In the quest to help you and yours to beef up the EDC game, we’ve made some choice gift selections that we’d pick for ourselves. There are some important staples every guy should have, as well as extras that will sweeten the everyday carry kit to make others green with envy. Maybe that’s not the holiday spirit, but hey.
