Exactly one month to Christmas. No, don't stop reading, we are not here to make you anxious, but to give you a hand.
We all have a somewhat bipolar relationship with Christmas: we always look forward to it, but then it always seems to come too soon, we love the tinkling atmosphere that makes us children again and we hate the pressing idea of having to think about the right gift for this and for that. We always reduce ourselves to last-minute purchases which then do not satisfy us, we seem to have bought useless, trivial, always the same things and to have spent money in vain just to feed a little the Christmas industry, which unfortunately has little to do with it. what to see with the romantic image of the Santa Claus workshop with the elves who create one by one the gifts so desired by each of us.
Well we don't have elves, nor reindeer, nor the divinatory powers of the beloved bearded old man, but we really create our bags one by one. They are all different: unique pieces made with extreme care in the artisan workshops of the Marche.
And this year the Marche, in particular the inland villages, such as Sarnano where we are, are preparing to face a very different Christmas than usual: a Christmas marked by the difficulties of the earthquake that hit these places, leaving many people in difficulty. and many small businesses. From this traumatic event, however, we have certainly learned something: to give the right value to things. Here, the only rule of our guide should be
GIVE USEFUL GIFTS ONLY
Now, utility is not just a practical matter: beauty is also useful. There are objects that give us pleasure, that make us feel good about ourselves. This is what we think when we make our bags: useful beauty. This is what you should think about when buying gifts for the people you love.
And now let's move on to the facts! Here is Paul Meccanico's 2016 Fashion Gift Guide.
1. THE GIFT FOR ... "I LOVE BIG BAGS, BUT I NEVER FIND THE KEYS"
The answer is Airstone, our best-seller. A practical and functional tote bag, to be carried by hand or over the shoulder made of truck tarpaulin and synthetic leather. It has an internal pocket with zip closure, one with a tear and a removable purse to have even the smallest things at hand.
2. THE GIFT FOR…. "IN DOUBT AN EVERGREEN"
Mini: a name that is guaranteed, small and elegant the bag never goes out of style. Mini is chic, but without frills, with handles and shoulder strap and the practical removable purse. Simple, but always welcome.
3. THE GIFT FOR ... "LESS IS MORE"
Large bags are comfortable, but women all have the same problem: they tend to fill them hoping that sooner or later the Mary Poppins effect will trigger, instead only the weight effect will trigger. Well, we reveal a foolproof remedy to this age-old problem: reducing the size of the bag. This is why there is Ribella, the clutch bag that reduces weight and increases style.
4. THE GIFT FOR… "AFTERNOON SHOPPING?"
For shopping addicts, for those who go from one shop to another around the city like spinning tops, for those who never stop, you need a large bag, but not too bulky, to be carried strictly on the shoulder because the hands must always be free. For them, the ideal is Pepe.
5. THE GIFT FOR…. "TREASURE, CAN I PUT THE WALLET IN YOUR PURSE?"
The typical phrase of the man who thinks he doesn't need a bag. Then you discover that he is actually saddling you with three sets of keys, a half-chill smartphone, two tablets, cigarettes and a purse of coins (which do not fit in the wallet). There is only one solution to all this: give him Mipok, the Paul Meccanico bag, practical, resistant and waterproof, available in many different styles. For sure you will also find the of him.
6. THE GIFT FOR ... "GYM TONIGHT, SWIMMING POOL TOMORROW"
If you know a sportsman, you know that he is always there to fill and empty his bag. If you want to make him happy, give him a roomy, functional, resistant one, which he can slip into all the lockers without the risk of tearing it, perhaps even rainproof and easily washable, like Rolling. If you don't want to be so daring, however, you can always opt for a practical bag from the I am doping free line, perhaps combined with a bracelet.
7. THE GIFT FOR… "WOULD YOU LIKE A WEEKEND IN PARIS?"
For travel addicts, there is nothing better than Raid, the super-roomy travel bag, but ideally sized to be used as hand luggage even on the plane, as an alternative to a trolley.
8. MORE TO ADD?
Yes, if you are looking for a less demanding gift, you can take a look at our belts, which are always unique and handcrafted.
