    They are both grammatical sentences, but the first one seems incomplete.

    "everyone" refers all people in all groups, whereas "anyone" refers to any one person in one specific group. That is, you need to define the group that 'anyone' refers to. For example,

    1-This book is for anyone who wants to buy it.
