    Default Looking for the PERFECT gift

    Ok... In a few months my wife and I will celebrate 10 years together (we're 28). I'm very excited about this and want to spoil her with a designer handbag. We're by no means rich, and so I would prefer that the bag be a 'staple' - something that will not go out of style a year from now.

    Unfortunately, typical guy that I am, I have no idea what to look for - please help!

    Budget: 1000-1750 USD
    Likes: Thicker/substantial straps

    Any advice would be GREAT! Thanks

    Go for a neutral color. Browns or blacks are always good. Bright colors come and go, but the tradtional colors will always be around.

    Thanks! Gotcha on the neutral colour - is there any particular designers I should focus on? (yes, i'm that new!)

    Would she like a Balenciaga?

    I would recommend a Balenciaga (City) for sure OR you can get her a monogrammed (with her initials) LV Damier Ebene Speedy.

    Thanks for all the help thus far... she's definitely more of an LV girl (style-wise) than Balenciaga...

    Is there anything more along these lines? How about brands like Gucci - Prada - Chanel....? Too Old?

    Not necessarily too old, but a lot of the bags may be out of your price range if you're looking for a leather bag. What sort of styles does she like? Satchel? Hobo? Maybe we can make some suggestions.

    For a versatile bag (and for someone in their late 20's) I vote for the LV Trevi PM. She can use it as a top handle or a shoulder bag, the Damier canvas is a bit more hip than the traditional monogram and the pleating adds some character :) It's a (tiny) bit over your price range, but I think she'd die!

    I think for $1750 you should be able to get a nice LV bag. I dont think you can really go wrong. 90% (my own personal scientific study Btw) of all chics love LV.

    another thought would be what the handbag would be used for - work? social purposes? that would also help narrow down the "look" of the bag vastly.
