Bag and luggage maker Away offers gift sets that come in a miniature carry-on. There’s a grooming gift set, a beauty set, an essentials set, and just the carry-on itself. The carry-on comes in a variety of colors and materials, but we think the aluminum one is the best.

While the weight of a suitcase made from wood makes it a bit impractical, we still love the look of this beautiful piece of luggage that Ollari’s created from bent pieces of 8mm thick plywood. It always amazes us the kind of things you can do with just wood, glue, and some skill.
Loctote improves on its one-of-a-kind anti-theft drawstring backpack. The Flak Sack II features an improved fabric that has the highest rating for slash, tear and abrasion resistance. Its locking strap is steel-reinforced, and its straps are also resistant to cutting as well.
