Father’s Day is Right Around the Corner…

Father’s Day is Right Around the Corner…

It was Mother’s Day in France on Sunday 7th June, and Father’s Day is right around the corner. This year the parents in our lives are especially worthy of our appreciation, after entertaining the kids during many weeks of lockdown due to the Covid-19 crisis. (Not to mention the challenge of balancing children’s remote learning while working from home.)

Or maybe you’ve been missing your parents during this unprecedented time of pandemic social distancing. It’s a moment to celebrate them, tell them how much we miss them. Why not spoil the fathers and mothers in your life with a France-themed gift? Need some inspiration? Whether s/he’s an amateur cook, sports fanatic, or fine spirits aficionado, we’ve rounded up a selection of francophile favourites in our Father’s Day gift guide.

    I would love the calendar but we (in the US) use a different format, starting each week on Sunday. So unfortunately I'm just not used to the Monday to Sunday layout.
