The month of Valentine’s Day, Fashion Week, and my anniversary is upon us. This month also holds all February birthday babies, whose birthstone is a gorgeous, deep purple amethyst. Purple is one of my favorite colors, as it works as a deep neutral in place of black or brown.

From the chicest Beats by Dr. Dre headphones that I have ever seen to a luxurious phone case to the best purple bags out there right now, I have nine birthday gift ideas for the February birthday girls in your life.

Bottega Veneta Relaxed Lambskin Satchel | $3,400 via Neiman Marcus

There is something very different about the shape of this bag, but the extremely supple leather is sure to grab your attention from the get-go. Because of its shape, this bag is meant to carry everything and anything one might need.

Fendi Zucca-Flap Baguette | $1,520 via Neiman Marcus

As we said earlier, Fendi is trying to bring their Baguette bags back. I love the ornate versions, but a simple leather Baguette may be just what a February birthday baby needs.

Proenza Schouler PS1 Medium Satchel | $1,595 via Net-A-Porter

I apologize to all who are sick of the PS1, but this is not only a fan favorite but one of my favorite bags ever. The cool schoolboy bag is super feminine but still has every bit of pizazz needed to become your go-to bag.

Oscar de la Renta Beats by Dr. Dre | $695 via

From the moment I heard Oscar was partnering to make the most luxurious Beats by Dr. Dre ever, I decided I most certainly needed a pair. Covered in luxe plum silver fox, this is the perfect gift for the girl who loves listening to music and has everything.

Dolce & Gabbana Sequined Shoulder Bag | $1,375 via Net-A-Porter

I know there are plenty of February birthday girls who love to sparkle and shine, and Dolce & Gabbana has just the bag. This bag also makes a fun Valentine’s day present, hint hint.

Gucci Jackie Medium Hobo | $1,890 via Neiman Marcus

I’ve got a Gucci obsession that I don’t share as much as I should. A classic hobo with a longer shoulder strap and the perfectly sized body makes me crush hard on this iconic bag.

Marc by Marc Jacobs Take Me Tote | $358 via ShopBop

Marc by Marc should be considered for options all the time, including this gift guide. While this tote is simple, it is entirely practical and even looks cute.

Rebecca Minkoff Morning After Bag | $525 via Rebecca Minkoff

A cult favorite, the Morning After Bag is the bag that started it all for Rebecca Minkoff. In a luscious plum hue, this bag is meant to go from day to night to morning.

Hermes HigHtecH | $420 via Hermes

Hermes knows the ladies want to bring luxurious leather into every aspect of their life, including phone covers. For a very simplistic look and feel but high quality leather, the HigHtechH Blackberry cases from Hermes are timeless.

    All the people in my life with February birthdays are men . . . but that doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy some purple eye candy! Those headphones in particular are really fun.

    I was not born in February but I love purple. I bought the BV Violet Lambskin bag and matching zip wallet last week from my local BV boutique. The clear PVC intrecciato with the black overstitching add some nice edginess to BV. I am in BV heaven. The bag is much more vibrant IRL; and it falls into a soft puddle of leather. Thanks Tomas for enabling my Spring 2012.
