Wanting to get your mom something for Mother's Day that's stylish, functional and affordable? Well these laptop bags are not only just that, but they are the perfect accessory for summer. If your mom needs a new laptop carrier, spoil her with one of these cute bags... which just so happen to be three of my favorites as well!
Sea Blue Laptop Bag
This bright floral laptop bag is super light and extremely durable. The exterior is polyester which makes it easy to wipe-off and the interior is fully padded with lots of compartments for all your mom's gadgets. Each bag fits up to 14.1" laptops and includes a long shoulder strap. Priced at $55.
Thin Mustard Laptop Carrier
If your mom likes sleek purses and totes, she may enjoy this thin sleeve carrier by Pinder. Each sleeve has a tough, water repelling exterior with lots of compartments inside for pens or a power cord. What's great about this carrier is the fact that it can be used many ways..you can carry it by the handles, attach the included shoulder strap, or put it in another bag or backpack. Many sizes available and a variety of colors if you don't fancy the mustard. Priced at $35.
Stephanie Metropolitan Laptop Bag
I love this butterfly laptop tote because it reminds me of a stylin' beach bag. But if you look closely you'll notice that it is a fully padded bag, perfect for any laptop! With luxurious leather trim woven and burlap fabric, this metropolitan bag features two padded pockets and metal feet on the bottom. Priced at $188.
