Avatar photo Avatar photo

December is here, which means we’re all in the home stretches of finding the perfect gifts for ourselves and for our loved ones. To help with the holiday hunt, we’ve teamed up with a lot of great brands this year to give you ideas for your holiday shopping list, and below we’ve put together 13 of our favorite products that would be excellent additions to any everyday carry.

Dango EDC Tray

It can be hard to find a gift for someone on your list who’s already into everyday carry. Your best bet might be to improve some other aspect of their life by gifting them something that works for them no matter what they might already have in their pockets. Dango’s EDC Tray embodies “a place for everything and everything in its place,” and with its precision CNC machined aluminum organizer tray, this solution provides the user with dedicated spaces for EDC essentials like wallets, keys, knives, and phones. Dango’s EDC Tray also comes with DTEX fabric pads that add an extra layer of protection of items placed inside of the caddy, and non-slip pads at the bottom of the tray prevent it and its contents from sliding around on top of a table. Each tray is made in the USA, and it makes the perfect gift whether you’re introducing someone new to EDC or rounding out the holiday list for a well-seasoned vet.

Chrome Industries Doubletrack Handlebar Sling

Chrome Industries is best known for making tough, everyday sling bags like the Doubletrack Handlebar that are perfect for any bicycle commuters on your gift list. But its small design and smart carry options also make it a great option for any EDCers on your list who favor a lightweight carry bag when they’re headed out the door, whether they ride a bike to work or not. Its crossbody design has 5 liters of space for EDC essentials, a magnetic closure for easy access, and a durable nylon shell with 70D nylon poly liner for water-resistance. The Doubletrack also comes with quick access mesh side pockets, and can stow its strap for ease of packing or transitioning between use cases. It can be mounted on a handle bar or carried crossbody while on a bike, carried loose or tight against the body as the situation allows. At 0.88 lbs unloaded, it won’t weigh anyone down during daily use, and it will be a gift much appreciated to anyone you chose to give it to this special time of year.

Filson x Buck Knives 106 Compadre Axe

For your friends and family who frequent the great outdoors or are longing to hit the trail again in the near future, the gift of a superior camping axe like the Filson X Buck Knives 106 Compadre is one of the best additions you can make to their outdoor everyday carry. The Compadre features a full tang 5160 spring steel construction that’s superior to most camp axes thanks to excellent toughness, chip resistance, and ease of honing, letting it stand up to use and abuse when breaking through wood to make a fire or to open up a clearing. With its blaze orange Cerakote finish, it’s extremely resistant against corrosion too, and easily identified in a pinch. Its canvas micarta scales are given a traditional wood look, but offers more grip and imperviousness to water, sweat, and chemicals with a signature dry finish Tin Cloth layered in resin. Each axe is made in the USA and they’re only available for a limited time, so act quickly if you want to gift one this year.

MTM Cobra Watch

Given their unique functionality, smartwatches seem like an obvious choice for EDC. But the person on your gift lists prefers a classic, rugged look to their EDC watch, the common techy or fitness band designs just won’t do. That’s why MTM Watch brought their expertise in tactical and military watch design to the front with the Cobra. It’s a 44mm tactical chronograph alarm watch with a classic slide rule bezel and durable yet lightweight grade 2 titanium case construction that makes for a cutting-edge look that performs when seconds count. Adding to the rugged aesthetic are overbuilt push buttons, a locking and screw down crown, and exquisite finishes available in titanium, with a robust leather and canvas strap. With bright Super-LumiNova lume on the indices and the hands of the watch, the light is easy to read in the dark, without needing external light or charging from the sun to get the lume going. And with its reliable Japanese quartz Miyota OS-80 movement with its chrono hour/min/sec, 1/20 second, and date complications protected under a scratch-resistant and UV protective coated sapphire crystal, the Cobra will keep time for years to come on your giftee’s wrist. Get a special discount with code EDC10 through to December 22nd.

Stanley Drinkware

When it comes to making double-walled insulated vacuum drinkware, Stanley has a leg up on the competition. After all, they have over a hundred years of experiencing making these daily EDC essentials that help keep hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold, ever since William Stanley Jr. invented the design in 1913. With that kind of expertise, Stanley continues to innovate and expand the range of products they offer, giving you a wide range of options aside from their traditional tall coffee and water bottle thermal flasks. That variety makes them a great one-stop shop for anyone on your gift list this year. They have everything from a double-wall insulated beer pint, traditional coffee flasks, a nice camp mug, and even a large French press that’ll keep that essential drink hot for hours.

Glow Rhino Tritium Glow Fob

Not being able to find your keys or other small EDC essentials in the dark can be frustrating. And while you might think you carry a flashlight around for that occasion, what happens when that flashlight is attached to the keys you’re looking for in the first place? And whether you’re gifting for yourself or for anyone on your list who tends to have a hard time finding their gear once the sun goes down, the Tritium Glow Fob is a great addition to anybody’s everyday carry. This small and lightweight key fob has a vial of tritium inside of it, a material that glows in the dark with no batteries and without having to be charged by another light source. That means once the lights go out, the Tritium Glow Fob is already on the job, illuminating with an easily-identifiable green (or blue, depending on the model) glow visible from over 30 feet away. The Tritium Glow Fob is available in your choice of CNC-machine steel or titanium, and both models contain a glass breaker tip for emergency situations. At the top of the fob is a key ring, perfect for attaching to essentials you don’t want leaving your sight. It’s a unique design with useful functionality and makes for a great stocking stuffer this holiday gifting season. As a special offer, Glow Rhino is offering EDC readers 30% off their entire order with code EDC30

G-SHOCK Connected Gravitymaster GRB200-1A

At its heart, the Gravitymaster GRB200-1A features a weather-resistant Carbon Core Guard Structure that meshes a sturdy resin case with carbon fiber reinforcement. This doesn’t just improve durability, but it also helps keep the watch lightweight at 80 grams, even with a sizable 63mm case. Carbon Core construction also makes it vibration-resistant. Fans of the carbon fiber will revel in its bezel structure thanks to the semi-transparent bezel with carbon fiber insert while mineral glass keeps its dial protected, and 200 meters of water resistance keeps its internals free from moisture ingress. The combination of analog and digital displays gives it an aerospace aesthetic, while the quartz movement helps keep time as accurate as possible, with a battery life of approximately 2 years on a CR2025 cell. An integrated Bluetooth module allows you to link the Gravitymaster to the G-SHOCK Connected smartphone app, where you can modify the watch’s settings, configuring it exactly to the needs of any mission: reviewing the subsequent mission and activity logs of altitude, route data, steps, calorie consumption, and more. And as one of G-SHOCK’s exclusive “Master of G” range of watches, this is a perfect choice for gifting to any discerning watch enthusiast on your gift list this holiday season.

The beauty of the NEBO Larry TRIO is that, true to its name, its three useful functions in one: an easy-to-use spot pen light, a wide-angle EDC work light on the side, and a red laser pointer at the top. Its slim design makes it easily pocketable no matter who you give it to, and its ability to recharge via micro-USB makes it an ultra-convenient everyday carry essential for anyone that finds themselves caught out in the dark or presenting in front of their peers at work (equally difficult in their own ways). Aside from the Larry TRIO, NEBO is the perfect destination for stocking stuffers and unique Christmas gifts for both everyday carry and flashlight fans, so make sure to check out all of the other items they have to offer. These include The Classic, a 1920’s inspired vintage flashlight, and the Handyone Combo Kit which lets you gift three EDC essentials to anyone on your list for one low price. There’s free shipping right now for any order above $20 and you get a free TRUE No Touch Carabiner Tool on all orders with the purchase of any product from the NEBO holiday gift guide.

3Coil Puna with Action Case

If you’re looking for a fun, but functional stocking stuffer for the EDCer in your life, take a look at 3Coil’s Puna with Action Case. It’s a unique take on a utility craft scalpel knife in a design that’s inspired by a tactical rifle, carried in a water-, dust-, and shockproof miniature case that includes five interchangeable No.11 blades. It’s certainly eye-catching, but it’s made for more than just its looks, as the Puna itself disassembles to reveal multi-tool functionality that includes a keychain hole, a bottle opener, a Philips and flathead slotted screwdriver, and of course, a carbon steel craft utility blade that makes short work of small utility tasks. And like the tactical rifles it takes the shape of, this tool is meant to be modular, with a rail system built for mounting accessories coming in the future for further customization options. As an added bonus, you can save 10% off your order with code EDC at checkout.

Ridge Wallet

Getting rid of a bulky back pocket wallet and optimizing it into a minimal and efficient cash and card carrier is often the gateway to the greater world of everyday carry for most people. And if you have someone on your shopping list who could use an introduction to the world of minimalist front pocket wallets, consider giving the gift of one of the best out there: the Ridge Wallet. With room for 1-12 essential payment and identification cards and easy fan-style operation, the Ridge is a great introduction for people who are coming from a large, bulky, traditional wallet overstuffed with cards and receipts they don’t really use or need, but continue to carry because they have the space. Compared to a soft leather wallet, the Ridge inspires confidence—it feels bombproof. It’s comfortable in the hand too, thanks to its smooth matte finish and chamfered edges. And if you’re looking to gift the best of the best, you can pick it up in premium, exotic materials like titanium, carbon fiber, and even damascus or 18K gold plating. 

For a limited time, you can save 10% off Ridge’s entire store, so you can save on getting that perfect holiday gift and perhaps pick up some additions to your own EDC as well. Make sure to use code HOLIDAY10 on checkout and buy your gifts today.

No matter which multitool is carried by the person on your gift list, Clip & Carry—a dedicated sub-brand of StatGear—has custom fit kydex sheaths for over two dozen of the most popular multi-tools from Gerber, Leatherman & Victorinox. They’re all made in the USA by a Military Veteran, and each model comes in a variety of colors from the always popular black as well as carbon fiber finishes for black, coyote tan, orange and red. The sheaths feature adjustable retention that allows tuning for how tight they hold on to the multi-tool and how easy they are to deploy. Compatible models are added every few weeks, and a custom sheath is a great gift to maximize a multi-tool’s use for everyday tasks.

If you’re looking to gift a compact and dependable frame lock EDC blade that will serve its user well no matter the task or application, SOG’s Stout FLK is a great choice. It’s one of their best models to gift this holiday season, with a dependable 2.62″ drop point blade with an ambidextrous eyehole deployment and a shape that’s true to its name. Its stout design gives it plenty of strength as a piercing tool, and its well-defined tip helps it excel at that task, but its CRYO D2 tool steel composition and belly make it great for slicing and chopping too. That’s what should be expected from this collaboration with custom knife maker Mikkel Willumsen and the founder of SOG, Spencer Frazer. The design also features a pronounced choil at the neck of the blade, offering the user an extended grip despite the shorter 3.77″ handle. Its presence also makes sharpening and maintaining the blade on a whetstone an easier task to accomplish. Pick the colorway that your special someone would prefer, whether all black or olive drab G10 and stonewashed blade, and add it to your holiday shopping cart today.
