If you’re looking for a travel wallet to give as a gift — maybe even as a gift for yourself — you’ve come to the right place! But first, Emma here and last week we had the task of finding the best travel wallet for gift from the bride to the maid of honor. Since her MOH travels a lot, a passport cover (aka travel wallet) came to mind. But she didn’t just want any travel wallet; she wanted the best travel wallet out there.
So, what did we do? We got to work! And we made a list of the ten best travel wallet gifts you can buy. These are coincidentally all made of leather; we found this is because you need a durable travel wallet, especially when traveling to far destinations. And here’s what we found!
First things first: what is a travel wallet? A travel wallet, sometimes known as a passport cover or passport holder, holds your essentials close at hand when traveling, like your ID, your passport, currency, etc. In our list, some are passport covers, while others are slimmer travel wallets which are great for everyday use. If you’re traveling, chances are you need at least a passport holder and a quality one is nice to have.
Best Travel Wallet
So, what determines these ten as the best travel wallet finds?
Ah, good question. We never take a “best-of” list lightly; just like these favors, those PJs you all love, the groomsmen gift list, and these bridesmaid gifts, finding the best is a priority. We work really hard to find you exactly what you’re looking for.
For our list, we looked for both mens travel wallet and womens travel wallet gift ideas. We also looked for rfid wallet capability, as well as non-rfid.
We’re also including a few rfid wallet suggestions, since rfid travel wallet / holders are really popular right now. No one wants to deal with theft while traveling (or anytime, tbh).
An rfid wallet is designed to be rfid-blocking, which protects you from a type of electronic pickpocketing called RFID skimming. RFID block travel wallets are a must-have for peace of mind when traveling abroad, as they are designed to make RFID signals hard-to-read remotely and protect cards electronically.
Leather Travel Document Holder
Our favorites are leather travel holders, since leather tends to be most durable; however, you should pick whichever style and material you like best.
Anyway… on to the list!
10 Best Leather Travel Wallets
1. Zip around travel wallet
This travel wallet caught my eye instantly; it’s slim, making it really easy to carry everywhere. It is available in a ton of colors, although I’m sure black is the number one choice to go with everything (and go from office by day to night).
As an added benefit, this travel wallet zips around the outside, so your cards and travel documents aren’t going anywhere! Plus, you can add on extra protection with rfid, too. By Leatherology.
Also love it in red; so stylish!
2. Passport holder travel wallet
These beautiful leather passport holder / travel wallet combos from Portland Leather are awesome. They’re beautifully handcrafted and suitable for womens or mens travel wallet gifts. They can be engraved for only ten bucks. Here’s a few fun sayings we love!
