Christmas Present


Christmas is not that far away which means the task of hunting for perfect gifts is also approaching. To get your grey cells thinking more creatively about the gifts you buy, we've put together a list of 16 quirky presents that are perfect for photographers. We've picked products that range in price and style so hopefully, there's something for everyone. Don't forget you'll need to wrap your gifts, too and what's more fitting for a photography fan than gift wrap that's camera themed


Lichfield Camera Lamp

Lichfield Camera Lamp


Camera's aren't just for the studio as this Lichfield camera lamp has a design that many photography fans will love.

'Trust Me I'm A Photographer' Socks

Trust me I'm a Photographer socks


Socks are a staple of the Christmas gift list but why settle for strips or indeed festive themes when you can buy a pair adorned with photography puns? These 'Trust me, I'm a photographer' socks are reasonably priced and should crack at least a small smile on your photography fan's face.

Camera Memory Box

Memory box


What better way to store photographs, gig tickets, napkins from favourite restaurants and more keepsakes than in a camera-themed memory box. Of course, the photographer in your life doesn't have to use it for this purpose as it could also be home to small photography accessories or even biscuits if you'd like.

Retro Camera Design Lunchbox 

Lunch box with Retro Camera Design


A camera themed lunchbox is the perfect tin for photographers to carry sandwiches in. It's dishwasher safe and could also be used as a general storage tin if you didn't fancy packing your lunch in it.

Vintage Camera Photo Album 

Vintage Camera Photo Album


You can almost smell the old pebbly leather on Galison's trompe l'oeil Vintage Camera portable photo album. This camera recalls the days when snapshots were glossy black and white square photos rather than something that's stored on your mobile phone. It's a classy little photo album that should charm photography fans.
