Unusual handbags - mother's day gift ideas

Make your mum feel special with a unique handmade bag from Munique. Uniqueness is different for everyone and there are lots of designer handbags out there and fashionistas or label lovers who simply must have them to be trendy.

Now there's a woman who exudes confidence in her.

Shape is probably one of the first feature in an unusual handbag that grabs me. The bag must draw the eye and when my friends, family and perfect strangers ask me "Where did you get that", then I know that I am doing something right. What better endorsement do you need than the fact that you are turning heads. I guess that is the dramatic personality in me.

Valentines Day Gift

valentines day gift, pretty woman, Julia Roberts and Richard Gere Everytime I think of Valentines's Day, I think of that song "Lady in Red" and am reminded of that movie with Julia Roberts - Pretty Woman - when she scrubs up nicely in a red ballroom gown and is whisked away in an aeroplane by handsome Richard Gere to attend the opera.

Oh what a romantic I am!!!! Not all of us can be whisked away on a fanciful date like that but when it comes to valentines day it is the thought that counts or it should be -though some would say wrap the thought if it wasn't about the gift. In the true spirit of valentines day with red accessories being so popular around this time, click here for valentines day gift ideas in red.

Handmade bags by Jhasper

Every woman should have at least one handmade bag in her wardrobe. When it comes to bags made by hand, I look for neatness and attention to detail and most importantly uniqueness. Jhasper’s bags tick all those boxes for me and offer that individual look that I’m always going on about.

Jhasper’s unique handcrafted bags are made from upholstery and home furnishing fabric of the highest quality. Rich textiles like suede, woven fabrics, classic paisley print and luscious colours like turquoise and brown, all come together to create a desirable designer bag.

With attention to detail, designer Chris not only uses quality fabric but you will find that the finish is exquisite with the use of quality handles and lining. Often times I buy coats, jackets and even jeans because of the quality lining inside which gives a luxurious feeling. Jhasper’s bags look as good on the inside as they do on the outside and they are practical too as they are designed with an array of pockets, closures and fitting to suit today’s woman.
