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.

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.
