Men deserve to feel special too!

A lot of attention goes to finding gifts for women for Mother’s Day, birthdays, Christmas, and Valentine’s Day. Don’t you think that the men in our lives deserve to feel just as special with gifts that we put time, effort and energy into shopping for? I say…YES!


It’s time we put those men in our lives at the top of our shopping list, and give them things that they will cherish and love!



Enter the gift of all gifts…

I had the opportunity and privilege of receiving an Ekster Smart Wallet for my husband. If you haven’t heard of a smart wallet, don’t worry! I hadn’t heard of a smart wallet before this, but it is amazing!


The Ekster Smart Wallet is an innovative wallet that allows you to track your wallet to always know exactly where it is. Like many men, my husband is ALWAYS looking for where he placed his wallet in the mornings for work and even on the weekends when we’re heading out.  Well, now that he has the Ekster Smart Wallet, he no longer has to search for it…he simply has to go to the app, and viola, he finds his wallet!


Ekster Modular Bifold Smart Wallet


The wallet

Ekster smart wallets come in a variety of styles. My husband is a bifold wallet user, so we chose the Ekster Modular Bifold Smart Wallet. It comes in Caramel, Brown or Black to fit the needs of the user. It can store up to around twelve cards, stores around ten bills, has a coin compartment in the top of the cardholder, and contains a removable magnetic cardholder.

The removable magnetic cardholder is great for when you just need a few cards and say your driver’s license, perhaps for a night out on the town or if you’re vacationing, when you may not want to take your entire wallet around with you.

The wallet itself is made of environmentally certified leather and is stylish and oh so versatile!


The tracker card

The tracker is a card that is placed into the wallet. It contains RFID blocking technology, and is paired with solar-powered tracking technology. The ultra-slim tracker card makes your wallet unlosable, and the two-way ringing lets you call your wallet from your phone or vise-versa!

Simply download the app, set up your tracker card and you’re all set!


The verdict

After using the Ekster Smart Wallet for over a month, my husband is a VERY happy camper! He’s always excited to show off his new wallet, and show people how he can ring the wallet from his phone and the phone too! The removable cardholder has come in handy quite often, as he uses that mostly while at work instead of taking the entire wallet with him while doing deliveries. This is definitely a must have for any special man in your life for any occasion…Valentine’s Day, Father’s Day, Graduation or a birthday!

The most important thing to take from this is to take time in shopping for a great gift for all the men in your life.

  2. Great gift ideas for men! I am thinking I need to go for the wireless headphones for my husband!
