    Hello, I need some opinions from women. I love shopping at B Hemmings & Co., and I recently saw a gorgeous leather handbag that I think would be perfect for the woman I love.

    We’ve been dating for 10 months now, and her birthday is coming soon. I thought about buying her this handbag, but now I’m wondering if it’s really a good idea. She already has a handbag, she mentioned that she would like to get a new one eventually, but I’m wondering if she would be happy to receive one purchased by me, or if she would prefer choosing one herself.

    It might sound like a silly question, but I’m wondering if it’s a good idea to buy a handbag to a woman?

    Personally, I’m really picky when it comes to handbags. So if my boyfriend gave me one, even with the best of intentions, I would probably find it either too small, or too large, or I’d think it doesn’t have enough pockets…

    Anyway, I’d prefer choosing it myself. If you think it might be the same thing for your girlfriend, maybe you could take her to the store on her birthday, and show her the bag you saw that made you think of her, and ask her if she likes it. If not, maybe you can just buy her a different model that will please her.


    If she doesn’t like that particular model, don’t feel bad! I’m sure she’ll be happy that you thought about buying her a leather handbag… but I’m probably not the only woman who’s picky about handbags, so if you’re gonna give her a handbag, make sure it’s one that she will love and use.


    If B Hemmings sells giftcards, that could be an option. Or you could buy the handbag, but first check if it’s easy to return it or to exchange it if ever she doesn’t like it.


    Awww, that’s so sweet! I wish my boyfriend would buy me a leather handbag! I think it’s a great idea!!


    If after 10 months you don’t know your girlfriend enough to be sure it would be ok for you to buy her a handbag, maybe you shouldn’t buy her one. I mean, it’s probably a big investment, so if you’re not sure she’d like it, maybe you should give her something else for her birthday.


    I think it’s a good idea! But I collect handbags, so I’m always happy to add one to my collection!

    If you saw this handbag and it made you feel like it would be perfect for her, I think you should trust your feeling and buy it for her. I’m sure she’ll be happy!


    Personally I wouldn’t be happy to receive a handbag as a gift. I’d like to be able to choose it myself, to make sure there will be enough space inside to put my wallet, my phone, my lipstick, my book, and everything else I carry around.


    Maybe a gift card would be better, because then she can go and choose the handbag she really likes. This way, it’s more simple and everyone is happy.
