France is a bastion of creativity and passion, and the gifting customs are no exception. It’s always wise to ask your recipients about their gifting preferences, but it never hurts to study in advance.

Fresh Delivered: How to Gift Perishable Delights Without Breaking a Sweat

There are many reasons why you might need to send a parcel of items that might potentially go bad.
