Wow, wish that was our tradition, all I got both times was a nice c section scar.

You may want to post this on PurseForum instead if you are after £££ handbag, those ladies over there will spend £700 for you in a couple of clicks.

Personally, I would buy 3 handbags for that money and get 3x the pleasure! or i've recently seen this Chloe Marcie which made my heart stop

Congrats - wish my Welsh hubby had a tradition like that!

I love this

Which would leave you enough money to get a day bag, perhaps like this

You could get a Chanel purse (wallet) or other small item for that.
Mulberry bags are around your budget too.

tPF is confusing unless you know which designer you favour.

Enjoy your shopping spree! grin

Congratulations! Lucky you, I am also Pakistani but I never got anything from DH with any of my 3!! I would be after a Mulberry bag, in fact I have dropped hints that when he makes his millions I will want one. As madame says Purseforum may be better for this. Good luck with your search!

I would go for a miu miu bag if you want a bag. My preference would be to buy another piece of jewellery. For 700 you could get some diamond studs for every day wear which would be a more lasting purchase. My husband has promised me a diamond eternity band when our first is born.

For 700 you could get a band with some flush 1-2pt diamonds set half way round.

anon2011 Wed 05-Oct-11 20:43:07

or maybe 1/3 way round

I would get a nice watch

For £700 you could get a gucci watch without stones.

I would get a Louis Vuitton Scarf. The Louis Vuitton leopard stole in Marron is £505. I LOVE mine and although utterly and totally frivolous is makes me feel fab every time I wear it. You can throw it on over a Primark top and still look the business.

I like this miu miu bag - its quirky.

The new Gucci mini bags are cute

I wouldnt waste my £700 on a gucci watch, I just dont think they are worth it.

I would however waste my £700 on this (and scrape the money box for the extra)

anon2011 Fri 07-Oct-11 11:37:52

Nice - that is a much better watch.
