5 Fun Holiday Gifts for Photographers

Looking for a great stocking stuffer for the shutterbug in your life? These gifts ideas are both fun and won’t break the bank!

Camera Lens Mugs
A fun way for your photographer to enjoy their morning cup of coffee. These lens mugs look and feel like the real thing….some models even zoom when twisted! Available in a variety of focal lengths (sizes) for both Canon and Nikon lovers. Price: $25-$35.


Retro Instant Photo Frames
Give your hi-res digital prints that classic Polaroid look. Perfect for those of us who remember the good old days, or for the hipsters on your “nice” list. Price: $5.99.


Cool, Funky Camera Straps
Let’s face it, most of us are using the neck strap that came with our cameras. I know I’m guilty! So why not stand out in the crowd and update that factory strap with something a whole lot more fun! Check out these designer straps from Mod. Each features a comfy backing plus a wide variety of eye catching colors and designs. Price: $35-$50


DSLR Piggy Bank
For photo enthusiasts like me, it seems like there is always just one more thing I need to buy. This year, I’ll gather up my loose change and with a little luck use this piggy bank to help pay for all of those new toys. Price $25.


iPhone Lens Filters
If the photographer on your shopping list loves “old school” looking photos, check out this new lens filter kit from Holga. The kit snaps onto your phone just like a case and offers 9 different lenses at the turn of a dial. Use them with the regular camera software, or try it with your favorite retro camera app! Price $25.
