Find just the right gift for your shutterbug!

Do you have a photography buff in your life? Me too!

Although I’ve never been a good photographer (flashback to my son’s First Snow pics, which all had my mitten in the corner) I do know what photographers like.

I have several photographer friends and family members and here are some photographer-approved ideas:

Here are the top 20 gift ideas to get your photographer:

1. Photo-Themed Ideas

Most people who are photographers for a profession or a hobby love to be reminded of their passion for the art. Here are some themed gifts.

I love this gift! This is a camera travel mug. It's so darling and I've actually purchased this for a friend. She loves to drink hot tea and I see her using this all the time! Mug is available in black or white. Click on the cute mug to learn more.

If you know a photographer, then you know that they are always carrying more equipment than you can possibly imagine! Help 'em out with a carrying case.

5. Darling Camera Necklace

Ooo! This is a cute one. I actually bought this also for another friend and I can tell you, it's very cute! The camera charm has a crystal in the center for the lens and it comes with an 18-inch snake chain! Since it's black, it goes with everything and almost every time I see my girlfriend, she's wearing this- and I've run into her when we're out- she didn't even know I'd see her! This gift is a home run!

6. Photographer's Tee Shirt

This tee shirt actually looks cute on men and women, but I thought it would be good to have at least a few things on here for men. Photography can be a strenuous hobby- hiking, stretching, crouching- all common activities photographers endure in their effort to get the best shot. Comfortable clothing is invaluable. This great tee shirt not only shows their love of their hobby or profession but it also looks stylish and is comfortable for a long day of shooting.

7. Photographer's Vest

I mentioned before but I'll write it again: Photography involves a LOT of stuff. And, it's expensive stuff! Here are some great things to help the photographer in your life.

This is a great vest! Photographers always seem to need four hands. However, since that's not possible, this vest is the next best thing. This vest has many pockets so a photographer has lots of space for lenses, lids, SD Cards and other gear. Available in LOTS of colors and it's machine washable!

This mural is a great gift for a photographer who has a studio or a person whose hobby is photography to decorate their home. This item is a great gift in any environment.
