The holidays are just around the corner and I want you gentlemen to be locked and loaded with everyday carry gift ideas for yourself and the family. I’ve pulled together some of my favorite everyday carry essentials here for you guys to choose from. You can shop the full collection or pick and choose your favorites by following any of the links throughout this article!

The brand new Huckberry x Timex “Cola” Sport Watch (Limited Edition) ($189) just dropped and this is a watch that will sell out very fast because it’s that damn good. This is a classic everyday style you can wear with just about anything in your wardrobe. This design was inspired by the legendary military-inspired designs of the 1970s and 1980s. Starting with a blank canvas, Huckberry drew on those styles from the 70s and 80s and went with a military-inspired ‘crosshair’ dial with polished and faceted 6, 9, and 12 markers. This watch is finished with a woven stainless steel bracelet and a functional aluminum timing bezel, the HB x Timex “Cola” Sport Watch is everything you could want in a watch.

The Dr. Marten’s Maleke Men’s Twill Canvas Casual Boots are a STEAL for only $80. This is a perfect everyday boot that you can dress up or down with jeans or chinos. They feature a padded collar, grooved sides, Doc’s iconic visible stitching, and an air-cushioned sole. Don’t sleep on these!

The Faherty Brand Legend Woven Shirt in Red Tahoe Check ($148) is quite literally the perfect shirt for this time of year. The classic Red Check design cannot be topped during the holidays and this blend of 53% Rayon, 46% Polyester, and 1% Spandex is unrivaled in comfort and performance. You don’t want a shirt that’s only good in November and December, this is about to become your new favorite shirt all year long. It also comes in a Cream Tahoe Check color you can check out.

You can pair that shirt with the Flint and Tinder 365 Pants in Slate ($98). These pants are available in 14 different colors as well as Slim, Straight, and Tapered cuts. They are a blend of 98% cotton and 2% spandex for a little added comfortable stretch. The blended 8oz fabric makes them perfect for year-round wear.

Next up we have the Leatherman Skeletool Multi-Tool which is currently on sale for $47 instead of the usual $65 price tag. Here we see it in Stainless Steel but you can choose from a few colors AND customize it if you want. This badass tool includes Needlenose Pliers, Regular Pliers, Hard-Wire Cutters, Wire Cutters, 420HC Blade Combo Knife, Carabiner/Bottle Opener, and a Large Bit Driver. I’ve been a brand loyalist with Leatherman since my parents gave me my first Leatherman back in the Cub Scouts. They are built to last a lifetime if you treat them right and I wouldn’t trust any other brand to make me a multi-tool. Also, you cannot beat that price. This is a true multi-tool and one you can carry in conjunction with a knife because it provides so much value.

‘Tis the season to be flasking, am I right? I’ve been taking the Outback Steakhouse approach to life over the past few months of ‘no rules, just right’ and going with whatever feels good on any given day and some days that means sipping a spirit with my lunch. I’m inviting you gentlemen to join me in living Flask Life with these leather and silicone flasks from Ragproper. Pictured here is 240ml Ragproper Black Silicone + Glass Flask but they’re also sold in brown leather and 100ml sizes if you’d prefer.

The all-new Flint and Tinder Leather Card Wallet ($50) is a stitched leather option with 4 card slots. The all-leather construction is designed to develop a gorgeous patina as it ages and the slim design is perfect for conserving pocket space

Here we check out a unique everyday carry pocket knife from Deejo Knives ($70) which features a dope custom blade tattoo. These are some of the most customizable knives on the planet, they are super light, and ideal for everyday carry. They allow you to pick a unique ‘tattoo’ to make the knife your own as well as choosing the blade and handle features.

We round it out with the Jaybird Vista Earthproof Wireless Headphones (SALE $98, usually $180) in black. These earbuds have been overhauled to meet the military’s MIL-STD 810G requirements. If they’re rugged enough for the troops they’re good enough for you, right? In order to receive the MIL-STD 810G certification the ‘Earthproof’ Vistas had to endure ‘repeated shock, vibration, drop and crush tests, as well as withstanding tropical humidity, hurricane-force water and desert sandstorm conditions.’

Last up is the Topo Designs Rover Pack Heritage Canvas Series (SALE: $94, usually $159) featured in a Forest Canvas/Brown Leather colorway. This everyday backpack comes from Colorado-based Topo Designs and features a pretty massive central compartment for all your gear as well as an internal 15″ laptop sleeve, top flop closure, cop carry handle, additional zippered pockets, and lots more. This American-made backpack is worth every penny.
