Those cheap plastic pens with caps make great travel containers for your fine crochet hooks. Just remove the "pen" part and pop in your hook. No more poking through your bag and getting lost.

The large containers for crystal lite and such are a great holder for crochet hooks and nuts and bolts. The bottle of wine holders that everyone is selling is super for knit needles.
Tooth brush holders from the Dollar Tree is really cool. I also used a clear box that held all of them when I was traveling. The glass case is a real coup, too. I especially like boxes with lids, as you don't have to "tip them out" and risk dropping them. Another good one especially for smaller hooks is cigar tubes, either the plastic or metal kind. Hope that helps.

I like to crochet while traveling and I've found the perfect container for storing my many crochet hooks is in an empty eyeglass case. These cases fit perfectly inside my purse or my car's glove box. A regular size case will fit 8 or 10 hooks, but a tiny (reading glass) case will hold 2 or 3 hooks and this smaller size is great for carrying hooks in your purse!
