It is cut from 7075-T6 Aluminum then lightly bead blasted, and Type III Hardcoat Anodized for an exceptionally beautiful, durable, and functional finish. The Aeon Mk.

It’s affordable but also has all the goodies you would want and a great everyday watch. Some of these features include a water-resistance rating of 100 meters, a double domed sapphire crystal with an AR coating, hack setting automatic movement with manual winding, and a screw down crown.
Maxmadco Bolt Action Stainless Steel Retractable Pen
We like to support small business and I’m sure you do too. Maxmadco is a small manufacturer run by a machinist. He creates some beautiful pieces. One of my favorites is the Maxmadco Bolt Action Stainless Steel Retractable Pen ($85). It’s machined from stainless steel, including the pocket clip and the Torx screws and feels solid but well balanced, so writing for long periods of time is comfortable. The retractable, spring-loaded mechanism is fast, simple and easily operated with one finger or thumb from either right or left hand. There are no parts to wear out so it will give trouble-free service. The refill is the Itoya, Black 0.7 mm. The pen was designed to have a simple but elegant look. It is quite unique and is suitable for everyone. Proudly made in the USA.
Ray Ban Aviator Men’s Sunglasses
Need a quick and dirty gift for the stylish guy. Get them a pair of Ray Ban Aviator Men’s Sunglasses ($112). Pretty much everyone looks great in Ray-Bans and you can relax knowing the quality and warranty will be on point in case they want to return them.
Tanner Goods Key Lanyard
This is our most affordable gift on our list, but it still comes from a great company with an excellent reputation. The Tanner Goods Key Lanyard ($55) features a secure gated clasp, releasing keys quickly on the fly. The body of the lanyard wraps around a belt and fastens with a simple yet secure custom button stud. It’s available in a stainless or black finish and held in place by durable double-cap rivets. A perfect gift that anyone could use regardless of style or hobbies.
Victorinox Swiss Army Spirit Plus Ratchet
For the guys who are handy and always like to keep a set of tools within reach the Victorinox Swiss Army Spirit Plus Ratchet Multi-tool ($150) is a no-brainer. It has 34 tools that can be used for cutting, crimping, stripping, and much much more. It features one-step access, no clumping, and an easy lock and release button.
Tile Wallet and Key Trackers
So we’ve listed all of our top ten everyday carry gifts above, but I felt this list would be incomplete if we didn’t offer just one more gift idea. If the folks you’re buying for are a little absent minded like me then you have to pick up some Tile Wallet and Key Trackers ($25+). Just clip them on your keys or place them in your wallet, install the app and if you lose your item just activate the find function in the app and they’ll make a sound. There are other functions including community locate and a phone locator. So check their site for more details. I own the Tile and it’s saved me hours of searching over the years.
