4. Deep Sea Sand Art

Maybe he or she is not always on the road, but want something that will remind him or her of nature's magnificent beauty. This ephemeral sand-scape artfully demonstrates the universal principle of entropy through a fascinating, ever-changing microcosm of natural elements. Simply rotate the glass ring and watch as delicate drifts of light and dark sand shift into deserts, mountains, clouds, rain, oceans and smoke, all ebbing and flowing into one another. There is an eternal yet fleeting quality about this interactive art, and the sparkling sand will mesmerize as it shapes a tiny world right before your eyes. This might be the coolest gift ever!

5. Women's Organizing Travel 4-pack

Printed with images of what's inside, these travel bags keep your to-go essentials stylishly contained. The Gift of Travel

Travel is complicated enough without getting shoe schmutz on your dress shirt, or fishing around in the bottom of your luggage as you try to find your charging cords. But it gets a lot easier when you're using these stylish pouches from designer Jennifer Jansch. Inspired by the pleasure of unwrapping a gift, she created this set of handy travel bags, each printed with a bold, black-and-white image of its content and sealed with a grosgrain ribbon. Use them to pack your shoes, blow dryer, lingerie, and laundry, and everything you need will be neatly contained, untangled and right where you need it. Made in China.

6. Adventure Blanket

One day you're stretched out on a sunny beach. The next you're enjoying the beat of your favorite festival. Whatever your next adventure, this handy, enhanced blanket is designed to be the handy companion for all your outdoor adventures. Combining a top layer of repurposed nylon flannel with a bottom layer of upcycled ripstop nylon, it marries the water resistance of a tarp with the warm comfort of a lightweight throw. These tough materials also mean that dirt, water, and sand disperse with a shake before you pack it up for your next outing. A clever, zippered pouch along the side lets you stow valuables and pack the blanket into itself to double as a pillow. The 4 x 6 foot blanket even includes a hood and connectable snaps for emergency poncho use if bad weather rolls in.

7. Nesting Camper Cooking Set

Keep camping (and other out-of-kitchen activities) a civilized affair with this cooking set. You may enjoy the great outdoors, but for the love of brown butter, you're no animal. Keep camping (and other out-of-kitchen activities) a civilized affair with this culinary travel kit, which includes essentials such as nesting non-stick pots, crush-proof, heat-resistant strainer lids, and color-coded tableware. The durable nylon tote doubles as a wash basin.

8. Portable Camp Grill and Charger

Going off the grid always got them fired up. This integrated generator system lets you cook, boil, and charge, all using the power of a compact, smokeless furnace. The kit includes a lightweight, portable grill and "KettlePot" attachments, plus a built-in charger that can power your smartphone or other USB-chargeable devices by converting heat into electricity. It also includes a flexible USB light which illuminates the grill and surroundings. This space-saving, comprehensive camp kitchen runs on renewable biomass such as twigs, pine cones, and wood pellets.

9. Beauty Makeup Travel Case

Every minute of vacation time is precious. Don't waste any of it digging through your suitcase in search of a rogue tube of mascara. This zippered travel case is a stylish place to stash all of your beauty essentials for easy access. Topped by a grosgrain ribbon and adorned with a vintage-style graphic, the canvas pouch is tall enough to hold a jar of face cream and long enough to contain multiple makeup brushes. Though its sturdy handle makes it a great pick for on-the-go grooming, don't be surprised if it earns a permanent place on your bathroom counter.

10. Travel Cord Roll

Here's to a tangle-free travel! Easily pack your electronics cords and other knick knacks with this stylish travel roll. Luggage shifts, cords tangle, but you can keep your electronic companions organized in style with this travel roll. No more untangling a messy handful of cords just to charge your phone, rather, neatly tuck up to eight cords and two plugs into your stylish organizer. It's also great for stowing small knick-knacks like watches, hair clips, or other on-the-go necessities.

11. Anti-Theft Backpack

This backpack uses clever design to defy pickpockets on your daily commute. You'll feel more calm and confident on your daily commute with this high-security backpack keeping your valuables safe. Its stylish exterior camouflages a range of anti-theft features, from hidden zippers to slash-proof materials. Clever pockets tucked into the straps and back allow you to easily access your transit pass, cash, and other quick essentials. Roomy interior pockets not only keep your laptop, books, pens, and peripherals organized, but they also balance the weight carefully against your back, making it feel up to 25% lighter than the same load in a standard pack. The exterior is water- and spill-proof, with a layer of spongy, breathable cushioning against your back. For those long days on the road, an integrated USB port lets you access your phone while connected to your charger (not included) inside. And for those whose rush hour is spent pedaling, there's reflective strips to keep you visible.
