Still on the hunt for the perfect gift for a gal-pal or relative? Give the gift of fashionable functionality with the grown up backpack. Most of our backpack associations involve grade school or summer camp. Squash those memories of cringe-worthy Jansport, because the backpack has undergone an adult makeover. While it still maintains its practical benefits (TWO thumbs up for both hands free!), the backpack is now, dare I say it, chic. There is a plethora of gorgeous Chanel-inspired chain strap mini-backpacks, but I'm talking about the actual practical backpack. The one you can schlep your sneakers in. It's the perfect carry-all for airports, playgrounds, the gym, and the list goes on. BUT beware of theft and do not put your wallet or valuables in an easily accessible pocket! Shop my faves below.
