If you have a shutterbug in your life, you’ll love these gifts for photographers. Personalized gifts are always my favorite to give because they show that I put a lot of thought into them. It’s easy to accidentally wait until the last minute to start shopping, though. If you’ve found yourself short on time and you have a photographer friend in your life, pick a gift (or two) from the list and you’ll be good to go.
Best Gifts for Photographers
Anything that is functional is always at the top of my wishlist, but sometimes a cute mug does the trick as well. As a photographer myself, I'm a bit partial to a few of the gifts on this list, especially the camera necklace.
There are so many gift options, it's going to be tough to choose. From scarves to mugs to jewelry, photography gifts are everywhere. No matter which gifts you give your friend who loves photography, they'll be happy that you thought of them.
For the fashionista photographer in your life, I love these Lina Lily Vintage Camera Scarves, available in light gray and other colors as well. They're lightweight so they can be worn pretty much year round, which makes them super functional… that's always a plus. These camera scarves are a safe option when you don't know your friend's size or fashion style, especially because they're available in such neutral colors.
Mugs for Photographers
Many times, photographers run on coffee for days at a time to finish a shoot, editing, and delivery of their beautiful photos to clients. Fun, cute coffee mugs that say things like “I Shoot People” and “Oh Snap!” are perfect for the humorous, coffee-drinking photographer in your life.
Photography Jewelry and Accessories
This is the necklace I was talking about earlier. It's super cute. Look at it: Miniature Camera Necklace. Another option is a Mini Camera Keychain. Camera jewelry is a no-brainer gift for the shutterbug in your life.
Quirky and Cute Gifts for Photographers
Probably one of my favorite gifts on this list, this Camera Lens Coffee Mug comes with a USB flash drive, making it the perfect gift set. Equally as quirky and cute is this pen/pencil storage “camera”. The mug is different from regular coffee mugs because it's designed like an actual camera lens. Not only would this gift make a great conversation piece, it is cute for pictures, too. Hello, Instagram!

Unique Gifts for Photographers
If you’re looking for unique gifts that your photographer friend doesn’t already have, look no further than a set of film canister salt and pepper shakers. Photographers love to talk about their photography. What better way to start a conversation than over salt and pepper shakers?
Another unique but functional gift is this SD Card Reader for their phone. Trust me when I say every shutterbug will love it. I can't count how many times I wished for an SD card reader only to remember I forgot mine at home.
