As with our last blog on Mother’s Day, consider this as a gentle reminder for Father’s Day on Sunday 20th June! We’re here to help you honour that paternal figure in your life by providing you with the perfect gift for fathering Sunday.
It is a well-known fact that men don’t tend to carry much on their person, apart from the essentials; phone, keys…..wallet! Whether it is for a father, grand-father, stepfather or uncle, a wallet is an ageless essential.
With the continuous advances in technology, our society is becoming cashless and people are relying more on card and contactless payments.
Here at SageBrown, we have a developed a range of hand-crafted RFID wallets and card holders, which are perfect and thoughtful gifts for Father’s Day. Whilst being sleek, stylish, and durable, they will keep your father-figure safe from potential scammers.
What is RFID protection and why do you need it?
RFID (Radio Frequency Identification Devices), are devices that contain an extremely thin chip, for example bank cards and passports, that allows the user to wave their device in front of a scanner for payment/identification. The most common use of this is in contactless payments. Whilst this allows for easier and quicker spending and travel, it also allows easier access for scammers to take money or information from you, by simply putting a scanning device close enough to your contactless card.
Whilst in most cases there is a limit as to how much can be spent in a single contactless payment (currently £100 in the UK), it is deeply upsetting and frustrating should it happen. However, you can take simple preventative measures to keep your money and personal details safe from scammers. Something that we offer here at Sage Brown are RFID blocking wallets and card holders. With a simple metal fibre mesh in our product linings, you can be assured that your cards are safe in our products.
Should I buy plain or two-tone, smooth, or textured?
The answer to this question ultimately depends on who you are buying for. For a gentleman with a more refined taste we would recommend a plain, smooth or bridle textured wallet or card holder, in classic colours such as black, brown, or dark tan. These wallets look sleek and stylish, perfectly matching professional work attire. Over time these wallets age with grace and develop a sought-after patina, showing years of love and use.
Our two-tone wallets are more contemporary with a fun pop of colour on the inside of the wallet! These are perfect for a gentleman who likes something a little more quirky and unique, perhaps these are the ideal Father’s Day gift for a young man?
And finally, our crocodile textured wallets handmade from calf leather embossed with a crocodile skin effect.The texture makes for a harder feel to the leather and keeps scratches discreet. These are ideal for anyone who likes to keep their essentials together in one pocket.
