There’s no arguing the necessity of the valet tray, coin tray, catchall, or whatever else you want to call it. The nightstand, desk or front door essential is perfect for smartphones, keys, EDC gear and even loose change. You could get by with a bowl or something from a big box discount store, but there are plenty of cooler options when it comes to the best valet tray.

Boshiho-Cork-Valet-Tray

Boshiho Cork Valet Tray

There are plenty of single piece, travel catchall options that go from flat to functional tray with a few folds and some snaps. We like Boshiko’s option because it’s made with cork instead of the more traditional leather. In addition to being soft, flexible, durable and eco-friendly, it’s vegan and vegetarian friendly because of its lack of animal products.

Modko-Desktop-Stand-and-Catchall

Modko Desktop Stand and Catchall

It might look like a mod ashtray you’d find in a vintage shop, but it’s actually a five compartment catchall that also doubles as a phone stand. You’re not going to be able to fit pockets full of knives, notebooks and pens, but coins and keys fit easily inside with a wallet on top in back. And it comes in four different colors.

Enrico-Root-Wood-Three-Section-Tray

Enrico Root Wood Three Section Tray

Unlike other wood tray options on the market, the Enrico Root Wood Three Section Tray uses reclaimed fir stumps that keep their natural shape rather than being processed into a design. Each organic piece is hand-carved by skilled artisans, which means no two are exactly alike and dimensions are approximate. It does say that it’s an appetizer tray, but we’re not limited by labels. Or, if you’re so inclined, mix and match. Drop your EDC and pick up a few slices of cheese.

Owen-Fred-Tan-Leather-Concrete-Valet

Owen & Fred Tan Leather Concrete Valet

Perfect for the home with reclaimed wood and gas pipe furniture, Owen & Fred made a valet tray that combines the best in industrial building supply (concrete) with heritage material (Wickett & Craig tan bridle leather). There’s enough contrast between the concrete and the leather in the piece itself, but it will look even better sitting on top of something old and weathered.
