Okay, anyone interested in photography, or anyone who knows anyone interested in photography, knows that buying gear gets expensive. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t find fun gifts for your photographer friend. The best thing about these gifts is you need to know nothing more than the brand of camera they shoot with!
6 Awesome Gift Ideas for your Photographer Friend for $50 or Less!
You might not be able to afford the professional level camera lens, but these nifty little coffee mugs are a great alternative. Just make sure you know which brand your photographer friend shoots with !
Every aspiring photographer needs a place to save their pennies and what better place then a piggy bank shaped like that DSLR you can’t afford to buy for them.
Charms are an awesome way to go – even if they don’t own a bracelet they might be willing to attach the charm to their camera bag. After all it could bring luck and protection to their thousands of dollars of equipment beyond the padded walls.
Some of them can be a bit on the crude side, but if you know your photographer well enough these kinds of shirts will get a laugh.
5.) Bumper Stickers
Does your photographer friend own a car? Maybe they’d love to show people how much they love their craft? Makes for a great stocking stuffer.
If all else fails you can always get them a gift card to Amazon or any other camera shop. Sure it’s not going to buy them their next lens, but they might be able to get a filter or an SD Card or even use it towards their next major purchase.
Sure if you are independately wealthy you could go about purchasing a professional level lens or maybe the newest DSLR for your friend, but you better know a little about their style of photography and what they own, otherwise you may get them an expensive dust collector.
In the list above I wanted to present you with ideas that even a non-photographer would be comfortable buying for their photography obsessed friend. These gifts ideas are more for the fun side of giving then the serious gift, but sometimes that’s all your friend really wants anyway.
