Purchasing the perfect holiday gift for that special someone in your life often feels like a difficult (if not impossible) task. However, sometimes it’s best to think outside the proverbial box. Beautiful boutique handbags can be the perfect gift, and all it takes is a little bit of observation to choose the right one.
Reasons to Give Handbags as Gifts
If you ask any fashion-conscious individual, they will agree that an outfit isn’t complete without the perfect handbag and shoes. As such, it’s virtually impossible to have too many, and as long as you choose something tasteful and trendy, it’s really hard to go wrong. Some of the reasons you might want to consider giving a handbag include:
- You want to give something that is special and “unique”. Boutiques tend to offer designs that you won’t find in any of your clothing and accessory stores. Whether it’s a unique style or a pattern that fits the recipient’s personality, a boutique offers plenty of options.
- You want to give something practical. While there are certainly plenty of amazing gift options to consider, the truth is that people often end up giving less-than-practical gifts. If you want to give something that the recipient will use, a handbag is a great choice.
How to Choose the Right Bag Style
Handbags come in a variety of styles, colors, and patterns, which can make it difficult for even the most discerning shopper to choose - especially when choosing for someone else. Think about the recipient’s lifestyle and the types of bags they would normally carry, then go from there.
- A tote bag is an excellent choice for parents as they are large enough to hold all the kids’ daily essentials, yet fashionable at the same time. The Haute Shore Greyson Disco Tote offers a beautiful black-and-white design with a bold stripe of pink right down the middle. It even comes with a matching wristlet for carrying cards and cash!
- A clutch is a very small bag that is perfectly sized for holding all the essentials without being bulky. You can find them in traditional styles and colors, such as the Haute Shore Beth Uptown Clutch in black and white, and you can also find bolder patterns, such as in the Haute Shore Beth Hart Clutch with its bold pink stripes.
- A crossbody is an all-around good choice, especially for people who are active. Like its name suggests, it is worn with the strap across the torso for a close fit. Some crossbody bags, such as the Haute Shore Blair Jazz Crossbody, have removable straps to convert into a more traditional handbag.
In some cases, a zippered pouch might be the better option. These are phenomenal for those who travel frequently and like to keep their cosmetics, toiletries, and other items separated and organized. The Shiraleah Capri Zip Pouch with its zesty lemon print is perfect for such a gift. If you want to go the extra mile, consider a set of zippered pouches, instead. This Haute Shore Royal set is perfect for anyone who likes to stay organized.
A beautiful boutique handbag may not be the first item that crosses your mind when thinking about what to give your friends and loved ones for the holidays, but if you really take the time to think about it, it’s actually the perfect gift. It’s practical, pretty, functional, and most importantly, it’s thoughtful.
