If you are looking for a unique gift , be check out TerraCycle. TerraCycle upcycles and recycles traditionally non-recycable waste (including drink pouches, chip bags, tooth brushes and many more) into a large variety of consumer products. I was offered an Upcycled Mail Sack Pouch to review in exchange for my honest opinion. This opportunity just tickled my funny bone as my hubby is a letter carrier.
When I was first offered this pouch, I was informed that it was a coin purse, and was pleasantly surprised at the size of it. It really has enough room for a hand full of coins, several credit cards, and even some cash. The canvas is very heavy duty, and I really like the weathered and rugged look of the pouch. If you are looking to travel light, the pouch fits great in the back of jean pockets. I had it filled with a couple credit cards, some cash, ID, lip balm, and single dose pain killers. It had everything I needed for a day of running around our local theme park, without having to tow around a bag, and still had room leftover to put in several receipts.
The zipper is easy to open and close, and the stitching has held up great with the day trips that I have transferred everything over so I did not have to haul my purse around. I usually have the pouch in my purse so I can throw coins into it while I'm out shopping, and it holds a lot of coins. The pouch is pretty heavy by the time I get around to taking the coins out.
