The Perfect Gift

The holiday season is here, Christmas lights are up and shoppers are out in the malls and online looking for the best deals. If you are like me, you still have a lot of shopping left to be done and probably, you will still be shopping until Christmas Eve.  Although it takes me some time to find the “perfect gift” for a family member or friend, in spite of that, I enjoy the experience even much more than shopping for myself.  The thought of how happy my loved one will be when she receives that “perfect gift” melts my heart.  I also enjoy shopping for a loved one because it gives me the opportunity to think of her in ways I usually don’t. Thoughts like what does the person need and what does the person like comes to mind. The “perfect gift” should address these two thoughts to some degree.

What does the person need - A need is a necessity fulfilling a missing value in one’s life. Buying gifts based on needs is typically the first instinct when shopping for a loved one. However, one needs to be careful because the recipient might prefer meeting her own needs instead of someone else assuming that responsibility. So even though you recognize a need in a loved one’s life, you might want to make sure that she’s comfortable with you satisfying her need before buying that gift. Try dropping hints and notice the person’s response; this will help you gauge her openness to the gift.  Also keep in mind that while gifts addressing obvious needs might not be welcomed, gifts fulfilling obscure but accurately anticipated needs might be well-received with open arms and heart. So think critically about your loved one and see if you can anticipate a non obvious need. For example, have you noticed your sister’s black handbag is wearing out and she needs another one? A black handbag might be the “perfect gift” for the holidays. 

What does the person like - By what a person likes, I am referring to an item that is not a necessity but your loved one has some or maybe, a strong preference for the item. For example, my baby sister needs a pair of pumps for work but she loves sketchers so instead of buying her pumps, I am getting her the sketchers.  I am shying away from buying her what she needs because I am sure she’ll rather get the pumps for herself so I am getting a gift she would always love to receive.  

With all this said and done, as you shop for the holidays, check out Coquese. We carry different collections of handbags, necklaces, bracelets, earrings and bikes that could potentially be the “perfect gift” for a loved one. So browse until you drop!

 Happy holidays from all of us at Coquese!

Winter Bags

Winter is fast approaching, to brace for this season one’s clothing and accessories change from the bright-colored, shorter and skimpier ones in the summer to heavy sweaters and coats, longer thicker pants and boots in the winter. Although the transition starts out in fall with cold longer nights and shorter days, we don’t fully experience these changes until winter when the nights are so freezing sometimes one forgets what it’s like to feel the sun on one’s skin. With all these weather changes, one question that comes to mind often is which handbags are good for the winter? While many factors influence ones decision in selecting the appropriate bag(s) for the winter, these are the most important ones -- the weather, color, size and your personality.

A key factor in choosing a winter bag is what your winter is like. The winter experienced by someone living in southern California is very different from what one will experience in Chicago. So while the west coast fashionista can still carry bags from the summer and fall collections in the winter, the average woman in Chicago is restricted to winter collections. A moisture repellant and water-resistant hand bag (see our previous blog on water-resistant bags) seems more appropriate for that person living in Chicago who is concerned with keeping her bag looking good after many raining and snowy days.

Most winter clothing tends to be dark or dull colors like black, brown or grey so we naturally choose matching accessories with similar colors. I think it’s worth venturing out a bit this winter by trying multi-colored bags with dark and light colors like these multi-colored totes. If you are edgier, you can try bolder colors like red, yellow or orange. It would definitely brighten up your short winter days.

Size matters a lot when it comes to winter bags --if you will be carrying many items like winter caps, neck scarves and umbrella back and forth because of the weather, then you need bigger totes instead of small hobos or clutch bags. This is when dual function bags help the most; for example, the bag can be used as a clutch during the summer and a tote in the winter. For such dual purpose bags check out our Marielle collection (in an Espresso/Natural or sunflower/ocean).

Finally, knowing fully well that our personalities vary widely, my only tip here is that you express yourself freely with the style of bag that you like as long as the other important factors are fully covered! So browse through the Bo’s Art, Marysol and Robert le heros collections @ coquese and see if you find any bag that satisfies your winter needs!

Bag spills don’t have to fatal

Have you ever spilled coffee on your handbag? Ever had a cosmetic accident leaving your purse smeared with lip gloss or lip stick? Ever had a hand sanitizer spill all over your bag leaving it dripping with liquid? Yes, this happened to one of my friends; she’s been carrying hand sanitizers everywhere to avoid contracting the H1N1 virus -- I really don’t blame her. If you are like me or my friend, you've experienced these type of incidences too often than you would like. One moment of indiscretion, and your handbag might be ruined. Well, I found out that spills don’t have to be fatal; with a waterproof handbag one doesn’t have to worry about spills because you can just wipe them off. So if you are in the market shopping for waterproof bags, check out the diverse collections of water-resistant bags, pouches, travel cases and totes at Coquese. Here are pictures of two of my favorite water resistant bags -- the Audrey Blossom tote and the Blossom clutch. These bags also come in Audrey Indigo, Audrey Lily and Audrey Clair.

We at Coquese would love to hear about your interesting “bag spills” and solutions that have worked for you so leave us a note and let us you stopped by. We look forward to hearing from you!
