This is a gift for the most explorer photographers, who always carry the whole equipment and like to make photographic escapes, travel, night photography or go out to capture the most impressive images of all kind of weathers. If you are one of these people or are looking for a gift for such a person, a good backpack is the perfect gift.
Not every photographer needs a tripod, you can live without it, unless you want to do night or long exposure photography, or self-portraits! In that case, yes, you need one. To photograph the night, the stars, the night landscapes, the silky effect of the water, the movement, etc., it is essential to have one.
Yes, a drone can be a fantastic surprise for someone who loves photography. Photographing from an impossible perspective is a real seducer. Ideal for lovers of heights, landscapes and remote-controlled pots and pans. Now there is a great variety of drones and a wide range of prices to choose from.
In my case, I love to hold a book in my hands and leaf through it, so maybe that’s why I think that a photography book is also the perfect gift. There are many to choose from, depending on the subject you are looking for. Some of them are an absolutely must have for photographers!
For newcomers to photography that’s one of the best gifts you can get. It will help you understand photography much quicker and easier than on your own and it will also save you from many headaches!

- GoPro Camera
The most adventurous, extreme sport photographers and water sport photographers have always a GoPro camera on their wish list. Once again, there are all kind of types and prices to choose from!
- Hard disk
It’s the best gift for those who have millions of photos in their storage memory and no longer have space on the computer.
- Extra battery
Ideal for those who always complain that the battery life is too short, or that at the most inopportune moment the camera turns off. I admit that it has happened to me many times, so I think they shouldn’t be missing from this list.
Personalizing your camera strap is a necessity that comes with time. Either for comfort or for aesthetics, but there comes a moment in the life of every photographer in which the strap that comes with the camera does a little damage to the neck.
- Memory Card Case
Not suitable for those who only have one card. But it’s a very handy gift for those with several cards or the most disorganized and absent-minded, who would need a memory card case to put some order in their lives.
- Memory Card
If a photographer is always complaining about the lack of memory for their photographs and even had to come to the point of erasing photos before being able to shoot, then the perfect gift can be a spare memory card.
- Camera Flash
For the more nocturnal photographers, for those who have already mastered the natural light and want to try with other light sources, or those who like to photograph in studio or achieve creative images with the flash, or play with speed, a camera flash can be a much-appreciated gift. We have many different types of camera flashes on our SIGMA website with information that will help you find what you are looking for!
- Camera Case
Some people have a compact, an EVIL or a reflex with an objective to fit in their bag. They don’t need anything else, they wear light equipment and that’s enough for them. The thing is that it is not recommended to carry the camera bumping into keys, mobile phones or any other object inside the bag. A case becomes a necessary element to protect the camera of any kind. There are many types, and you can find the best one for you on our website.
- Cleaning kit
Since we’re talking about camera care, there should always be a proper cleaning kit among a all the photographer’s accessories.
- Window light
A Window light is a great idea for those who want to become professional photographers, lovers of studio portraits, new-born photography, and any photographer that wants to experiment with new things!
Those who love capturing landscapes and try as hard to get the most amazing photograph of the sky, will be glad to have a filter that gives life to their camera. Important when buying one: that the diameter matches that of the lens.
We hope we could help you with this list and give you some good ideas of what to get the photographers in your life! We guarantee you that you will make them the happiest photographers with any of these presents.
