1) A Moisturising Hand Cream

When we’re on the go, and frequently washing our hands (or applying drying, alcohol based sanitizer) our hands can get cracked and dry. So it’s important that every woman has a little moisturizing hand cream in her purse! A cheap drugstore brand usually works just fine if you don’t want to break the bank on special brands. 

2) A Glossy Lipstick 

If lipstick is nice enough to be on your lips, it’s nice enough for your handbag too! Make sure that you have a small tube of the perfect shade in an easy-to-carry case. Having lip balm or gloss can also help with dry, chapped lips from all those days spent outside and exposed to elements.

3) A Pocket Mirror 

This is especially important if you’re a woman who likes to wear makeup every day. Make sure that your handbag essentials list includes a pocket mirror with a handle so it can stand up on its own!

4) Emergency Sewing Kit 

This might not be the most glamorous item on your handbag essentials list, but it can come in extremely handy, especially if you’re a fashionista who loves to add unique touches and accessories to all of her outfits! It’s also helpful for those times when shoes spring a leak or buttons pop off coats while out and about.

5) A Nail Kit 

Having a nail kit in your purse is helpful for many reasons. First, it comes with all of the basics like scissors, files, and clippers to keep those nails looking pretty! Some kits even come with tweezers so you can give yourself a quick manicure wherever you are.

6) Emergency Contact Details  

Even if you’re never in a situation where these are needed, it’s still worth having them on hand just in case. Make sure that every woman has her name and number written down somewhere in their purse so they can be contacted in an emergency!

7) Medication  

This is especially important if you have any pre-existing conditions. Make sure that every woman has medication for at least a week in their purse, just in case something happens and they need to be out of the house suddenly! Such as painkillers, CBD oils or nausea pills. A creative thing to add to think about is a doob tube. It is not only very fashionable but also convenient. This might not sound like an accessory, but it’s definitely worth making room for.

8) Bandages  

These are great for all of those minor emergencies that happen when you least expect them. For example, you never know when a slippery floor might have your sunglasses flying off! Just make sure to get the right size so they will fit on different glasses and handbags.


In conclusion, every woman should have these handbag essentials on their list. Whether they are into fashion or not, it’s always good to be prepared for whatever life throws your way.

  1. A well-equipped handbag is a woman’s secret weapon.

    Essentials like a wallet, keys, and phone are obvious, but add in items like a compact mirror, lip balm, hand sanitizer, and a mini notebook for jotting down ideas.

    These essentials ensure preparedness and confidence wherever she goes. This is my contribution, thanks so much for sharing!
