Call Me Definitely: Optari Crossbody Bag
Lately I've been reading a lot about holiday gift-giving within big families, and each of these stories seems to have something in common: teenagers. They're notoriously difficult to buy for, and unless you plan on shelling out big bucks for designer duds or the latest gadget at Best Buy, your purchase may be greeted with a forced smile and a mere "thanks." (Why do you think grab bags and Secret Santas are some popular these days?) I don't mean to go all Grinch on you, but it's frankly my least favorite group to shop for. Well, if you're like me -a glutton for punishment who tries to seek out creative options- but you don't want to buy yet another iTunes gift card, check out the latest teen accessory that deserves a spot under the tree. The Optari Crossbody bag is as fashionable as it is functional. It's small enough to hold a cellphone, money and a tube of lipstick for quick touch-ups. Wear it as a wristlet in one of nine colors, and you're ready to go. Who says good things don't come in small packages? This is one gift that won't result in any eye-rolling...not deliberately, anyway.
In a Nutshell: A celeb favorite, this pint-sized purse is just begging to be dangling off your niece's wrist.
