When a woman changes handbags the first thing she does is grab the wallet out of the first one and put it in the second. It’s important that a wallet be roomy, compact, versatile and organized. Fortunately there are many types of women’s wallets and each woman can choose the ones that will work best for her and her lifestyle. Or if you’re thinking about a gift for your mom, sister, significant other or even a friend, consider their personality before making your selection.
Credit Card Wallet: Some women don’t like to carry cash or a checkbook. They buy everything using credit cards. All they need is someplace to keep the cards safe and organized. Or some women find it practical to have one wallet for cards and a separate one for cash and/or a checkbook. She can carry them both in a purse or just take one depending on the occasion.
Checkbook Wallets: While most of the world has become increasingly card-centered, some women still need to have a checkbook handy. The best way to carry a checkbook is in a checkbook wallet. A good one will have a compartment where the checkbook will be protected as well as slots for credit cards and a drivers license. There might also be a space for a pen as well so you don’t have to rummage around or ask to borrow one when it’s time to write a check.
Fabric Wallets: A fabric wallet is fun. You can get them in all sorts of colors and patterns. They can coordinate with your purse, your outfit, or your mood. Fabric wallets tend not to last as long as old fashioned leather wallets but some people don’t want things to last forever. While some women will carry the same wallet for years, others enjoy a change. Moving the credit cards and ID’s to a new wallet might seem like a reasonable thing to do on birthdays, holidays and major sale days. It can be a pleasure if the destination is an exciting new wallet in the latest designer fabric.
Travel Wallets: A travel wallet has a lot of work to do. A woman who travels internationally is going to need her passport, plane tickets and boarding passes within easy reach. A good travel wallet will provide designated spaces for each of these as well as for a drivers license and credit cards. A nice touch is two or more separate compartments for different currencies.
Clutch Wallets: A pretty clutch wallet can carry all the essentials. It can be tucked into a purse during the day and can be used as a clutch purse for an evening on the town. A clutch wallet is designed to be seen.
Coin Wallets: Coins can add immeasurably to the clutter in purses and pocket. Unless coins are kept someplace secure they have an unfortunate tendency to fall out of things and scatter and roll around. A coin wallet with a good snap enclosure that coins can’t slip past is good. A zipper is even better.
A wallet is not just a practical essential – it is often seen as a fashion accessory. There are so many types of women’s wallets so each woman can find one that is large enough or small enough, with more cash or card space, made of leather or fabric. Choose the one that’s right for you. Or buy one as a gift for someone special.
