Gift Guide: Passport Covers & Cases For International Travelers


The holiday shopping season is among us, which means it’s time to start thinking gifts. Each week I’ll be posting a set of  gift ideas with the topics of travel, grooming, tech and winter fashion that’ll work for friends, family or even to pickup for yourself (or to add to your wish list). This week is all about international travelers and their passports.

A passport cover adds a stylish personality to the basic passport, while also adding extra sleeves for cash or credit cards. For multi country journeys and big shoppers, a case is the perfect organizer for several tickets, receipts for tax refunds (if the city you’re visiting offers it when you leave) and to hold all your euros, pounds or pesos. See our top five this season below:

Kenneth Cole – Paglietta Leather Travel Case


The textured midnight blue leather travel case from Kenneth Cole can hold 10 cards in their own slots, includes a zipper pocket on its left side and bill compartment on the other, and has a pen loop so the user always have a pen or pencil handy ($90, Kenneth Cole).

WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie – Pearson Leather Passport Cover


From an industry favorite, this WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie cover has gone through a texturizing process to give it the aspect of a pheasant’s skin with a forest green exterior and interior. ($145, The Corner)

Tumi – Monaco Zip-Around Travel Wallet


Made from textured full-grain leather, the black sleek Monaco travel wallet from Tumi keeps all your travel documents, business cards, receipts, credit cards and cash and coins in order with its three open compartments and a zip-close pocket. ($225, Tumi)

Coach – Lizard Passport Holder


Imported from Italy, this genuine lizard skin cover from Coach has been hand-aligned for perfect symmetry. Lined with a combo of calfskin and burnished cowhide, the cover offers five card slots. ($598, Coach)

Smythson – Panama Collection Travel Wallet


From the British luxury goods brand Smythson, and its  lightweight and modern Panama Collection, the crossgrain calf leather Nile Blue travel wallet stands out for its vibrant color. It comes with a removable passport cover that can be used on its own. ($670, Smythson)
