We all have people in our lives that are hard to shop for, and each year get a tad bit tougher than the last. Yet there are great gifts out there that are both trendy and practical. Actually, for some people, a great handbag, messenger bag, or tote bag would be the perfect gift. You are probably assuming that the best group for such would be students, but there are several other groups that could really benefit from a designer handbag or messenger bag.
Motorcycle riders are a group that has been consistently overlooked when it comes to products like messenger bags. But actually, a messenger bag would be a great fit. They are small enough to be worn by the rider while riding. And, the design of messenger bags prevents them from being a hindrance to the rider. There is the stereotype of the tough leather wearing and tattooed motorcycle riders, but thanks to gas prices the more people are turning to cheaper transportation. So, there is a wide variety of motorcycle riders. However, sites such as www.isidoradesigns.com allow you to design a bag. So, you can create the messenger the best fits the motorcycle and/or scooter rider in your life. Bicyclist and bicycle couriers also make a great target for receiving messenger bags for many of the same reasons as motorcycle and scooter riders.
Messenger bags are also great for the paper pushers in your life. Although many organizations are going paperless, there are still professions that are bogged down by paper. Government workers, teachers, social workers, claims adjusters, all still rely heavily on paper, and often these type of employees have to transport their work between their homes and offices. For this group, you may want to shy away from the customization; and, stick with solid colors or a more stylish, yet professional look.
Also, consider a messenger bag for freelance writers, photographers, journalists, and novelists. This group is typically out and about seeking inspiration. So, they usually keep their work with them at all times, whether it a laptop, notebook, or camera. For the creative types, you are looking for a bag that highlights their individual style; or, one that screams creativity or trendsetter.
And, sometimes you simply need to give the gift of organization. Messenger bags are the perfect gift for friends that are trying to stuff too many things into a regular purse; and, people who can never find keys, cell phones, work badges, and other items that they need on a regular basis.
When you think of messengers bags you immediately see students. And, although they are great for students, there are many other groups of people that could benefit from a messenger bag. Basically, you would be giving the ones that you love the gift of organization and the ability to transport work easily with style and flare. And, even though they will totally love the messenger bag, don’t be surprised if you see everything in their messenger bag, but work.
