dagne-dover-tote-gifts-fitness-holiday-giftDagne Dover Tote, $265

This bag is a boutique fitness lover’s dream (and the answer to my toting wishes). It has a water bottle compartment inside (which could double as a juice holder?), a laptop pouch (for a 15″ computer), and still has room for sneakers. It totally solves that I’m-carrying-three-bags-with-me-again feeling. Oh, and, it’s totally chic, too.
