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 a place to keep our valuables safe. It is often seen as a symbol of wealth, success, and opportunity. A wallet can be given as a gift to represent the wish for more money, success, and ability in the recipient's life.
If you wish to give the blessing of more money, success, and ability then a wallet is the perfect gift.
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.
A good graduation gift for a guy
Graduation is a life changing milestone and warrants a special gift. The symbolism of prosperity and financial success could be the reason why personalised wallets are so commonly given as graduation gifts. 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.
New parent gift
A beautiful new baby is always a cause for celebration! And while mothers are often showered with gifts, fathers don't always get the recognition they deserve. A personalised wallet is a great way to say "congratulations" and welcome prosperity into a new father's life.
How do you choose the right wallet style?
It is worth knowing that rarely do men swap their style of wallet. If they carry a traditional bifold wallet, chances are they will continue to carry a bifold.
Incidentally, the most used wallet style in the world is the bifold wallet, which has a full-length notes compartment.
A slim card holder is perfect for a front trouser pocket, holds a few cards and often some folded notes too.
Just as compact but with a dedicate notes compartment is this – a card wallet with notes pocket. Complete with RFID, this style caters for cards and cash in a compact and lightweight design. It can be carried in both the front and back pocket of shorts and trousers.
There are a few variations on this traditional style. Other than world famous bifold, the most popular alternative is the money clip wallet. This sleek yet spacious leather wallet gives you all the space you need to carry your cards, ID, bills and more! It’s designed with a pull strap with a finger tab.
Should I buy a Wallet with RFID?
If you have cards, passports, or devices with data chips, then RFID-blocking technology in your wallet or passport holder can keep your data safe. Without RFID-blocking thieves can steal your credit card information just by standing next to you.
It’s important to note, that a thief would have to be standing very close to your card without any obstructions to steal your data. However, for your own peace of mind, it is worth having RFID-blocking technology. Taking all necessary steps to secure your personal financial information is important.
All wallets, card holders and passport wallets should include RFID as standard.
Should I include money in a new wallet?
When giving the gift of a wallet or anything that is meant to hold money, you should put money in it. This can be as simple as a small coin. It is thought that by putting money in a wallet that is being given as a gift, you are ensuring that the wallet will never be empty.
