However, you’ll be happy to know that Paris is truly a shopper’s paradise with something to suit every budget – you can even find designer wear at affordable prices! But great fashion is not the only thing you’ll find in Paris. Paris shopping offers amazing possibilities; it’s the place to find magnificent art books, the famed French perfumes, crystal and porcelain china, the best champagnes and wines; the latest in beauty care products and let’s not forget, some of the best cheese and chocolates on the planet.

High Fashion

One of the best known areas for Paris shopping, boasting the most magnificent boutiques is Avenue Montaigne. Here you’ll find famous names like Prada, Gucci, and more.

Tip: A visit to these shops toward the end of any season, mainly at the end of summer or winter, will guarantee you superb discounts.

An alternative to the shops on Avenue Montaigne is the well known Faubourg St-Honore, another icon of Paris shopping, where you’ll find great boutiques as well as galleries and antique shops. These antique shops boast the best in period furniture.

Faubourg St.-Honore is also a great place to find the most amazing chocolate shops; just follow the sweet scents of these hand-made treats, and you’ll come across mouthwatering window displays.

This fabulous street is also home to “A La Corbeill De Fleurs”, a renowned French perfume made from a rare combination of flowers.

For centuries, the French have prided themselves for making the most amazing crystal, mainly Baccarat and Lalique, as well as the renowned Limoges porcelain. A must for all shoppers is a visit to any of the shops displaying these beautiful icons of Paris shopping.

Shopping Centers
The Champs Elysees, described as one of the most beautiful avenues in the world, is lined with great shops and restaurants for all budgets. It offers some of the best Paris shopping. On the avenue, you’ll find four small shopping centers: Le Claridge; Elysees 26; Galerie du Lido; and Le Rond Point. Each is well stocked with perfume, clothing and shoe stores, with always the latest in fashion.

The Champs Elysees is also home to the Louis Vuitton superstore, a must see for visitors.

Paris shopping is also about enormous departments stores, selling everything from perfumes and cosmetics to very chic pet ware. What else would you expect in Paris? These department stores are grouped at Boulevard Hausmman; the most important and largest are Printemps and Galeries Lafayette.

Parisians love to shop and they won’t let the weather stop them; so for those rare instances when the skies are grey or there’s a chill in the air, head to Galleries, glass roofed malls built in the 19th century, housing fashion and specialty shops.

Paris shopping has something for everyone, and best of all, it will not break your budget.
