Gifts for Photographers
Whether the recipient is an amateur snapper or a seasoned pro, our handpicked list of gifts for photographers will help you find the perfect present for those who are gifted behind the camera. From essential camera accessories like photo printers and tripods to sentimental keepsakes like personalised photo frames and notebooks, we’ve got the ideal gift for those who shoot life through a lens.
Affordable, lightweight, and weatherproof, camera bags are a convenient and efficient way for photographers to carry their camera gear and personal items. Available in a range of hard-shell and soft varieties, camera bags are an essential photographer’s companion whether they’re capturing the wonders of nature or the city’s bright lights.
While smartphones can’t quite match high-spec cameras for their image quality and performance, they’ve certainly come a long way in recent years. There are some mightily impressive smartphone lenses available that offer smartphone snappers the chance to level-up their mobile photography. And while they can be quite pricey, you’re paying for some quality kit that will transform blurred landscapes into high-res masterpieces.
A personalised photo album is the perfect gift to allow the photographer in your life to collect and compile their best shots. For something heartfelt and sentimental, go for a personalised family photo album. All of our personalised family photo albums can be customised with dates and names of family members.
Tripods are essential for photographers who want to use natural light to enhance their images. They’re versatile, too, as they can be used for everything from long exposure landscape shots to self-timed family portraits.
Our selection of personalised wall art presents a gallery of unique gifts for the photographer in your life. Adorn their walls with their pièce de résistance, or opt for a multi-photo upload framed print to bring your most cherished memories together to life.
Floating tripod mount
Floating tripod mounts are perfect for those who capture action shots while they’re engaging in high-octane activities like canoeing, abseiling, and diving. Away from the action, they’re equally adept at capturing group shots or underwater selfies!
Camera slide strap
Camera slide straps are a fantastic, versatile gift for photographers that can be put to immediate use. Hugely popular with amateurs and professionals alike, they’re super quick to adjust even while being worn.
Personalised photo frames are the perfect gift for photographers who like to display their photos in their own home. Our selection of frames includes wooden, chalkboard, stone, and contemporary finishes, so you can pair their art with a suitable style.
Portable photo printer
Portable photo printers are the gift that keeps on giving, letting the most impatient photographers get their photos printed wherever they are. Unlike cameras that print directly, like Polaroids, using a portable photo printer with a digital camera means that you can print a copy for however many people you like.
Portable USB chargers are brilliant for photographers who wander as they offer a pocket-sized power supply on the go. This is a great gift for photographers who like to venture into nature for long sessions of shooting, and you can pick up a relatively large capacity portable battery and charger for less than £30.
Immortalise their favourite self-taken photo by uploading it onto a clock to gift to them. Upload the photo file, crop it how you want, and we’ll do the rest. They’ll be able to see their own work whenever they check the time!
An often-overlooked photography accessory, notebooks enable snappers of all levels to make creative notes and jot down concepts, as well as recording more practical information like film settings to remember. Our range of photo upload notebooks allow you to personalise your choice with a photo, a name, and a special message, so feel free to make it as cheeky or sentimental as you like!
Our ‘World’s Greatest Photographer’ personalised cushion features a clean, minimalist design and an attractive green and white colour scheme. A customised name or nickname up to 25 characters will make it theirs, and it’s a great choice for any photographers who like to relax after a long day behind the viewfinder.
Upload one of their own masterpieces onto a premium mug, which we offer in both standard and heat changing varieties. They can then use their personalised mug while they’re editing, uploading, or even taking snaps around the house.
