The holiday season is upon us and shopping for gifts can be hard. Especially coming up with holiday gifts for photographers. I’ll apologize in advance, but we’re the WORST to shop for. This year I decided to save ideas and things I found while shopping Amazon that I thought would be great for photogs and make a mega guide to holiday gifts for photographers.
Let’s make one person on your list a breeze to shop for so you can get back to enjoying the holiday season with less stress! No matter what you get that special someone, they’re going to love it, because it came from you. However, I’m going to try and make it a little easier with this holiday list.
First up, one of the funniest gifts that I love for photographers, a lens mug. Yep, that’s right. A camera lens that’s a literal thermos. WHAT A VIBE.
Next up, not as fun, but a memory card holder. As photographers, especially me, we carry so many memory cards to make sure we get all the pictures. This would be a great option to help keep organized.
One of my all time favorite things ever, that I literal use all the time. Bluetooth speakers, perfect for cleaning the house and staying motivated, and even more importantly, taking on shoots. I love bringing my speaker with me to engagement sessions, bridals, etc. to get my couple excited and pumped to have fun and get some great pictures. It has turned some of my sessions into dance parties and I’m not even mad about it. It also helps getting the couple to open up and get more comfortable around you as a photographer when they see you having fun!
Remember all those beautiful detail shots you got at your wedding with your wedding rings, and invitations displayed beautifully? These are a game changer for those pictures, it brings in your wedding colors and looks super elegant. Another great idea for any photographer on your list!
Next, a fun accessory for them to wear, or even to use at photoshoots. A trendy and fun hat. These fedora hats have been such a big hit this year and look gorgeous on brides, or are perfect for the photographer whose running late to a session and wants to look put together (been there!).
As photographers we spend hours, and I mean hours editing. Investing in blue light glasses has saved me from headaches and tired eyes. Totally a game changer, and worth the $15!
Another fun and unique gift idea, a camera lens keychain. I’m all about the more unique and quirky gift ideas, and this would make my DAY if I received this as a gift. So thoughtful and a perfect holiday gift for photographers, they’ll appreciate it, trust me.
Another fun gift idea that I have and use at all of my weddings, a velvet ring box. Great for those detail shots like we talked about before, and make everything look so elegant and fun.
I always love being able to personalize or customize something as a gift for someone. It makes it so special and unique to them. This personalized leather camera strap is such a fun idea and another perfect holiday gift for photographers.
Last but not least, the ultimate camera bag. This bag has tons of pockets and spots for all their photography stuff while keeping it all organized and safe. Making shooting a breeze!
Let me know what you think, and if you have any other ideas for your photographer friends. Looking to book a session with me? Let’s chat!
