It's that time of year again. The air is crisp, the leaves are changing colors, and you're in a race against time to find just the perfect gift for your loved ones! And if you are looking for something special without breaking the bank, well...we know it can be a bit frustrating, ugh! Don't worry- we've got you covered with our handmade leather wallets! 

These sleek little leather goods will be sure to make anyone feel extra special when they unwrap their presents. 

Why are we so confident they'll make you look like a superstar gifter? 

For starters, most people don't splurge on practical items even when they desperately need one. Therefore, when the gifter purchases a usable item that's also beautiful and goes the extra mile by monogramming the recipient's initials, that's pretty special. Hint, hint!

Plus, your loved ones will think of you every time they grab their wallet- which is pretty often! 

Of course, there are no rules against spoiling yourself with a new wallet. So, you may want to purchase more than one.

How Do I Choose A Handmade Leather Wallet?

When choosing a handmade leather wallet, look for these three things: the quality, stitching, and pockets. Cheap wallets typically have unraveled seams, squeaky zippers, and flimsy fabric lining. When comparing the prices of wallets, keep in mind that many inexpensive ones don't even last one year before falling apart, and nobody wants that!

Quick Tip: The easiest way to test the quality is by pressing each corner with your fingertips. If there's any give/bounce in the construction is a sign the quality is not there.

What Makes A High-Quality Wallet?

First, it's essential to buy one made out of genuine leather, as this will ensure that it is sturdy, durable, and definitely worth your money. 

Leather Quality:

The higher the quality of leather used to make the wallet, the more durable it will be. 

Genuine leather will be thicker than faux or imitation leathers, which are thinner and more lightweight due to the use of artificial materials like polyurethane. Natural leather is also both stronger and softer in comparison to its synthetic counterparts. 

One way to determine the difference between real vs. fake is to drag your fingernail along it (leather has drag). Grain-less plastic combined with rubber and polyester allows manufacturers to create whatever texture they want for any surface they want at a super cheap price. However, you won't be able to feel grains.  

Leather Stitching:

Good stitching should include both "single needle" and "double-needle." If there isn't any stitching around the edge, it will signify that materials were just glued together, and it may fall apart in time. 

Leather Pockets:

Finally, your wallet should have enough compartments or pockets for everything you need to place in your wallet, like credit cards, cash (or different currencies), identification cards, etc. 

We took special efforts to pay attention to all the above factors when handcrafting our leather wallet collection. They are not only practical but stylish as well since we aim for a timeless design.

And by adding a special touch with our custom monogramming, it makes for the perfect gift. Personalized wallets are thoughtful presents that your best friend, mom, or even yourself will love!

How Many Years Should A Handmade Leather Wallet Last?

A well-made leather wallet can last for decades if properly cared for. A good rule of thumb is to keep the inside as clean as possible by using a damp cloth or micropore tape to remove gummed-up dirt from glossy surfaces. 

A leather conditioner will help remove wrinkles and give your wallet a more supple feel. Finally, taking precautions against water damage and staining materials by not carrying loose items in your purse is always a good reminder.

Style Tip: Pair your new wallet with a chic outfit. Try styling your wallet with a casual dress and simple jacket!

Showcase your personality through your fashion choices. Every woman needs the appropriate accessories to make her look from day to night and back again. A simple small change like switching out your wallet can do the trick!

Matching your wallet with your outfit is one of the easiest ways to take a look, from a simple casual day or night look to a fashion-forward statement. The right wallet will complete an outfit so you can feel confident at any event.
