New Year New Bag Charms: 25 Ways to Personalize Your Bag in 2016

The market for handbag accessories has been exploding every since Fendi debuted its immediately sold-out Bag Bugs, and this holiday season finds us with more options than every to make our everyday bags look a little newer, a little more personal and a lot more fun. The timing is likely not coincidental; bag charms make great gifts because of their relatively low price points compared to other designer leather goods, and they’re a fun little bauble to give or receive.

Below, we’ve assembled over two dozen options for giving your handbag a bit of new life. Our picks start at less than $40, and this season’s options include an abundance of cute animals, including several bears and monkeys.

I really love the smiley bag charm! But my favourite has to be the one I got from Evergotten.com the stuffed elephant is so adorable and I was so pleased with the high quality leather. Merry Xmas everyone =D

Love the Fossil “monster”, looks friendly&fun. Esprit also does really nice ones that are cruelty free.

These are cute but seem to me to be for a younger crowd (with lots of spare cash).

I like numbers 3, 7, 14, 19, and 20, but I just can’t fathom spending hundreds of dollars on something to decorate my handbag.
I find the Coach and Shrimps are kind of creepy.

I love all of these but I won’t be spending that kind of money on something I might lose. I’ll just spend $2 on a pickle shaped ornament from Michaels and use that 🙂

I’m in the minority who dislike the dingle dangle fuss of bag charms. But these are cute for key chains.

OH you had me at the monkey cartoon mini pouch, so cute! But my fave is the star cartoon! Would have never thought that was from moschino.

That star is based on Super Mario, but knowing you, you probably have no idea what that means, huh? Sad.

I love the Burberry Thomas Bear, but I’ve seen pictures of it on TPF and it is huge! If it were much smaller I might consider it. I dunno if I feel comfortable having a large bear hanging on my purse.
