Recession Shopping: Mother's Day Handbag Gift Ideas Under $150 at Macy*s

1. Steve Madden Totalli Woven Tote - $78
2. Nine West Great Find Medium Tote - $89 Now: $66.75
3. Liz Claiborne Suit Yourself Large Satchel - $90
4. Alfani Torano Medium Tote - $168 Now: $117.60
5. BCBGeneration Gia Medium Satchel - $138
6. Style&co. Dome Clutch - $40
7. La Regale Croco Frame Clutch - $48 Now: $36

I've had many readers ask me whether or not I planned on featuring more affordable handbags for Mother's Day. I can't say I had planned on it, but since you've asked for it I'm happy to oblige. Most of the stores I already featured for Mother's Day are not exactly recession-friendly so I choose Macy*s as a suitable online (as well as in-store) shopping destination. My handbag picks are all under $150. Don't expect to find the same quality as more expensive designer bags. With the exception of the Alfani tote, all the bags are crafted from PVC or other synthetic materials. My choices were strictly based on pricing, overall style and function. I know many of our mothers would be embarrassed to receive expensive gifts (even though they deserve them). These selections are meant to offer you the chance to get that special mom a fab looking bag for a nominal price. It might not last past this season, but I know moms are known for their ability to stretch the life out of any item.

Happy recession shopping!
