Gifts: A Valentine's Day present to have and to hold

February 13, 2011 |  8:30 am

Here’s a hint, boys: This is not just any little bag. It combines three of any stylish girl’s larger-than-life obsessions — influential designer Marc Jacobs, edgy artist Stephen Sprouse and forever-fashionable leopard print. So if you’re in the dog house, you’re bound to score big points here.

With all the wild patterns on spring runways, what better time for Louis Vuitton to bring back the iconic, highly coveted Sprouse leopard print in the form of a chic, heart-shaped patent coin purse ($490, also in white and blue, at and the company’s Rodeo Drive store)? The golden brass chain trimmed in a matching heart charm is designed to clip into your bag (or possibly onto your beau, if he’s not behaving). But we trust that he is if you have your hands on this.
