everyday carry essentials gift ideas

It is high time to tell Santa what we all want underneath the Christmas tree this year. These are some of the best everyday carry items for guys out there on the market today. Each of these EDC accessories has been hand-selected to improve your daily life from sun up to sundown. You can shop the full collection or pick out any of your favorites by following the links down below!

First up today is the Todd Snyder x Timex Q Bracelet Watch ($179) which is a limited-edition collaboration between Timex and Todd Snyder. This is a perfect watch for everyday wear because you can dress it up or down depending on the occasion as it easily fits with jeans and a sweater or a suit. It features a retro ‘brick link’ bracelet, is water-resistant up to 50 meters, and is powered by a reliable quartz movement.

The SeaVees Mariner Boots in Twilight Blue ($158) is a colorway that’s exclusive to Huckberry and a pair of boots I love for year-round wear but particularly the next few months. You can rock these with jeans or chinos and the waterproof suede leather uppers will keep your feet dry. These boots have a gusseted tongue for water resistance, a custom contoured footbed with a soft canvas lining, and a natural gum rubber sole that’s non-marking so you can wear these on the boat if you want.

The Billy Reid Diamond Quilt Shawl is everything I look for in a sweater-style: an oversized and comfortable collar, warm knit construction, and a clean-cut style. This is made with diamond-quilted fabric and features contrast elbow patch detail. It’s as comfortable as it is stylish.

You can pair that sweater with the Lululemon At Ease Joggers which have become one of my favorite lines from lululemon (the At Ease collection). They’re made with a four-way stretch fabric that’s naturally breathable, have a classic tapered fit with room to move, a crotch gusset for extra range of motion, and they’re really just the most comfortable pants you’ll own this year. For real, tell Santa you want these.

Here we have the Leatherman Rebar Multi-Tool With Heritage Sheath ($79) which has SEVENTEEN TOOLS tucked into this awesome everyday carry multi-tool. Leatherman is the best. That’s the pitch. I’ve had a Leatherman since I was in the Cub Scouts. They last a lifetime. They’re better than the competition. And they’re reasonably priced. This is a perfect everyday carry tool to keep with you at all times, tuck in the truck, backpack, or toolbox.

Next, we have the Tanner Goods Journeyman Wallet ($65) in ‘Saddle Tan’ leather. I love this slim-profile 3.5oz premium tooling leather wallet with four card slots and a large central pocket for cash. This is made right here in the USA. It also comes in Cognac leather and a few other colorways if you’re looking to match it to your favorite belt or boots.

The Mehlville Carabiner by The James Brand ($60) is a dual-compartment carabiner that’s perfect as an EDC keychain. It is machined from a solid block of aluminum and the anodized finish ensures it won’t break down and corrode like cheaper options. It also has a notch for opening bottles!

Here we’ve got the The Cache River Bit Driver ($60) which is an incredibly handy everyday carry tool to have with you. This is one of those items that’s never nearby when I need it. The low-profile form factor designed specifically for everyday pocket carry and it features lightweight aluminum construction with a durable anodized finish. It has ball bearing pivot for smooth driving action and the magnetic bit attachment point keeps it firmly in place when it’s in use. As I said, this is just a clutch tool to have with you most times.

We round it out today with the Bullet Space Pen in Chrome which sells for only $25, is made in the USA, and carries the classic Fisher ‘Bullet’ design that was developed in 1948. This pen uses a pressurized ink cartridge for an even, dependable flow that will write under any conditions.

Last up we’ve got the Topo Designs Rover Pack – Heritage Canvas Series backpack ($159) which is perfect as an everyday backpack but can easily be used as a travel bag or weekender thanks to the ample amount of storage space. This bag’s made in Colorado and has a classic top flop closure + dual side-release clasps and top carry handle. The internal laptop sleeve fits 15″ laptops and there are countless pockets and EDC storage areas throughout.
