

A selection of gifts made in France

A scarf made in France? You will have the choice between several brands made in France: Maison Izard and its wool from the Pyrenees, La Gentle Factory and its recycled wool or even La Française for pep' tones made in Normandy!

A piece of jewelry made in France? It's certain, Bearded Women will catch your eye: fair price, impeccable design and the jewelry is made in Montreuil.

Would you like to have some sweets? sweets from the Sophie M brand, tangy to take you back to your childhood, whose box becomes a vintage-looking piggy bank.

Support made in France at Christmas too

As you see, offering something magical and ethical, something local, is not contradictory. Let's be pragmatic, let's make fun of all these not very friendly brands who really don't want the best from us.

At L'Appartement Français and also in the collective network of made in France boutiques spread throughout the country you will find something to please your loved ones and those you cherish.
