Special feature: the BagPod

 

Are you still wondering about what to get your wife or girlfriend who already has everything this Christmas? If so, then spare a thought for the BagPod which has been Highly Commended by the Giftware Association.  It’s the brainchild of Swedish born Marianne Sparrenius-Waters of RedDog Design Ltd., based in Abergavenny, Wales, UK. It’s essentially a bag that fits snugly inside a handbag.

Now, before you start wondering “why on earth do you need a bag inside a bag?”, picture this scenario: you’re about to go out for the evening; you’ve got dressed and it’s time to go – only all your ‘things’ are inside the handbag you were using during the day and now you’re wanting to go out with a different handbag. Of course, you find yourself desparately rummaging around for the items you want with you.

The idea of the BagPod is that it holds all your key essentials already, whether that be your glasses, your keys, your iPhone, your lipstick or whatever. Anything that you always want with you, you put in your BagPod and the rest of the handbag can be used for other, less essential items.  So, instead of all that rummaging, you just take out the BagPod and transfer it from one handbag to another, and you’re good to go.

So simple, yet one of those ideas you wished you’d come up with yourself! The BagPod has a total of 10 separate compartments, one of which is zipped, and a leather strap/keyring to keep your keys secure. It also comes in a multitude of colours so it can match or contrast with a range of different coloured handbags. It can be bought with a canvas or leather finish but we recommend the luxurious leather which comes in 3 sizes (small, medium and ‘business’) and with a lovely, soft velvety finish inside.

Prices for the leather version start from £69.95 and a list of stockists can be found here.

    Never heard of this wonderful invention before, I must own one. My handback is rather large and resembles a bottomless pit.

    I have no idea what’s even in my handbag, can take me forever to find my phone – good idea!
