The Ultimate Guide to Picking the Right Wallet For Your Guy

Updated on October 26, 2020 by Chris Bajda

He can't leave home without it. That's just how wallets are. It is one functional accessory that keeps his cash, credit cards and personal IDs organized. Not only that, it’s one gift he is sure to keep for a long time. Wallets also have a way of making a fashion statement, one that can reflect his personality and style. Regardless of what purpose it may serve, it is one thing he would always have with him no matter where he goes. And one that would of course always remind him of you.

Take time to choose the wallet that would fit right into his pocket keeping in mind how you want to help him get organized and the kind that would never look as stylish as can be. Here's a quick guide on how you can choose the best ones: 

STYLE

A wallet has a distinct purpose, and that is to keep the money. However, as evolution took place in humans so did it with wallets. Nowadays, wallets contain cards, coins, and more. Consider though if a user is a type who carries a bag or puts all his essentials in his pocket along with his wallet. If so, you may give him a bifold wallet, a minimalist wallet with card slots or, a checkbook wallet. But if he is a type who carries a bag with him, consider giving him a money clip or the evolved version with pockets, a hybrid slim wallet, or a simple card holder wallet. In short, know your man and then you can choose a wallet for him.

BRAND

Although it may not seem like it, men check the brand of wallets they use or buy. There are trusted stores and names they will consider buying from first and if the credibility of these stores or brand has been established, it may be best to purchase their wallets from them. That way, you are 50% sure they will like it.

DESIGN

The designs of wallets may be limited on the first look, but they differ in the number of pockets or card slots, features (such as coin slot and transparent photo slot), color and engraving. A personalized wallet will always be preferred by a sentimental guy, especially if you put a custom message on it. A personalized leather iPhone case design will be appealing to men who always carry their phones and nothing else. This wallet will make them carry both their phones and their money at the same time. Talk about form and functionality at the same time.

MATERIAL

Simple as they may look, wallets are made with different materials too. Some are made with leather which is durable, elegant, smooth which can slip easily into pockets, and versatile. However, there are also those that are not waterproof, and can be a bit bulky plus the price is quite expensive. Some are made from an elastic materials which make wallets thin and slim, flexible, and obviously, costs cheaper. Elastic wallets’ life span is short and may give him a hard time fitting stuff into its small slots.

Metal is also one material they use for a wallet which is tough and durable. It makes wallets slip easily to pockets, and can create a cool design for wallets that may seem like a well-engineered wallet. However, metal material can also cause discomfort when worn as a wallet as its edges may be sharp and wear down his trousers or damage other gears in his  pocket or bag.

Metal Wallet for Men

Another material is polyester which is scratch-resistant. It can offer a more variety of colors, a bit less expensive, and very easy to clean. However, it is not an eco-friendly choice and the overall look of your wallet may seem a bit too casual.  Wood is another material choice for wallets. It is seldom used for wallets but is durable and can produce a very manly design and be engraved too. Not to mention its affordable. However,  it may be difficult to keep in pockets as it may hurt the user and he may have a difficult time inserting cards to the slots.

No matter what kind of wallet you choose, this gift gets to stay with him for a few years and it better last more than that. So, it's really worth taking time to choose the best ones. It will always be a gift appreciated and more like something he can always remember you by.
