Trees sparkle, windows are brought to life and it smells like roasted chestnuts. It’s sure, Christmas is here, and in Paris no one can resist the joy of the Holidays. Printemps Haussmann is no exception to the rule! For this Christmas 2018, this Parisian department store concocted animations for the entire family and for everyone’s taste. You’ll like this time of the year even more!
First, let’s pop in Printemps de la Femme to discover the Monde de Marni [Marni’s World]. This temporary area hides in the atrium and invites you to find unique presents for your family (and maybe yourself, who knows?). And for good reason. We discover exclusivities especially created for Printemps Haussmann. Accessories and clothes for women are to be shopped starting from €60. And for an even more original gift, you’ll discover at the foot of one of the fir trees of the atrium, a bracelets and necklace customization studio available until January 6, 2019.
Children are not left out! On the 6th floor of the Printemps de l’Homme, you’ll find a 300-sqm space designed in partnership with La Grande Récré. Until January 16, 2019, children can make the best of it to take part in creative workshops while parents are shopping. For instance, on November 28 and December 1, 2018, children can take part in a bouncing, scented or fluorescent modeling clay workshop. Another example: from December 10 to 16, 2018, they can create a 2-m high Lego character with 23,000 pieces.
And since there’s no Christmas without Santa Claus, the star of the presents sets up his studio within the Grande Récré area from December 1 to 23, 2018. On Wednesdays and Saturdays, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., Santa Claus strikes a pose with kids and of course, the encounter is immortalized with a picture!
For the biggest Geeks among you, head to the Smartech Pop Up Store set on the ground floor at Printemps de l’Homme. Until December 31, 2018, you can unearth super high-tech present ideas through a selection of innovations from all over the world. USB lipstick, smart drones and even a printer for smartphones, you’ll find you’re and your closed ones’ happiness for a budget starting from €35.
Beauty addicts will also celebrate Christmas. This time, they’re expected at Printemps Beauté. At level -1, you’ll find an all-in-one beauty salon. Gloss Up nail bar , a hair salon, Coiffirst, Nuxe and Clarins spas, you’ll have your favorite brands. Open by appointment, this beauty salon has many surprises in store, so keep your eyes peeled.

On the occasion, you’ll be given a nail art and a floral cocktail all this while listening to music!
On December 8, 16 and 22, 2018, L’Artisan Parfumeur set on the first floor of this Printemps Beauté invites you to a creative event. In partnership with Bloom’s, you can create a vegetal Christmas wreath and enjoy advice thanks to demonstrations.
Finally, at Printemps du Goût, you’ll tastefully celebrate Christmas. Yes, from December 1 to 31, 2018, Christmas menus are out.
