I am pretty sure a TO-220 package PNP transistor from Radio Shack would work just fine to either drive a relay or a low current load (~1A).
I know that DEI also makes a multi-function timer that might work for that purpose, but haven't tried it myself on that application.

Shoot me a PM if you need more info/help.
