Surprisingly cheap and easy! It only took me two minutes to buy a souvenir from France! Summary of recommended souvenirs and mail order sites

Some people are looking forward to going to France, but find it hard or depressing to buy many souvenirs.

I’ve always had a hard time choosing souvenirs for my company and family. There are times when I can’t find what I’m looking for and have to go from store to store…

So I was curious, and I bought a French souvenir by mail order, and it was so easy to choose in two minutes! .

It was surprisingly inexpensive, and I was very satisfied to be able to easily change souvenirs with sophisticated packaging.

Of course, my workplace and my family were also pleased, and I also had a meaningful time in France.

In this article, I will introduce French souvenirs that can be bought by mail order, recommended mail order sites, and points to note.

★I compared five French souvenir shopping sites, and the cheapest and highest quality was JTB Shopping. You can buy chocolates from famous brands for about $12. If you’re looking to buy some souvenirs, check them out!

I bought French souvenirs by mail order, and it was so easy to choose in 2 minutes

.

Since I often struggle to choose souvenirs there, I decided to prepare my French souvenirs in advance through mail order sites.

At first, I was worried about many things…

What I was worried about before buying

  • Isn’t it really more expensive than buying locally?
  • Will the souvenirs be in Japanese?
  • How does it taste?
  • What kind of condition will it arrive in?

I bought it using JTB Shopping and found out the following.

My impressions of actual mail order purchases

  • Surprisingly cheap
  • Packages without Japanese notation
  • Tasty and high quality products purchased by JTB group
  • Delivered with careful packaging

I should have tried this sooner! I’m so glad I did.

It only takes two minutes to choose a souvenir and five minutes to complete the purchase process.

It was like a lie that I had been frantically searching for souvenirs in the past….

I also found it easy to use when I forgot to buy a souvenir.

Merits of buying French souvenirs by mail order

I have actually bought French souvenirs by mail order and found the following advantages.

  • Make your time there worthwhile
  • You can choose a delicious souvenir
  • Easy to know the number of pieces and weight
  • Not that much more expensive than local prices
  • Doesn’t add to your luggage while travelling
  • You don’t have to spend money on transportation to souvenir stores locally
  • Delivered with care
  • You can choose the delivery date and time in advance

Make your time there worthwhile


France is the world’s largest tourist country. Your time there is precious and you want to visit as many places as possible.

You can make the most of your time in France by shopping for souvenirs in advance.

When you are there, you can enjoy shopping for yourself and visiting museums.

Tasty souvenirs to choose from


When you are looking for souvenirs locally, you may end up buying very sweet chocolates or souvenirs that are not to your Japanese taste…

However, at souvenir shopping sites, they carefully select French souvenirs that Japanese people like, so they are all delicious.

I often buy souvenirs from “JTB Shopping“, and they are always delicious and safe.

Not that much more expensive than local prices


I used to think that if I tried to buy French souvenirs by mail order, it would cost double or triple the price.

But I was wrong. I was able to buy them for almost the same as the local price!

For example, the famous “chocolate crepes from Maximam de Paris” cost about $12 per box.

The “Maximum de Paris” products available in France cost 10-15€ ($12-$18), so the price for souvenir shopping is not expensive at all.

They cost way less than I thought they would!

No more luggage while traveling


If you buy too many souvenirs, they can become a burden and a hassle to move and pack.

Especially boxes of cookies and chocolates are bulky…

It’s also hard to charge for overweight suitcases when you check them in, and not having more luggage during your trip is a big advantage.

Delivered with care


The “JTB Shopping” I used delivered my French souvenirs very carefully.

The delicate chocolate crepes arrived safely.

In the past, the boxes have sometimes gotten messed up in my suitcase, so it is nice to have them delivered in a clean condition.

You can choose the delivery date and time


One of the most pleasant things about this service is that you can choose the date and time of delivery.

You can have your souvenirs delivered according to your schedule before your trip.

Most of them can be delivered in about four days from the date of order.

Cosmetic is good when you consider the local transportation costs and time


The price of the souvenirs themselves will be a bit higher than buying them locally, but considering the transportation costs and time spent visiting souvenir shops, it is a very cost-effective option. .

I often buy a lot of souvenirs, and sometimes I have to take a cab and spend extra money…

If you choose your souvenirs in advance, you can avoid spending transportation costs and time there.

More than 100 types of French souvenirs can be bought by mail order

French souvenirs are often purchased by mail order, and there are over 100 different types to choose from.

Even the popular website, JTB Shopping, had 114 different French souvenirs to choose from!

You can buy the following souvenirs online.

  • La Mer Pral’s caramel sable
  • Chocolate crepes from Maxim’s de Paris
  • Mini Macaroon Set
  • Truffle chocolate set
  • French tarts
  • Cheese Crepe Cookies
  • Mini Galette Cocoa Sable
  • Salted Caramel
  • Marie Antoinette Tea
  • Brogogne Sardonnay
  • Marseille soap

I especially recommend this one! French souvenirs available by mail order

Spare 50 pieces for a good price

The Mombana Assorted Chocolate Box contains a whopping 50 pieces of chocolate.

The price is quite cheap at $18.46.

Mombana is a long-established chocolate manufacturer in France.

The colorful packaging makes these chocolates fun to choose!

They are individually packaged, so they are perfect for workplaces where there are many people to hand out. .

 

The famous sable is also individually packaged for easy distribution!

The famous “La Mer Pral” sablé is also available in individual packaging.

When you buy them in France, they are not individually packaged and it is difficult to distribute them…

These sablés also come in packs of 20, making them an easy souvenir to give away.

A box of sweets to give to someone special

For a boxed treat to give to someone special, I recommend the Chocolate Crepe from Maxim’s de Paris.

These chocolates are made by a long-established luxury restaurant in France and are very delicious.

You can buy one box for $12.82, which is not that different from the local price.

Frequently asked questions about souvenir shopping sites

Does the souvenir have Japanese writing?


→The souvenirs themselves are imported from France and are not marked in Japanese.

However, when they are imported, they are given a sticker that lists the ingredients in Japanese.

This sticker is weak and easy to remove, so it can be removed cleanly without damaging the package.

If you remove the sticker, there will be no Japanese notation, and you won’t know that you bought the souvenir by mail order.

How long does it take to receive my order?

→”JTB Shopping” takes 4 days to arrive from the date of order.

You can specify a date and time after 4 days when you place your order and have it delivered.

At HIS Chikyu no Tabi Ichiba, the delivery date varies depending on the product.

Some products can be delivered the next day at the earliest, so if you are in a hurry, try using this service.

Can I return an item?

→It is not possible to return grocery souvenirs.

If an item is faulty, you can return it within 7 days.

If you are unsure, you can try to buy a little at a time.

 

Check the product you received

When you receive your souvenir, check the contents first.

If there are any defects, you can return it to the store, so make sure you check it carefully.

Along with the product, you will also find a delivery note and a piece of paper with how to store your souvenirs.

Some items are delicate in nature, so be sure to check the storage instructions carefully.

Removing the Japanese sticker

Before handing over the souvenir, remove the import sticker from the package.

This sticker has a weak adhesive strength and can be easily removed.

Neat package, no scratches!

Now you can give your souvenirs with peace of mind.
