The most chic and secret Christmas market in Paris

Gift box

Imagine a very discrete side door. A cosy tea-time with cakes and cookies or then a wonderful happy hour…

A Christmas market nestled in a secret paved courtyard at the heart of renovated former stables.

You just cannot wait to go? This exceptional place is called NAG— it’s the arty and ultra-confidential venue to go check out, a skip and a hop from place Victor Hugo, open by Natasha Dassault, just a few weeks ago, conceived as a Parisian style Xmas Market like a chic and ephemeral bazaar all week-end long.

The must? Show up for happy hour on Thursday with warm wine and a super cocktails bar … A golden alibi to come have a drink with the gals and pick up some very unusual gifts!

So just take a tour of this wonderful intimate Christmas market, glass in hand, and rummage around for the ideal gift and small luxuries. A candle by Secret Apothicaire (the new Dyptique !) at 40€, cufflinks signed Samuel Gassmann and kntted ties designed by Maison F—the two must-have snobbisms for real Parisians—­ a multitude of bags and curios with exquisite taste, picked up in Morocco by Natacha Dassault herself. Also check out a wide array of bracelets, bathrobes, plaids or cashmeres from 5€ to 300€.

We adore: the food stand with small “wowie” gifts at affordable price tags: great jams at 6€, good bottles of wine or truffle products leave under the tree for a real foodie.  Ho, ho, ho!

Photo fans can treat themselves to a discount ticket -20% to be immortalized by the Harcourt studios. Just the kind of offer that is very hard to come by. And for collectors: exceptional prints by Olivier Dassault.

We said Chic, remember that!
