Happy February!

We did it, we made it through January! Hooray! We're looking forward to a fun but busy month here at Alphabet Bags HQ. Lucas celebrates his birthday in a couple of weeks and we're going to be busy working on lots of new designs and collections. We have also got a couple of new products launching VERY soon. 

New month means a new birthstone! If you've got a February birthday or know someone who has then do take a peek at our Amethyst pouches! Beautifully bold and sparkly, the Amethyst is definitely one of our favourite birthstones! 

 Our colourful and sparkly birthstone pouches make the perfect gift! Fill with little treats and hey presto, you're winning at gift giving! 

These little pouches are terribly handy, perfect for storing all sorts of bits and bobs, from make up to money and all other handbag essentials. They also make a rather lovely pencil case! Check out the amazing amethyst by clicking here
