Vera Bradley Review ~ Perfect On-The-Go Bags and Gifts!

Right before Christmas I was given the honor of reviewing a couple of items from Vera Bradley. I say honor because, if you’ve ever used a Vera Bradley bag you will know what I mean, these bags are AMAZING!

 Not only does Vera Bradley offer beautiful, eye catching bags, but they are sturdy, functional and they have many other items perfect for any occasion! This review came at the perfect time for us because we were going out of town for part of our Christmas break so I was able to really put the items to test! 

I was sent two items from Vera Bradley: the Grand Traveler and the Cheers to You wine bottle gift bag, both in the Floral Nightingale print. First, let me just say that I absolutely love this print and when I opened the package and saw this is what I was sent – I was elated! This print is absolutely GORGEOUS! The Grand Traveler measures 21″x14.5″x9.5″ and has a 52.5″ removable strap. Although we didn’t fly over the break, it was great to know that this bag is carry-on compliant and I will be able to use it the next time we do fly! It also has a trolley sleeve that allows you to slip it onto a piece of rolling luggage to easily get through an airport with your bags! This bag has so many great features! It has pockets on the back and underneath the front closure, it has four large pockets inside, the removable shoulder strap is incredibly handy, and it has an exterior ID window as well! The bag is a convenient zip closure to keep your items secure. My husband and I used this bag for our clothing items to go out of town for three days and we had plenty of room for more, which was my plan because I knew we would be getting gifts to bring back with us!  This bag is a great size for an out of town weekend visit, it is beautiful, and it is perfect. Finally, it’s even machine washable for easy care when you return from your trip! I have not one complaint about this bag and I totally recommend it to everyone now! I am actually packing this bag again and will be using it for my trip to the hospital when baby Addy is born soon! It’s great because I can pack all of those “not sure if I’ll need this” items along with the necessities and baby’s items – all in one place: my beautiful Vera Bradley Grand Traveler! 
As for the Cheers to You wine bottle gift bag? That was perfect timing for the holidays as well! One of my friends was having a holiday/house warming get-together and we were questioning what we should take. When this arrived, we had our answer! We decided on taking a nice bottle of wine in this gorgeous gift bag for her! Let me just say she was thrilled! She absolutely loves the Vera Bradley gift bag, I really don’t think she cared what was in it because she went on and on about the bag! It was perfect! The bag has a small amount of padding and a drawstring closure to secure itself around the bottle of wine. This would also be perfect for the upcoming Valentine’s Day and sharing a bottle of your favorite wine with that someone special!! 🙂 
Vera Bradley has such a wide array of products and prints with each product that everyone is sure to find something they will love! They have the Get Carried Away tote that would be the perfect diaper bag (especially for me since I’ll need to carry around items for two kiddos)! They also have incredibly stylish handbags that I will be asking for come my birthday this year! 🙂 Be sure to follow Vera Bradley on Facebook to keep up with their newest styles and sales and even look them up on Twitter @VeraBradley!

  1. Eco Baby Mama Drama says:

    Wow that print is gorgeous! The perfect size bag and what a pretty idea for a gift of wine!

  2. Great print!
    My mom has bought my girls the little hand bags from this line and they’re so cute. My girls love them and with a 2 and 4 yr old, they’ve held up tremendously.

    I agree that this is a great company! Great review as well, didn’t know they had wine bags and stuff, I just thought of purses

  3. I love that print and the wine gift bag is sooo cute! I didn’t know they made those! I bet it would make a great gift without putting wine in it. Thanks for the review!
