The Trail Buddy ($65)

After a decade of being the go-to custom bag of the cycling community worldwide (even Antarctica), Daniel McKewen of Seagull Bags decided to branch into a more mainstream use with the creation of an ultra-versatile fanny pack perfect for camping, canoeing, and for holding tour maps so you can photograph historic monuments. seagullbags.com

The Transport Tote ($168)

Madewell (J. Crew's more casual cousin) carries the perfect carryall for the lady on the fly. A staple in the stores, the leather computer-sized bag comes in three different colors, can be monogrammed (for a fee), and never goes on sale. It never goes out of style, either.

Eagle Creek Pack-It ($22)

Avoiding that bag fee is a sport in itself, and with the right tools, your loved one can be victorious every time. This three-pack of giant compression Ziploc-style bags helps the expert packer to condense everything from socks to sweaters to the size of an envelope. No more paying extra for air space on the airplane. Urban Baggerie, 1500 Polaris Pkwy #1008, Polaris Fashion Place, 614-985-4177,urbanbaggerie.com

Anker Astro E6 External Battery ($49.99)
