Christmas is coming and to change my habits, I wanted to make special gifts. So I went to Rochefort-en-Terre, a village full of artisans and small stores as pretty as each other.
My goal for the day: Find Christmas gifts for my family members!! I’m used to ordering gifts on the internet but this year I decided to be more original, to enjoy this shopping that usually is stressful in the city. I find Rochefort-en-Terre is the perfect place to find nice gifts. Jewelry, ceramics, glasses, gourmet treats.. So many choices are offered to me that I get lost in them! The illuminations immerse me in the essence of Christmas, all those lights and smells.
I have my list in hand, the artisan stores are rich, I’m sure I’ll find something for everyone on this list. A small handbag for my sister, you can never have enough! A piece of jewelry for my mom, some beautiful and unique glasses for my dad, a basket full of goodies for the grandparents and an arranged rum for my brother. I admit I even cracked, I gave myself a gift!” After doing a good part of the stores, I stop and drink a hot chocolate, it allows me to be able to go around my list.
I have never had so much fun Christmas shopping, the people are welcoming, smiling and good advice. There is this closeness that you can’t find in big shopping malls. A warm and caring atmosphere, friendly and reassuring. If I can, I would not hesitate to do it again next year!!
