If you’re looking for a special gift for the man in your life, have you thought about checking out some of the fabulous personalized toiletry bags? Not only are they a very thoughtful and useful gift which he will be thrilled to receive, they also serve as a lovely reminder of you whenever he is away whether on business or on pleasure.
There are plenty of styles and types to choose from to suit his style and your pocket and you can have it personalized with the message of your choice. Whether you choose initials, real names, pet names or something else – that’s completely up to you.
There are lots of different types of toiletry bags for men available these days which mean that the only problem you’ll have is deciding which one to choose. With such a vast range of colors, styles, sizes and materials it can be difficult to know where to start.
Leather has been used to makes accessories and clothes for centuries, even before the emergence of fashion as we know it. Just about every era and every culture has used leather in some form in their history, and for many very good reasons.
- Durability – you’ll be hard pushed to find a more durable material than leather for your dopp kit, particularly if you choose high quality, top grade leather (and why wouldn’t you)? Top quality leather is treated to make it resistant and durable which means that it can last and look good for many years to come.
- Timelessness – we’ve already spoken a little about the use of leather through the ages which proves one more thing, leather has a timeless quality and is always in style. It doesn’t need to be fashionable, it is beyond fashion – it is a truly timeless fabric.
- Style – the elegance of good quality leather whether in its natural color or dyed can add elegance to any item. A mens leather dopp kit is a gift which can last forever. Top quality leather won’t crack or peel and any personalized message you choose to embellish it with will last forever too.
- Flexibility – leather is tough and it is virtually unbreakable but it is also extremely flexible, it actually becomes more flexible the more it is used while always staying in shape.
- Smell – this may seem a little bit strange but there’s nothing like the smell of leather to ooze style and class. Some synthetic toiletry bags have a rather peculiar smell which can permeate into the rest of your luggage.
Of course, there are other types of dopp kit which can also make a terrific personalized gift for that special man in your life.
Canvas Dopp Kit
So what does it take to create the perfect dopp kit? Well, it has to be simple, tough, durable and portable. We’ve already looked at the many benefits of choosing leather, but are there any alternatives? As a matter of fact there is – canvas is also a great material for toiletry bags.
Canvas bags are tough and durable and many people prefer to choose this type of dopp kit because they are less afraid of getting them wet. Okay, so top quality leather can be treated to make it waterproof (almost) and although canvas is not particularly waterproof it seems less of a sin if it gets a good soaking.
Water will not harm the canvas and many toiletry bags have a waterproof lining anyhow which protects the contents. If your canvas bag takes a shower with you it won’t matter at all – after a little while it will dry out and be as good as new.
