Sorry, we didn't mean to scare you. But the holidays are here again! So you're probably on the hunt for the perfect gift for someone special -- even if that person is you! If you're shopping for someone else, you listen for dropped hints throughout the year, and scour the Internet for the best gifts.

The perfect gift has to be as special as the person who will receive it. We may have just the thing! Meet the KMM & Co. leather tote bag: It looks great with any outfit (and under the tree). Here's why it might be the holiday gift you've been searching for!

1. It fits all the essentials. . . and then some!

It's no secret that a handbag has to hold EVERYTHING: Not just a wallet and keys, but a bobby pin for those flyaways, a kick-butt proposal for the next team meeting, a snack for a hungry child (or grown-up!), a book for some entertainment when stuck in line. . . the list goes on!

A KMM & Co. tote is roomy enough to hold all those things and more. Each tote is cut from beautiful full-grain leather and assembled by hand. It also works just as hard as the person who carries it: Each tote will last a lifetime, no matter what you throw at it (or in it).

It holds everything my previous tote holds, including wallet, passport, makeup bag, umbrella, water bottle, keys, scarf, etc. I still have room for a pair of shoes and even an outfit if I needed! I plan to sell my other three leather totes from a popular brand who no longer makes their bags in the US. I would much prefer to support a local, American made company. The quality of this bag is like nothing I've ever seen before in a handbag, including ultra high end bags. The craftsmanship that went into this piece made it a work of art. - Kristy L., ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

2. A leather tote ages beautifully.

KMM & Co.'s leather tote bags are beautiful from day one, don't get us wrong. We use full-grain leather -- the best quality available -- in a variety of rich colors. The style is timeless, and so is the leather. That means it only gets better with age.

We hand-select leather that becomes more supple and wears in beautifully, even with daily use and abuse. Over time, the leather develops a beautiful patina unique to the person who carries it. If you're looking for a gift that will stand the test of time, this might be the one. All of our leather goods are designed to last a lifetime, and we stand behind our craftsmanship.

Sturdy, beautiful, durable: I freaking love this bag. I bought it almost a year ago and it’s still in great shape. I am very rough with my bags, but this one has stayed pretty. I cram it full of heavy stuff often, I spill stuff on it at least twice a week.... and it stays nice. I had a girl crush on this bag for a year, and I’m so thankful that I gave in and bought it! - Christina V., ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

3. Each tote is 100% handmade.

At KMM & Co., there’s no cheap mass production. We’ve returned to American craftsmanship. Each new design is meticulously prototyped and tested. We use traditional leather-working techniques, and we do things the old-fashioned way: by hand. And nothing says, “You’re special” like a handmade gift.

In our Atlanta studio, each tote is hand-cut from a single piece of leather (for the fewest possible seams). Then, it gets stitched, turned, riveted, and finished -- all by talented American workers. But we don’t stop there. Expert hands touch, stress-test, and inspect your tote at each and every stage, so you can feel confident that your tote is going to last a lifetime.

I coveted this bag for two years; when I saw they made a mini, I knew I had to make the splurge. What I didn’t expect was my mom falling in love with the bag the moment SHE set eyes on it. Now I’ve ordered two. Absolutely gorgeous. Worth it.- Liz V., ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

4. It's made to order and customizable!

The perfect gift feels special because it's hand-picked, unique, and maybe even personalized! No two KMM & Co. totes are ever exactly alike. We use full-grain leather, and each hide is a gorgeous one-of-a-kind, with natural variations and markings. (That's how you can tell it's real leather!)

Plus, every tote can be customized so it's absolutely perfect for the recipient. In addition to choosing the color, you can select the drop length of the handles, or add a crossbody strap or snap closure. And each standard tote includes a coordinating leather tag, which we'll emboss by hand with the initials or message of your choice. How's that for personalized?

Give me all the KMM & Co totes! I am so glad I purchased this bag! I have a tough time finding a tote large enough, that is also a quality piece. This exceeded my expectations. The leather is soft and gorgeous with the perfect amount of slouchiness. I can tell it’s going to age beautifully. The copper rivets are gorgeous. I carry my wallet, makeup bag, oils, snacks, and so much more with room left. I also love that my sunglasses can be placed inside without getting scratched up. The quality and simplicity completes my soul! - April, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
