Bags under $1000

During college, I logged a few years working at the local Best Buy, so you could say that I’m intimately familiar with the ins and outs of the holiday shopping season. We all know about the first two phases – Black Friday, followed by regular gift shopping – but the third is less talked-about. During my time in the retail trenches, we called it the Gift Card Apocalypse.

The Gift Card Apocalypse starts on December 26, and it’s the time when shoppers come in with their Christmas spoils, whether it be a gift card or cold, hard cash, and clean out the store shelves to buy the things they didn’t find under the tree. We have a feeling that a lot of you are in the same position – in possession of gift cards to your favorite retailers that are currently burning a hole in your pocket. Lucky for you, we’re here to help. These bags, starting at $278, are all solid choices for anyone looking for something that can be carried every day. Brights, neutrals, pastels, colorblocking – we’ve got a little something for everyone, and it’s all under four figures.
