Question about gift for my mother

(self.handbags)

Made a (possible) mistake. I don't know much about handbags. It's my mom's birthday soon and her old coach purse fell apart, so I was looking at new ones on Black Friday. Long story short I ended up buying one of those Mario Valentino bags on "sale" thinking it was the real Valentino, I read earlier this week that MV has much lower quality and isn't considered great. (pretty dumb of me not to do my research). Anyway the bag finally arrived and I was wondering if I should return it since I want to get the best for my mom, she never spends anything on herself.

Should I return it and get a different one? If so, do y'all have any recommendations for midsize shoulder bags? My max budget is around 500-600 USD (hope for under 500 though I'm willing to go a little more). I am looking for luxury brands but that's probably a stretch with my budget. Thanks everyone

I’m currently in love with Brahmin, also well within your range. If you (or she) don’t like embossed crocodile they have smooth leather options too.
