Great Gifts for Handbag Lovers
Ever find yourself stumped for ideas when trying to buy a gift for someone? Your answer to this question is most likely going to be “yes”! Well, what if you are trying to shop for someone that loves handbags just as much as you do?
Recently, I was faced with just such a dilemma. My friend of twenty-something years had a birthday coming up. She was turning 26 and she is the ultimate handbag collector. Of course, I knew exactly what she wanted for her birthday… a new Fendi bag she had been eye-balling for the past few months. Now don’t get me wrong, I love my friend to death! However, there was absolutely no way I was spending $1500 + on a handbag for HER. Yep, you guessed it! I would have much rather spent that kind of money on a handbag for MYSELF!
So here I was, trying to come up with a creative and thoughtful gift for my handbag-loving friend. Finally, I stumbled across a post Jennifer had made over at the Fashion Row about the following book:
At last, my quest had come to an end! Not only is “This Little Piggy Went to Prada” by Amy Allen a wonderful and clever book, but it also turned out to be the perfect gift for my friend!

After finding this book, I was inspired to find other gifts that would be perfect for handbag lovers. Below are some of my top picks. I hope you will find them as enjoyable as I did!
