Gift Guide Top 10
These are a
few of my favorite
(photography -related) things…
Below, is a roundup of my photography gift go-tos. Each item I recommend has withheld the test of time and is a personal favorite.
- The Canon Rebel
A fantastic camera to learn photography or just use to capture & document life! I still have mine and use it often. Perfect for tweens, teens, and adults! You can buy new (linked) or look on Facebook Marketplace for a used one! If you purchase used, make sure to ask the shuttercount (should be 60,000 or less).
- The “Nifty Fifty” Lens
I highly recommend purchasing this lens if you are interested in learning how to take better photos. It is much easier to learn on a prime lens verses the zoom lens the camera comes with. This is a great lens for the price and produces beautiful Bokeh.
A 25 page guide put together by me to learn basic photography. You’ll learn about how to use light, composition rules, and other elements to create a strong photo. Use code HALFOFF through Nov 30th to get 50% off (for a total of $8.50!)
- Photography Idea Cards
A fantastic stocking stuffer for any photography enthusiast!
- The Instax
My kids LOVE these! They are fun, easy to use and the film makes a great stocking stuffer. They say you take photos of what you love. This reason alone makes this such a fun gift – you get to see the world through your children’s eyes as they document what they’re into during different seasons of their life.
- A Photo Album so the Instax Photos Don’t Get Lost!
Take it from me – you’re going to want a place to store these! Otherwise they end up in all the nooks and crannies of your home. Plus, it’s so fun for the kids to have a book to look back at all the fun memories they are creating!
- Kidamento Camera
The coolest camera for young ones! Great for kids ages 3-7. Award-winning and highly recommended!
- Pinhole Press Memory Game
The BEST! A customizable memory game. I’ve purchased this multiple years, adding to the game with new memories. Our family loves playing this game of memory while literally taking a trip down memory lane.
- Personalized Board Books
A great, interactive gift for your toddlers! And there is no limit to what you can make with these! When my kiddos were young, I made each of them a personal A-B-C book, taking photos of their favorite items to create a book of the alphabet. Now we have them tucked away with their baby items as a special momento. For a simpler idea, you could make a book of family members or your favorite highlights from the year.
- Coffee Table Book of Your Family
I’ve been using Blurb to create a book of our year since 2014. The print quality & the price are unbeatable! Everyone looks forward to this gift as we reminisce & look at all the memories we created. If you are looking for a quicker option, I suggest Artifact Uprising or Chat Books.
Thanks for being an incredible part of my business journey. Your support means the world to me –
