Original designs created in-house. High-quality cotton. Affordable pricing. Founded by a pair of MBA students turned entrepreneurs, Jimmy Lion Socks is unique in the fashion industry. Based in NY, the founders scoured Europe for a manufacturing partner, finding one in Portugal that uses 200 needle machines and combed cotton to make exceptionally comfortable, durable socks. Each sock has a hand-linked toe for a flat, comfortable seam and is individually inspected before leaving the factory, ensuring that your pair is perfectly made long before it reaches your hands.

Named after the Mexican town where it's made by hand in a state-of-the-art, ethical factory, the Nisolo Leon Weekender Bag offers understated looks and top-notch construction. It's crafted from soft vegetable-tanned leather made using an age-old process, and will naturally gain character over time. Other features include an inner zipper pocket, tan cotton canvas lining, leather carry handles, leather zipper pulls, and an adjustable leather shoulder strap.

We're not sure if it completely lives up to its name, but the World’s Greatest Flashlight ($149) certainly makes a compelling case. It sports a halogen spotlight with the equivalent of 15 million candlepower and a rechargeable battery to run the spotlight for up to 11 hours, a swiveling 1W LED spotlight and soft area lamp, a built-in handle and stand, and a nylon carrying belt.
If you're prone to getting lost, maybe it's time for a personal GPS device. The Bushnell BackTrack ($60) is a pocket-size, less-is-more gadget that provides a fool proof way for finding your way back to any location. Combining GPS technology and a digital compass, the weather resistant BackTrack features just two buttons and simplified user interface, and can store and find up to three locations. Once a location is recorded (car at the mall, hotel room in Vegas, etc.), all it takes is just the push of a button to navigate back to where you started.
