What to get your booze-loving BFF who has everything?
A prosecco-holding purse might do the trick. The limited-edition accessory from Italian wine producer Ruffino is a see-through PVC bag with faux wooden handle that perfectly holds the six mini-bottles (187 mL) of sparkling wine that it comes with.
What separates this transparent tote from any other clear waterproof carrier is (literally) the plastic separator that fits neatly between each bottle, so the glass doesn't clink as you're swinging it around on the way to the beach or the nearest rooftop pool. You can remove the separator though to use the purse as a fashion statement, especially since the see-through accessory trend is still going strong for summer.
And, yes, we said waterproof, meaning you can fill this handbag with ice, then rinse it off after use. While it's not insulated enough to keep the bottles cold for hours, it will hold up in "rough" summer conditions like watching your friends' kids do cannonballs into the pool. Cheers to whoever doesn't get water in mama's prosecco!
Since this Champagne campaign began, these bags have been blowing up, even at the (ridiculously inflated, in our opinion) price of $100—which, yes, includes the little bottles of sparkling wine pictured above.
So, while they were available for preorder to ship July 8 via ReserveBar, they're already sold out. Bummer. Hopefully, when the bags start shipping, they'll be restocked.
You know what they say: Fizz the season (for spending $100 on a booze-toting bag, obvi).
