Are you one of those people who thinks Valentine's Day is just a devious corporate conspiracy to get us to spend more money? Do you eschew gifts in favour of a back rub or a special dinner at home? Maybe you ignore Valentine's Day completely? Well then I have just one piece of advice for you - you better make sure your partner is on the same page. I love a coupon for a "free hug" as much as the next gal, but I'm also expecting a gift. It doesn't have to be expensive - I'm good with vegan chocolate and a soy candle. Oh, and a handbag. You can never have too many of those.
In that spirit I want to show you the latest two handbags in my collection. Not only do they make a great Galentine's or Valentine's gift for a friend, family member or partner, but they are seriously great little treats to give yourself. And it doesn't have to be Valentine's Day for that.
First of all I can't resist a heart motif. Hearts are just so youthful, fun and uplifting. This Valentine's Day, I'll be carrying this Pink Haley Pop Heart Tote from O.co. (It comes in pink, black and white too!) As you can see, it's on the large side, so it's great for toting around all your stuff. This handbag has dual 8-inch top handles, plus a detachable and adjustable shoulder strap. It's faux leather so it's kind to our animal friends.
Another large-sized handbag for the gal who likes to tote a bunch of stuff around (that's me!), this Sacs of Life Fab Bag has a faux fur black and white exterior that's really cute and fun. It's so roomy that I think it would make a great bag to carry on a plane or a weekend road trip.
Sacs of Life was created by Annette Ferber, an American handbag designer who set out to develop a line of innovative, eco-friendly handbags and travel bags that would make life a bit easier for women. A hands-on mom of four and seasoned traveler, Annette debuted her bags here in Canada on The Shopping Channel just this month.
Stylish and functional, my Fab tote has two outside pockets - one zippered and one with a toggle closure - so you can keep your most necessary items handy. I also love this vegan-friendly tote in black and eggplant and this reversible two-colour tote in black and stone.
My tote is actually three bags in one. It comes with a pretty matching makeup bag/wallet (that my daughter is now trying to take from me) and a bonus full-size black shopping bag (not shown) that you can conveniently grab from the inner pocket when you make an impromptu purchase and you want to save plastic bags.
How about you? Do you like to give and get gifts for Valentine's Day?
And what kind of handbag would you like to add to your collection?
