My sister in law loves bags but she can't really afford the higher end bags ... so I got her the speedy for Christmas. Do you think that is a good choice since it is a popular model and is not super expensive. I would have bought her any bag but I thought if I bought her a $2000 bag ... she might feel bad - did I do the right thing?

Like what john said, speedy is a great choice. It's classic and timeless. She'll love it. I think its a must-have in any purse collection whether its high end or lower end. Good luck!

The speedy is a classic. And what a nice person you are to think of someone that way!! If she feels embarrased by the expensive gift just tell her how you feel about her and why you wanted to give it to her.

Wow thats awesome, congrat's to you for buying her that bag. I cant see why she wouldnt like it.
If she's not happy with it, maybe she's not into high end lv's.

How sweet of you and I think your SIL will love it. She will have it forever. It is such a nice thought on your part. I have given my SIL expensive purses (my old used ones but still in excellent shape) and she has sold them on ebay and keeps buying cheap purses. I think for the money you spend, you buy another cheap purse every month. So now I give away bags I don't want to friends who will use them.

Harley, Where I come from...an LV Speedy is an Ultra High End Bag...it would be an extragavant gift for somebody to give, esp to a "sister-in-law". They'd have to be lottery winners around here to be so generous. LOL!!!

Your gift is wonderful. Don't second guess yourself! You can always add accessories for birthday, next Christmas...wish you were in my family. Not that some don't have money, but the "trust funders" are the absolute cheapest!! LOL
