Of course, all the presents do not need to be very useful but at least they should be well thought of.  So in order to help myself and you to decide what in France you can buy for a Baby as a present, I did a small investigation and want to share it with you.

Uff, as you can see I can write and write about the shopping and presents. For me, a present is not just a box of sweets. For me the presents should be well thought of and ideal for a person who is going to receive it. So for a big chocolate lover it is a box of sweets indeed but for a newborn baby, it needs to be a thing that is beautiful, original, special as the little one is! I hope I packed you with some ideas of what you can buy as a present for a baby in France. If you have other ideas and suggestions, please share with me. The more shopping ideas, the better!
