21 Practical Gift Ideas for Photographers and Photography Bloggers is my new post for all of them wondering for a special gift!
Valentine’s Day is approaching and everyone is wondering what’s the best gift for a Photographer or a Blogger…
My boyfriend seems lost too and kept asking me what do I want for Valentine’s day to be sure not to be wrong… 😍 and I love him also for this!
When it deals with a gift to a passionate photographer or a blogger, ideas are not few and you can get lost without a guide. That’s why I decided to suggest 21 Practical Gift Ideas for Photographers and Photography Bloggers in this post!
To be honest, in your shoes I would be lost too thinking about a gift for a blogger, but being a photography blogger is a tip more, and being a pet photography blogger is much better… Lool!
Before I get started and list some of my absolute favourite practical and novelty gifts for bloggers, I just want to mention that this post contains affiliate links. In the event of a sale through such links (at no extra cost for you), I will receive a small commission that helps me keep this blog and up and running. Please read my disclosure about this.
So here there are 21 Practical Gift Ideas for Photographers and Photography Bloggers:
A Tool to Improve Photography
What about some tools and gadgets to improve your pet photography?
Photowhoa has a huge selection of tutorials and anything photography related.
It is very nice to work with PhotoWhoa.com. They have good technical support. On their site, you can find a lot of quality products. They have products for both professionals and beginners.
I highly recommend PhotoWhoa because is a real resource website for photographers of any level. As a writer and photographer I am very careful about quality of products for photographers and I can see how at PhotoWhoa they select the products with dedication and attention, and this is not something you can find everywhere.
I started buying at an affordable price this Bundle of Lightroom Presets, before starting producing mines with the Master Course they offer:
There’s nothing better than starting from premade and then try-it-yourself. Once you’ve mastered with premade Lightroom Presets and Photoshop Actions, you can try to produce something original on your own.
Don’t you have a Creative Cloud app? Well, this is a second idea for a good gift to a Pet Photographer and Blogger.
A Creative Cloud Plan
Adobe suite is the best solution for Photographers and it is a must-have to elevate your pictures to the next levels.

Gift a Creative Cloud plan for your photography business. I personally use Lightroom and Photoshop on my devices and they give me all the needed resources to improve my photography and easily share them on my Social Networks, from Instagram to Facebook.
A New Camera for Pet Photography
When dealing with cameras, everyone of us thinks that its a big deal and it’s needed a lot of money to buy a decent one to start in Pet Photography Business.
But it’s not like that! Believe me, you can also start from scratch with a cheap setup. Read my article on the Must-Have Pet Photography Setup here.
You can also start from refurbished products: they’re still in good condition and can provide you with quality pictures also spending less than a new one.
And if you’re a Photography Blogger, no matter how great your writing is, how amazing your ideas are or how many readers you have, it’s hard to keep up with all the other blogs out there if you don’t have stunning photos.
When starting out, a point and shoot camera might do the trick (I’ve been there). But if you want to take your blog to the next level, a DSLR camera can make a world of a difference.
So if you know a blogger that’s just starting out or wants to go full time, the best possible gift you can get them is a digital camera.
If you’re not an Amazon fan, you can also find some good deals at KEH store. They have amazing deals on DSLR cameras and other photography equipment.
Do you have an old camera to turn into cash? The KEH Camera Store can do it for you. Click here to know how they can.
Photography Props for Studio Photographers and Bloggers
Amazing photos are not only required on your blog if you want to “make it”, but social media plays a huge role in spreading the news about your little corner of the internet.
And as Instagram is the fastest growing platform of this year, you might want to get a piece of that. Because we don’t all have the perfect Instagramable lives, photo props can make a huge difference!
WHERE YOU CAN FIND IT: Amazon has a great selection of backdrops for pet photography and photography equipment. You can also get creative with items you have around the house, buy cute notebooks from Blogging Mode or check your local gift shops for unique items.
T-Shirts for Fashionable Pet Photography Bloggers
My friend Ana made me discover these cute T-shirts that can be used also for funny pictures to post on your Blog and I immediately bought my favorite one:
If you want to grab yours, then don’t lose time and make yourself or your blogger friend a special gift, using my special discount here above!
A Blog Hosting Solution
Another good idea is to gift a whole year of Blog Hosting solution. And why don’t think about using the best platform ever, like Bluehost?
If you want to start a profitable blog on a serious hosting, don’t go for the free solutions: it doesn’t worth it! And in this article I also explain you why, just in case you’re wondering…
The Bluehost solution is the best and the cheapest one, with plans starting as low as $3.95/mo.
They offer WordPress solutions with a free domain included, and you can check from here if the name you’ve chosen is available for registration:
Desk Equipment and Office Items
Bloggers tend to spend a lot of time on their chair (and photographers are the same, with their workflows), so what’s best than items for their office moments?
And I can’t think of a better gift but one that would make our lives easier when we have to spend hours in the same place.
You can find them on Amazon, or also on my friend’s Ana Blogging Mode store, where she has some very nice laptop sleeves to choose from. If you go for her shop, don’t forget to use this link to grab $5 discount on your first order!
Mugs for Bloggers’ and Photographers’ Coffee
And here it is the perfect gift for a coffee lover like me!
I bought mines at Blogging Mode. They have an entire collection of quirky (yet practical) mugs that range from blogging humor, to daily inspiration for photography bloggers or entrepreneurs, these mugs make the perfect personalized gift for any online friend!
You can shop for these mugs (and many more personalized items for bloggers) over at Blogging Mode and USE THIS LINK to get $5 off your first order (when you order of minimum $25).
A Blog Theme for the Finest Pet Photography Blogger
If you or your friend have bought a hosting solution, you will also need the best theme ever for your Blog.
I personally choose a simple and powerful template, Ashe, that is WordPress ready and SEO ready. This theme helps me having a easy to visit blog without delaying my visitors.
Ashe theme comes with different layouts, so you will be sure to be original. You can also customize the theme as you like.

SEO Software for Pet Photography Bloggers
Traffic Travis is a software designed to help online businesses boost their website traffic. It is an all-in-one tool for search engine optimization, pay-per-click monitoring and general market research.
Struggling to get traffic? So was my good friend, Aidan. Let me tell you his story.
Aidan made a blog in the fitness niche. He was blogging just for fun.
But then he started to get more visitors from Google. So he threw up some affiliate offers.
And guess what?
It worked. He was making money – a few thousand dollars each month. So he continued blogging, and he eventually quit his job.
But then suddenly, one day, he lost all of his google rankings. And all of his traffic. And all of his income. Overnight.
So he quit blogging, and quit affiliate marketing, and took up his day job again.
Around that time, I met him through a friend. I heard his story, and I knew I could help him. So I showed him my secret traffic-getting tool:
I convinced Aidan to try again. He reopened his blog, and used Traffic Travis Pro to increase his rankings in Google. And guess what?
He now makes double the money he made before. Oh, and he quit his day job – again. But this time, for good 🙂 isn’t that awesome?
