Gifts for gourmets
Many people love to discover delicious edible gifts, but you need to know where to find them! Here are a few addresses that will delight the epicureans Sirop de la Rue in Vieux-Lyon (Old Lyon) and Epicerie Abel in Ainay sell a range of quality produce. For chocolate-lovers, try the famous coussins at Voisin !
Gifts linked to Lyon’s traditional industry
In Lyon, silk is sacred. For those who like fine fabrics, we recommend visiting the new shop Brochier Soierie at the Grand Hôtel-Dieu. And how about a unique item from Sophie Guyot or a beautiful wild silk scarf from CathAm ?
Gifts that don’t hog space under the Christmas tree
It doesn't need to be big to make an impression. In Lyon’s 1st district, you can find beautiful jewellery at shops like Bagouse or Sophie Mouleyre, on the slopes of Croix-Rousse hill, including fantasy, precious, tailor-made and limited-edition jewellery.
Gifts for curious minds
These little envelopes are an invitation to explore Lyon in a different way, throughout the year. You don’t need to go far: the Tourist Office sells gift vouchers that can be used to enjoy all our activities.
How about buying a ticket for a show? Greater Lyon has a rich cultural offering, with something for all tastes, such as the Opéra de Lyon or the Maison de la Danse. For something a bit different, try a magical evening at Cirque Imagine or a tour of Lyon in a Wagon Bar.
The festive season in Lyon would simply not be the same without its Christmas Markets, such as those on Place Carnot and Boulevard de la Croix-Rousse. They offer a great way to combine Christmas shopping and a pleasant morning or afternoon with loved ones and friends.
For those who like to give original and unique gifts, discover Lyon’s pop-up stores, where you can meet creative designers who, for a few weeks, are opening physical showcases for their e-shops.
Happy Christmas shopping!
