bags of style

loop makeup bag.jpgEver on the lookout for stylish makeup bags, to hold our objects of desire, we were totally thrilled to come across This witty site (helping men buy gifts for women – I love it!) is packed full of uber classy handbags, jewellery, sleepwear and loads more luxe goodies.

Men are gently hand held during the present selection process. It’s like having your very own personal shopper. Is the gift for a birthday? An anniversary? Choose an option and the site suggests the perfect gift.

Little details make this site different. Browniepoints realises that men are fallible and reminds them of important dates. And helps them out in other ways too. For example men in the doghouse can select the option “I’m in trouble” and choose a gift worthy of this occasion.

But there’s nothing to stop us gals cutting out the middle man (literally) and heading straight over to ourselves to bash the plastic.

I’m totally loving this Warhol inspired makeup bag by Loop. It costs €29 and delivery is free. Plus to make it ever better there’s a 20% discount in October!

    I have a teeny bit of a problem with this site. Another example of how men are treated as bumbling idiots who don’t have a clue. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I sometimes have difficulty thinking about gift ideas. And as for brownie points, us women in relationships need them just as much as the guys. Anyone agree? Or am I turning into John Waters? (The Irish Times columnist, not the American movie director)

    Actually, my problem is that I pretended I was himself & selected all the options he would to see what recommendations would come up… and not all women love pink jammies!!!!

  • Roisin Dubh says:

    Heh heh … good point. Some of the stuff is nice though.

    The handbags are absolutely gorgeous on this site!

    And I agree Roisin, us woment need help too – maybe they could set up a site for us. When buying for my dad for example I am faced with the choice of yet another rugby book, jumper, or other uninspired gift

  • Roisin Dubh says:

    What about … “ – Helping people buy gifts for other people”. Catchy, eh?

  • Jen says:

    I think women are actually easier to buy for then men. There are far more options tp get for women. A site for ladies buying for men would be great.
    Especially after eharng the theory that you only have 10 great gifts in you in your relationship. About ten fantastic they can’t believe how lucky they are to have you inspired choices and then it’s jumpers and dvds.
