As the holiday season approaches, it’s more important this year than ever to plan your gifts in advance so you’re not caught out in the lurch. And if you need gift ideas for EDC enthusiasts or anyone else on your list who appreciates well-designed, practical gear, The James Brand should be on your radar. They entered the scene with EDC knives that paired high-end premium materials with a refreshing industrial design that blurred the lines between minimalist and utilitarian. Whether the person you’re shopping for is already a well-equipped EDC gear collector or someone who just fancies great design and considered essentials, these gift ideas from The James Brand are sure to please.

For Knife Enthusiasts: The Carter – Black & Stainless

The knife nut on your list deserves no less than the most advanced (and arguably most handsome) knife from The James Brand: the Carter. It’s chock-full of EDC-friendly features, starting with its ideal 2.8“ drop point blade made of a highly corrosion resistant VG-10 stainless steel. It’s supported by The James Brand’s ambidextrous slide lock for simple and secure operation, with an enlarged thumb disk for easy opening. 3D-machined G10 scales give the knife excellent grip and ergonomics, while a reversible deep carry clip and included lanyard insert let them choose their favorite way to carry the knife.

For Fashionable Folks: Wayland Damasteel

If you’re looking to gift a knife with a bit of pizzazz, check out The Wayland with its gorgeous rosewood handle and attractive Damasteel blade. It’s The James Brand’s take on the classic traditional Barlow gent’s knife, with a manual nail nick opening and a utility-oriented sheepsfoot blade shape. But unlike the blades of old, the DS93X stainless steel at the heart of this blade has superior hardness and edge retention. It’s a beautiful and practical marriage of modern performance and classic inspiration, making it a timeless gift for the person on your list who likes their gear to be in it for the long haul.

For Minimalists: Elko Cerulean

For the minimalist EDCer in your life, The Elko is a great choice—especially in its most vibrant cerulean colorway. Within the Elko’s robust aluminum handle is a 1.74″ Sandvik 12C27 stainless steel blade that has enough cutting edge to get small daily tasks done. Despite its small size, the Elko is surprisingly capable, even compared to bigger knives. That’s because its lanyard hole functions as a key ring, pry tool, screwdriver, and bottle opener. With all its features, durable materials, and compact size, The Elko makes a great addition to any keychain.

For Handy Folks: Cache River

You might have someone one your list who seems to just know how to repair anything. But even the best fixers rely on their tools, and a screwdriver is one of the most useful to have around. The problem is they aren’t exactly the easiest to carry around. Gifting them the Cache River is an easy way to make sure they’ve got their handy screwdriver with them at all times. Its sturdy anodized 6061 aluminum body accommodates two Wiha bits including a Phillips #2, a Torx T6, and a slotted 4.5 flat driver in total. Magnetic hardware attaches and stores bits with ease, too. At just 26 grams, it’s a utility powerhouse that won’t weigh them down.

For Creatives and Professionals: Stilwell Black

The gift of a well-designed pen is always welcome if they’re the creative or productive type. Or if the person on your list notoriously always asks to borrow a pen, it’s a great idea to gift them one they won’t want to part with. The Stilwell from the James Brand ensures a smooth writing experience and easy maintenance by replacing its standard and commonly available D1 ink insert. The twist-off cap design helps keep it compact until it’s time to write, while the rear hole allows for keychain or lanyard carry so they’re always equipped with their trusty pen.
