Handbag Lover Gift Guide

The ultimate gift guide for a handbag lover - no matter your budget, there's something for everyone. This was a hit when I did it last year so I've updated it and brought it back again this year. Click the plus signs to see pricing info and visit the online stores to buy.



Budget Buys Under $50




Perfect for anyone who has more bags than they need, stocking fillers, or someone with a wishlist of bags that are out of your budget. You can enhance the inside or outside of their current bags with cute stickers, charms and pouches or card holders. I've included a wonderful example of the bag hook I've raved about before, perfect gift for a mum. And of course there's the handbag raincoat for someone who has everything!



Mid-Range Marvels Under $200




Perfect for that special someone you have a little more money set aside for. You can get small accessories like card holders from a brand you know they love, or even treat them to a little piece of a brand they've always admired but never bought. Mini and micro bags come into this price range and make great gifts. Well worth saving up for.



Surprising Splurges - Over $500





Perfect for anyone who has an expensive taste in bags, unwrapping one of these for Christmas would be an incredible surprise. Safest to stick to neutral colours if you're spending big. Buy for yourself after a lot of research or for someone else after receiving a lot of hinting, and maybe a lotto win!

Hope you found this useful! Will you be buying any bags or bag related gifts this Christmas?

I love all the bags and accessories you've shared here. Speaking of, I love that you included bag charms because they can be used for so many different bag styles, it's such a versatile gift and one any bag lover would love!

  14. Love this handbag collection!
    I got my first bucket bag this year and I'm glad it was on sale ;-)

    I admire you how you manage to keep up the good work with this blog, while having a job, a dog and a kid. Since we got a dog for a year now, it is so hard for me to manage everything - still keep blogging but not frequently, which is sad. Any tips on that? ;-)

    Love,

    1. It is tricky! I had a good routine in place before kids came along that helps - just figure out how much time a day you want to or can devote to it and what you want to achieve with that time! :)

  28. I was shopping with my friends over the weekend and stumbled upon a brown fluffy bag charm. At first I thought "these aren't my thing." Then I flipped it over and noticed it was Chewbacca! lol Being the huge Star Wars fan I am, I debated my entire tastes in bag charms. (;
