Wallet Bottle Opener

The starting-out price for this stocking stuffer for men is not bad at $14.95, but it you want engraving -- which to me would kind of be the point -- the price does go up by another $9.95, and then of course there's shipping. Which moves this well into the category of "luxury" stocking stuffer. But it can make a unique and lasting gift tailored to an individual. What is it? A bottle opener that can be carried in the wallet like a credit card, but that can also be personalized.

What to engrave? The example shown gives important dates for the forgetful man to remember, but one reviewer on the website noted that she gave one to her son and one to his college roommate, with their college and year engraved on it. I think that's a terrific idea! You could also have a meaningful quote engraved, or make is a message from your kids to their father or grandfather.

Here are some product particulars:

  • It measures 3 3/8 x 2 1/8 inches
  • It's made of stainless steel
  • It can be engraved with up to 5 lines, 20 characters each line. The size of the letters depends on how much you have engraved -- more characters will result in smaller engraving

Great idea for Father's Day, which always manages to sneak up on me....
