French Christmas shopping, Christmas markets and a Christmas quote

Reading Time: 2 minutes

With the excitement of the World Cup over, we turn our focus to Christmas. We’ve got your Christmas shopping covered whether it be the quintessential Bûche de Noël or gifts for the Francophile in your life (or just yourself) and leave you with a Christmas quote from a famous French poet.

French Christmas

Bûche de Noël

Don’t forget to order your Bûche de Noël soon if you want it for Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. Find out all the delicious variations and where you can get them across Australia in our Bûche de Noël 2022 article.

To find out more about the Bûche de Noël, read last year’s article.

 

Physical French-inspired or French Christmas gifts

A lovely selection of French and French-inspired gifts all available locally in Australia. While Australia Post cannot guarantee postal arrival before Christmas many of these online stores also have physical shop fronts so you can order and collect the gifts yourself. Or alternatively, for catch-ups happening in the New Year, you can order from our French Christmas gift recommendations now to gift later.

 

The gift of French food in Australia

Who doesn’t love French food? Give the gift of French food whether it be cakes, pastries or a French meal with gift vouchers to French patisseries, cafes, and restaurants in Australia.

 

French Christmas market in Sydney

Le Jolly Market is taking over the forecourt of Customs House at Circular Quay but only until Wednesday night. Also in Sydney, the Marché Willoughby is on this Thursday night.

 

Bored and nothing to do?

And if you’re wondering what to do between now and the end of December, check out our what’s on in December article.

 

A French Christmas Quote

C’est Noël : Il est grands temps de rallumer les étoiles…

Guillaume Apollinaire (1880 – 1918)

French Christmas

which translates to

It’s Christmas: it’s time to turn on the stars…

Guillaume Apollinaire (1880 – 1918)

 

How are you spending Christmas? Do you have any annual Christmas traditions?
