Why a wallet makes a perfect gift for a man


Is a wallet a good gift for a man?

The simple answer is Yes. Why? because a wallet or card holder is a timeless gift and is almost certainly the most useful.

What does a wallet symbolize?

A wallet is the place we keep everything which is highly valued. It is a symbol of wealth, success and ability because it carries money. Symbolically it could represent the conservation of life and health. In dreams too, the wallet is a sign of luck. If the dreamer finds a wallet, it indicates prosperity and financial success.

If you wish to give the blessing of more money, success, and ability then the gift of a wallet is perfect.

Why carry a wallet?

The primary reason for anyone to carry a wallet is so they have access to the things which will keep them safe in an emergency. Whether it's cash, cards, a bus or train pass or identification.

Another reason for carrying a wallet is aesthetics. Clothing and specifically trousers look terrible if there is a bundle of crumpled receipts, cards, and cash in the pockets. A wallet keeps everything flat and organised, working with the line and tailoring of the trousers and a creating a much smarter turnout.

Is it OK to give a wallet as a gift?

Absolutely! A wallet makes an excellent gift, especially as many people are so comfortable with their existing wallet, that no matter how old or worn it may look, it's the last thing they think of replacing. Here are a few occasions when gifting a wallet can be even more special too.

Graduation is a life changing milestone and warrants a special gift.

The wallet or card holder is carried every day and is a constant reminder of their ability to succeed.

Best man and groomsman gifts

What better way to say "Thank you" to a best friend and confidant than with the gift of a quality wallet. Personalise it with their initials and they will have an everlasting memory of your special day and your special connection with each other.

How do you choose the right wallet style?

When gifting a wallet is helps to know how the person normally carries their wallet and what style they have already. Do they carry a minimalist card wallet? A slim card holder is perfect for a front trouser pocket, holds a few cards and often some folded notes too. The most used wallet style in the world is the bifold wallet, which has a full-length notes compartment and is designed for 8 cards.

There are a few variations on this traditional style, and the most popular is the wallet with coin pocket, which allows the carrying of a few coins. An intentionally designed coin wallet can prevent wear and tear on trouser pockets, and they are designed to be compact.

For those who carry lots of cards, the most efficiently designed wallet is a Trifold Wallet, which by design can hold 9 cards or more. The folding design means the overall width of the wallet is less than a traditional bifold, but one filled the overall thickness of the wallet can be substantially more. The dimensions of a trifold wallet do allow for a front pocket carry.

Why personalise a wallet?

Personalisation or customisation of any kind shows you have put thought into choosing a gift. If a gift is unique to them, they are far more likely to treasure it for longer. Personalised gifts are particularly valuable to partners and family members because the extra thought is a symbol of love and affection, which for us all, is one of the most important gifts of all.
