Whether your dad is a handyman around the home or just needs a few basic tools, it’s never a bad idea to gift him some EDC essentials. These are the pieces of gear he’ll take with him just about everywhere. While the individual pieces of everyday carry will vary from dad to dad, there are a few things we think everyone can agree on. Pens, sunglasses, and wallets are useful items that will last a long time and come in handy when dad needs them. So these are the EDC gifts we think you should give this Father’s Day.


The James Brand The Redstone

We’ve said it dozens of times but The James Brand is among our favorite pocket knife makers. So, if dad’s in the market for a new EDC knife, turn to The James Brand. They recently released The Redstone knife, a colorful, durable, excellent pocket knife. It’s perfect for the great outdoors or just opening packages.


WESN CB Carabiner

Does your dad need a more efficient way to store his keys? Declutter all the rings and get him this sleek, minimalist carabiner. Machined from a single piece of titanium, it’s strong and durable so you don’t need to worry about dad losing his keys. The CB carabiner is the perfect gift for the budding EDC enthusiast.


Full Spectrum CBD Balm

[Partner]  Intense joint pain? Muscle spasm? Irritable skin? Recovery balm is for you. With a ratio of 4:1 CBD to CBG Recovery Balm is double anti-inflammatory and targets all your aches and pains. Combined with St John’s Wort, Peppermint and Camphor Recovery balm is amazing pre or post workout, morning or night. Moisturize your skin back to being happy.


MobyFox Smartwatch Bands

[Partner]  MobyFox watch straps and custom watch faces feature officially licensed designs from Star Wars, Harry Potter, Marvel, NASA, Netflix, DC Comics, and more. With over 100 watch bands to choose from, there’s something for everyone. Looking for something more subtle? MobyFox makes premium leather watch straps, sourced and hand-crafted in Barcelona. Complete the look with over 20 exclusive and custom watch faces included with each strap.


Bellroy Hide & Seek Wallet

I think it’s an unwritten rule that dads all have beat-up, oversized wallets. Do dad a solid and get him the slim, yet traditional Hide & Seek wallet from Bellroy. With hidden pockets for business cards and coins plus plenty of room for cards and cash, it’s a handsome leather wallet that’s sure to impress dad.


Dissim Inverted Lighter

Normally we’d recommend getting your old man a classic Zippo but we think the cool factor of the Dissim inverted lighter makes this an excellent choice for EDC enthusiast dads. The unique construction means you can ignite it at any angle for tough-to-reach spots like candles.


Big Idea Design Ti Arto

We think it’s always a good idea to keep a decent pen on hand. And for our EDC collection, we turn to Big Idea Design, makers of some of our favorite travel pens. And the all-titanium Arto is among the best we’ve come across. It features an adjustable length depending on the size of your refill, so it’s compatible with most refill options. It writes beautifully and looks fantastic, the perfect gift for dad.


Victorinox Onyx Ranger

A solid multi-tool is pretty much essential for any EDC setup. And the Ranger from Victorinox in an all-onyx colorway is an excellent choice for a Father’s Day gift. Made from premium Swiss Army Knife materials, this multi-tool sports a sharp and durable blade, wood saw, corkscrew, and more. It’s compact, discreet, and stylish and will get the job done every time.


Persol 714SM Sunglasses

A good pair of sunglasses are the perfect addition to an EDC lineup. And if you want to get dad a classic, stylish pair of shades, you can’t go wrong with the 714SM sunglasses from Persol. These folding sunglasses were worn by the king of cool himself so you know dad will appreciate these stunners. They’re certainly a little pricey so if you know your dad has been clumsy with his shades maybe skip this one.


Anker PowerCore Slim

A mobile battery pack is, like an umbrella, something you don’t always need but you’ll be glad to have it when you do. Anker is well-known for producing high-quality chargers and the PowerCore Slim is no different. This compact portable charger works for just about every phone and can easily slide in your pocket. Get dad the gift of power on the go with the Anker PowerCore Slim.


Pax 3

If there is a certified cool dad™ in your life who is known to enjoy some grass every now and then, you can help upgrade his game with one of the best vaporizers on the market. The versatile Pax 3 works with both real flower and concentrate cartridges. Plus, it is discreet enough for dad to get off a few puffs on the go. It’s an excellent addition to your stash of EDC gear. So get dad the gift of chilling out with the Pax 3.


Apple AirPods Pro

Whether your dad is still rocking his tunes on Pandora or he’s finally started making playlists on Spotify, he’ll appreciate the AirPods Pro. The ease of use and extreme convenience make them perfect for just about anyone. Plus, you can’t head out for the day without them. So gift dad a pair so he can take his music with him on the go.


Word. Notebooks New Black

While simple, a quality notebook is always an excellent gift. And, for the EDC enthusiast, a compact, portable one is even better. These notebooks from Word. are great for traveling or just keeping a to-do list at your desk. And dad will appreciate the no-frills design. Go for the refined black cover or grab something a little more colorful.


Hamilton Khaki Field Watch

The gorgeous military-inspired watches from Hamilton are perfect for any dad. So if you want to get a timepiece this Father’s Day, we’d recommend the Khaki Field Watch. It’s an impressively affordable option that looks great, performs better, and has some serious history. Pick out a new one or buy vintage on eBay.
