Bring Paris to you
Buying a souvenir from the City of Paris’ new, online store isn’t the same as buying one when you’re actually in the City of Lights, but it’s the next best thing. The Boutique de la Ville de Paris launched in December with 250 products on its virtual shelves, from books and stationary to mugs and carafes. The site even sells aluminum garden chairs (€59 to €199) like those found in the Jardin du Luxembourg and at the Place de la République, handcrafted wooden boats (€11 to €63) like those that cruise Paris park ponds, and loose-leaf teas (€15 for 100 grams) from the 160-year-old Mariage Frères tea house. boutique.paris.fr.
