Gifts for Photography Lovers -- the Random Awesome Stuff List

It has been a few months since I last updated this space, but it's time to fix that. How about I throw out some gift ideas for the photography lover in your life? These are all things that are suitable for ANY photography lover -- not just those who own DSLRs.

That right there is Photo-Opoly, a fun little Monopoly knock-off that makes use of your photos. It's available from lots of sellers on Amazon, but watch the shipping charges.

Fancy gadget time! It doesn't get much gadgetier than a watch that has a built-in camera. You'll also need to get a micro SD card to go with it, but still. FUN!

This would be a fun gift for grandma, your parents, or anyone who finds digital photos to be fun. It's like a digital frame, but it's an ornament for the tree.

If you know someone who takes Instagram and their iPhone 5 or 5s camera very seriously, you can help them step up their game with this little kit. It contains a tripod and a lens extensions that will help them zoom in closer and better than you can with any app. It's also available for an iPhone 4.

If the photography lover in your life is a beginner who aspires to get better, this book is a great one. It's full of great tips.

This book is for the DSLR lover in your life. It's a bit more advanced, but not crazy complicated. As a huge bonus, it comes with 6 hours of video training. You just scan the QR code on the book to get access to the videos.

This is seriously my new favorite photography-related t-shirt. It comes in a zillion colors and lets the wearer proudly gloat "I SHOOT IN MANUAL, BITCHES." I love it.

Another little thing I love is this USB drive that happens to be shaped like an awesome little Canon DSLR. Me likey.

I have posted this one before, but it's still awesome. It's a mug shaped like a camera lens. FUN!


If that isn't enough ideas for you, feel free to peruse some suggestions I've made in past years. Here are a few of those posts:

For some reason I can't see any of the photos and there aren't any links. I turned ad blocking off but that didn't help. Any ideas on how to fix it?

Cool stuff! The books look great (leaning towards the second one). Thanks!

@Molly -- I'm not sure... they are links from Amazon, so they should work! ARGH!
