23. For the fashionista always on the go
This waist-hugging bag certainly deserves a spot in this list of the best luxury gifts (and on your favourite fashionista’s waist). Formerly known as fanny pack, the hands-free accessory of the ’80s returned to the catwalks in full force under the more fashion-appropriate names “waist bag”, “belt bag”, or “hip bag”. We love this version from Yves Saint Laurent which doubles up as a clutch when you remove the strap. Stylish, convenient and comfortable to tote around.
