Every man, just like women, is very different. Not everyone has the patience to always carry everything they need in one bag. Most often than not, men always have the most minimalist bag with them. They are more into bringing smaller bags or just stuffing everything in their pockets. It can be because of the culture we all grew up with, where men only bring briefcases to business meetings and gatherings.
However, men are also expected to be prepared all the time. This means having something in their pockets and bags more than just their money and handkerchief. Every man should carry some essentials with him at all times. But, what are those?
7 Things every man should always carry with him
In this article, we will help every man reading this article to ensure that you will always be ready to be a knight in shining armour. You should always bring these items with you wherever you go and whenever you step out of the house. Let’s begin.
1. Your personal kit
Personal kits are not only for women. As a man, you also have your routines and other necessities. Because of that, you should always be ready to bring some of your personal items such as skincare products, personal hygiene, and of course, your vaping needs such as your U well device and pods. In that way, you will not need to borrow anything from anybody.
2. A multitasking tool
One of the basic tools a man can always carry is a Swiss Army knife. It’s a helpful tool that you can use on all types of needs regardless if you are spending a day outdoors or you’re just visiting a friend’s house. Luckily, there are a lot of multitasking tools nowadays. Some men may find a Swiss Army knife a bit bulky and heavy to carry. With the latest tools we have, you can now carry a knife and a bottle open at a size of a business card. It’s also something that you can store in your wallet!
3. Your business card case, of course
Talking about being prepared, it pays to always bring your business card. Nowadays, people are often using digital versions of their business cards or adding them through online messaging apps. But, what will happen if you are in a remote location with a bad internet connection and you meet a potential client? A physical business card can help you be connected at any location and with all types of people. So, it’s still worthy to be part of your daily needs.
4. A pack of mint
This may not be limited to men, but it pays to always have a pack of mint in your pocket or in your bag. Any type of quick breath freshener will work, of course. This is most especially if you are driving by yourself for quite a while or you are stuck in long traffic. If you are expected to talk to someone, you need to ensure that you will always smell minty-fresh. After all, masks are no longer required so you don’t have a shield for your bad breath anymore.
5. Powerbank or pocket charger
Technology makes our lives a lot easier. Sadly, it is all dependent on its battery life. To ensure that you will always be ready to report to work or check your emails, it’s best to have your power bank or portable chargers ready at all times. Nowadays, you no longer have to bring multiple types of these items. You can now buy an all-in-one portable charger or power bank that has a slot for all types of ports.
6. Your perfume
Apart from making sure that your breath is always minty fresh, you should also consider protecting yourselves from body odour. It’s best to always have your perfume in your bag to ensure that you’re ready to retouch in case of a long exposure outdoors. This is highly recommended as well if you are outside doing some business work. Nothing cracks a business deal more than facing a client with your bad odour.
7. Hey, you’re wallet!
Above all things, never ever lose your wallet. Well, since everything is digital nowadays, it may not be so much of a hassle to forget your wallet at home. You can now purchase things by scanning them with your phone. However, it cannot be the case at all times, so bringing cash is still recommended. Additionally, your wallet contains all your identification cards which may be required as physical evidence in some cases. So, never forget that.
Don’t forget your necessities!
You can never be overprepared. The things you need to bring may be different depending on your daily routine or the needs of your job. That is why it is of utmost recommendation to consider your lifestyle when choosing what to bring every day. Remember that while you want to be always ready to help your family and friends, at all costs, it’s also important to be prepared for yourself. Don’t forget to always bring the things listed above and you’ll surely survive being outside even for the entire day!
