In general,  "to bring" is to carry something with you, often to a new place and as a gift and "to take" is to remove something for yourself. 

 

He brought a cake.

 

He took the car.

 

In some cases, however, bring and take have come to mean the same thing, but with slightly differences in meaning.

 

Bring a jacket. (Bring one of your own for your use.)

 

Take a jacket. (Grab a jacket and let's go.)
