Tis the season! Have you been making your list, checking it twice? Escape the chilly temperatures and warm up in the winter wonderland that is Galeries Lafayette Haussmann. This year’s decorations are arctic-themed: it’s a white-on-white fairytale world starring polar bears. And the famous Christmas tree under the century-old dome has been fashioned—for the first time—out of paper… a unique artistic creation by Lorenzo Papace. Step into an arctic universe and get some shopping inspiration, Paris style. Here we’ve selected some of the fun, exclusive gifts on offer this holiday season. Peruse them below. There’s something at every price point at Galeries Lafayette, and some of the best gifts are of the gourmet variety.

Tip: Win a gift from the Advent Calendar! A window will open every day in Galeries Lafayette’s 55 stores around France (and also online at galerieslafayette.com) to reveal a new surprise from the likes of Lancôme, Burberry, Nuxe, Yves Saint Laurent, Sisley, and other top brands. A lucky shopper will be randomly chosen.

Pssssst. Here’s a special offer. With your purchase, get a gift of six oysters and a glass of white wine on the terrace. The voucher can be printed here.
