Your Christmas film produced in 72 hours

Family memories are practically sacred, so we often take tons of photos and videos, and then don’t really know what to do with it all. Martin Bothier (ESC 2013) and Rushmix suggest you use all these shots to produce a video compilation. Your memories are therefore immortalised, and with some style. A professional video compilation will be sent to you within 72 hours.

Vineyard-tinged chocolates

Do you wrestle with choosing between chocolate and wine? Have both! “Baies de Bacchus” are the very first chocolate version of grape flavours, including the most popular and well-known varieties. An assortment of eight exclusive, alcohol-free, ganache recipes, based on fruit, citrus fruit and natural flavourings. Selected by Frédéric Donnadieu (EBP 2000), each variety has been interpreted using a pair of aromatic notes taken from a broad pallet of flavours.


Socially aware giving and selling of gifts

We have all received a duplicate gift, or one the wrong size. If this happens to you this year, then give a thought to social responsibility and #bonesprit - you can sell unwanted gifts on, or donate the proceeds from any sale to charity. It also works if you want to give presents in a socially responsible way. This idea from Julien-Pierre Savin (ISLI 2000) means you can spread some happiness from your sale and doing the right thing.

If you love where you live, keep a permanent reminder.

The Gemografic range from Liliya Juhel (ESC 2015) is part of a new generation of jewellery. Each of us has experienced something amazing somewhere, and Gemografic has designed an unusual high-end commemorative piece, whereby you position a pointer and diamond at the location of your choice on the piece, which takes the form of a stylised map of France, based on Google Maps. The GPS coordinates of your chosen location are engraved on the piece. Worn on a bracelet or necklace, and made from 18-carat gold or solid silver, each piece is entirely made in France, crafted to order in our workshops found on place Vendôme in Paris.
