I'm thinking about getting my girlfriend LV Neverfull MM as a surprise for her upcoming graduation. She only mentioned it once since we've been together that she wants one as she never owns LV products. We've been in a relationship for almost 3 years and she has been a very good girlfriend. So New Neverfull with tax is probably around $1300 - $1400. I probably add organizer in for her as well. Although I am leaning toward pre-loved one because pre-owned feels more like an investment piece. Just like cars get depreciation when you buy new. But I could be completely off here when it comes to designer bags? My guy friends are no help because they think it's overkill. Some suggests replica which I am totally against. Either you get a real one or you don't. From guy's perspective, lots of guys tend to think designer handbags are waste of money...which is ironic since us guys have expensive hobby and entertainment we buy for ourselves that costs a lot too. The way I see it is everything can be a waste of money unless it appeals to you. So these are the questions for the ladies' perspective, how would you feel if your SO or loved ones buy you LV as a gift? What is your thought on New vs Pre-owned as a gift? Thanks!
