Both my husband and I go a little bezurk when the Internet connection goes down. We just don’t know what to do with ourselves. Well, how about we make dinner? Oops! My favorite recipes are online. Well, let’s see then. Why don’t we order pizza? Oh, wait, we do that online too. Well, let’s just go to dinner, then. Is it open on Saturdays? Check online…oh, wait a minute. Okay, I’ll just do that project for work. Hmmm…that won’t work. I need an image off Flickr. See where I’m headed here…our laptops are our lifeline.
If your husband/dad/grandpa owns a laptop, then he is mostly likely a tech-savvy kinda guy. He probably wants to protect that piece of property as if his life depended on it. What better gift than a laptop bag to suit his personality?
the Switch MB (base price: $129.95) by Brenthaven
A messenger bag with a reversible flap, this is an excellent choice for the younger dad (20’s and 30’s). It has that cool, intellectual “university” vibe. With 17 different flaps to choose from, you’ll be sure to find something just perfect for the recipient of your choice.
the Cargo (~$100) by STM Bags
Trend-setting, sturdy, and full of character, the cargo goes beyond basic black. The oatmeal-colored canvas bag with chocolate detailing is an outstanding selection for the modern businessman. It looks like the kind of bag that you would see in NYC. Who would be carrying it? A successful stockbroker wearing a Brooks Brothers suit – and very expensive shoes. ***Enter to win a bag of your choice from STM bags – see below.
the FIGURA ($159.99-$169.99) by Tucano
You can’t go wrong with this classic briefcase-style laptop carrying case. It’s simply professional with loads of functionality. Pockets provide the ability to organize and you can choose to carry it by the handle or to sling it over your shoulder with the accompanying strap. Available in black or dark green, the FIGURA is an optimal choice for the organized and efficient businessman. ***Enter to win this bag – see below.
the Expand-It Messenger bag ($84.95) by BBP
Sleek, stylish, and ultra-cool, this is the bag for the city slicker dad. BBP thought of everything with this bag. It even includes a matching snug laptop sleeve for those times when you want to tote your laptop and don’t want to carry anything else. There’s also a luggage handle pass through for use when he’s cruising through the airport to get on his next flight. To top it all off, this bag is the epitome of modernity. I actually think I might have to steal this one from my husband. It’s THAT chic. ***Want to buy one of your own?
