Leather Mini Journals - a Great Gift Idea for Any Businessman

Leather Mini Journal with Pen - Best Journal for Business Owners 

This mini leather journal is made of natural and durable Milwaukee leather.

It has a pen slot and a paper insert, and it is a perfect fit for extra small Moleskine volant notebooks. 


Buyer's Guide

This handmade mini journal is small enough to fit in pockets and small bag compartments. It is available on olpr.'s website in four colors: black, natural, chestnut, and blue. 

The mini leather journal with a pen holder is one of those perfect gifts for business owners. It is an excellent gift for business owners who prefer writing things (thoughts, inspirations, business ideas, etc.) down over typing into a computer. 

The leather used in making this mini journal comes from the upper part of the cowhide; this part has scratches, markings, etc., from the cow. So, you may notice that the leather has some imperfections, but these will make the journal a beautiful patina as time goes on. 

As stated earlier, you can customize this mini journal. olpr. offers customization of this journal in two ways: debossing and engraving. 

You may choose to deboss the initials or name of your business owner friend. Or you may decide to engrave images or letters on the mini journal to customize this unique gift. 

Pros and Cons 

There are many pros to this Milwaukee leather mini journal with pen, which is why it is highly recommended as a business-warming gift. One of the pros of this mini leather journal is that it is handmade with durable, natural cowhide. The unspoken part of this is that it will last for years, unlike products made with fake leather. 

Another benefit attached to this product is that the cover is refillable. Thus, if/when the extra small moleskin volant notebook it contains is exhausted, the business owner can buy another notebook. All the person needs to do is replace the old notebook with the new one in the journal cover. 

olpr. proffers the option of personalizing most of its products, and the mini leather journal (with a pen) is not exempt. The choice of personalized gifts is a pro because it makes your gift even more thoughtful to your friend who may be a new business owner or a small business owner. 

This product might be considered a con because the leather is handmade, so its color may be a bit different from the pictured product. This difference is because dye affects the hides of leather in different ways.

Traditional Leather Padfolio - Perfect Gift for New Business Owners

Milwaukee Leather Padfolio - Best Traditional Padfolio

The Milwaukee leather traditional padfolio includes one paper insert and a refill in the form of an Amazon Basics notepad. 

Also, you may choose to customize the gift by engraving or debossing the initials or names of your friend. 

Like all of olpr.'s products, the product is handmade with the finest and richest leather. You should buy this as a "congratulations" gift for a new business opening. The traditional leather padfolio is available in three colors: black, natural, and chestnut.

Pros and Cons

The traditional padfolio available on olpr.'s store is refillable; if/when the Amazon Basics notepad is completely used, you can replace it with a new one. olpr. offers a refill of the Amazon Basics notepad with your purchase. 

This product is stitched by hand, so you can rest assured that the stitching is durable and of the highest quality. Also, the Milwaukee leather traditional padfolio is available in two sizes: 5" x 8" (13 x 20 cm) and 8.5" x 11.75" (22 x 30 cm).

Best Professional Leather Padfolio

Milwaukee Leather Padfolio - Best Professional Padfolio 

The professional leather padfolio is a modern twist on a classic design, with the design in question being the traditional leather padfolio. It is an excellent organizer with slots for cards, pens, and a classic Moleskine A4 journal. 

You should consider buying this padfolio for people starting a business. It is excellent for organization and looks good with its hand-stitched edges. The Milwaukee leather professional padfolio is available on olpr.'s website in three colors: chestnut, natural, and black.

Buyer's Guide 

The Milwaukee leather professional padfolio differs from the traditional leather padfolio in several ways, and the differences will be highlighted. 

Unlike the traditional leather padfolio, which has a single elastic loop for a pen, the Milwaukee leather professional padfolio has three elastic loops to hold pens. 

Also, the professional padfolio uses a different refill from the traditional padfolio; where the traditional padfolio uses Amazon Basics notepads, its professional counterpart uses Classic Moleskine A4. 

The padfolio is made of pig leather to make switching out the refill an easier task. Pig leather is softer and more flexible than cow leather. The professional padfolio has slots and pockets for personal items such as cards, iPhones, and iPads.

Pros and Cons 

One of the most significant pros of this product is that it is made from natural leather rather than faux leather. Because of this, and with the assurance of quality workmanship from olpr., you can be sure that the professional padfolio will last for a long time. 

Another point in favor of this padfolio is the option to customize it by engraving or debossing names/initials or a logo.

Pros and Cons

This desk pad may work as a mousepad if it is wide or long enough to hold a mouse, among other things. Another pro is that the leather desk pad is waterproof, so spills will not affect the desk underneath. 

Something that may be considered a con by some people is that you olpr. does not offer the option to customize or personalize the desk pad. This means there are no options to engrave or deboss names, logos, or initials of the person who will receive the gift.
