Sean Lowe Catherine Giudici

Well, well, well -- somebody certainly seems to have a keen sense of how to please the ladies. (Out of the bedroom, of course.) Since he's a total gem-of-a-guy, Bachelor Sean Lowe bought Catherine Giudici a handbag for her birthday -- but it's not just any old purse.

Nope. He hooked her up with a Louis Vuitton bag, so now she'll fit in perfectly with all the other designer handbag carrying ladies out in L.A.

And his reasoning for splurging on such a pricey gift is the perfect combination of sweet -- and really sad.

Sean told Us Weekly, "I felt like she's sacrificed a lot to be down here, left her job in Seattle, all that stuff, so I thought I'd get her something really nice. She was happy with it."

Huh. I guess if you give up your job, friends, and family to pick up and move to a new city for the sake of your fiancé's career, a fancy purse is a pretty nice consolation prize.

OMG! I mean, it's all well and good that he wanted to give her a nice gift -- but does he really think a purse is going to make her any less lonely while he's off grinding all over Peta Murgatroyd doing Dancing With the Stars?

Hmm. On second thought, maybe there are some cool things Catherine can carry around in that bag to make sure she's entertained while Sean is away. Like a good novel, for example. For whatever reason, she strikes me as the bookworm type. Perhaps of copy of Fifty Shades of Grey will help pass the time? (Among other things.)

Or how about some crossword puzzles? Those might be fun. 

Ooh! Or wedding magazines! Yeah, I'm sure that purse is big enough to hold a whole mess of 'em. (Unless Sean bought the smallest and cheapest style, of course.)

Seriously though, I guess there are worse gifts he could've bought for her. If nothing else, at least Catherine will look chic and trendy while she's wandering the streets of L.A. alone.

Do you think a handbag makes up for Sean's absence?
