Sister in law is pregnant and I've decided I would like to buy her a beautiful nappy bag for when the bub comes!
I want something that is really nice, probably more expensive than she would buy for herself as they are a bit strapped for cash.
Where should I start looking? Are there any trendy brands I shouldn't miss?
Thanks ladies original.gif

Honestly, I have the most lovely oroton bag. But never use it. Anything that is like a side satchel is a pita. I generally just end up bunging a few nappies, wipes etc in my handbag. Actually backpacks are super comfy......ergo on the front, backpack on the back.

Il Tutto - Australian designed by ex Oroton designer. Stunning bags, range of prices. You can also tend to find onsale on online stores and DJs stock and have them on sale often.

I have 3 - red Mia, berry Nico & tan Georgia.

I have ditched my nappy bag and now use a hiking backpack from a disposals store. It is way more practical and comfortable to carry.

I love my Skip Hop Studio Diaper tote - looks just like a handbag, but has perfect pockets for a nappy bag.
Not sure if it's as 'pricey' as you're looking at, but I love it to bits!

I've bought a Storksak bag, it looks like a big handbag. We're about to have our first outing tomorrow so I'll report back on it's functionality.

Depends on how fussy your SIL is, a nappy bag might be something she wants to choose for herself. She might be very grateful for the gift and use it, but there might be features that annoy her.

after having several more expensive ones, my favourite was one I picked up at Big W.  Still use it now as an all purpose carry-all bag when I need to take a bit of stuff with me.

I think nappy bags are a bit unnecessary - something you think you need but don't. I always had a thing for big handbags (Lucky Brand do cool big ones), so now I just have a nappy roll (similar to this: http://www.madeit.com.au/detail.asp?id=640509 )in there with my stuff.
