For a one-stop fab festive experience, you don’t even need to set foot outside The Peninsula Paris. See-and-be-seen Terrasse Kléber – the city’s largest enclosed terrace – transforms into a charming, super-stylish, Christmas tree-lined, seasonal market for the month of December.
Lovers of iconic Steiff teddy bears will be in heaven, as the festive market will sport Steiff Christmas decorations as well as a tempting selection of the furry little fellas. Discerning gift seekers can also snap up timelessly chic gloves by Causse, classic toys and games from 1836-launched emporium Au Nain Bleu, Norwegian-crafted decorations from Jippi, and mood-enhancing home fragrances from Esteban (your go-to for luxe scented candles and room sprays), as well as select special items from The Peninsula.
Swing by for some boutique Christmas shopping or simply tap into the festive mood, with gourmet dining and drinking adding to the party. Be sure to slalom over to the Seafood Chalet, where chefs will be serving top-notch oysters, salmon, caviar, lobster and that yuletide essential sea urchin (!), complemented by white wine, seductive champers and wintry vodka.
Need to warm up? Then mosey on to the Sweet Chalet, which will be pouring mulled wine with a liberal hand, and dishing up delicious crêpes, waffles, hot chestnuts and pretzels. The dress code is smart casual, so ditch that bobble hat!
