COACH Personalized Bags For Mother's Day

I recently had to take an unexpected trip to the Apple store to get some things on my phone fixed. While they completed the repairs on my phone, I was phoneless. I know...gasp. The time they were going to be working on my phone allowed me just enough time to browse around some stores that I have not been into in a while. One of those was COACH. I remember receiving my first COACH bag in high school. It was a beautiful little leather bag and sometimes I still wear it to this day. 

If you are not familiar, Stuart Vevers was brought on to be the Creative Director for COACH and in my opinion has reinvented the brand and infused it with style and sophistication. Vevers, has a history for designing for such acclaimed fashion houses as Louis Vuitton, Mulberry, Calvin Klein, and Bottega Veneta. 

Y'all know I love a monogram, and putting a personalized touch to gifts that I give. Imagine my delight in being introduced to the new ways that COACH is making the art of gift giving just that much more special by the storypatch, monogram, & bag charm for their new saddle bags. I am obsessed with these for Mother's Day, and graduation gifts! COACH was sweet enough to invite Rachael and I over so we could take a look at the bags and see all the ways to customize them. 

The saddle bag comes in two sizes, hand-finished in luxurious refined glovetanned leather. The smaller size is 9 inches wide and comes in 12 colors, and the larger size is 12 inches wide and comes in 6 colors. 



Monogramming is available for the front of the flap, or the side tags.

 The interior of the bag is where you are able to customize the storypatch. THIS IS MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE PART. Select your words, and they are placed on the storypatch on the interior of the bag for a truly one-of-a-kind gift. 

Lastly, you have the option of choosing a bag charm that adds even more personalization to the bag. This charm spoke to me for my Mom. It represents our families love of flowers, and my Dad recently received an award for his service for his passion of fossils with the Dallas Paleontology Society, so obviously the TRex was a must.  


Don't have time to make it into your local retail location? No problem. Simply go to this site via your desktop, phone, or ipad, and you can customize directly on the site, and see your bag in real time. So you could see the bag above, I hopped on the site and created it so you could see...

If you are ordering for Mother's Day, be sure to place your order no later midnight ET April 20 for guaranteed delivery. If you're ordering for another occasion, these bags take up to three weeks for delivery so be sure to plan accordingly. Are you planning something special for Mother's Day, May 8th? What do you think about these as a gift?
