Paris patisseries that ship internationally?

I would like to order something special for the holidays (such as macarons) and I am wondering if, aside from Poilane, any Parisian bakeries/patisseries will ship internationally to Canada? Thanks.

  1. I'm pretty sure Pierre Hermé and Ladurée do. It needs to be macarons, as other pastries do not travel well.

      J.P. Hévin does, also to Canada (especially his traveller's cakes).
      Click 'To Order' for details:

      Ladurée doesn't ship macarons, except for Paris and its close suburbs.
      Pierre Hermé doesn't ship beyond Europe.

        My bad, then. But Hévin is an excellent alternative.

          Thanks for the replies. Hevin shoes ship some of their products, but sadly not the macarons.

            Seems with such an international history, Fauchon would ship, and they do have macarons.

              It's just that macarons do not travel well, IMHO.
              They are far too delicate and have to be eaten as fresh as possible.

              While Fauchon does indeed ship abroad, macarons aren't on the list for that, just marrons glacés, different biscuitsand chocolates, honey, jams, etc.
