There are so many cute mini backpacks that it's hard not to scoop them all up! Most minis will have a main compartment and a front pocket that's perfect for keeping your keys and phone separate from your other items. These little backpacks aren't really meant to be school bags, but they are perfect as casual purses! They are also great for walking and small hikes so you can take your essentials and a few snacks. With so many prints and colors to choose from, they're fun to coordinate with your own personal style. Wear neutrals or denim mixed with some poppy colors, and you'll be spreading those geek chic vibes in no time!

It doesn't matter whether you want to take one shopping around town with you or if you want it as a swag bag for your next convention—you're sure to make people smile when they recognize these characters on your bag! The best part is when the front pocket becomes part of the design, whether it's Vanellope's sweatshirt pocket, a purse swiped by a niffler or even a letter from Hogwarts.

These novelty purses are meant to be seen! Shaped purses take conventional purse styles and turn them on their heads, and we love them for it. Do you want a sparkly food purse shaped like an avocado? What about a Grogu purse shaped like the child himself? Even something as ridiculous as Pennywise holding a huge handful of balloons can be a cool purse idea. There's even a pin purse (also called an ita bag) shaped like the Death Star from Star Wars, and we're here for it.
