French word of the day: paquet cadeau

Def: gift wrapping

Gifting is big in Paris. When you buy something, and the vendreuese knows it’s un cadeau, they wrap it gorgeously in layers of tissue, paper, ribbon and adornments. And when you buy flowers for someone, the bouquet gets the same treatment. J’aime ca bien.
