Give him a European style wallet

Instead of getting him a standard billfold, buy him a European style wallet with a coin pocket and built-in money clip.  If you’re not familiar with European wallets, they are taller than an American and Canadian sized wallet because some of the Euro bills are taller than American bills. For example, a 50 Euro bill is 77 mm high, and the 100 Euro bill is 82 mm, while American bills are only 66 mm’s high. European wallets have to accommodate for the larger bill sizes. The coin purse is convenient too carry spare change but also to carry the one and two euro coin pieces.

Give him French socks
