Great Gifts for Mom
Mother’s Day is just around the corner, why not get mom something really special this year? What about a nice handbag? Whether she’s a bag fanatic just like you, or you simply want to share one of your many interests with her, no gift is more personal that a great bag that you know she’ll love! What a wonderful way to let mom know how much you care!
Now that you’ve decided to get mom a new bag for Mother’s Day, you’re going to need to pick one that suits her tastes. Oh dear, that could be a bit tricky. Maybe you don’t like the same things. Or worse yet, you do like the same things and you might end up wanting to keep the bag you pick out for her! LOL! Well don’t worry girls, I have picked out some mom-worthy gift ideas and I’ve included a little something for everyone (different mom’s have different tastes). And, since I know you girls would rather be putting your money towards handbags for yourselves, all of the bags I have here are less than $400!
For the casual mom:
1. Coach Signature Carly with Patent Trim – $348
New for Spring, Coach has put a patent-spin on their very popular Carly bag. It looks great with jeans and its big enough to hold everyday essentials.
2. Eric Javits Shop Hop Satchel – $380
This light and airy bag would be great for summer. This satchel gives the look of straw, but its very durable at the same time.
For the funky mom:
3. Elaine Turner Medium Gabby Shopper in Tahitian Dream – $345
Have a funky mom? Well check out this giraffe print! This little shopper puts a fresh spin on the animal print trend.
4. Kate Spade Fisher Island Small Devon Bag – $295
Zebra print… need I say more? Wait, why is it called “Fisher Island”?
For the mom that carries everything with her:
5. Longchamp Roseau Embossed Tote – $370
Great everyday tote that’s appropriate for both work and play. This baby will hold a lot too, thanks to its expandable gusset sides.
6. Juicy Couture Premier Carry-On Tote – $225
Huge size and durable PVC fabric, plus it comes with its own little zippered pouch to hold the little stuff.
For the workaholic mom:
7. Steven by Steve Madden High Society Large Tote – $185
This croco-embossed leather tote features a divided interior. It would be great for organizing folders and files.
8. Monsac Iris Gloss Tote – $398
Large enough to fit a laptop computer, this patent tote is sleek and sophisticated.
All of these bags can be found over at Nordstroms. And don’t forget that they offer free shipping everyday on all orders over $200. So hurry now, Mother’s Day is just a short week away!
