What does your loved one want for Christmas? If they’ve been hinting at a new handbag, rucksack, purse or wallet then you’ve come to the right place! We know that choosing a bag to suit somebody else’s tastes can sometimes be a little bit tricky, so to give you a helping hand we’ve decided to throw together some suggestions. Best of all, all of these options can be picked up from the comfort of your own home using our online shopping option – although if you would like a wider selection and help from one of our in-store assistants, you can visit us in Lancaster City Centre.
So, what do you buy for…
Some lads and lasses love to keep up with the latest trends, stand out at all the parties, and generally feel stylish every time they leave the house. For these fashionistas, you might be tempted to find something with plenty of embellishment and flair… in actuality though, it’s the simple, classic bag that will complement their wardrobe over time – even as the fashions change.
With this in mind, we’ve picked out the Black Nova Classic flap over women’s handbag, which is seriously never going to go out of style. The black front section can easily be decorated with pins and brooches, too – so that it can change with seasons.
For men, it has to be the Ashwood brown Shoreditch Travel Bag – gorgeous leather in mottled brown, and a compact size that ensures convenience as well as practicality.
The Outdoor Ranger
People who love the great outdoors need something a little more hardwearing, and will probably be looking for a spacious rucksack that will hold a fair amount of kit for their activities and adventures. The key here is to find a gift that is not just practical in terms of its capacity and storage potential, but also in terms of how easy it is to carry – for instance during a long hike.
We love the Rock Carbon Black Lightweight Holdall for both men and women: slick, sleek and made to be used. There are also a range of carrying options including a shoulder strap as well as the more standard holdall handles. This is one of the most practical bags we’ve seen, so the outdoor ranger in your life is sure to love it.
The Jetsetter – somebody who spends an unenviable amount of time in airports (but an incredibly enviable amount of time in pool resorts) – also needs a spacious holdall, however in this case style is as important as functionality. So you’re looking for a fashionable product that can still pull its weight on trips across the globe…
Well, it has to be the Rowallan Tan New Mexico Large Weekender. The tan buffalo leather gives this bag it’s distinctive, luxurious look, while khaki leather and stylish zips prove that the smaller details have also been considered. Just as importantly, it has plenty of pockets and storage space to help your loved one keep their belongings safe.
Shopaholics may love spending their money more than they love keeping it, but that doesn’t mean that they don’t want a quality purse or wallet to keep it safe. These items get used day in, day out – so it’s important to find something that can stay strong against that kind of wear and tear.
This is partly down to the material you choose, and partly down to the compartments; plenty of sections mean your purse or wallet is less likely to burst due to over-filling. With that in mind, we love the soft leather Graffiti purse, which is kitted out with lots of pockets as well as a coin pouch. When it comes to wallets, this pick from Rowallan is not only full of nooks and pouches, but also made of extremely hardwearing veg tanned buffalo leather.
We think that a bag makes a beautiful Christmas present, so hopefully this guide has given you a clearer idea of how to make the right purchase for a friend or relative! If you have any more questions or queries don’t forget that you can give us a call on 01524 840 777 or pop into the store.
