If your dad is anything like mine, he’s a little hard to shop for. Not only does he generally tend to buy whatever he wants for himself before anyone gets the opportunity to give it to him, but he’s retired, so I can’t fall back on reliable gifts like ties, cufflinks or interesting pieces for his desk or office. If you’re shopping for luxury gifts for your dad, you’re probably in a simular situation – what do you get for a man whose primary activities are going to the gym and exploring iTunes?

We are so thrilled to bring you the PurseBlog Holiday Gift Guides for 2012! Our team has been working hard for weeks to be able to plan every gift guide you could want to help you get through the shopping season. Whether you are shopping for a loved one, a frenemy, or the man in your life, we have the guides for you.
The gift guides are just going to keep on coming! Today we put together the best gifts for mom, who is always a tricky person to shop for. I always begin thinking about what I will get my mother for the holidays extra early, not because she is difficult, but because I really want to find the perfect gift for her.
Typically, Monday morning means the start of a new week, and while it still means that today, this week there’s much more added pressure: it’s Thanksgiving week. While I am pretty excited to be celebrating Thanksgiving and eating until my expandable pants won’t expand any more, I am also ready to officially kick off the holiday season with our annual gift guides.
This is probably the fastest moving year of my life or so it seems. November has arrived and that means the Holidays are upon us. Every month I feel like I say the same thing, but really, how did this happen? We kick off each month with a birthday gift guide and though November and December birthdays may get lost in the holiday mix, we haven’t forgotten about you November birthday babies.
Hey October babies, this is your month! And here I am trying to put together the best opal bags as birthday ideas, but it’s tough. Really tough. Opal is a stone that changes color in light and glimmers and shines non-stop, which makes finding any type of handbag to coincide quite difficult. When I started to think about it, I began wishing that more designers would make bags that had flecks of color that could shine randomly.
Dear fellow September babies,
I am so sorry. I forgot to put up your birthday gift guide the beginning of this month, and I feel even worse because September is my birthday month too. I celebrated my birthday on the 6th, and since New York Fashion Week started that day, I didn’t get to celebrate yet and I almost entirely forgot.
I have absolutely, positively no idea how it is August. I was staring at the calendar yesterday and realized that this is one of those years when time flies more than usual. The August birthstone is peridot, which appears in only one color, a light green. I’ve never been a huge fan of green handbags, but as I searched for the nine best on the market right now, I started to rethink my aversion to the shade.
4th of July is synonymous with summer. It signifies everything summer is about for me, like beach vacations, bikinis, parades, barbecues, baseball games and late nights out. It will be my second summer to celebrate Independence Day in NYC and there is something magical about being here. Between the fireworks and the overall pride and joy felt in the city for this country, I look forward to celebrating the 4th here with friends and family.
We’ve been having a great time each month coming up with birthstone-guided handbag gift ideas. I can’t believe July is already here, but somehow it is. July’s birthstone is the ruby, a stone synonymous with luxury. A ruby red bag comes in handy not only for the summer months, but also year-round. The color is vibrant and perfect to add a little zest to your wardrobe without seeming too trendy.
