What could be better than finding the latest playground fad or the perfect board game to bring the whole family together for a fun-filled game this winter? Children always take the time to write a long list to Father Christmas and there is nothing more heart-warming than seeing their joy and amazement when they open their presents. So to be sure to make them happy, take a trip to Village JouéClub Paris, La Grande Récré, Au Pullman or Disney Store

There are some presents that will always be welcome, and none more so than a good book to read by the fire, while listening to the latest must-have album. Choosing one is always a nice experience in one of Paris’s many bookshops, thanks to the atmosphere and the sound advice of the staff. And you can’t go far wrong with digital technology, Internet devices and other similar gifts that can be found at the Fnac and other multimedia shops.
