If you’re buying for a mother or mother-to-be this Christmas, consider gifting something practical. For mums, a bag that’s functional yet good looking is a rarity. Sage&Luna’s solution is a line of baby bags which are convertible and fashion-focused. You can select from handbags, large bucket bags and backpacks crafted from natural grain leather, with plenty of space in each. All styles come with a wipeable nylon interior, waterproof changing mat and straps large enough to hang on a pram. Plus, for every item sold, Sage&Luna will donate a birthing kit to a woman in a developing country.
