The Decadent Minimalist DM1 is an example of simplicity at its finest. It's CNC-machined from a single piece of metal to carry your essential cards in a slim, lightweight package without screws, straps, and other moving parts that can jam or break. And with a new money clip accessory, it's got you covered if you carry cash, too. No matter what your cash and card situation, you'll probably find a DM1 wallet that's a perfect fit for your EDC. Decadent Minimalist wallets can even be engraved to add that extra touch of personalization to your kit, or to make it an extra special gift.

These are great gift Ideas for Christmas! Here is another Gift Idea I want to add, You can also Give a Gift to someone of a tech software like Windows,MSoffice or VPN on Christmas, Which can be so useful for a gift receiver, Specially VPN which enhance the internet security and also make you able to access the restricted content from all over the world. Also its easy to get a VPN on Christmas season as many VPNs offers great deals, Like PureVPN is offering 88% discount on its 5 year 5 years subscription so it will cost only 79$ instead 578$
