My hubby really wowed me this Christmas with not only a beautiful necklace, but also a Miche bag. It's like a Transformer for grown-up girls: A basic black purse with interchangeable maganetic covers. Apparently they are quite commonplace in the Lower 48, but here in Anchorage I've only spotted a couple being carried and have only found them at specialty boutiques. They come in three different sizes and have an infinate number of covers. You can even design your own on the product's website. It's on the few items I wouldn't mind a friend also having, because each has it's own character. You can also purchase different lenght straps for the bags.
