In my last post I was saying how maybe getting someone a leather jacket might not be such a great idea, since it’s so personal. But today I’ll tell you about leather items that do make great gifts. There’s a lot of small items for the motorcycle or for yourself made of leather that are great gifts and not too expensive.
A leather purse is one item, that would be for a girl of course! You can find many styles and colors, along with many sizes. While were talking about leather gifts for a woman, another leather gift could be leather ponytail holders. You also can find leather waist pouches, leather backpacks and leather shoulder bags.
For more unisex leather gifts, we have leather cup holders for the motorcycle, leather cigarette cases, leather cell phone holders, leather cigarette lighter cases, lots of different types of leather hats and more. Leather gloves are also a good gift item if you know what style they like. I don’t think leather boots are a good gift, you really need to know the size and style they want.

Often you want it made from the split grain, unless it’s lambskin, sheepskin or maybe goat. The split grain is more softer and flexible than the top grain, which is better for a jacket.
So for a leather shirt the best type of leather is lambskin, sheepskin and goat. But the split grain of cowhide, buffalo and pigskin can also be used, however the lambskin will be the softest. Most leather shirts button up in front, but some have snap buttons, and some you put on like a sweater with just a short top zipper. Often they have breast pockets that button or snap shut.
