As I’ve said on many occasions, shopping for Drea is one of my favorite pastimes.
I try to be a strategic shopper, buying gifts throughout the year as something catches my fancy. My finds are sometimes saved for birthdays or Christmas, but very often for absolutely no reason, just because.
What I’m taking to Chicago this time comes under the “just because” category. The Bompard finds were part of the winter soldes in France.
Then there were the special requests: tea, soap and Labello lip balm.
Please tell me if you’re getting bored with this series. I had a final instalment planned for tomorrow.
I’m also canvasing friends about what they like to give French friends when they’re visiting from the States.
