    Gift: Thinktank Photo Retrospective 7

    Price: $162.75

    The Retrospective 7 carry case from Thinktank Photo is a handy gift for the photographer who has delicate gear to protect -- but doesn't want to advertize to the world what they're carrying. 

    Designed to carry and protect a DSLR, the low-key bag also has a rear slot which fits an iPad or 11-inch MacBook Air, a padded shoulder strap and can accommodate two or three lenses.

  • Doettling Guardian

    Gift: Doettling Guardian

    Price: $18,000+

    The Guardian case from Doettling is a high-tech way to keep your valuables secure.

    The 14.5 inch-long case, made from leather, also has a double-walled polycarbonate tube which the manufacturers claim can withstand drills and saws if someone attempts to get to the jewelry, documents or money within. To open the Guardian, you need to input a three-digit code. When locked, the 'door' mechanism, made from four high-carbon steel locking bolts, denies sticky fingers entry.

    If you're unfortunate enough to have the case stolen, then a GPS transmitter can tell you precisely where it is.
