Personalized Weekender Bags for Him & Her (great gifts!)

We all have those people in our lives who are incredibly hard to shop for. Every holiday season I feel like I’m stumped with what to get the men in my life. My husband, my dad & stepdad, and my brother are always the people I struggle to shop for each year. Over the years I have learned that gifting items such as wallets, weekender bags, and travel accessories are always great ideas for them! They’re functional and always useful!

Barrington Gifts recently introduced their men’s weekender bag and my husband absolutely loves his. He has used it on numerous trips (both for work and relaxation) and has really enjoyed it. It features top handles, an adjustable shoulder strap, along with an interior and exterior pocket. The canvas exterior makes it extremely durable and easy to clean!

If you’re still looking for a great gift for the girl in your life, I highly recommend the St. Anne Tote  or the Belmont Cabin weekender bag. I have had both of mine for years and can speak to the quality after years of use! The St. Anne tote works great as an everyday bag or as a personal item when traveling. They have open bags and a zippered version!

P.S. Their cutoff date for ordering is December 16th (next Monday!) at 7 p.m. CST so be sure to order before then so that it’s guaranteed to arrive before Christmas! 🙂

  • AD: It's no secret that I love anything to do with true crime, so when I heard about A Good Girl's Guide to Murder, I knew I just *had* to read it! 📖🕵🏼‍♀️This book reminded me a lot of the Serial podcast & it's safe to say I was instantly hooked! I read this book in 24 hours because I simply couldn't put it down and I had to know how Pip's senior project surrounding the disappearance of Andie Bell played out! If you need another book to add to your list, be sure it's this one! 📚 Sharing more in stories! @GetUnderlined  @hojay92 #GetUnderlined #GetUnderlinedPartner #AGoodGirlsGuidetoMurder
