THINK of a gift by designer Michael Kors and a glitzy watch or leather handbag is what will most likely first come to mind.
So spare a thought for the girlfriend of one Irishman who was left more than a little disappointed when he opted for a less conventional take on the designer present.
With an original Michael Kors accessory costing hundreds of pounds, inventive Thomas McCallion decided to take matters into his own hands and improvise.
Rather than splashing out on some expensive designer gear, he called on his artistic skills to create his own version of luxury.
Using a black marker and a can of Coors beer, he crafted this hilarious alternative 'Michael Kors' creation.
And he was more than pleased with the result.
"My girlfriend wanted a gift from Michael Kors for her birthday, so I improvised," he joked on social media.
Although it's fair to say that his girlfriend looked less than impressed with her birthday gift...
Have a look...
