Go Holiday Shopping
You can shop or just stand in awe of the decorations at Galeries Lafayette, a premier department store in Paris, located on the famous Boulevard Haussmann in the 9th arrondissement. The elaborate window displays are among the draws to Au Bon March?, also a department store. Or, spend time in the Christmas markets located throughout Paris for hand-crafted toys, ornaments and souvenirs.

Indulge in Sweet Treats
Warm up in a caf? or p?tisserie with a hot cup of coffee and a beautifully designed pastry, macaron or, of course, chocolate. Specialty pastry and chocolate tours with tastings are offered in Paris with an expert food connoisseur. Or, explore the many shops sprinkled throughout the city on your own.
