We have a winning gift equation for you to follow this year that will take your giving from a single gift to an entire experience...

Urban Market Bags+ [insert gift idea here] = extremely happy recipient

Friends and family will be thinking of you all year long when they are on the go with their Urban Market Bags in tow. Pick up a pack (or two, or three) and start thinking up clever combinations to inspire memorable experiences. Or read on for our gift recommendations. Artisans, small businesses and sustainable practices were top of mind when selecting our holiday gift picks this year.

For your Hip Girlfriend
