Bring and Take are very nit-picky; if you are face to face with someone, and they stay but you go, it has to be 'take'; if you go together, both 'bring' and 'take' are ok. If the other person is already there, and you are joining them, must be Bring. If neither of you is there, must be take.

Neither is correct - it should be 'Take' not 'Bring' Give me something to take, so that I won't arrive with empty hands. If you are two going together you could say: Give me something to bring with us. 'Cause I don't want to be there with empty hands.
