Shoppist’s 25 Gifts Of Christmas: Day 1

25 days, 25 gifts, all hand-picked by us.

Now that the holidays are officially upon us, we here at Shoppist are in full gifting mode. Starting today, December 1st, come to Shoppist each day as we unveil our 25 top gifts to buy this season. (Trust us: We’ve shopped everywhere to bring you the best of the best.) 

Up first? This gorgeous leather weekender by Canadian designer Jennifer Yau. Her line, One Fated Knight, is inspired by the Middle Ages (see the sturdy hardware and Old World detailing), but rendered in a totally modern way. And it’s practical, too, with a roomy interior, detachable shoulder strap and two outside pockets. We love its tiled leather exterior, a rich, glossy black that looks even better with age.

The Details: One Fated Knight ‘Chancellor’ bag, $310 at Sugarcube, 124 North 3rd Street, Old City.

Give To: Boyfriend/husband.
