Personalized Father’s Day Gift Ideas

Still looking for a personalized Father’s Day gift idea? Well, you’re in the right place because I make some really great ones. Dads are awesome, and I’m not just saying that because I’m a dad. I thought that way before I became a father. So do him a solid and buy him something of quality, something that will last, and something he will use and love. Because he puts up with you, and he deserves a cool gift that shows he taught you well.  

My shop is full of dad-friendly presents, like the Tagsmith Folding Leather Business Card Holder (as seen in the pic below). As with all of my items, I use the highest quality full grain American tanned leather. Two interior pockets keep his cards handy. This card case can also be used as a small wallet. Each pocket can hold two credit cards, making it a nice streamlined choice for the man who only carries his essentials.

For the maximalist dad who needs space to securely hold his cards and cash, my Classic Five Pocket Wallet is a strong choice. One large pocket holds bills, while 4 interior pockets keep his cards at the ready. The edges are burnished for a monochromatic, finished look. Constructed for durability, this wallet is a workhorse, sure to be by his side for years to come.  

Sometimes, a personalized key fob is the perfect thoughtful gift. This perpetual customer favorite is crafted from full grain leather and substantial nickel-plated hardware. Available with 1, 2, or 3 initials, it’s a subtle, classic way for Dad to keep tabs on his keys.

If these items aren’t exactly what you think Dad will dig, check out my shop for other contenders. Everything I make can be personalized, so it’s easy to give a gift that feels right.

PS Whatever you do don’t buy him a plastic fish to hang on the wall that sings a Kenny Loggins song when you push the button. He doesn’t want that. Sure. he’ll act like it’s the best thing he’s ever seen because he loves you. But, no.

Personalized Leather Anniversary Date Keychain for Him or Her

 Good news! I’ve finally added my personalized anniversary date keychain to my website. I’ve been selling it on Etsy for a few years and people love it, but since it’s personalized with a few possible options, I needed to find a webmaster to make a custom web page for it. People often buy it as a gift to give a loved one to celebrate an anniversary or date a couple first met. It’s also a great long distance relationship gift idea. You can get a two-sided fob with a date on one side and a heart, ampersand or plus symbol separating two initials on the other. You can also go with just one side with date or initials on it.

EDC Pocket Dump Minimalist Wallet

EDC pocket dumps are awesome, and they’re even more awesome when something I’ve made is included in the photo. This picture was taken by a customer of mine whose every day carry for the last four years has included one of my natural veg-tan leather minimalist wallets. It’s cool to see how each individual piece of leather ages. They all age so differently, depending on environment, how it’s handled, if it’s gotten wet, if it’s been conditioned, exposed to sunlight, etc. This wallet is developing some really nice character and patina. I know it’s one of my older pieces because it has my old maker’s mark on it. The one I use now is more subdued. It is a smaller type and just reads “Tagsmith” without the “Made in USA”. All my items are still handcrafted in the USA by me from American tanned leather, of course. The minimalist is available in natural veg-tan, black English bridle leather and dark brown English bridle leather. You can have this wallet personalized with up to three initials, as well. Click this link to order your own minimalist wallet. If you post a pic of a Tagsmith item on Instagram, make sure to use the hashtag #tagsmithoriginals so I can check it out. I look forward to seeing your photos.

New Men’s Wallet Design

Wallets for Men Handcrafted by Tagsmith

Men's Leather Wallets Handcrafted by Tagsmith

I’m happy to announce that I’ve added a new men’s credit card wallet to my line. It’s my take on the classic billfold wallet that originated in the 1960s, when people started carrying multiple credit cards. I made one of these for myself about six years ago, and it’s the perfect wallet for me. I’m offering it in dark brown bridle leather or black bridle leather with either matching or red stich. I’m using my favorite American tanned leather by Wickett & Craig of America. You have the choice of four credit card pockets and one currency pocket or six credit card pockets and one currency pocket.

Business Card Holder VS Bifold Wallet

Business card holder & bifold wallet

Sometimes I get emails from customers asking what the difference is between the Tagsmith folding business card holder and bifold walllet. They are the same, except the business card holder is smaller. Each pocket in the business card holder accommodates around 15 standard size 3.5” x 2” business cards. The bifold wallet holds around 10 credit cards per side. Click the links below to go to each item's page:

Custom Everyday Carry Pocket Size Leather Notebook Covers

Everyday Carry Pocket Size Leather Notebook Covers

Here’s a couple of pocket size leather covers for small reporter-style notebooks I made for a customer: one opens like a book, the other opens vertically. They’re really perfect for everyday carry. I’m considering adding the Rhodia cover to my line. I really like how the pocket on the inside came out.

Primer Magazines Summer Get Up: T-Shirt and Shorts Kind of Day

Thanks to Primer Magazine for showcasing my handmade leather bifold wallet in their T-shirt and Shorts Kind of Day feature. If you’re not familiar with Primer Magazine, you should check it out. It's an online men’s lifestyle magazine aimed at 20-something post-college guys, but men of all ages can get a lot out of their articles. Besides covering men’s style and fashion, they also cover everything you need to know about being a grown-up, like career, relationships and finances.
