    I would choose bring along. Can we use the second phrasal verb( bring back)?

    Default Re: bring along or bring back

    In this particular context, where someone has been to Syria and has come home, they will bring back with them their gifts.

    To use "bring along", the context would be something like "I will bring along some cake to the picnic" or "Can you bring him along when you come to see me?" - meaning "with me/you".
