By Terry Preciosity Flash Light Elixir ($104)

Nothing says French girl like radiant, creamy skin. Gift this silky elixir to any Francophile who enjoys the finer things in life. 

Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Luminous Matte Lip Colour ($53)

Chanel red is a French-girl staple, but pay homage to the Australian summer with this poppy coral hue. The matte finish will keep it classy. 

Journey Beauty Case ($169)

Is there anything more Parisian than a beauty train case? We think not. This beautiful case from Journey will hold all your giftee's trinkets with ease. All that's left to add is a beret, blazer, and the next train to Paris. 

French Girl Lumière Moonlight Body Oil ($66)

For festive, starlit skin, look no further than this stunning body oil from French Girl Organics. Essential oils and fatty acids mean it's nourishing, too. 

David Mallet Australian Salt Spray ($54)

Textured, French-meets-Bondi waves in the form of this iconic sea salt spray. Wrap this up for anyone who loves messy, soft movement. 

Lancome La Vie Est Belle Purse Spray ($159)

It's common knowledge that French girls carry tiny handbags, so gift her a purse-sized version of her favourite fragrance. La Vie Est Belle is as iconic as it is sweet. With notes of tasty iris and jasmine, this juice will turn all the heads at that Christmas soirée. 

Lush Santa Baby Lip Scrub ($10)

A bitten, pillowy pout is oh so Parisian, and this grainy lip scrub will soften flakes while leaving lips that perfect shade of red.

Sephora Collection Snow Glow Face Palette ($52)

Natural but sparkling skin is everything we care about this festive season. French girls are known for their minimal approach when it comes to complexion, so get inspired and gift this simple palette. It houses two cheek colours, as well as beautiful shimmer that works a treat on the cheekbone, or on the inner corners of the eye.  

Trudon II (Deux) ($299)

French fragrance house Maison Trudon has traditionally only created fine candles, but this year marks its debut into fine fragrance. 'Deux' is a woody, magical elixir that is as mysterious as it is unexpected. Gift it to a Francophile that adores good quality perfume.
