“ Brand: Boots / Type: Gift Bag „
After buying lots of nice wrapping paper and bows I thought that I couldn't take my presents home in carrier bags, it would just ruin the whole look of the presents and as I've put so much effort into them I wanted to buy nice gift bags to take them home in. I bought two of the kids gift bags with santa on from boots at a cost of £2.50 each. The reason that I chose these bags is that I thought that they looked like they would be good for children. My sister's are ten years old and 23 years old, so one of them isn't exactly a child but I thought that even though the bag was clearly aimed at children it was still nice enough for an adult. It just has a very festive look and who doesn't love santa? It was only when we got home that I realised that they match the gift tags that I bought for my ten year old sisters presents, this wasn't planned, it was just a bonus and one I'm very pleased with. I like when things match and I like coordinating things so having my sisters gift bag and gift tags match is definitely a plus for me.
I think that the bag does look really good. It's just so bright and colourful, perfect for children. More importantly though it's quite hard wearing. I had to carry my presents home on one bus, three trains and then in the car, plus a little bit of walking in between. I had been concerned that the bag would split before I got it home but it didn't. It held up very well. The presents that I put in it weren't too heavy and there weren't too many of them (there were about four or five medium sized presents), but they were heavy enough (certainly heavy enough that my arm ached by the time I finished my four hour journey home).The bag is surprisingly spacious and if I hadn't been concerned that the bag would break before I got it home I would have been able to fit a lot more presents in it. The bag kept it's shape as well which I thought was good. The only downside was the name tag that was on one of the bags did break off by the time I got it home but a name tag isn't essential on the bag so that didn't really bother me. The bag was looking so good when I got the presents home that I took the presents out and reused it and it still looked like a new bag on its second use.
I would definitely recommend this bag. It's a really cute looking bag, perfect for children but still nice for adults. It's a spacious bag and reasonably strong.
