Additional suggestions:

Perhaps a cordless shaver that runs on solar energy and gives that perfect three-day-old-looking shave?
Otherwise how would Aragorn keep his beard Just So?

And how about Elf Air-Cushion insoles, insert them in your shoes and you can run across the top of the snow, run tirelessly across Rohan... Aragorn must use them too, but perhaps they don't come in Gimli's size. Clearly the orcs use them, so perhaps Gimli just left his at Parth Galen. Or they haven't been properly marketed to the Dwarf population.  -  sarahstitcher
