Handbags are no longer reserved for women. Men love to use a great bag as well. Handbags are the most functional and sought-after accessories in the fashion industry.
They withstand most weather elements, and they look polished with any outfit. There are so many styles and versions of handbags out there. To lessen confusion, here are five great bags you can give your significant other this holiday season.
1. The Leather Satchel
The leather satchel is the perfect everyday handbag for every man or woman. This medium-to-large sized handle bag carries everything you need on a regular basis. You can store your laptop or tablet, smartphone, books, folders, and more. It takes all of your essentials. Choose one in a neutral shade like black or dark brown. Stay away from handbags that have designer logos or hardware since they’re trendy and often dated.
2. The Crossbody Handbag
The crossbody is another bag that’s ideal for everyday use. It gives you the freedom as you run errands, buys groceries, or chase your kids around. It makes a better gift than a backpack or messenger bag. Think of it as a gender-friendly, grown-up version of either of these bags. An excellent crossbody bag has an adjustable strap that’s long enough to sling over your chest. The handbag should be medium sized, so it’s small enough to carry but not so big that you feel weighed down.
3. The Classic Tote Bag
Every woman needs a classic tote. The tote bag is also perfect for men on the go. It’s a good way for anyone to look polished and put together. If you carry a laptop to and from the office, then you’ll need a tote bag. If you’re not taking much else other than your phone, makeup bag, and your wallet, you can still use a tote bag. Just use a smaller sized one in a canvas material. Custom tote bags add a personalized touch and make your significant another feel as if they own a one of a kind.
4. The Shoulder Bag
Shoulder bags are just as chic as tote bags. However, they have more of a sporty appeal that makes them great for both men and women. Shoulder bags come in a variety of styles and textures such as suede, leather, and canvas. A suede or leather shoulder bag is ideal for the fall and winter months, while a canvas bag is light enough to carry around in the summer. The options for shoulder bags are varied, so it’s worth spending money on one that fits your style and budget.
5. The Designer Handbag
Everyone loves to have a designer handbag in their wardrobe. You want to choose one that’s sure to last for several years and never goes out of style. There’s always the classic Chanel chain strap bag or the iconic Birkin bag. Both of these bags are not only classics, but they look great with almost anything. The Chanel handbag is the LBD (little black dress) of the purses.
This is the only holiday guide you need to find the best bag for your significant other. The bags listed here are typically low to expensive options. Always determine your budget before shopping for your significant other.
