I think it's a lovely idea and your friend is lucky to habe such wonderful friends.
I just wonder if it might be an idea to give her a voucher so that she can choose the bag herself, unless you know her style and tastes extremely well. A bag is something so personal in terms of taste, how and for what purpose it is needed/used, that I would hesitate to choose a bag for someone else, because I would be worried that she might have preferred another one - regardless of how beautiful the bag I'd chosen was.
God, I've bought it now. Do you think they'll exchange it for another one if she doesn't like it? She's always wanted a Mulberry bag and this one is fairly similar to her normal style so I'm hoping I haven't got it spectacularly wrong!
Sorry, I didn't mean to make everything more complicated! I'm sure that, IF she really wanted to exchange it, they would let her (provided that she's got the receipt and original packaging). But, since it really is a beautiful bag, and since you say that it is very similar to her usual bags, I'm sure that you have hit her taste well
