Everyday Carry Gifts: 2018’s Best Everyday Carry Items To Buy For The Holidays

by 2 weeks ago

everyday carry gift ideas

Everyday Carry is the term used to describe gear and apparel carried each day. Someone’s everyday carry collection can include 1 item or 10+. The gear often includes things like wallets, pocket knives, multi-tools, and the apparel worn on a daily basis that makes life easier and better.

Our previous Everyday Carry Gift Guide was such a resounding success that I wanted to fire it up again this year. Some everyday carry essentials are luxuries, others are useful in very specific instances. However, everyday carry gear is generally a collection of items that you can carry every single day.

Here I’ve gathered together the best of our daily everyday carry roundups here at BroBible and I’ve put them all into one extensive EDC holiday gift guide for you all to shop from. Each image has the items broken out into a grid with the shoppable items listed below. Now go forth and treat yourself!
