A bag so cute, you won't want to take it off. The floral print makes this a playful yet sophisticated choice for your workday bag and its perfect size—just big enough to hold a pair of running shoes, essential toiletries, and a change of clothes—make it an easy choice for the gym as well. Take advantage of the reflective strips and the waist and chest buckles by using it to ride or run to work. ($125; (Can't get enough of the feminine print? Check out these floral workout clothes.)

We love a good bag; but we love one that helps out a great cause even more. Every Sword & Plough bag uses military surplus material for at least part of its construction with ten percent of all profits going to veterans. In this bag, you'll find a laptop sleeve, two exterior side pockets, and a zippered lid pouch for maximum carrying capacity. Plus, since it's made from military-grade material leather and canvas, you know you're getting something that will last in the long haul. ($289;
