One of the best parts of any vacation, is stocking up on some great souvenirs to take home with you. Okay, so maybe it’s not better than all of the sightseeing and exploring you’ll do, but it’s still a pretty awesome part of a trip.
There are tons of options in Paris for souvenirs, and the neighborhood of Montmartre is no exception. You’re bound to find something to take home so that you can remember all of the great memories you made during your time in the French capital.
Whether your picking up some souvenirs for yourself or your friends and family, head to these shops! Keep reading for my top 5 souvenir stores of Montmartre.
1. Montmartre Village for authentically French souvenirs
Montmartre Village is a souvenir shop that takes its name from the fact that Montmartre used to be a village apart from the rest of Paris.
Owner Cathy’s family has owned the building for years, and they actually used to run a small grocery store out of it. Today, Montmartre Village specialises in souvenirs! It’s truly a treasure trove of items to bring back home with you.
Most of Cathy’s products boast the label “Made in France,” which is rare these days. Choose from bags, miniature porcelain figures, jewellery and treats from Maxim’s, a famous Parisian restaurant!
Opening hours: Every day 9:30am-12am
Address: 11 Rue du Mont-Cenis, 75018 Paris
Metro station: Abbesses
2. Paris Collection for classy clothing souvenirs
Paris Collection is a great place to find souvenirs, but you won’t feel like you’re in a typical souvenir shop when you step inside. It’s a very spacious shop, and the products are very well organized. This feels more like a clothing store than a souvenir bazar!
The shop has it’s own, you guessed it, collection of clothing. Each t-shirt, sweatshirt, hat and purse bears the cute Paris Collection logo. This should be your go to if you’re shopping for family and friends that have a more upscale taste, but still want a little something from your time in Paris!
Their prices are also very reasonable, and here you’ll find great pieces like crewneck sweatshirts that say “Parisienne” across the front. My favorite product has got to be their tote bags!
Opening hours: Every day 9:30am-9pm
Address: 8 Rue de Steinkerque, 75018 Paris
Metro station: Anvers
3. St. Pierre de Montmartre for classic souvenirs
If you’re looking for classic souvenirs like keychains, postcards, posters and shot glasses, St. Pierre de Montmartre is where you should head. I have a few friends that collect shot glasses from different destinations all over the world, and I love this idea!
They also carry magnets, tote bags, drawings, t-shirts, kitchen supplies, figurines, and snow globes alike, all featuring Paris motifs, of course.
The shop takes its name from the Saint-Pierre church, and is located just next door to the Place du Tertre, which is known for its bistros and the artists that set up camp there. I’ll be giving you more information about the Pace du Tertre coming up, as its another great place to go for souvenirs!
Opening hours: Every day 9am-7:30pm, Friday until 6pm
Address: 2 Rue du Mont-Cenis, 75018 Paris
Metro station: Abbesses
4. Pylones Tardieu for unique souvenirs
Pylones Tardieu is a chain of stores throughout France, and they have several locations in Paris. My personal favorite is their Montmartre store.
Here, you’ll find a large selection of unique souvenirs. You’ll find lots of home goods, jewellery, interesting objects and event products for the kitchen and bathroom! Many of their products are also Paris themed, including a tooth brush shaped like the Eiffel Tower!
Pylones Tardieu also has a selection of handblown glass objects, which includes rings, necklaces and earrings, all of which are hand designed and handmade!
Opening hours: Every day 10:30am-7pm
Address: 7 Rue Tardieu, 75018 Paris
Metro station: Abbesses / Anvers
5. Place du Tertre for handmade souvenirs
Place du Tertre isn’t a souvenir shop per se, but I wanted to include it on my list! What’s a better souvenir than a hand drawn or hand painted piece of artwork from Paris?! I would love to get this as a gift, and I’ve been known to do just that for my loved ones’ birthdays!
The place itself is located just 300 meters away from the Sacré Coeur Basilica, and is some people think of the Place du Tertre as the heart of Montmartre. It is a bit of a tourist trap, but I always try to take visitors here anyways. There’s just something about wandering its cobblestones and checking out the artists work that takes me back in time.
You’ll find plenty of art to choose from here, whether it be caricatures, paintings, or drawings. Try to strike up a conversation with the artists, they usually have some pretty cool backstories, and its nice to have a little bit of history behind the souvenir you’re going to purchase!
Head here for souvenirs that you want to keep on display for years to come.
Opening hours: Every day. The Place is open 24/7 as it is a public place, but the artists hours vary. Try to get there in the morning or afternoon!
Address: Place du Tertre, 75018 Paris
Metro station: Abbesses / Lamarck – Caulaincourt
