Stylish, Unisex Baby Changing Bags

This round up post isn’t strictly interiors, but we’re bending the rules a bit with this one, as it’s something I had to hunt for fairly recently now that I have a new small person in my life (note: for anyone who knows us this is Kath posting not Liz – Liz would like to stress that she hasn’t secretly acquired a child).

The world of baby changing bags was entirely foreign to me, but when I started looking I was immediately overwhelmed by the amount of choice. I was also a bit put off by the out-and-out girliness of a lot of the bags, which isn’t me at all, and I certainly wouldn’t inflict a pink cupcake-print bag on my other half (not if I want him to ever change a nappy).

Below are my pick of bags that I think are simple, stylish and practical (ie. you can wipe them down / stick them in the wash) and don’t scream ‘changing bag’.   Some are specific changing bags, and others are simply backpacks that you could use as a changing bag if you pick up a handy changing mat insert.  Any of these I’d be happy to use as a normal bag beyond the changing bag stage and, most importantly, all have passed the husband test of ‘minimal embarrassment if made to carry’.

For those of you interested, I ended up buying a unisex navy changing backpack from Etsy shop One Duo (which has Mary Poppins-like capacity and zillions of pockets) along with a spare travel changing mat from JoJo Maman Bebe.  It’s been worth the investment as I love the look of the bag, and other handbags aren’t getting a look in at the moment!

A Gift Idea For Stylish Commuters

I’m a dedicated user of public transport, but I’ll be the first to admit that it’s not the most glamourous method of travel.

At this time of year buses and trains are rammed with commuters more concerned with wrapping up against the horrible weather and avoiding the bugs of fellow travellers than looking stylish en route.  Perfect hair and make up gets a battering as windows steam up with the collective body heat of soggy, frustrated passengers.

Small luxuries bring a sliver of pleasure to the daily routine, and by treating yourself to something like a lovely hand crafted leather travel pass holder, you can inject your daily commute with a bit of style.

Liz bought me this cracking specimen from an Etsy seller called Tovi Sorga last Christmas.  Not only has it replaced the standard issue plastic pass cover which was falling apart, but it also makes me feel a cut above the rest on the 97 bus, and I’m sure I’ve clocked a few envious looks from fellow passengers (or they could have just been giving me the side eye for inadvertently pushing in front of them in the queue…).

Torvi Sorga also make a whole range of other leather goods in bold prints and graphics that would make great gfits (I won’t mention the C word yet, but if you’re organised enough, go for it).
