Holiday Gift Idea: A Stylish Laptop Computer Bag

J'ToteChristmas came early here yesterday when this gorgeous J'Tote Alix Laptop Bag arrived on my doorstep.

The makers of J'Tote sent me the bag so that I could try it out for myself -- I was hoping I'd like it, but I wasn't expecting to absolutely LOVE it. The leather is soft and supple, there's a padded pocket inside for your laptop, plus lots of room (and pockets) for anything else you need to carry, and best of all, you look like you're carrying a stylish purse rather than a laptop bag.

This bag is a welcome change from the fugly laptop bag I had been using, and it got me thinking: If you have a female friend or family member with a laptop (and who doesn't?), a stylish laptop bag would make a great present. I can now personally highly recommend the J'Tote line, but if the $278 price-tag is a little on the high side for you, don't worry! Keep reading and I'll show you some more stylish options that will meet just about any budget.


KohlsI love the sunny yellow color of this Sumdex Laptop Bag (Kohl's, $99.99), but it also comes in black and orange.


TargetOf course, you can never go wrong with basic black. This Merona Croco Laptop Bag (Target, $29.99) looks like it cost a lot more than its price-tag.
