So, I just realized that this year, no one in my family asked for gift ideas. What a bummer! I had some cool ones picked out that I wanted to share. Maybe they were already stalking my Pinterest boards? In case you’re still looking for a gift for me, or for someone like me (a camera-loving, 20-something, frequent traveler), here are a few of my favorites..


Christmas gifts for women

1. I realized earlier this year that I don’t have a decent snow boot. Now that I’m back in snow country, I’m searching for a cute, but warm, boot to wear once it (finally) snows. The 1964 boot by Sorel fits the bill. I like it in Taupe, but it comes in a variety of colors. Found at: DSW, REI, & more.

2. These have been floating around for a couple years, but I’ve never made the move to get one. I love the Washington one (I’d have a hard time deciding where to put the heart) and Germany (with the heart on Munich, of course!) Found at: Etsy

3. I already own this great world map watch from Urban Outfitters, but it’s one of my favorite accessories! It’s currently sold out, but check back often. It took a couple months before it was back in stock and I could order it. Found at: Urban Outfitters

4. Every year I ask my mom for a Kitchenaid stand mixer, and I never get it. Someday though, it’ll be mine. In cobalt blue, of course. Found at: Amazon, Macy’s, Bed Bath & Beyond, & more.

5. Lately, I’ve been wanting to try out tracking my steps. I’ve heard good things about the FitBit One. Found at: REI, Amazon, & more.



Christmas gifts for photographers

1. I came across this shirt recently and I feel like it needs to be a part of my wardrobe — stat. Because I need a little more photographer humor in my life. Found at: Forty Sixty Photo

2. This little tape dispenser lets everyone who visits your office know you’re a camera nerd, and is much cuter than the tape dispenser I currently have. And there’s nothing wrong with that! Found at: Storenvy

3. I love this little print of vintage cameras. It’s a bit quirky and fun, but it would look fantastic hanging up in my office. Found at: Etsy

4. Recently, I’ve realized that my camera strap situation isn’t working for me. And then I stumbled across this – the MoneyMaker from Holdfast Gear. Made by hand in the USA, these straps are made of premium leather. So far, I haven’t heard a single bad thing about them, except how much they cost. Found at: Holdfast Gear

5. This little Diana lens comes ready to mount on a Canon (or Nikon) body. Which means you can take fun little vintage-like photos with a digital camera! [Thanks to Elissa for pointing this baby out to me.] Found at: Photojojo
