All-Weather Writing Paper Notepad ($5)
This all-weather, water-resistant notepad is the perfect stocking stuffer for the adventure traveler—or city dweller in one of our nation's soggier regions. Pocket-sized, it's a better (and safer) choice than a smartphone for jotting down notes and idea when it's pouring rain outside. Originally designed for workers in the Northwest logging business, who know a thing or two about moisture.
