Looking for the perfect graduation gift for your daughter, close friend, or relative? If she is one of the many graduates heading out to the professional world, we suggest you consider a nice leather ladies briefcase. Read on for our rationale and smart ways to buy.
For the working professional, image and perception play a big role. A ladies briefcase solidifies that image. It suggests seriousness, professionalism, and class. Whether or not the person really has those traits does not matter. A professional ladies briefcase conveys this more than a backpack or shoulder bag.
How about practicality and versatility? Almost all professional jobs require you to have a laptop computer and today’s modern briefcases are designed to carry them (special pockets). Additionally, while holding other important work items, many ladies briefcases can double as a purse, so they are extremely versatile. No need to carry around a handbag and a workbag.
Durability is probably not a big factor for some, but with the economy in the dumps, you should get the best value you can. Leather made ladies briefcases will last considerably longer than synthetic materials. While they cost more initially, a leather briefcase should have an overall longer life if carefully maintained.
Finally, and probably most important to women, is styling. Manufacturers have released very fashionable briefcases the past several years; in fact, many traditional handbag makers have entered this space to increase sales. There is a great chance of finding a ladies briefcase that can practically double as a purse for social events. Look for the recipient’s favorite brands and there is a good chance they sell a ladies briefcase version.
While they don’t come cheap, ladies briefcases are a great gift for the recent grad. Really, they make a great gift for any woman in a professional work environment. Take our advice, it is something you will be proud to give her and something she will be proud (and happy!) to own.
