Who doesn’t enjoy Christmas? ๐ŸŽ… ๐ŸŽ… ๐ŸŽ… Christmas lights! Christmas decorations! Christmas trees! Christmas gifts! … Wait a minute. Gifts? I need to find gifts? … Oh crap… Again?! ๐Ÿ˜จ๐Ÿ˜–

Admit it, ๐Ÿ˜ฅ is what you’re feeling like right now, two weeks before Christmas. Sure, you like to receive gifts, but it’s always a bummer to have to find gifts for other people in the crowded shops. So, before you go and buy once again the same pair of socks for your dad or the same useless beauty cream for your mom, keep on reading and you might find the perfect gift for your beloved ones – be they mother, father, wife, boyfriend, regular friend, kids or even pet (alright… maybe not your pet ๐Ÿถ!).

Do you know what everybody likes? French culture ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท! Of course they do. We French are so romantic, we make such wonderful food, we have such a tradition of arts! Plus, we are so friendly! (yes we are! Who told you otherwise?) So, what about giving a piece of France as a Christmas gift? Just for you, here are 3 ideas for perfect gifts for everyone you really love ♥♥ (but a ménage à trois is not part of the list!):


Your mother-in-law is French but she can’t find any French books in libraries downtown? Get right to her heart with an AFC membership: she will be able to borrow French novels and DVDs all year long and attend members-only events to taste great wine. And if you need to forget that you have a French mother-in-law, we have a few good addresses for your own wine collection… ๐Ÿท


Your best friend is always complaining about being single and not meeting new people; AFC is going to change his/her life! Our classes are the best way to meet new people while having fun, and you get to learn a new language! It will even be a bonus on your friend’s resume... omg, you ARE the best friend ever!

DISCLAIMER: we DO NOT guarantee that there will actually be a French kiss at the end of each session. ๐Ÿ˜˜


AFC is organizing 3 incredible classical concerts this winter, and I assure you, you don’t want to miss them! It’s the perfect gift for music lovers, or just to impress your date with your amazing musical culture… “I was looking for someone who would be willing to go with me to this great Chausson concert on Friday…” how great a catchphrase is that?!? ๐ŸŽต

Alors? Are you seduced by our propositions? Of course you are, we're French, we're irresistible ๐Ÿ˜.

Allez, joyeux Noël! ๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ…๐ŸŽ And see you at the Alliance Française Calgary!
