These Staud Personalized Pet Portrait Purses Are Quite Possibly the Best Gifts Ever

The silver lining for many practicing social distancing has definitely been the extra time spent with pets. Now, we get to cuddle with the Milos and Oscars of the world 24/7, instead of just before and after work. It’s, honestly, fantastic. Staud knows that, which is why the cool-girl fashion line is doing us all a solid and introducing personalized handbags with hand-painted pet portraits. Yes, seriously.

Today, Staud announced that it’s dropping a three-bag collection that can be customized with a portrait of your pet. As founder Sarah Staudinger put it, “In times like this there are certain things that make getting through the day that much easier. One of those things is our pets.”

The new pet portrait purses incorporate the trendy clean lines that Staud is known for, along with a custom painting of your furry friend’s little face. And while we’re definitely planning to buy one with our good boy painted on the front, we should also note that they’re the ultimate gift. Since they’re custom made, however, the turnaround time to get your own is about three to four weeks. So if you’re looking to celebrate Mother’s Day (and finally win the award for favorite child) with one of these beauties, you’ll need to submit your order and pet portrait by Sunday, April 12.

As an added bonus, Staud is donating 10 percent of all proceeds from the pet portrait handbag collection to Muddy Paws Rescue, a foster-based dog rescue in New York City.

1. Shirley Leather Bag

Who could resist this little face? In addition to being simply adorable, the Shirley leather bag in cognac or blush includes an adjustable tote strap, an interior zip closure bag and a gorgeous suede interior. Oh, and it goes really well with pets of all kind.

2. Clear Shirley Bag

Like its leather twin, the clear Shirley (which also comes in white) has plenty of space for treats and toys galore. It also kinda strikes us as the optimal beach bag. So, next time you’re on vacay and missing Ollie, you can just glance at his portrait in between beach reads and cocktails.

3. Bissett Bag

We love a good bucket bag, especially one with our little dude’s portrait. Better yet, the Bissett bag comes in cream and tan and features a drawstring closure so Mister Bojangles can’t stick his little nose in it.
