I love my 4 BM’s, and I’m extremely close to all of them. Naturally, I want to get them that will let them know they are appreciated, but also things they will use! I decided to buy them all the same Kate Spade handbag in different colors. I was very excited about it, but when I got them home I started second guessing my choice. (outlet prices by the way!)
I know most girls love Kate Spade, but how would you feel about receiving one as a gift? Everyone has individual taste in bags, so is that a weird present to pick out? I’m so scared that they’ll like the idea, but not necessarily the actual bag.
I also bought them Michael Kors studs to wear on the wedding day, and I might get them monogrammed robes as well. But the bag is the real gift. . . I just want them to love it! What do you guys think? Should I go with something else? I was thinking a bracelet or something . . .

I’m particular with bags too, so I might get something neutral.

I’m going to take a guess that at least one will love it and at least one will hate it because it’s not her taste,it’s yours. Everyone has different fashion tastes, my friends all carry around large purses, I personally can’t stand them.

I love it – I am doing the same thing, actually. And I would love a designer bag as a gift. I think it is great. I would not like to recieve a bracelet though…

Can you show us the bag? People are so picky about their bags and stuff, it’s hard to say whether they will all like it or not.

I would think it was SUCH a nice gift, even if I didn’t love the style.

This is a picture of the bag . . . although not the colors I got. I got more neutral colors . . . black, nude, porcelain, etc.

Unless the bag was ugly, I would probably keep it and have at least one or two outfits that went with it. I’m not super fussy about bags, and it’s kind of fun to have a new piece to work with (esp something out of my shopping comfort zone).
Edit- I have a couple bags that I got as gifts and the person was like, I picked this bag for x x and x reason (like, I thought this color went with clothes you wear a lot/I noticed you could use a casual bag that won’t slip off your shoulder when you’re riding your bike). Even though I didn’t LOVE one of those bags immediately, I appreciated the thought that went into it and it turned out that it WAS really awesome for when I was riding my bike. So that person knew how to pick a bag for me better than I did haha.
Edit again- I really like the bag. Simple, classic, clean lines. They might not all LOVE it but I’m sure most people can find it useful unless they’re the types that carry their whole hosue around in the purse.

@Jade1424: I think those are neutral enough that they will use them. I’m pretty picky but I would use that!

I would like it In a nude or black and think it was an awesome gift!

@Jade1424: Yeah I think those are basic enough that everyone could use them. Even if they are more clutch girls, I usually have a bigger bag that I keep in my trunk or something to grab when I need to carry more with me.

Normally, I would HATE someone picking out a purse for me, BUT these are so adorable and current, I would love it! Especially in a neutral color, so good choice!
