It's that time of year again and for those of you with a photographer on your gift list, the choices can be daunting; there's a lot of great gear out there! But never fear, don't lose your holiday cheer because SDC is here with our Holiday Gift Guide! We've made our own list and checked it twice, it's got the best, most giveable gifts that any photographer would love to unwrap. There's something for every budget, even a few stocking stuffers. So don't stress, there really IS a great gift for everyone!

For the photographer who wants to carry their gear in style, we love the Mini Messenger from Tenba. Sturdy and stylish, this gem holds an SLR body, 2-3 lenses and your flash attachment plus other smaller accessories. And speaking of gems, it comes in 7 colors! At just under $100, a great value! $93.95

For the travel photographer on your list, the Tenba Shootout Backpack is just the ticket! This backpack is roomy and comfortable enough for a long hike, yet sleek enough for a high end wedding. At just under $200, a terrific value.

Got a portrait photographer on your list? They're probably hoping for a LumiQuest location/portrait kit! Includes the Soft Box III, FXtra gel set and TWO Ultra Straps in one lightweight kit that can go anywhere, so put it under the tree! $94.95 price tag makes this kit a must!

We love the MeFoto DayTrip tripod. This small tripod is in two sections and can support up to 8.8 pounds making it a great choice for P&S, mirrorless and compact DSLRs. A single action ballhead, mini arca-swiss style plate, 8 sassy colors and carrying case with shoulder strap round out this great gift package! $119.00

From X-Rite comes this time (and headache) saver, the ColorChecker Passport. This handy tool fits in your bag and contains three targets so you can get your color just right. Also allows you to use any shot to create a profile, saving time in your workflow later.

For the photographer that likes to wear her/his heart (and love of photography) on their tees, these fun camera/photography themed tees and totes over at the The PhotoBrigade are iconic and cool. Pick one up for yourself when buying gifts!

For the pro or serious enthusiast, we love the Sigma 50mm 1.4 Art Lens. This new iteration of the 50mm captures subjects crisply with beautiful bokeh. Free the inner artist in your favorite photographer with this premium prime lens! $949.00

Good things DO come in small packages! Check out these stocking stuffers! 

 The LumiQuest Pocket Bouncer will fit in your pocket so of course it’s a perfect fit for a stocking! Soften harsh flash with this 90 degree angle redirect. The whole thing folds flat! $26.95
