Holiday 2016 wallets — from Kate Spade, Herschel and more — to shop this season


Wallets are fantastic gifts for holiday because everyone needs one, and more than likely there's someone in your circle who's due for an upgrade. This season, we have a preference toward small pouches that fit essentials only. But we also have a few large options for those of you who like your dollars to stretch out.

When wallet shopping, take into account customization options like embossing or colorways. Also look for quality 100% leather that will last for years. If the person you're gifting doesn't wear leather, look into fun vegan options from Japanese label Bao Bao or higher-end label Stella McCartney.

We just finished showing you some of the best skincare kits, and now we've got some amazing wallets. Shop 10 of our favorite options for holiday 2016, below. 

Cuyana Classic Zip Around Wallet, $125


It's always great when one can add a personal touch to something used everyday, and this pebbled wallet from Cuyana is just that. For $10, go the extra mile and get it embossed with the initials of the person receiving the gift.

Spectre & Co Raw Italian Leather Key Wallet, $45

Spectre & Co

This little wallet is for the minimalist. For the person who carries a credit card, their ID and maybe their subway card, it's a great pick. The best part about the wallet is its six gold hooks to hold keys.

Kate Spade New York Rainer Lane Darla Wallet, $78

Kate Spade

As far as we're concerned, metallics are never not in season. This fun blue PVC wallet from Kate Spade is affordable and will smartly organize cash, coins and cards.

Uri Minkoff Levi Wallet, $105

Uri Minkoff

The something that screams "urban jungle" from this snakeskin leather print wallet in a hunter green from Uri Minkoff. Yes, there's a sense of ruggedness with its nautical-type zipper fabric, but its overall look and feel are super chic.

See by Chloé Long Polly Wallet with Flap, $230

The Dreslyn

This cowhide wallet from Chloé's imprint label has a whip stitching trim and magnetic top flap for closure. Sent in a fancy dustbag, we love this option for your bohemian friend.

Aimee Kestenberg Ryder Pony Hair Pouch, $48

Nasty Gal

This small, fully lined pouch from Aimee Kestenberg is great for cards and cash. Made with pony hair in a leopard print, we imagine this baby getting compliments on the regular.

Herschel Supply Hank in Woodland Camo, $39.99

Herschel Supply

This camo-print fabric wallet from Herschel is lined in a smooth tan leather. Its simple utilitarian bi-fold body and multiple card slots are perfect for the no-fuss person in your life.

Cotton On

Not everyone is about that leather life. And for that person, this cute coin purse in a bubblegum pink is an ideal stocking stuffer. Bonus: If you shop now, it's on sale.

Comme des Garçons Small Zip Pouch, $105

Barneys New York

There's something incredibly bossy about this small zip pouch from Commes de Garçons. Made in Spain, its black embossed exterior with goldtone and brasstone hardware make it a timeless gift.

Bao Bao Oyster Wallet, $155

Opening Ceremony

This flapover wallet made of polyurethane and nylon is another great vegan leather option. We adore its signature Bao Bao triangles in bright orange and black.
