Gift Guide: The Perfect Gifts for Her

Finding the perfect gift can be a challenge, and 2020… isn't helping! Doing your shopping in person won't be the same this year. Rather than dealing with long lines, masks, and carrying your six-foot tape measure everywhere you go, why not shop from the comfort of home?

Our digital 2020 Gift Guides are here to make gifting a breeze, so you can finish out a crazy year with at least a little bit of peace. Browse our site to find premium, handcrafted leather accessories, enjoy fast and free shipping on every purchase, and help us to end exploitation in Ethiopia by creating safe, stable jobs.

So whether you're going all-out for Secret Santa, you're here for a special someone who deserves the best, or *gasp* – you're here to treat yourself this holiday season (we won't tell), a sustainable leather bag is one of the best gifts she could ever dream of. Now choosing the right one might be a little tricky, but that's where we come in.

Here are our 2020 top picks for her; stick to this list and you can't go wrong!

We'll start with the obvious – our Merkato Signature Tote is a must-have for virtually any woman on-the-go. Supremely versatile, built to last forever, and made with the finest full-grain leather, this tote will quickly become the only one she wears. For a slightly different profile and look, give the Caroline Tote a chance to wow. More minimal in approach, the Caroline is a lightweight leather bag with a thin strap, but still spacious and strong for daily use.

Leather backpacks are quickly becoming the go-to choice for urban adventuring, casual hang-outs, or even dressing them up for a day out. Equally at home on the subway, at brunch, or at the winery, our
Miramar Leather Backpack is the perfect accessory pack.

It's lightweight, low-profile, and ready to style in a couple different ways. For more adventurous adventures, you might find the Mari Backpack to be able to hold a few more snacks, a fresh top, and even a bottle of wine or two for picnic season. Either of these will quickly become the best backpack you've ever owned (or gifted).

For the busy women always needing more pockets, look no further than the
Eden Carryall. Featuring a zip close, multiple interior pockets, and perfectly proportioned handles, it's a mid-sized tote perfect for running errands all over town. For an equally-versatile bag in a smaller package, the Makeda Crossbody might just be the perfect leather crossbody. With a foldover construction and a comfortably slouchy look, it's ideal for casual evenings out or for giving a contrasting touch to a more dressed up outfit. 

But what about when your day trips turn into a weekend away? Our
Taytu Weekender is the ultimate travel bag, featuring a sleek design and a surprising amount of space inside. With wide interior pockets, specifically designed padded laptop sleeve, and an adjustable crossbody strap, this weekender bag proves that we thought of everything. 

Sometimes, the best things come in small packages. Our Nyala Clutch represents a foray into high-fashion, while maintaining a grounded Ethiopian style. The polished brass handle rings are made of defunct artillery, upcycled from conflict zones in Ethiopia. It's ideal for keeping the bare essentials at an arm's reach, while sightseeing during the day or on your night out.
