Now that it’s mid-November, I think it’s safe to say the holiday season is officially upon us. Americans always tend to get an early start on the holidays, but even in Rome, I’ve starting seeing decorations appear in many storefronts (yay!) There are so many holiday traditions I look forward to every year: decorating our home, baking sweet treats, and one of my favorites, gift-giving. It’s been hard to keep a secret, but today I’m excited to share part of a special holiday collaboration with Brahmin Handbags. When I was given a sneak peek of the Brahmin Holiday collection, this unique Hudson satchel was one of the first bags to catch my eye. Metallic leather and luxe details beautifully combine in a sleek vintage-inspired bowler design, while the elegant patchwork print is a chic nod to the popular 70’s trend.The Hudson satchel can be carried by hand or worn over the shoulder by using the detachable strap (crucial for hands-free holiday shopping!)Did you know you can also monogram your Brahmin bags now? It’s one of my favorite new features! Basically any bag which has a Brahmin medallion can be monogrammed with up to three characters of your choice. I love monogramming items because it makes any gift so much more personal. You can explore all of Brahmin’s beautiful options which can be monogrammed here and these are a few of my favorite picks (the leather journal would make a perfect gift for anyone on your list):
To help you get a head start on holiday shopping, I added some gift ideas below for family and friends (yes, even the men in your life!) My husband actually owns this roomy duffle and he loves it. Don’t forget to treat yourself while you’re at it!
- Poncho (Ann Taylor–old; near identical)
- Faux Fur Scarf (old; very similar)
- Denim (AG Jeans)
- Boots (Stuart Weitzman; another budget-friendly option)
