I think any of these unique handmade bags (at three different price points) would make a person smile:
Showpony's Vintage Shopper, $20 and Graphic clutch by Oktak, $29
Recycled sail(!) tote by Reiter8, $65 and Tortilla Girl's Linen bag, $78.
Leather Truffle bag by Morelle, $185 and Weekend Bag by Paco & Lupe, $96
