We're in the home stretch, and the holidays are literally just days away. In spite of this year, on behalf of the Everyday Carry team we hope you are all safe, sound, and with plenty of presents for yourselves and for your loved ones. But the year's not over, and before we sign off we'd just like to give you all a few more gift ideas that have passed across our desk from our friends and brands across the industry. If you're looking for a few more gift ideas, want to add even more for the post-holidays, or just want to see the last few awesome releases before year's end (or to get a head start on the next), we've got you covered in this roundup.


Super Coffee: Get a head start on your healthy and tasty coffee alternative for the next year with Super Coffee's subscription deal, which gets you 30% off your first subscription offer and free shipping with code SUPERSELF, valid from 12/27 through to 2/8.

Bellroy Gift Cards: Bellroy's made some great releases this year (and surely more to come), so give the gift of awesome EDC bags, wallets, accessories and more with their new gift cards.

WUBEN H5 Flashlight: A 90-degree magnetic flashlight is a versatile addition to any flashaholic's kit, and WUBEN have the perfect 400-lumen powerhouse for the one on your list.

HUNT 4.0 Tool: It's a flashlight, lighter, and pry tool in one tiny titanium package, and a great way to add these essential functions (two of which are hard to come by naturally!) to your EDC.

PICHI X2: Speaking of EDC tools, the PICHI X2 is a creative titanium multi-tool able to cover your ratcheting, prying, and cutting bases in a compact package.

The James Brand Redstone: The latest and most colorful knife from the James Brand to date comes with some of their most unique design elements yet, including a partially serrated 12C27 blade and an "island" design for the handles inspired and designed by professional rock-climber and photographer Savannah Cummins.

Stanley Quencher: Get all-day hydration in a fully featured tumbler, including a cover with a rotating lid to switch between a wide opening and use with a straw, a rugged handle for carry, and a tapered base that fits cup holders. Catch it in three limited edition colorways, as well!

Tactile Knife Co.: Best known for their pens, Tactile have made their mark in the knife market with three solid releases of their Bexar and Rockwall knives, with ultra-premium materials and a design language that comes with the DNA of their sleek machined pens.

Orbitkey AirTag Slim Case and Leather Holder: Orbitkey once again flexes their design chops to take the headache out of carrying essential gear and gadgets on your keychain. This time around they've developed elegant solutions to carry the new Apple AirTag item trackers that also carry the rest of your keys via integrated key rings. The Slim Case is an open ring designed for an AirTag to snap in place, giving it a sleek look minimalists can appreciate. The Leather Holder gives a more premium look and feel thanks to its sustainably sourced moulded leather.

Arc'Teryx Gamma MX ReBird: The technical outdoor gear brand continues their sustainability efforts with their ReBird garments, which are made from excess materials that would otherwise go to waste. The Gamma MX ReBird is a softshell jacket that's built to last and versatile enough for mixed conditions, available in this unique color combination as part of the ReBird program.
