We hope your other half kept the receipt. It's not that you didn't want a "man bag" - it's just that the rest of the world is quite ready for you to take that step. That, and you'd much rather spend the money on one of Nanamica's new offerings.
Promising to cradle all you hold dear throughout the new year, it's hard to pick a favourite from the outdoor pursuit designer's new luggage collection for spring 2015.
For cyclists, there's a top-opening backpack (£299) made from hard-wearing Cordura twill. As well as looking particularly luxurious, the leather straps and brass buckles keep everything secure, while a padded back panel and compression straps ensure your load is a comfortable one.
The briefcase (£269) is made from the same indestructible Cordura twill, with a similar roll-top construction. A padded shoulder strap and leather handles make for practical lugging options, with a feast of internal pockets.
There's also a fetching "day sack" (£219), tote bag (£269) and a duffel bag (£279) so attractive that you're going to want to book a holiday just to put it to use.
Currently available from End Clothing, we're pretty sure there won't be any hard feelings once you reveal what you swapped your original gift for.
