A Mother’s Day Gift She’ll Never Forget: a Trip Through France

Celebrating with Champagne, Paris

As Mother’s Day approaches, the options for gifts are endless. But in reality, there’s one thing moms actually want: quality time with their kids. This year, give the gift of time together with a chic twist–spending that time on a journey through the heart of France. 

In honor of Mother’s Day, I’ve created a lavish mother/daughter adventure where every moment is curated to create cherished memories that will last a lifetime.

This 9-day trip weaves through the iconic landscapes of Versailles, Paris, and Champagne, where the essence of France's rich history, culture, and cuisine awaits. From the opulent halls of Versailles to the charming streets of Paris and the picturesque vineyards of Champagne, this itinerary promises an immersive experience like no other. 

Highlights include: "The Feast" at Restaurant Alain Ducasse, a recreation of a royal 18th-century banquet; shopping for the latest in French fashion at the boutiques in Le Marais; creating your own fragrance with a maître parfumeur to cherish forever;  guided tours with an art expert of Musee d'Orsay and the Louvre; and a stay at Royal Champagne Hotel & Spa for relaxation, and a few tastings, bien sûr!

This Mother’s Day, give your mom the trip of a lifetime – with the person she most wants to share it with: you. Bon voyage!
