Why is the Ekster smart wallet the perfect Christmas gift for your absent-minded loved one? Read on to find out…

Parliament wallet styling

Butter-soft leather, elegant embossing and beautiful stitching are just a few of the details that make the Parliament a modern design classic. Available in seven timeless shades including Classic Brown, Juniper Green and Blush Beige, the wallet appeals to both men and women.

The bi-fold design retains the sleek aesthetic of the original Senate wallet, with its signature cash band and builds upon it with two additional card pockets, perfect for a gift card or driver’s licence.

At the flick of a trigger, your cards fan out James Bond-style, avoiding the faff and fumble of a traditional bulky purse. From a mum of a toddler’s perspective, it also means I can easily pay one-handed, whilst juggling a wriggling toddler. 

The card holder is crafted out of coated aluminium, equipped with RFID protection and a quick-release trigger, all making the wallet jam and scam-proof. 

Bonus point: If you happen to own a Storksak Elizabeth bag in tan leather, the Blush Beige shade also tones well with the toffee coloured lining – a happy accident, but a bonus point nonetheless! 

Chipolo tracker details

How many times have you rifled frantically through a chaotic handbag looking for your purse just before you need to leave the house or even had that stomach-lurching moment of panic when you’re in line to pay and realise you haven’t got your purse?

Ekster has you covered with their wafer-thin Bluetooth Chipolo tracker, officially the slimmest on the market measuring at 2.28mm. It’s also solar-powered, beating other leading brands which rely on battery replacements.

As if this isn’t impressive enough, the GPS tracker is compatible with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa, so you can speak a command into your phone to locate your tracker on a map the minute you realise your wallet’s missing!

Final thoughts

It’s pretty obvious that I’m impressed with this wallet – it’s stylish, practical, easy to use and the Chipolo app is really simple to set up. I’m a scatterbrain and I did mislay my wallet last week, so I was relieved and impressed that it was quick and easy to find using the tracker.

Ekster did gift my wallet, but I only give balanced, honest reviews and would never recommend something unless I am actually impressed by it. 

The only niggle I have about the wallet is the lack of space for coins – I always need change for car parking. I think Ekster could overcome this easily though, by adding a beautiful coin pouch to their growing collection of stylish leather goods. I’d also be very interested Ekster’s take on a small leather bound pocket diary too, if anyone in the design team is interested?
