Bonjour! For the third day of Christmas, check out three themed gift ideas based on a few famous French (or not so French) “hens”. Enjoy the inspiration for the foodie, fashionista or artist in your life.Little Black Dress on Flee Fly Flown

Coco Chanel on Flee Fly Flown Coco Chanel – The woman is a bit of a given, but how could I not feature her? For the fashion-savvy lady who favors classic French fashion, why not give the gift of Coco.

(Start with a classic “Little Black Dress” with a slate houndstooth twist, $199)

Coco Gifts on Flee Fly Flown

Left to right: The Gospel According to Coco Chanel Book, $12. Chanel No. 5 Perfume, from $95. Chanel-inspired Pearls, $55.

Champagne on Flee Fly Flown
Julia Child on Flee Fly Flown Julia Child – Ok, so she  isn’t technically French, but she does have a handle on the ins & outs of French cooking. I think she can help us American ladies master that art (or at least make an attempt, anyway).

(French champagne is always a good way to get cooking)

Foodie gift inspiration on Flee Fly Flown

Mona Lisa – Not technically French either, but the woman does hang out in a former palace-turned-museum in the dead center of Paris. Therefore, the Mona Lisa represents my 3rd French hen, being the artist or art lover in your life.Museum Membership Pass on Flee Fly Flown

(This one is hard to represent visually, but why not give the gift of a membership to your local museum? Pictured to the right is the Milwaukee Art Museum)
