"Culinary gifts on a budget" Monoprix Tip by jglsongs

Monoprix, Paris: 21 reviews and 16 photos

If you want to bring back food and wine gifts to friends and family, and are on a budget, instead of the higher-priced gourmet shops, try the supermarkets. They carry wines and liqueurs, pates, mustards, confections, spices and more for half the price. Not only do you save money, you'll feel a little more like a native when you browse the aisles with the locals.

What to buy: For the gourmands in your life, try getting them Fluer de Sel (special salt from Brittany) or Crýme de Marrons (chestnut cream - great for crepes).
