Christmas shopping and festive display windows

With the coming of Christmas, we’re faced with the eternal puzzle of what gifts to buy for whom. The desire to please must be balanced with the practicalities of shopping in the run up to Yuletide. The answers to these challenges can be found among the capital’s department stores, where fashion and lifestyle are at the forefront. Happily, the Hotel Opera Vivaldi is ideally situated to be your base while you do your Christmas shopping and enjoy the magical spectacle offered by the department store windows!


Top Christmas shopping locations

The Haussmann-Opéra-Saint Lazare district is the epicentre of Parisian shopping. This is the famous triangle that is home to the most prestigious temples of retail such as the Printemps and Galeries Lafayette department stores. In Printemps, for example, you’ll find over 300 exclusive brands awaiting you. Santa Claus will have more than enough to fill his sack!

Venture a little further and you’ll discover other great places for buying gifts or treating yourself. At BHV MARAIS, a luxury version of a bazaar, you will find everything! Then there’s the Bon Marché, a chic and selective department store that combines fashion, art, design and gastronomy. By cultivating this image, the store blends in beautifully with the creative and arty vibe of the Left Bank.


Shop windows bursting with creative flair

Each year at this time, the department stores unveil their colourful and spellbinding Christmas display windows. In Printemps you’ll find a whole world of fantastic characters and amazing animals. A wildly imaginative, funny and multihued world of surprises! Not to be outdone by their old competitors, the Galeries Lafayette are also showcasing some imaginative and charming creativity... This year, the famous store on the Boulevard Haussmann has turned into a real hive of Christmas.
