5 Holiday Gifts the Photographer in Your Life Will Love

It’s that time of year again...ya know, those couple of weeks just before the holidays when you realize you haven’t bought a single gift, and you’ve got about 50 people on your list? Yeah, we’ve all been there. The truth is, holiday gift shopping isn’t easy, and if you’re not careful, it’ll turn you into a Grinch.

So, even though we have no clue what you should get your mother-in-law, we do have a few ideas that might help! Here are 5 of our favorite gifts for the photographer in your life (assuming you’ve already bought them a set of SnapIt Boards and a SnapIt Boards Carrying Bag!):

Instant Photo Printer - $99

Whether you’re buying for a pro or a newbie just getting their footing, this instant photo printer by KODAK is sure to be a hit! This tiny gadget will allow your photographer to print beautiful photos straight from their phone—an easy way to test editing styles, show clients how printed photos will look, or to create a photo wall in no time at all! If you’re looking to give a unique yet useful gift, this one’s yours. Buy it here.

Photo Backpack - $37

Backpacks aren’t exactly known for their looks, but this photo backpack by CADeN is making us think again. With room for a camera and multiple lenses, a laptop compartment, and a space for accessories, this backpack is both functional and stylish. It even has a USB charging port and a place for a tripod—it has it all! If your loved one is getting serious about their photography hobby or career, this gift is the perfect way to show your support. Check it out on Amazon.

Camera Lens Mug - $12

For those of you sticking to a budget this year, this mug might just be your cup of tea! Not only is this gift a crowd pleaser (it’ll definitely earn you a few laughs), but it’s as special as it gets and guaranteed to make your photographer feel remembered.

Adobe Creative Cloud Photography Plan - $120/year

If there are two things a modern photographer needs, they’re a camera and a photography plan from Adobe Creative Cloud. The plan consists of two software programs, Photoshop and Lightroom. While Photoshop manipulates, enhances, and creates images, Lightroom organizes and processes them—and both are essential in producing high quality photos! Trust us: When you get these for the photographer in your life, you’ll take their photography to the next level. Learn more on Adobe’s site.

Custom Photo Calendar - $29-$38

We saved this one for last because it’s maybe our favorite of the favorites: the gift that keeps on giving all year long! What better way to spread some Christmas cheer than to get your photographer a custom calendar of their greatest work—photos they’ll get to look at every day for the next year? Your thoughtfulness will without a doubt take them by surprise and remind them that their photos are true works of art. Photo calendars start at just $28 at mixbook.com.

 We hope this has helped you check at least one more gift off your list! Wanting to go even bigger with your gift-giving this season? Grab another SnapIt Board to pair with one or all of the gifts above.

Happy Holidays!
