Generic, but amazingly cute Christmas decorations are everywhere in Paris stores.
Wouldn’t it be fun, though, to have a souvenir Christmas decoration with a Paris theme?
La Colomberie and Marché aux fleurs Cité are two places that always have a variety of Paris-themed ornaments during the holidays.
La Colomberie (Christmas à Paris) is a bonus though. If you are in Paris outside the Christmas season, you can still buy a themed ornament or religious ornaments.
At Marché aux fleurs Cité, Valerie Fleurs carries colorful key chains with Paris themes, ideal for hanging on a tree! Their Eiffel Tower key chains are a higher quality than those found at the souvenir stores. Tip: Compare the weight of the towers at different shops before you buy; you will feel a difference.
