Gift: Thinktank Photo Retrospective 7
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.

Gift: Doettling Guardian
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.

Voyager Legend Bluetooth headset
Gift: Voyager Legend Bluetooth headset
The Voyager Legend Bluetooth headset from Plantronics saves you having to pick up and answer your smartphone manually -- a useful gadget if you're in a communication-heavy job.
If worn, the headset, once paired via Bluetooth to your device, will announce who is calling -- then you can choose either to 'answer' or 'ignore' the call through speech alone. You can also tap the command button at the front of the thin, silver part of the set to check the battery level, connection status and to test speech quality.
If you want to check your emails in a hurry, you can also dial to listen to them without lifting a finger. If you happen to mislay the headset, if you have an Android phone and have downloaded the company's app, you can ask it to track last usage or send a tone to hear the set.
