How ready are you for this giveaway to get started? I know I have been filling your head with handbag giveaway teasers for a few days now, but finally everything can get started. We’ve teamed up with Luxaholics to bring you the 12 Days of Handbag Giveaways. Starting today through Wednesday, December 24th (weekends excluded) we will be giving away at least one designer handbag a day.


So, how does everything work? Each day from 9AM EST through 8:59 AM EST the following day (24 hours) you will have the chance to enter that day’s giveaway. You will need to provide the secret code which will be found in that day’s Purse Blog post when entering over at Luxaholics. Only one entry per person/per day. Of course you can enter each day during the 12 Days of Handbag Giveaways. A winner will be randomly selected and notified within 24 hours following that day’s giveaway.

Enough with all the rules and regulations… let’s see the first handbag! Today we kick off with the gorgeous Gustto Polina handbag. Gustto has been making it’s way into my heart over the past few months. Gorgeous yet practical, these handbags also seem to have something extra to them. Take this handbag for instance; the soft red leather, chain strap or handle and of course the loose bow detail all work really well together. The bag has plenty of room to store everything you tend to carry around. And you know, there is something to be said for a red handbag. Whether you think vixen, sexy, chic, sophisticated or fun when you see red, this handbag is definitely one you’d love toting around. Now, this fabulous bag retails for $700, but you have a chance to win it.

    My wife’s birthday is not today, but it would be a nice Christmas present. She has given up a lot these past years by giving to other’s before herself during this recession. She deserves something special this Christmas. I hope that this can be it.

  • Rattana Leng

    This would be a great purse for my mother, who has worked as a single mother, raising 3 kids while showing our traditional culture that a woman can succeed in this world without a man by her side. She has given us, her kids, everything that we asked for by working 2 to 3 jobs since I was little through my teens. She has dedicated her life to her family and friends. She is a giving person, who deserves more this Christmas. Any purse throughout the 12 days of Christmas bags will be worth her individuality. I hope that and will grace my mother with the perfect gift this holiday season. Thank you. Have a Merry Christmas.

    So excited! I know a couple of people including my mom that would love to have I’m sure any one of the purses that are going to be up for grabs in the next 12 days – BUT…I have to admit, I love nice designer purses! I won a cashmere scarf last year on the radio and gave to my mom. This year it’s for ME!!! Unless of course I could be so lucky as to win twice, which I’m sure your probably not allowed I would have given to her. Sorry mom. I very rarely do for myself, this will be one of those times. Love them purses…..Hope I have lots of LUCK for a change!!!! Good luck to ALL!!! Merry Christmas and Keep the Reason In The Season!!!

    lets hope some of one wins. good luck to all.

  • Kelly

    I don’t mean to sound bitter but it’s a contest people! Just because you tell a sad/sobbing story doesn’t mean your going to win. Additonally, you won’t get pity from anybody unless you want to join the pity part. Enter the drawing and hope you win.

  • yujani

    Dear Santa, Could you please send me this bag for christmas. I love you. Thank you.

  • Keiko

    Thank you for letting us dream!

  • MI Mommy

    I do love purses but if I won, I would sell it and buy presents for my children. This time of year has always been rough on us, but this year is the worst. I don’t know how to explain that Santa was just to poor this year. That we had to choose between having Christmas and having heat. No purse in the world is worth that.
