Categories : "OUT" in Paris, published on : 12/1/23

More than any other time of the year, Paris currently deserves its nickname of City of Lights. With its Christmas illuminations sparkling on the avenues, squares and monuments, festive display windows, and shops vying to present the loveliest creative decorations, you will be spoiled for choice. This is why the Hôtel La Conversation has selected a few addresses in the neighbourhood where you can enjoy original and eco-responsible Christmas shopping!


Delightful places in the neighbourhood 

Creative and offbeat, the 15th arrondissement has a strong personality that can be found on every street corner. Perfect for your Christmas shopping, it offers you many gift ideas. Do you like to give books as presents? Just a short stroll from the Hôtel La Conversation, under the market halls which run alongside the Parc Georges Brassens, is the Old and Used Book Market. Held every weekend, it sells wonderful items such as original editions and engravings. For a complete change of pace, you can browse the aisles of the brand-new Ateliers Gaîté shopping centre and browse the offerings of big brands and new designers. Finally, check out the Marché de Noël de la Ressourcerie Créative, a completely eco-responsible Christmas market. From clothing to decorations, everything is tastefully upcycled.


The most beautiful illuminations 

After your shopping spree, go and admire the beautiful Christmas decorations of Paris. The Champs-Élysées and Place Vendôme remain the great classics, but you’ll also want to discover the magnificent luminous bear of the Village Royal, Rue Royale, the candy cane sky of Bercy Village and the astonishing Rue des Bulles, Rue des Martyrs. The Hôtel La Conversation team will share with you its favourites and best recommendations. 

At Christmas, Paris is more of a party than ever! With shopping and illuminations, Christmas markets and gourmet tastings, the city is a festive whirlwind of activity.
