With the holiday season fast approaching, you might be starting to get your gifts together for family and friends. Some people are easy to shop for, and others, well, you try your best. But if you’ve got a photographer on your list this Christmas, then we’ve got plenty of ideas for you. Check out a few of the best gifts you can snag for your New Jersey photographer this year.

Birds of New Jersey Field Guide

Birds are a pretty constant source of material for many photographers, and doesn’t it make sense to know what you’re taking a picture of? Written by Stan Tekiela, the Field Guide features 122 species of New Jersey birds, all organized by color. So next time your photographer friend snaps a picture of a bird, but doesn’t know what it is, all they have to do is flip to the section of the book that corresponds with its color. The book contains plenty of facts, comparisons, and even range maps for help identifying birds.

Waterproof Canvas Backpack

You can’t control the weather, but you can make sure that the photographer in your life keeps his or her camera safe and dry when they’re out on a hike. This bag contains a padded insert to keep a camera safe, but the insert can also be removed if they’d like to use it as a normal backpack. The canvas look is a classic style, and it can go from the trails to the classroom without feeling out of place.

Camera Lens Mug

What photographer wouldn’t want a thermos that looks like a camera lens? This one is a stainless steel, insulated tumbler that keeps their favorite beverage warm or cold while they’re on the go. You can choose from different lens replicas, ranging from 11 to 16 oz. depending on what type of lens you choose. Perfect for nature photographers who are spending hours outside in the fall and winter.

Giotto’s Rocket Blaster Dust-Removal Tool

It can be tricky trying to clean dust from lenses and other sensitive surfaces on a camera. Luckily, this dust-removal tool makes it a breeze. The silicon rubber provides a nearly continuous stream of air, and the one-way valve on the bottom brings in clean air and won’t redistribute dust. Dust has a knack for finding its way into just about every crack and crevice, but it’s not a problem with this little tool.


There’s nothing like being able to see clearly to help your photographer line up the perfect shot. Glasses can be especially frustrating for a photographer—they need them to see properly, but they get in the way while trying to look through the camera. So give the photographer in your life a gift that they can appreciate year round—the gift of clear, excellent vision with LASIK.

If you’re thinking of giving your favorite New Jersey photographer the gift of LASIK, then call EyeCare 20/20 today and set up a consultation so we can talk about your options.
