How to Buy a Woman a Handbag
I’ve been told I’m hard to shop for. I get it, who wants to shop for a professional shopper? That would be like me offering professional tax accounting services to my mom, the CPA. (That sounds totally illegal, by the way, but you get my point.)
But then I realized by way of interaction with essentially every man I’ve ever encountered (bosses, hairdressers, fathers of friends, dudes at dinner parties) that this isn’t a consequence of my choice of occupation; this is about the intimidation factor that comes along with being a lady. Most men are just straight-up clueless or terrified about making purchases that will please the females in their life—be it their wife, sister, or “no label” companion. It seems they’re happy to spend, but they want to do so smartly and successfully.
So, I’ve devised a shopping road map/cheat sheet to help get you in and out of the store with the right bag that perfectly suits her taste and lifestyle. You’ll see it’s really not that hard after all. (Says the professional shopper.)
