Please help me decide which LV for a gift!

  1. Ok, so I know I'm seriously bugging y'all for your thoughts but you're so very versed and I knew I could count on you guys! Anyway, having pleasant experiences w/ my LV's and hopefully another great experience when I take my new baby (Ribera MM) out for a test drive, I've been thinking all night and I'm going to spring for a surprise gift for my best friend who is graduating from med school in a few months. She's petite like me and very understated and classy. She's mentioned she likes simple lines like the small Batignolles (the hand held one) and the mini-looping bag (w/ the flap closure) and a few others but those are the only ones that stick out in my mind? What do you think is the best bet and why? TIA?!

  3. I think the batignolles is cute and it isn't too big but it's not too small either.

    I'm not a big fan of the mini looping so that's why I chose the batignolles.
     
  4. Definitely the batignolles, because the strap on the mini looping bag is a DRAG! (It is round and not flat; therefore slipping and sliding all while hurting your shoulder)
     
  5. I totally agree! The batignolles, for sure. The strap on the looping is a real hassle!
     
  6. Does anyone know if the smaller Batignolles fits easily in the crook of your arm?
