Vintage Leather Dopp Kit Like My Dad’s

Vintage Leather Dopp Kit Like My Dad's

This is one of my Father’s Day gift ideas. It’s a Dopp Kit. Don’t know what that is? It’s a small toilet bag, best made of leather, used for storing mens grooming tools for travel. It came into popularity during World War II when they were issued to our GIs. I remember my dad’s clearly… I can still smell the wonderful mix of leather, deodorant, shaving cream and cologne it gave off. I believe the English call them “sponge bags”? Giving one to a teenage boy was a right of passage once upon a time. If the dad in your life wasn’t given one, there’s no time like the present. You’ll notice, as with almost all of my Father’s Day recommendations, I’m suggesting leather.
