Happy December! The gift giving season is officially upon us. You're probably here because you need to find a perfect gift for that photographer or photography lover in your life and have no idea where to start. Well you're in luck! Read on and find a gift for every photog on your list this season.
For the pin lover
Who doesn't love an enamel pin? Perfect for a jacket, bag, hat, or whatever!
L: For the Instagram and emoji lover, check out Valley Cruise Press' camera emoji pin.
R: For the minimalists out there, get them Reppin Pin's simple and silver camera pin.
For the budding photographer
When budding photographers ask me what they can do to take their skill to the next level, I always recommend getting a 50mm 1.8 lens. A wonderfully versatile lens, it will allow them to get beautifully blurred backgrounds for portraits, and is wide enough for street photography and some landscapes. Available for just about any camera model and usually under $200.
For the coffee lover
The perfect gift for the late night editor or early morning shooter - make it extra special with their favorite tea or a coffee gift card! Check out Magazine Mama's Etsy for this sassy Oh Snap! mug, plus many other photog-centric products.
For a personal touch
Available in almost every color, these super stylish and personalized "Dreamer" camera straps from FOTO is the perfect gift for the quote lover or monogram addict.
For the film shooter
#filmisnotdead, especially not with this film role pin from Explorer's Press. Get it as a stocking stuffer for your favorite photog friend who spends their days in the darkroom.
For the bag collector
Make any bag into a camera bag! Porteen Gear makes completely customizable camera bag inserts that will protect camera gear on the go with padded walls and waterproof cloth. Holds up to one camera body with lens attached plus an additional lens.
For traveling in style
Does your photog want a new bag designated for their camera gear? Choose one of these chic and minimal designs that double as a purse from GATTA (L), or something more multifunctional like the backpacks from VINTA (R).
