Your Gift Guide to the world: French Blue

Holidays may have been put on hold and borders may be closed for the time being, but you don’t have to travel the world to get a hold of some of its greatest treasures. We caught up with Catherine Matthews, owner of French Blue, to find out her instore recommendations.



All the way from Mexico; calf skin tote bags and glassware are a popular pick.

Make your way over to Europe with French linen and linen tea towels then pop on over to Portugal with Rua Nova tableware.

A lovely rack of Ilse Jacobsen coats, raincoats and wind jackets from Denmark hang front and centre.

And it wouldn’t be a gift guide without recommending their assortment of gift cards.

Who said you just had to visit French Blue to purchase gifts for others… treat yourself.
