Why not gift one to yourself, too?

There are a few essential criteria points that make for a perfect Christmas gift. First, it has to be something that the receiver won’t buy for herself—things that are not necessarily frivolous, but are very close to crossing that border. Next, it needs to feel a little special and out-of-the-ordinary, something that speaks to her personal style. And finally, it has to be something that she can actually use—a gift with practical value so it doesn’t end up collecting dust (or worse, regifted!) We found the golden gift that checks off all of these boxes: SLG or “small leather goods.” 

Small Leather Goods are wallets, cardholders, and other little pouches made with…well, leather. A lot of brands have been coming out with them for the past few years, so you can find a good range of styles that are sure to fit your budget. Check out our top picks, below!


7 small leather goods to gift your loved ones this Christmas:

1. Jacquemus Le Pitchou

It would’ve been a sin to create an SLG Gift Guide without Jacquemus, a.k.a. the brand that fortified the already building craze for microscopic bags. Though the Le Pitchou is barely a bag, it makes for a really stylish alternative to a regular coin purse. Fashion lovers like Laetitia Blume and David Guison have taken to using this as more of a necklace to cheekily accessorize their looks.

2. JW Pei Gabbi Super Mini Bag  

Another unexpected choice is JW Pei’s Gabbi Super Mini Bag. It’s one of this up-and-coming contemporary brand’s signature shapes, but done in a miniature size complete with a string. We’re not exactly sure what can fit inside this, but we’re definite that it’s going to give any outfit a quirky touch.

3. COS Leather Phone Pouch 

We all have that one friend who doesn’t like bringing a purse around. The COS Leather Phone Pouch would be perfect for her. It’s enough to fit just the essentials while looking super stylish, too. Just imagine an all-white look with a fresh touch of buttery yellow. It comes with a drawstring closure for when you're not using it for your phone and want to keep your other items secure.

4. Mango Croc-Effect Wallet

Soft curves are here to stay and we love seeing it on SLGs. This Mango wallet is in the ever-trendy half-moon shape, and is super practical because of its multiple card slots and zip closing. It’s just the hint of glamour you need for an everyday look with its rich brown color, croc-effect texture, and gold hardware.

5. Longchamp Cavalcade Wallet on Chain S Black 

A two-in-one gift is always a good idea. This chic Longchamp beauty is practical enough to be a wallet and pretty enough to be worn as a purse. It comes with a detachable chain that you can put on and off as you please.

6. Charles and Keith Two-Tone Multi Slot Card Holder 

Here’s a pick for your friend who loves a classic with a twist! This card holder is as minimalist as it can be, but is accented with a nice touch of olive green. It’s fun while staying super chic.

7. Kate Spade New York Spencer Wallet in Festive Pink 

This Kate Spade New York Spencer Wallet is for the girl who’s the life of the party. It’s full of personality with its shiny croc-effect texture and an eye-catching shade of hot pink. As decorative as it is, this wallet surprisingly wins points for practicality—it has a zip pouch, multiple card slots, a clear ID pocket, and a button closure.
