If you’re a sun and sand type of person, you’re in luck because France has a beach for pretty much every type of beach goer. A few weeks ago, Tom and I headed to the Charente-Maritime department of France and drove to the Ile de Ré for the day. Just a short drive from La Rochelle, it’s officially made my short list of favorite places in France. The island just feels good and that’s the only way I can describe it.

Some of the best gifts I’ve found for people have been from bloggers’ recommendations. I often learn about new-to-me products and services from the blogs I read — things like books, travel gifts, and even clothes. While recently in Saint-Emilion, I discovered Rewined candles at a gift shop after the wine-inspired label caught my eye.

Here’s why Rewined candles and soaps might just make a perfect gift for someone in your life!
