HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE: For Photographers

Curious what to buy a certain photographer in your life? Or perhaps you just want inspiration for what goodies to sprinkle into your own holiday wish-list (’cause baby you’ve been good this year!) Either way, I’ve got you covered!

Here’s two photographer gift guides that will work with a variety of budgets: Under $60 (+ Stocking Stuffers!) & the ULTIMATE Gift Ideas for that extra-special someone. Each has been curated with the stylish, modern photographer in mind. You wont find any of the typical cheesy photographer gifts that almost immediately end up in the re-gift or donate piles. These are gifts the photographer in your life will love & appreciate!

  1. Fujifilm Instax Mini 9 Instant Camera ($60)

  2. SOOC tee or tank ($29)
    These shirts are both fun and stylish, with the tees fitting slouchy (great for a loose off-the-shoulder style) and the tanks with a cute racerback silhouette. I own two & love them!
  3. Art Books:
    Art books are always a fantastic gift! Here’s a few of my personal favorites:
    – STOPPERS: Photographs from My Life at Vogue ($48)
    For the person that loves both fashion and photography, look no further! This is an incredible, inspiring book featuring extrordinary editorials and images from legendary photographers: Anton Corbijn, Patrick Demarchelier, Steven Klein, Annie Leibovitz, Helmut Newton, Irving Penn, Mario Testino, Tim Walker, and Bruce Weber.
    Richard Avedon Portraits, or Similar: Richard Avedon Photographs ($53)
  4. Black Widow Spider Holster ($60)
    15% Discout Code: CHELSEANICOLE
    I love Spider’s camera belt system (great for getting gear off your shoulders!) I use a Spider Pro ($135) that I use with my Nikon D4, but we also own a Black Widow which is a great option for the SonyA7S, smaller bodies & personal cameras.
  5. Pinch Provisions Minimergency Kit ($18)
    This adorable emergency kit is chock-full of 21 little essentials, from breath freshener to hair spray toa  sewing kit (anything you might need!) I keep one of these in my camera bag for wedding days in case any little hiccups pop up, and it’s also handy for the photographer that travels a lot!
  6. Editing Day Coffee Mug – $17
    Because editing + caffeine go hand in hand! These mugs from Click & Blossom come in a variety of cute designs that I think would be the perfect gift for photographers.
  7. Customized Gifts
    If you want to go that extra mile, doing something custom is a great option! Here’s a couple ideas based on my FAVORITE gifts gifted to me from couples (yes, my couples are the BEST!) 

    • Hand-painted Ceramic Ornament, painted at the Pottery Shop in Las Vegas (similar HERE $20)
    • Hand-stamped metal bracelet (similar available HERE $55).

TIP: Customize it with a tagline, quote or anything that you think would make it special for the recipient! These were customized with ‘Vibrant Hearts Unite’ (my company tagline). Simple, yet so lovely, thoughtful and impactful. I’ve had them for years and every time I look at them they make me happy. :)

HAPPY SHOPPING!! :-) Anything I missed? Share your favorite gift ideas, or what’s topping your wishlist this season!
