Luxury Christmas Gifts from The Real Handbag Shop

Find luxury Christmas gifts from a large selection of leather handbags, work bags, business bags and purses at The Real Handbag Shop online. Treat someone special with a premium gift from amongst famous brand names Gianni Conti, Kipling, Marta Ponti, Ri2k, Arcadia and Nicoli.

Here are some great luxury Christmas gifts ideas to spoil your favourite lady and all under £180…

Christmas is the time for giving and splashing out that little bit
extra on luxury Christmas presents for your beloved. One of the best Christmas present ideas is a leather handbag that you wouldn’t necessarily use every day but is a treasured indulgence to be proud of at special occasions such as weddings, anniversaries, 18th and 21st birthdays, romantic holidays, cruises, galas, parties and important days such as Christmas Day! Italian designers Nicoli have created the most glamorous calf leather handbags for just such occasions in shiny, shimmering snake pattern. Shown here is the Nicoli Handbag in Platinum Snake at £179.95; a sparkly champagne coloured handbag which is perfect for those all-important celebrations!

If you wish to demonstrate your expertise in fashion savvy then opt for the regal tones of violet, purple and inky grape which are currently so in vogue this winter. I can whole heartedly recommend the Marta Ponti Large Shoulder Tote in Violeta Sauvage Leather at £165, the Kipling Vintage Leather Yindi Handbag in Cassis Nubuck at £149.95 and also the Ri2k Large Jerri Drawstring Tote in Cherry Leather at £159.95. Also, for something bang on trend and highly sophisticated have a look at the Arcadia Italian Leather Handbag in Purple at £159.95 – as shown in the picture. I’m sure Prince William's Girlfriend, Kate Middleton, wouldn’t say no to this one!

Looking for a romantic Christmas gift? Fall in love with Marta Ponti leather handbags. Online shopping sites don’t really do this brand justice. Marta Ponti designs the sort of handbags that catch your eye in an exclusive boutique and tempt you to casually wander over. Once you’ve touched the exquisite leather and beheld the luxurious quality, that’s it, you’re in love and regardless of price, you know you just have to have that handbag or die! Opening a present on Christmas Day to find a gorgeous handbag such as the Marta Ponti Shoulder Tote in Grey Sauvage Leather at £165 gives a girl that same tingly lovin’ feeling!

We all know that girls love chocolate and some say it’s almost better than sex but how about giving her a non-fattening chocolate gift this Christmas in the form of a delicious dark chocolate brown leather handbag instead? We adore the fabulous Kipling Vintage Leather Narika Cross-Body Bag at £99.95, Kipling Vintage Leather Gade Handbag at £129.99, Kipling Vintage Leather Yindi Handbag at £149.99, Kipling Vintage Leather Emmet Shoulder Bag at £159.95 and as shown here, the biggest and most impressive of them all, Kipling Vintage Leather Charu Shoulder Bag at £174.95. So good you could almost eat them and much healthier, too!

No luxury page would be complete without a mention of Gianni Conti, the ultimate luxury brand. The good news is that the new winter stock has just arrived and as you would expect, there are some exceptionally fine leather handbags, work bags and purses to choose from so do pop over to and take a look. Worth a special mention is the Gianni Conti Maremma Saddle Bag in Brown at £95.95, a highly popular cross-body bag which has beautiful rich mahogany overtones. The perfect gift for connoisseurs of fine leather!

Christmas Gifts for Real Women from The Real Handbag Shop

Looking for Christmas gifts for women? How about a gorgeous new leather handbag or purse? Check out for a huge selection of gifts for mum, wife, auntie, sister or girlfriend. Prices start from just £19.95 for the stylish Catwalk Collection Milan Leather Purse.

Here are my top gift tips to make this Christmas special for the lady in your life:

Ri2k London; the best-selling handbag from the Autumn/Winter 2009 Collection was Ivy in svelte black suede and leather. Sadly these have sold out already but we still have the next most popular Ri2k Cici Grab Bag and its big sister Ri2k Large Cici Tote along with matching Ri2k Large Flapover Cici Purse in black, chocolate and teal colours. Handbag and matching purse presents are always a clever idea which demonstrates that a great deal of thought and attention has gone into finding the perfect gift for the recipient. The gold detail makes these bags look really expensive whilst the quality of the materials and classic versatility of the collection makes it excellent value for money.

Catwalk Collection Leather Handbags; probably the best known brand online for fashionable leather handbags and highly recommended by those who already own one. Once you’ve had one, you’ll be back for more; I should know, I’m the proud owner of twelve Catwalk Collection handbags already! Exciting new arrivals include: Jane in Christmas Red; Martina in Winter White; Louisa in Dark Chocolate Brown; Jodie in Cream/Dark Brown; Teagan in Blue; Teagan in Green. All Catwalk handbags come with a Retail Price Tag attached but with our great offers you can save up to 23% off these prices; with great designs such as Mia in Red or Tan you spend just £49.95 but your girlfriend thinks you’ve spent £65 on her!

Kipling Vintage Leather Handbags; if the lady in mind is a fan of Kipling handbags, chances are she’ll already have one of their standard fabric bags. Why not treat her to a heart-stopping leather version which not only looks and feels fabulous but will last longer, too. Kipling handbags come in a whole variety of cool fashion colours such as Antracit, Caramel, Dark Olive, Cassis, Brown and Ink. The one shown in the picture is my personal favourite and on the top of my Christmas list! I’m a sucker for high quality soft leather and the antique brass metal zip detail keeps it from being too girlie.
