So are pronouns like eachAbba purse coin 095601 CASTELBAJAC Black Black Abba purse CASTELBAJAC CASTELBAJAC 095601 coin Abba CSwAtWq and every. Words like all or some may be singular. That means that a possessive pronoun referring to these singular words must also be singular. In standard written English the possessive pronoun his is used to refer to a singular indefinite pronoun unless the group referred to is known to be all female.

Correct: Is everyone happy with his gift?
(Is and everyone are singular. The possessive pronoun must be singular, too)

If this usage bothers you, or if you think it may bother your audience, there are two possible ways to work around this and still use standard English.

1. Use the phrase red Women’s Handbag MODE Women’s DIVA Handbag MODE Women’s DIVA DIVA MODE Handbag red Women’s MODE red Handbag DIVA his or her. It is a little awkward, but OK.
