Holiday Gift Guide! 10 Great Gifts Under $100 For Photography Lovers

Ciao, Chessa! Holiday Gift Guide

Have you finished your holiday shopping?  No?  Good.  Me neither.

If there's a photography lover in your life any of these gifts would be more than welcome.  Trust me I'm a lawyer.  Some of them aren't exactly photo-related but pretty close...no?  For under $100 I think they are all pretty fantastic.

What are you asking for this year?

Plus, check out this holiday gift guide for photography stuff under $50!  And stay tuned because the next one is lots of fun...it's more of a wishlist than anything else but a girl's gotta dream, right?

And you want to see more, check out my Amazon store with some of my favorite things.

giftguide-apphrodite

Aphrodite USB Port.  I love this thing and not least of all because I am one of those people who has way too many wires hanging all over the place in my already too-small work space.  It's so clever and unexpected.  Yes, please! (via IFB)

giftguidecosmosbag 
Cosmos Leather Camera Bag.  Clearly this is not your average (ie. ugly) camera bag.  I love the rich color and all the great storage options inside.  (click on the link to see!)  You can carry your camera, a couple of lenses and even your laptop or iPad fit in here.

giftguide-fujiinstax
Fuji Instax.  Okay, it might be obvious by now, if you've read my blog before, that I LOVE my instant camera.  Nothing beats taking a photo and having it in your hands seconds later.  It's magic!  It's a nice nod to the past, plus, you won't have to worry about the image getting lost in the digital file vortex that is your computer hard-drive.

giftguide-ipadcase
Pendleton iPad case.  Not technically a photography-related gift unless you're like me and you have way too many photography apps but oh well.  My iPad needs a new dress.  Doesn't yours?

giftguideipadcase2
Rebecca Minkoff iPad case.  And speaking of new dresses, how about this LBD?

giftguidecamerabag
The Camera Day Pack.  This bag is adorable and perfect for every day.  Nothing fancy.  I like the purple one.

Bamboo cooling stand.  I've never, ever seen one this cool (ha! pun intended)

giftguidedigitalframe
Digital frame.  This is the gift that keeps on giving because you can constantly update it and add new pictures.  I got my husband one for Father's Day so he can look at photos of our family and our adventures from his desk at work.  He loves it.  I think it's time we had one for our home too, no? 

giftguideGAPUF  

Gary Fong Puffer Pop-Up Flash DiffuserSlip this puppy on to your dslr and say good-bye to that hideous washed-out look you get when there's just too much flash.  For less than 20 bucks it softens the light from your in-camera flash and it packs completely flat for storage in pretty much any camera bag (see above!) or even your back pocket. (via Photoshelter)

 giftguideHCBbook  

Henri Cartier Bresson: Photographer.  My dad introduced me to this master's work when I was way too young to appreciate it.  Now I cannot stop obsessing over it.  I need this book and so does whoever you love enough to buy it for!
