The Dress A Day Dozen Gift Guide: #12 Diana Eng’s Fortune Cookie Purse

by Erin on December 22, 2010

Have you seen Diana Eng's fortune cookie change purses? So cute … 

Cookies!

They're made of recycled leather and "branded" with a number, and come with a little dust bag (and have a fortune ribbon inside). They're $45, and Diana's made 425 so far. [Full Disclosure, she sent me one, and I sent a copy of my book back to her. :-)] They even smell lovely, that new-leather smell … the kiss-clasp is nice and tight, too. I hate a sloppy kiss-clasp. 

Remember, if you give a purse as a gift it's traditional to put a shiny coin in it first. (I like to use Susan B. Anthony dollars.)

(If you like my blog you will really like Diana's book, Fashion Geek. She and I have had the best conversation about LEDs that it is possible for two people to have.)

[And we're still on the fundraising drive/Secret Lives poll:]

If we reach $1200 in donations by December 25, I will write a new "secret lives" story, that will include the top-two vote-getters below:

This series of gift ideas has been very bad for my “gimme gimme” bone. These fortune cookies most of all!

It would be cute to also put in a “fortune” from a real cookie too! I mean how cute would that be
