The Best Photography Gift Ideas for 2017

Photography can quickly become an expensive hobby, which means photographers will always appreciate a camera gift.

But why stop there? Why not buy a photography gift for a child who’s showing promise – or to kickstart their creative juices?

Or how about creating a personalised album for the grandparents – a wall calendar with family photos, for example.

With Christmas approaching all too quickly, you’re probably already madly scribbling ideas for Christmas gifts. Here are some of our top picks for the best camera gifts for your loved ones in 2017.

1. A Memory Card to Keep the Good Times Rolling

One of the biggest pickles photographers get into is running out of space on their memory cards. Any photographer would appreciate a backup card – in fact, there’s no such thing as too many memory cards!

Make it worthwhile by getting a top-quality card that will broaden your photographer friend’s capabilities. The Lexar PRO SDXC Memory Card, for example, gives them 128GB of storage and the ability to shoot in 3D, Full HD and 4K video.

Just make sure the memory card is compatible with the recipient’s camera before you buy!

2. A Tripod to Capture Every Moment

A tripod is a must-have accessory for serious photographers, but even enthusiasts or total amateurs will love the novelty of a tripod like the Joby GorillaPod.

Great for birdwatchers, night photographers, and travellers, the tripod is a simple present that will get plenty of use.

3. A Camera Bag for the Everyday Photographer

Photographers can’t really build their camera kit without a quality camera bag to carry it all in! A camera sling bag or pouch is a great option for street photographers, while a more heavy-duty backpack is a necessity for the serious photographer.

The gift of a camera bag is a great option for photographers who are always on the go – whether they’re landscape or wildlife photographers or non-stop travellers.

We love the Canon Legria Crumpler Bag or Lowepro’s range of backpacks. Shop our array of camera bags, cases, and housings today.

4. An Instant Camera for the Younger Generation

Despite the huge growth in technology and the instant viewability of photos on digital cameras, people love the novelty of a camera that produces real-time prints.

These days, instant cameras come with far more features than their ancestors, but at the end of the day, it’s the instant print that everyone loves.

Give an instant camera as a Christmas gift and we guarantee the first box of film will be gone before the day is out, to be replaced with nostalgic photos of a fun-filled day. For this reason, it’s a good idea to buy a package that includes at least one pack of film!

6. Create Memories with Personalised Photo Creations

Shopping for family members who live overseas or for the grandparents who already have everything? Personalised photo creations are a much-loved idea.

Through our Print Shop, you can order a range of personalised photo gifts, such as mugs or t-shirts. If you’re looking for something really special, create your own photobook that documents the family’s year together. A high-quality canvas of the grandkids is also a popular choice.
