Holiday Gift Guide: For the Young Professional

A gift for the gal who is just getting into the corporate world will be much appreciated and useful. A quality bag for carrying everything, a notebook to keep track of meetings, and of course, a bright coffee mug for those mornings when caffeine is (extra) necessary.

    Since I'm a young professional, I would like to officially vouch for every single thing on this list and express how stinkin' CUTE it all is, and how absolutely thrilled I would be to receive any of 'em under my tree this year. Pass the note along to Santa for me, wouldja? Great list, girl!

    I love how much Kate Spade there is on this gift guide. I have the Gramercy Grand in silver, and I love wearing it to interviews and my internships… I feel so professional! I would love a leather tote. As much as I love my Longchamp… sometimes it feels a bit unprofessional. This is such a great guide!

      I definitely agree, Zoe. The Longchamp is great, but I think these Fossil bags are great for a professional environment. Thanks for reading as always!

    As a young professional in training (haha) I would love to receive the Fossil bag. It's a laptop bag, right? I've been looking for one that is sleek and not made of mesh/plastic.

      I have a Fossil bag that I used for an internship. It was perfect. The one I featured fits laptops up to 15". Thanks for reading, Brittney!

    This gift guide is spot on! I think my morning commute/work day flow would be made way better if I received any of these present underneath the tree this year, hehe.
