Christmas is a week away.

One week. Eeeek!

I spend most of the holiday season preparing photo gifts for my clients. It is such a joy to review all my past jobs, prep holiday cards and send out framed prints. I have a lot of help throughout the year and I love to give my creative and photography assistant pals great gifts of appreciation. If you have a professional photographer or a photo buff or creative loved one on your shopping list, I am sure my photographer gift guide will have the right gift for you!

Here’s what is on my photographer gift shopping list:

gift guide photographer1. Black Rapid Camera Strap

Love my Black Rapid camera strap. After my trusted camera strap broke earlier this year, I purchased this camera strap in the floral pattern.  It’s ergonomic design is perfect for taking the weight of my camera off my neck. This one is super cute and girly with a floral pattern, but there are plenty of different styles for the guys too! Price: $61.95

2. Camera Tree Ornaments

I love these realistic, classic and digital camera ornaments! I want a set to pop on my tree each year. Price: $26

3. Editing day Mug from Click and Blossom

I love everything from Click and Blossom. It is the perfect resource just for photographers and creatives. This adorable mug is the perfect container for editing day (or any day) coffee and you know it will be filled time after time!  Price: $16

4. Shootsac

I have a Shootsac lens bag and it is one of my best friends!  It has six pockets and can hold your lenses for easy access on the job. I can keep my keys and phone close by and some extra batteries. You can customize and even get one that matches the Black Rapid camera strap! It is definitively a must have photographer gift! Prices start at: $179

5. Camera Lens Mug

Is it a lens? No! It is the cutest travel mug ever. I love this and don’t worry Nikon shooters…they make these mugs for you too 😉 Price: $23

6. Mantra Bands

I love these bands and their messages. They are inspiring not just for photographers but for anyone in your life. Give one or ten; or give each year and start a gifting tradition. Price: $25
