BEST BAGS FOR TOTES-AMAZING CHRISTMAS SHOPPING
Shopping is, at Taylor and Jackson, our favourite pastime. There’s an added, altruistic element to Christmas shopping that provides a warm and fuzzy feeling, no matter how cold it might be. Just knowing that you’re shopping for others, to make the faces of loved ones light up when they see their gift on Christmas morning, gives shopping another, truly delightful element.
But in order to hunt the perfect Christmas gift one must be properly prepared. And so, it is entirely right, sensible and correct that you should first invest in a good, sturdy, reliable, yet stylish bag for yourself to put all your purchases in.
The art of shopping
This lightweight Borsa Art shopper bag by Marlon Firenze is perfect for Christmas shopping. Made from high quality leather it has a spacious interior, large zip pocket for safe storage and is big enough for a turkey and a bottle of champagne! It lives up to its arty name too with four delightful colours to choose from. There’s even a ‘middle cut’ version in three colours that allows for larger items.
The Christmas classic
This Luca Large Harris Tweed Tote bag has a distinctly traditional Christmassy feel about it, whilst being perfect for the shopping task in hand. Sturdy leather straps will negate any concerns about the weight of your gifts or digging into shoulders or hands, and the zip along the top of the bag will keep your gifts safe, secure and rain or snow-free.
The Delanna Large Felt Tote bag opens right up to even fit boxes in (obviously within reason; it depends what size box of course!) with its eminently clever double press-studded strap across the middle for extra security and added width. It also looks uber-stylish with its leather straps and comes in navy or grey.
The stylish essential
Just like the little black dress every woman needs a practical black bag. The Ginevra Black Italian Leather Messenger Bag from the Italian designer Carl Laich, couples ample room with practical features and will match seamlessly with every outfit in your wardrobe. As one would expect from a Milan designer, sophisticated styling and finishing comes as standard.
The perfect ‘me’ present
If all that hard work shopping for others seems worthy of a personal reward, then treat yourself this gorgeously glamorous Moira crocodile print tote in seasonally appropriate metallic gold. Besides being beautiful it’s practical too, featuring a unique middle detachable compartment, two leather handles and a shoulder strap - it makes the perfect ‘me’ Christmas present!
As this blog is all about the practical side of shopping, what could be more practical and helpful then sending this to your loved ones and getting them to choose their present for Christmas 2017? Alternatively, it works equally as well as handy guide for others to buy YOU your ideal Christmas gift!
