Choosing a suitable gift for someone and then presenting it to them in a suitable way is definitely much more difficult than one expects.
It is not enough to know the man, in order to try to guess what he wants, but you also have to take into account a whole lot of superstitions, which exist even today.
Giving someone a wallet as a gift may seem like a good idea, especially considering how practical this gift is, but when handing over the wallet, you should not forget one important thing.
The wallet is always given as a gift with a coin in it. That way the owner of the wallet will always have money in it.
If you forget to put a coin in it, you condemn the holder of the purse to poverty and destitution.
