Does anyone know of any product that allows you to secure and keep the Arduino and the shields all together so they will not separate or come off by the force of an impact or fall?

I want something well made that blends nicely instead of robber bands or wire ties.

Unfortunately, I don't 3D printer handy.  However, your suggestion is a good idea (if that doesn't exist, then make it yourself).

Use aluminum standoffs from pololu.com
http://www.pololu.com/product/1943
or nylon spacers
http://www.pololu.com/category/93/spacers
and then long #4-40 screws & nuts to secure the stack together.
Measure the distances between your boards and select suitable parts.

I'm already using nylon spacers (see attached photo), but unfortunately no all the shield holes line up with each other (e.g. the proto-shield  vs xbee-shield).  An adjustable nylon clip will be ideal, but I haven't see one yet so a 3D printer might be able to create one.
