Dogeared Jewelry Roll

Glamour girls who travel need storage for their baubles. Dogeared Design’s jewelry roll comes in serveral cheery colors and is made of organic cotton. $50,

Fred Flare Soaps

It looks like a PB&J but unfortunately doesn’t smell like one. Give this handmade soap to your friend on a perpetual diet. The Typography Soap is perfect for your friend or loved one who answers the “What’s your type” questions with words like Helvetica or Century Gothic. $11,

Jimmyjane Sensory Set

For when you can’t get to the spa, this recently launched massage kit brings together some of Jimmyjane’s best at-home massage tools, which are made from hygienic, biocompatible porcelain. The Contour M Ceramic Massage Stone (winner of an IDEA Award for design) can be used three ways for medium-pressure all over massage; the Contour Q textured stones pair are made for more targeted therapy; and the Beyond Sensational Massage Lotion enhances both. $50.00,

Living Ethos Gift Bags

No matter what you decide to give this season, think about re-usable gift wrapping. This company offers a line of bags, designed to last for years, so the bags can change hands again and again. They come in four sizes, and some very tasteful patterns. We like Deco Maze in black and white, or the Dottie Red, for the holiday gifting without succumbing to the usual motifs. Mini, $6; small, $7; medium, $8; large, $10; Set of 4, $28.00,

Sonoma Lavender Travel Set and Footies

On-the-go relaxation is a breeze with these chic picks from California-based Sonoma Lavender. The Travel Set includes a cushy pillow and an eye mask, both scented with lavender-eucalyptus mix that helps to calm and refresh. The matching silk slippers (sold separately and dry clean only) come with removable lavender-eucalyptus flaxseed inserts, which can be heated for extra soothing. Travel Pillow/Sleep Mask Set, $26; Footies, $30,

Ever wonder where all those bottle caps go when you pop them off your favorite beer? We don’t either. But we think Kate Grenier’s magnets, using recycled bottle caps, are pretty cool. Set of six magnets, $18,
