I must remember to send the other birthday girl her present - hopefully if I order this right now from Net-a-Porter it will arrive in time and it will not look like I have forgotten her! We're both fans of Anya Hindmarch but even during the sales, her bags are still pretty expensive. Also they do weigh quite a bit, so once you've loaded it up with all your essentials, you can get serious arm and shoulder strain. These canvas totes are a happy compromise. I've put in the gift card 'Many happy returns from one old bag to another!'
