3. Toiletries Tote

Let's face it: Some of us don't travel as lightly as we ought to. So for those who take comfort in packing all our favorite oils and unguents, lotions and assorted sundries, this well-organized hanging kit features plenty of compartments and can accommodate full-size bottles. Perhaps someone you know will need two.

4. No-Jet-Lag

These small, white, pleasant-tasting homeopathic pills can make the difference between travelers falling asleep on their first day and seeing the sights. Directions say to chew one at take-off, and then every two hours when not asleep on the plane. They work for me.

5. TSA-Approved Combination Lock

With one of these luggage locks affixed to a suitcase, the only traveler who can unlock it is the key holder. And the only official who can plumb its contents is a Transportation Safety Administration worker with a key. The lock will indicate if it as been opened. Makes a good gift for those who travel with valuable cargo.
