Hi Dave, thanks for your question. What a lucky lady your wife is, for you to spoil her with a very fabulous gift! I'm not sure of your location, so the first port of call I would suggest you make (aside from the official Mulberry website of course) is Net-a-Porter. With an international delivery option and UK and US-based sites catering to both currencies, as well as a frequently updated Mulberry bag catalogue, it just seems like the easiest and most straightforward option. If you are in the UK, you will probably find the selection, and possibly even the price, more favourable.

Other reputable places to shop online if you are in the UK are as follows: Start Boutique, My-Wardrobe, Harvey Nichols and Matches. If you are in the US, Bloomingdales and Shopbop seem to be the two to check out after visiting the US branch of Net-a-Porter. I'm not sure what budget you've set yourself, but you should know with a Mulberry bag you are investing in a classic and one which will stand the test of time. The Bayswater is probably the best example of this but I also have a soft spot for the Poppy style too. Good luck and I hope she loves the present!
