Colin Hanks and Rita Wilson Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson’s son, Colin Hanks, recently got engaged to publicist Samantha Bryant. And what did Rita Wilson give her future daughter-in-law? A $10,000 handbag to congratulate her. Initially a Hermes Birkin comes to mind, but there are many other handbags that she could have purchased. Not too shabby a gift. I definitely did not get a $10,000 handbag when Vlad and I got engaged, but I must say that gift is totally out of the ordinary. As is having your in-laws be Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson. What guesses do you have on the gift from Rita to Samantha?

      What a fantastic mother-in-law!! I would definietely guess that it would be an hermes bag. I would say mother and daughter in law are off to a very good start. All mother in law’s should learn from this. I hope I’m as generous as she is when the time comes.

    What a weird engagement gift, isn’t it supposed to be sort of a “joint” or “couple” gift? If I were the new daughter-in-law I would be wondering what the heck a PURSE meant…what symbolism…

  • Zarka

    Yah!!!! I would love any designer bag from Rita…Wow I think that maybe she got Zagliani Crocodile Tote. It is one of the most glamorous traveling bags this season has to offer. This generously sized tote is designed out of exotic crocodile with a luxe matte finish. Price: $11,300

    My first guess would be for the new Hermes SHADOW Birkin. That looks amazing considering how subtle it is. Beautiful craftmanship and would be a gorgeous gift!

  • spanish moss

    perhaps some upber exotic bag from nancy gonzales?

  • Zarka – I suppose typically I would question that gift, but it is a Hanks, I would take it with open arms and obviously love love love the bag!!!

  • Mrs. T

    I’d gladly accept such a gift. A token small gift would’ve already been appreciated, but a $10k gift? Wow! Lucky daughter inlaw, and what a generous and thoughtful mom inlaw Rita Wilson is going to be :)

  • Carol

    WOW! Who cares? I’m sure it’s gorgeous!
