Style and lifestyle blogger Emily from Fashion Foie Gras shares her gift-giving wisdom with a list of the perfect bags for all the women in your life. From the party goddess to the daydreamer, look no further for inspiration of what to wrap up and put under the tree for all your favourite people this Christmas. Warning: you may also end up buying one for yourself too, but there’s nothing wrong with that!
The Cambridge Satchel Company bags have been an “under the Christmas tree” favourite of mine for years – well, that is, I love seeing my name on the boxes that contain these beautiful goodies. Call me greedy! This year, however, I’m paying it forward and giving the gift of beautiful leather goods to my friends and family. If there’s one place you can’t go wrong, it ‘s with the gifting of a beautiful leather bag or accessory that will age gracefully and remind the recipient of your generous nature all year round. So, without further ado, here’s my gift guide for all my fabulous lady friends in London this year… (here’s hoping they all don’t tune in to see what they’re receiving under the big tree this year).
Metallics are my favorite new addition to the Cambridge Satchel Company collection. These bags are at the height of fashion and truly give the wearer a bit of a stylish edge when it comes to an overall look. Not only is this the perfect day bag, it can instantly be transformed into an evening clutch simply by removing the shoulder strap. Keeping it classy!
I can’t help but think that the cloud bag is made for a lady who’s head is constantly in the clouds – in a good way. This is a bag for the girl who is hopelessly optimistic and wonderfully high on life. It’s the perfect combination of girlie and edgy and will definitely stand out on the arm of any individual choosing to carry!
Whether she’s a student or a woman on the move, the classic satchel will never go out of style as the bag every busy lady needs in her life. It fits nearly everything one could desire for a day out and about and comes in a dusky colour palette to boot! Is it wrong to want another one of these myself?
One of my favourite perks of buying from Cambridge Satchel Company is the embossing service that’s offered with your purchase. Whether picking up in store, or ordering online, this is wonderful way to give any gift a personalised touch. It’s easy and will, of course, make you look like you actually planned your gifting strategy months in advance. Now for the anyone and everyone bit… Cambridge Satchel Company have a wonderful collection of small later goods. You’ll find everything from wallets to pencil cases, and almost everything can be embossed. The colour palettes range from bright pinks to dusty blues, and the feel of this level is unparalleled. Think buttery soft heaven!
Come on – you can’t give a gift guide without sharing what you yourself would love to receive. This year i’m all about a tote, as most fashionistas on the move are. But a tote with the all important FFG initials is all the better – in a neutral colour palette so I can wear it with everything! Yes, Christmas came a little bit early this year.
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Oh, and the best of luck on your gift giving journeys! Don’t forget that Cambridge Satchel Company have also put together a wonderful Christmas gift guide with a little something for absolutely everything this season!
