The New York International Gift Fair is the bi-annual industry gathering for the gift industry. The tradeshow is THE place where 35,000 attendees from all over the globe come to see both the latest trends if gifting as well as to get a look at what the “must-have” gifts will be in the coming months.

While there’s literally over a half million square feet devoted to all types of gifts. The Gift Gurus hit the NYIGF floor in search of fun, unique and ultimately very “gift-able” products from the countless gifts on hand. Here’s one I love:

The Gift: Flip & Tumble 24-7 Shopping Bags ($10)

The Scoop: These everyday reusable totes are designed to roll up and fit into any bag you use, so you can keep them stashed away 24-7, without having to remember to bring along an extra bag. While consumers are trying to make more of an effort to eliminate plastic bags, most of the times we get caught up in our day to day lives and forget to bring a tote to the store or while running errands.

These 24-7 bags from Flip & Tumble are extremely durable and can hold about 3 half gallons of milk. The weight capacity holds up to 35 pounds, (that’s strong enough for a bowling ball or two!).

From bag to ball in a rainbow of fun colors, it rolls into a compacted ball about the size of a peach. Its versatile shoulder design also works for everything from day tripping on travels to bringing your lunch to work. The 24-7 bag is eco-friendly and spares about 1,000 bags in its lifetime.

A Great Gift For: Eco-friendly people always on the go and busy families that go grocery shopping often.
