Mini handbags are EVERYTHING. For people with children, nothing says ‘carry your own sh*t’ like a teeny tiny handbag. But with little bags comes huge responsibility. You have to cull, darling. Yes, some items are non-negotiable — you need your phone. You need some sort of mini skincare tube, whether it’s hand lotion, lip balm, or an itty bitty nail file. And you need your ID and credit cards.
This comes with its own set of issues: your full-sized wallet with ten loyalty cards, an elastic hair tie, that parking ticket you’re totally going to pay, and an expired library card that won’t fit in your chic, new mini-handbag accessory. This is where these fun cardholders come into play. They’re functional without sacrificing one iota of style.
Keep scrolling to discover the small wallets for women that will slip into any tiny handbag (with room leftover for any more essentials you need to carry).
House Of Want We Swipe Beaded Cardholder
When you have to make a Target run at 9 p.m. and make it to the club by 10:30, this fun, beaded cardholder brings the sparkle. This would be fun to slide into a sleek black mini bag. Its glittery shine will bring an unexpected pop to your look.
Boyy Buckle Strap Zipped Cardholder
Bring an effortless, downtown vibe to your look with this cardholder by Boyy. I love how the strap is removable so you can use the cardholder as a teeny clutch.
Marc Jacobs Metallic Croc-Embossed Cardholder
Say what you will about the Marc Jacobs brand, but it knows how to bring the drama. While some labels would choose either a metallic or crocodile embossment, this cardholder from Marc Jacobs says “both.”
Cult Gaia Aleta Zip Card Case
Keep it chic and simple with this zip card case from Aleta. I would pair this with a deep burgundy handbag and tortoise shell sunglasses.
Kenzo Tiger Embroidered Cardholder
Not every act of rebellion needs to be delivered with a shout. Sometimes, it can be a whisper. This Kenzo cardholder has a subtle black tiger design that is like a little surprise, just for you.
Ganni Keychain Cardholder
I love this Ganni cardholder — it looks like a cartoon, and I mean that as the highest compliment.
Saint Laurent Zip Fragments YSL Monogram Pouch Card Case
I would keep my Smoothie King punch card in this Saint Laurent card case. That’s not a joke. It’s the perfect size.
SHOP AT NEIMAN MARCUS – $375.00
GG Marmont Keychain Wallet
Lush, expensive, and sleek, this tiny Gucci wallet makes no apologies for being a luxury item.
Tory Burch Perry Color-Block Top-Zip Card Case
If Tory Burch’s card case were a character on Sex And The City — excuse me, And Just Like That — it would be Charlotte. Preppy, traditional, and pretty, but stronger than you think.
Prada Logo Embossed Cardholder
Baby blue leather goods are always special. They’re like the fashion version of a pastel unicorn, and Prada’s cardholder is no exception.
Balenciaga Allover Logo Print Cardholder
Slightly irreverent, yet always in style, this Balenciaga cardholder is meant for tiny handbags or even the back pocket of your jeans.
Pink Versace La Medusa Card Case
The thing to know about Versace’s card case is that it’s not here to make you feel good. It’s here to make whoever’s wearing it (or in this case, carrying it) feel good. There’s a difference.

Stella McCartney Falabella Cardholder
This cardholder by Stella McCartney is a study in contrasts: sleek, tough, chic, rough. And luxe. You can’t forget luxe.

Alexander McQueen Crocodile-Embossed Leather Envelope Card Case
The evolution of the Alexander McQueen brand is an exercise in a company finding its happy place. Back in the day, McQueen made his mark by having actual wolves as part of his runway shows, and now…his brand is worn by literal royalty. Quite an impressive feat. I love how the brand still kisses its rock and roll past while thoroughly embracing its new, lush image, as evidenced by this leather card case.
Fendi FF Vertigo Cardholder
You’ve gotta hand it to this Fendi cardholder…it takes the penchant for logos and turns it slightly, twisting the Fendi trademark to be a bit more edgy and modern.
Tory Burch Eleanor Card Case
The contradiction of natural leather and shiny brass materials make this card case something special.
Louis Vuitton Cles Monogram Keychain Pouch
The LV monogram is the ultimate status symbol. Why not get it on a keychain pouch?
Loewe Anagram Leather And Canvas Cardholder
The combination of canvas and leather is great in this Loewe cardholder. I especially love the red colorway.

Balenciaga Logo Polka-Dot Print Zip Card Case
When I say I love this Balenciaga card case, I don’t mean that in a ‘it’s a very nice accessory’ way. I mean, I have a deep soulful connection with this tiny piece of heaven. One that took my breath away when I first saw it pop up on my screen. This little beauty had better be in stock when I circle back to buy this, because if one of you angels happens to snag the last one, I will have to impale myself with my own stiletto. And that will be on you.
