The one must have gift this holiday season.

The one must have gift this holiday season.
        Currently, in Atlanta, the leaves are a gorgeous mix of yellow, orange and red and now with the Starbucks' cups all dressed up again and our calendar for the rest of the year quickly filling up, you know this means we are fast approaching the festive holiday season. (Perhaps by the time you read this, we are actually elbows deep in the holiday joy!) At the moment, it's early November but Thanksgiving (and BLACK FRIDAY SALES, hint hint ) is just around the corner and shortly after that, the gift giving holidays of Christmas and Hanukkah. Here we are folks, what you've all been waiting for, even though you didn't know you know you were waiting for it ... my clever holiday guide. I don't have an actual holiday shopping must-have list this year, I just have one thing on my gift buying list and you know what it is ... The Notebooks & Honey carryall tote bag. It's one bag, one gift but it's applicable to so many people, so really, this is a one stop shop situation.

         As a reminder, or if you are not familiar with the ultimate modern tote bag, the Notebooks & Honey bag can be a diaper bag, laptop bag and everyday carryall bag all in one. This large wax canvas tote has the key interior pockets to make this bag super functional and versatile, because who wants to carry around multiple bags just to get through the day or has time to constantly change out bags? Not me, no thank you. I'm a busy lady, a mother hustler on the gooooooo! Also, I want a bag that not only works for many purposes but is also multifaceted in terms of style that it works for a casual day out at the playground with the kids or going out for a much deserved ladies' night. Notebooks & Honey is an Asian-American female owned small batch brand from Atlanta, GA and as we are approaching my personal holiday (Thanksgiving, because the food, you know how it is), I want to thank you for supporting small business!

Do you think a Notebooks & Honey bag will make a great gift for someone in your life, but you aren't sure who? Take a look at the suggested list below of all of the people that would love a Notebooks & Honey bag this holiday season.
.
Best Gift for New Mom - Do you have a new mom friend/daughter/sister that is having a hard time transitioning from her pre to post baby lifestyle? This is a great carryall tote bag for her because she can easily use it as a very necessary diaper bag, but still feel like she has control of her life and not compromising in terms of style or her personal needs. Just because you have a new baby, it doesn't mean that you can't be you and that you have to settle for a diaper bag that screams "yoo hoo, diaper bag over here!!!". This canvas tote with its durable waxed canvas interior and wipeable nylon interior makes a great diaper bag carryall tote that they can carry around and use as an everyday bag. Who says moms can't be cool, right?!

Best Gift for Water Drinkers - Are you just so thirsty during the day? Do you always have a water bottle with you? This bag is perfect because it has not just one, but two internal water bottle holders for your thirst quenching needs. Of course, I'm not trying to discriminate, you are welcome to hold other liquids besides water for  instance sippy cups of juice, baby bottles of milk, cans of beer and bottles of wine even.
.
Best Gift for Woman That Has Everything - Well, does she have one of these awesome waxed canvas tote bags? This small batch brand is still a unique find so she likely does not own a Notebooks & Honey bag (yet) and if she already has one, why not get another one because the bags come in five different colors. If you are not sure which color to get her, may I suggest a Notebooks & Honey gift card?

Best Gift for Exercise Lovers - Do you have a friend that loves to go to the gym, yoga or go for a swim, etc. but doesn't want to carry an extra gym bag? (Why bother when everything is at the gym already, right?) This carryall tote bag is excellent because they can keep their work out clothes or swimsuit in the large interior pocket and the rest of your bag can go about its day holding the rest of your life essentials.
.
Best Gift for Working Mom - Need an amazing feminine laptop bag for your everyday but hate the idea of carrying multiple bags or carrying a too formal laptop bag? Look no further than this women's laptop bag. I just wrote about how this carryall bag is a lifestyle changing laptop bag; as the traditional view of work schedules and culture changes with the times, then so does what type of laptop bag women can carry.
.
Best Gift for Best Friend - What better way to show your friend that you are "Best Friends 4-Ever" than to have matching Notebooks & Honey bags? Whether you get the same color or a complimenting color (by they way, this is a trick statement, all the colors compliment each other), show how much you love your bestie by gifting her this amazing tote bag.
.
Best Gift for Knitters - I've seen you knitters, you are constantly pulling out your latest project when you don't think people are looking or you have a spare minute. Keep your on the go knitting (or crochet or needlepoint, you get my drift) with you at all times in this shoulder bag tote. Your projects will fit safely in the large interior pocket, so you never have to wish you had your knitting yarn and needles with you or carry a separate bag.

Best Gift for Planners and Readers - Always need to have your planner, organizer or latest reading book with you? This is totally me by the way. Well, whether it's your current book that you can't put down or you are seriously addicted to your planner/organizer , you can rest assured that all of these precious items can be safely stored in the large interior pocket adjacent to your everyday essentials in this everyday tote bag. 
.
Best Gift for College Girl - You didn't know that this trendy carryall tote bag is perfect for college students did you? If you are a college or graduate student, you don't always want to have to carry a backpack, right?  This is especially the case if you want to be more versatile in your day to day or want a more sophisticated bag for your internship or first job. The Notebooks & Honey brand is a perfect transition bag.

Best Gift for Fashionista - This modern design is timeless with its clean lines and it never goes out of style. This carryall tote is a fabulous addition to any outfit, whether you are rocking everyday streetwear or want to pair the tote bag with a  flowing dress and tall boots. This beautiful yet no fuss bag makes a wonderful accompaniment to any outfit!
.
Best for Travelers - You want a great travel bag that is sturdy enough and practical enough to hold all of your essentials while fitting perfectly in the seat underneath you? Well, look no further. Whether you are traveling solo and need to have your laptop, sleep mask, travel pillow with you on the plane or you want to be "mom prepared" for that long trip with your kids, I'm talking snacks, coloring books, cards, wipes, etc. than this is the must have travel bag for all travel lovers.

Best Gift for Busy Mom - You don't have time to change bags AND you have to carry all of your and your kids' stuff around (whether you want to or not), why not be efficient and take this large tote bag? It's big enough to haul around all of your essentials but still looks like a really gorgeous bag that you are proud to carry on a daily basis. To be honest, I have three kids and I am out of the diaper bag phase and although I'm constantly on my laptop and have my laptop with me, the most functional use for this bag, in terms of my current lifestyle, is as an everyday carryall mom bag. Yes, I said mom bag. In addition to my own things, I still have stuff that lives permanently in the bag for my kids, such as small toys or markers for them at restaurants, a small first aid kit and I'm constantly toting around a water bottle because how dare I let my kids go thirsty (eye roll, wink, sigh). Moms rule!

Best Gift for Lover of Bags - If you have a bag lover in your life, you know they will want one of these for their bag collection. Made of waxed canvas, this is a durable bag and has so many cool pockets which makes this bag so multifaceted and who doesn't love a large tote bag? They are just so practical, you can put all the stuff in there!   Believe me, whether they actually need yet another bag or not, bag lovers are always on the search for their next new bag. So they will love you for this gift!
.
Best Gift for a Boutique Owner - Did you know that Notebooks & Honey is a wholesaler? If you have a friend or family member that is a boutique owner/retailer, then they will love this bag because this could be an inspiration for a new product that they can sell in their shop.  The trend for shopping small and shopping local is such a great mindset and small shop owners love to support each other as well as feature products that are unique and have a great personal story.

Best Gift for You - I've saved the best for last ... Because it's the holidays and you deserve to treat yourself! Have a happy, relaxing and memorable holiday season!
