If you find yourself in need of a break from shopping this holiday season, why not stop by your la Madeleine and finish your shopping while sipping a latte? We have a variety of small, unique gifts that are sure to please the palates of everyone on your list.
C’est it in French
Our new French Lessons CD, “C’est it in French,” was produced in response to a San Antonio guest who suggested the idea to one of our directors of operations. For many years, guests have enjoyed our fun French lessons in the restrooms of their la Madeleine, so we thank him for pushing us to re-edit and produce a take-home CD. Learn common French phrases in the comfort of your own home, where we’ll help you master several basic phrases such as “je t’aime,” which means, “I love you!” But please don’t wait too long, as quantities of these CDs are limited.
Santé for new la Madeleine French Wines
Say “santé!” (“Cheers”) and complete your holiday menus with our new la Madeleine French wines. It has been a few years, so we are excited to reintroduce two proprietary wines, available to our guests by the glass or to share by the bottle. In some cafés the wines can also be purchased to take home. Our la Madeleine Chardonnay-Viognier blend is the perfect complement to poultry or pork dishes, and our Cabernet Sauvignon-Merlot blend is perfect for heartier fare, such as roast beef. A bottle of la Madeleine® French wine would make a wonderful hostess gift to pick up on your way to a holiday party! As always, wines are only available for purchase to our guests who are 21 years and older, and we encourage you to please drink responsibly.
la Madeleine Handmade Truffles
If you plan to attend a holiday soirée this season, your hostess will say “merci beaucoup!” when you present her with a gift box of la Madeleine homemade truffles. Sold in 4- or 8-piece boxes, our handmade truffles are inspired by our signature pastries. The truffles are wrapped in a beautiful pewter-colored quilted box, wrapped with a satin bow and gift tag. Flavors: dark chocolate raspberry, cappuccino, coconut and double chocolate.
la Madeleine Confiture Fruit Spreads
One of the joys of la Madeleine is our signature bread and jam spread. The classic la Madeleine “appetizer” of sourdough, seven grain or country wheat bread with your choice of our strawberry rhubarb or blackberry jam is one of the many delights of dining at la Madeleine. We are excited to bring back our la Madeleine confitures by the jar for this holiday season. In petite tureen style jars, our confitures make fantastic stocking stuffers, hostess gifts, or even secret Santa gifts for the la Madeleine lover in your office. Wrap our strawberry rhubarb or blackberry confitures with a french baguette. Bon appétit!
Like always, you can pick up our homemade tomato basil soupe and Caesar salade dressing by the jar. We also have our signature American, French and French Decaf roast coffees available for purchase. (Our French roast is available year-round; American and French Decaf are brought in during the holidays only.) As you can see, we have an abundance of gift options in café to make completing your shopping list a bit more enjoyabl
And for those on your list who are hard to shop for, la Madeleine gift cards may be the answer.
