HANDBAGS

A handsome Italian leather handbag makes a wonderful holiday gift, although choosing the right one can be an intensely personal experience. If you and your daughter, sister or best friend agree on absolutely everything except the best handbag, here are some gift-giving strategies to try:

Choose a Classic.  Italy’s long record of fashion leadership is based, first and foremost, on respect for the classic principles of design. A bag like Pratesi’s Pinturichio Small Leather Ladies Handbag, for example, blends the rules of balance, proportion, strength and beauty to produce a design of timeless quality. Available in several colors, Pinturichio is a bag in style, no matter what the current fashion trends.

Make a Statement Like a strong woman, Alberto Bellucci’s Ivanka Handbag is emphatically outspoken, without losing an ounce of charm. Bold design, beautiful glossy surfaces and a rainbow of fashion-fit colors make this bag both fun and functional. Like its recipient, this bag is outstanding and unique.

Take a Chance. A gift, after all, is exactly that—not a necessity. Use gift-giving as a way to expand your recipient’s horizons, with a cross-body bag, a weekend backpack or a fun clutch. A gift like Claire Chase’s small Uptown Backpack makes a great weekend-excursion handbag, letting someone try out a new style without giving up old favorites.

Pratesi Leather - Cimabue Women's Double Gusset Italian Briefcase

BRIEFCASE OR PORTFOLIO

Some purists insist that a briefcase has handles, while a portfolio does not. When shopping for business accessories for a successful career woman, the demands of her profession are the best guide to what she needs to be carrying. Look at weight, security mechanisms (like locks and zippers) and fashion-fit to the usual performance criteria. Pratesi’s Cimabue Double-Gusset Women’s Briefcase bears all these concerns in mind. Its polished calfskin surface can be had in bright colors like cherry and golden mustard, as well as darker shades. For a body-hugging compact case, Chirugia Firenze’s Portfolio Leather Briefcase offers retractable handles, a secure zipper closure, lots of organizational pockets and a detachable shoulder strap.
