So I’m not sure which gift to give my girls. I got these really cute gold wallets at the Kate Spade outlet, but then I started thinking that grown-up women probably have their own wallets? I know I do, but these are so cute? Then I saw this little evening bag and fell in love, but will they think it’s just a gift to go with their dresses or will they think it’s cool and handy to have an evening bag? Please help! Which one would you prefer? Thanks so much!

The second clutch is so cute! But if you like the wallet better, I’ll say that I’m never disappointed to find a fun new wallet to try out.

I like the wallet, personally. It’s adorable, and I go through wallets quickly.

I have a Dior wallet and I don’t see myself ever using another one unless it rips. It still looks brand new as the day I bought it 7 years ago, no joke.
I don’t, however, have an evening bag.
Personally, I think you should find out if your girls have wallets/evening bags and get each one what they need instead of getting them all the same thing.
But, if you are to get them all the same thing, then I’d say go with the evening bag. Even if they already have one, you can never have too many bags! I don’t know many girls who switch off wallets, though!

I voted for the evening bag because it’s super cute and more likely to get used again.

I voted for the wallet. It seems like something everyone can use.

I vote for the wallet, I think it’s much more practical and I would appreciate it more because it’s useful. While the evening bag is cute too, I don’t think I would ever have occasion to use it after the wedding.

TBH, I’d receive either and say thanks and throw it in the back of my closet for all eternity. Not everyone “needs” a tiny evening bag or – as you noted – a wallet. I just don’t see either as practical, more like how a lot of people say “you can wear this dress over andcover again” to every Bridesmaid or Best Man dress – even the butt ugly ones! Lol

You know your bridesmaids best! I’m not a real girly person so, personally, I’d prefer neither, but if I had to choose, I’d go with the evening bag. I’ve already got a wallet and, as far as I’m concerned, wallets are supposed to be sensible, practical items – a shiny gold one just wouldn’t work.
The evening bag can at least be used at formal events, but I’d try and make sure it’s a colour that will go with anything, so they can use it again, as well as being of a size that will make it practical.

I voted for the clutch. I probably wouldn’t use the wallet.

I voted for the evening bag because I am very particular about my wallets. I need a certain amount of room for my cards and prefer longer wallets–I can never fit anything into those pretty little square ones! I use evening bags when I go out so I’m not lugging my big purse around, so I would love that.

I voted for the wallet. Love the color.

I voted for the clutch because it’s a nice, neutral color and I could always use a clutch for going out, parties and weddings. I would never use a wallet that small as I have a lot of cards and I like to fit my checkbook in my wallet too. In addition, most people I know do not change up their wallets daily/regularly but they will change up their bags.

I don’t think you can ever go wrong with Kate Spade (or any other desiger, for that matter). I’m 29 and all my Bridesmaid or Best Man are 28-32. Personally, I’m getting them a Kate Spade tote or crossbody bag (haven’t decided yet). I have multiple wallets, a kate spade, dior, gucci, & louis vuitton and I change mine often. Everyone is different but I love all my wallets & bags so I rotate.

Thanks all for the feedback! It is so helpful! I think I want to get them all the same just because my friends and cousins can get a little competitive with each other, so I don’t want them thinking someone else got something better lol! @skyblue…my everyday wallet is silver with glitter haha, so this is why I need help! I think I’m leaning toward the evening bag cause the little girls have proms/ college balls etc to attend and one of my friends regularly has formal events for work and the others all have weddings coming up. But…the wallet is so cute in that little box! Plus it seems to be leading! EEEEkkk! I think I may be over thinking this lol! Thanks for all of your help!!
