5 handbag essentials for surviving holiday shopping


A list of five essential items that I keep in my purse at all times to combat the chaos of holiday shopping. As a bonus, they all make stellar gifts as well!

  1. Stay hydrated in style with S’well bottles – they keep drinks hot or cold all day long and their tight seal allows you to throw them in your purse without worrying about spillage.
  2. Suppress hunger with individual portioned healthy snacks from Graze – shipped directly to your door as often as you like plus get your first AND fifth box FREE with code 4XYWTKWMP at checkout!
  3. Brighten someone’s day with Starbucks – I always keep a stack of $5-$10 Starbucks gift cards in my purse during the holidays to thank those that go the extra mile.
  4. Save money with the Moleskine pocket portfolio – this adorable accordion file will organize all of your coupons in style.
  5. Go green with reusable shopping bags from Baggu – these thick nylon bags are great for sneaking presents back into the house unnoticed.
