NOT another "what camera to get" question; I already own a Canon EOS Rebel T3i. It's the other stuff I'm confused about! I received a $200 Amazon gift card, but I'm getting overwhelmed trying to decide what to get.

I do various searches on Amazon with "rebel t3i" in the keywords, as well as using those "this customer bought instead", and "you might also like...", but I can't seem to find....the extra stuff that isn't some crap filters kit.
What I -need- are some photography gear essentials, like a good set of cleaning tools. Other than that, I don't know....what are some good accessories I could get? What products (that I can find on Amazon!) of the non-lens variety can I use to make my photography better?
I'm into taking pictures of just about everything, from moths to skyscrapers. I'm traveling, currently living in Japan. I like to travel as light as possible, but I'm also pretty great at packing. I love to read, so your photography "Joy of Cooking" bibles are also welcome. My knowledge is spotty, in that I take some pretty good photos (links to my work in my profile) but I wouldn't know how or when or why to use a flash thingumajig if I even knew what I was talking about, and I get sidetracked by "you NEED this" photography blogs while I'm trying to shop.
I'd really like to reach that next stage of picture taking and I feel like this gift card is a chance to fill in a couple gaps on items or information I've somehow completely skipped by on. Help?
