Bag Snob Holiday Gift Ideas

For the girl, or girls, on your list with impeccable taste, here are Bag Snob’s sure to please bags for the generous Santa in you.


Gryson Skye Bag $695.

Joy Gryson is the hot designer right now – one look at the Skye bag and you’ll know why. We love the slouchy body without it being a sloppy hobo, it is edgy and fun yet completely put together. The sophisticated braided handle polishes what is otherwise a casual bag. This bag make you look like you’re at the top of the game without having to pay for it, at $695 it is perfect for the hipster on your list.






Tod’s Bensonville in Dark Jean $1390. For the extremely lucky girl with great taste, go all out with sheer perfection. This is our favorite bag of the year. Tod’s hit perfection with the Bensonville, the shape of the bag is all classic but the pocket detail and distressed leather adds the touch it needs to be young and hip. And the dark jean is hands down the best color. The color works the same way as demin, goes with just about everything but unlike denim, this bag will be the spotlight of any outfit. This is one of the few bags both the Bag Snobs own multiple colors and sizes of (the calf hair with python trim is oh-so lush!).


VBH clutch $695. The clutch is fantastic as a gift because it is something everyone needs but not necessarily invests in. For the Bag Snob, clutches are essential, and not just for the evening. That is why this VBH clutch is so great, it goes from day to night effortlessly, especially in dark gray metallic. This is something that will get a lot of mileage and that’s what you look for in a gift, right? She’ll be thinking about you for a long long time!


YSL reversible tote $995. There is a practical girl inside all of us but that doesn’t mean we have to cheat on style. This super swanky leather tote is reversible, the “Y” stitched detailing is on both sides, making this 2 bags for the price of one! This is perfect for the style savvy professional on your list. $995.


Allegra Silver Leather pouch $95. Short on budget but not on taste? Get the Allegra Silver Leather pouch for only $95. You can pretty much give this to all the ladies on your list, it’s great for cosmetics, traveling (at 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, it’ll fit a passport and all your traveling docs) or baby essentials (diaper cream, Purell, extra socks etc.). It comes in 6 colors so you can get multiple colors for the organizer on your list.

  1. Hi Bagsnobs, thank you for the great suggestions!

    I am a Tod’s lover too and seriously considering the Bensonville in Dark Jean (you girls are spot on with the comments – it’s absolutely divine in real life). My only concern – is the bag formal enough to be used for work? I am a banker and am more often than not in suits (or formal shirt/blouse and pencil skirt/pants combo)

    Hi Julia,

    The bensonville is definitely formal enough for work, the dark jean color is really a midnight blue which is nice with black, white, or gray suits. Go for it!

  2. Dear Bagsnob –

    I really need your help. I am looking for the YSL Nadja Flower Bag. I am having a very hard time finding it. Once in a while there is one available on ebay…but you never know if they are real. I am absolutely in love with this bag and I NEED it. I should have bought it when I had the chance and I have regretted it since. That was also the last time I held back from purchasing a bag. I have learned my lesson. I am hoping to find a large one in black or beige leather, I would take suede too. Please help if you can.

    Thanks so much.
