Lifesystems Glow Marker

These glow markers (€5.99) contain photo-luminescent crystals which absorb light and emit a luminous glow in the dark. With a loop to attach them to your losable items like keys, torches etc, they're brilliant for finding things in a dark environment. They're also great for camping, or any other situation where you might struggle for light.
