Black Embroidered Fan Purse

Why not give your mum something truly glamorous to show her you don't just see her as a laundry-doer and dish-washer? Carrying this beautifully glamorous purse from Topshop will make any woman feel good about herself.

I don’t know about yours, but the state of my mum’s purse is absolutely atrocious – she’s a horder born and bred whose handbags and purses are stuffed completely full of a lifetime’s worth of train tickets, phone cards, store cards that have never been used and old dog-eared magazines. As a result all of her purses are completely knackered and burst apart at the seams every few months or so, only to be replaced with a new one – that’s why this year I’m thinking that I’ll get her a really good one that she can’t bring herself to spoil.

If you’re thinking of getting something similar for your ma this year, don’t just go for something practical and cheap from the reduced bin at TKMaxx – she may say thank you, but really she’d probably prefer something a bit glam and silly. After all, wouldn’t any girl rather be given a pair of Vivienne Westwood heels instead of practical wellington boots, no matter how useful they are? You know I’m right.

We’re making this easy for you – above in the gallery are some of our favourite purses to buy online. Have a peek!
