For the person who likes to hit the road you want to gift them something that will simplify the way they travel. Destination Bags keeps all of your belongings organized by designing compact storage compartments. A streamline packing solution for clothing, cosmetics, intimates, toiletries, as well as hidden pockets for valuables are some of the features.

The men’s collection features an On The Go toiletry case that has a built-in grooming slot and 4 compartments ranging in size and a Duffle Bag equipped for weekend getaways or to the gym. ($140-$200)
What is the best thing to pair with watching movies? Wine, obviously. We like the Turner Classic Movies quarterly shipment of limited produced wines from around the world. Picture watching Citizen Kane while uncorking Orson Welles signature selection Merlot, or the original Psycho alongside a bottle of Alfred Hitchcock Presents Syrah. Tonight’s feature: The Postman Always Rings Twice. ($79.99 for a case of three collectible bonus bottles)
How many times have you wanted to watch a classic or cult film that is not available via Netflix? FilmStruck features the largest and exclusive streaming to the Criterion Collection of contemporary, classic, indie, foreign and cult films. It also highlights filmmaker interviews and rare footage. This is definitely a movie lovers dream and having so many ways to consume flicks is a plus. Their library is updated each week so there are hundreds to choose from instead of traveling all across the globe to view that rare documentary. ($99 for a one-year subscription)
“That time of the month” should be a celebration of womanhood, instead of a nuisance, or at worst, an umbrella of shame. A Genie’s Dream is a monthly tube of gifts to lift her spirits. A surprise mixture of treasures featuring organic tampons and pads, makeup, and perhaps a chakra balancing soy candle, premium loose leaf tea highlighting medicinal herbs, and chocolate. Necessities and pampering gems beautifully packaged in a tube to help her embrace a more spiritually satisfying time. ($25-40)
Does he really need another tie or assortment of boxers? No. Have him unwrap something he would really appreciate- a gift of treats. The BroBasket offers an amazing assortment of gift baskets that will make his day. Highlights include the Golfers Delight Gift Basket equipped with necessities such as Callaway™ golf balls, Nicaraguan Cigars, and Johnny Walker Black Label Scotch. We like the Whiskey Sampler Basket that features Gourmet Flavored Popcorn, Brookside Chocolate, a tumbler and oh yeah, bottles of booze including Macallan 12 year, Makers Mark Bourbon, Knob Creek, Jameson Irish Whiskey, Johnny Walker Red and Black Label. Boozeless gift baskets are also available like the Health Nut- Crossfit Gift filled with cans of tuna, protein bars, and muscle milk. Or the Junk Foodie Care Package packed with candy bars, beef jerky, Frito lay chips and Red Bull. ($39-$165)
Some may be gifting ganja instead of wine this holiday season. After all, in a number of states it is legal to gift up to an ounce of cannabis to adults over the age of 21, if the item does not cross state lines or require shipping. This limited edition One Ounce Cannabis Tasting Flight features eight of Lowell Farm’s best strains in a handcrafted wood case. They are individually packaged in vacuum -sealed glass jars. After the popularity of their pre-rolls, Lowell Farms has quickly become California’s premiere organically grown cannabis brand. ($300)
