    - a compass, you'd be surprised to find out how many people don't know how to tell which way is north.
    - pocket knife, i've carried one for 15 years and still do. an invaluable tool for those out and about.
    - duct tape, 101 uses. fixed up burst bike tyres, kept camera from falling apart, used to make luggage tamper proof... etc.
    - make a present. i spent a day at the beach picking up pieces of multi coloured glass which had been worn smooth by waves and rocks, placed them all in a jar, filled it with water and sealed it tight. my then gf, now my wife still has it.
    Today is a gift; that's why it's called the present.
