Hey Santa! I’ve been a super good girl this year! Oh, you have no idea what to get me? Well, good thing I’ve got a list...

I scoured etsy for the best, coolest, and most useful and fun gifts that you can give to your photographer friends and family. Or, you can just buy them for yourself. I won't judge! (I already bought the velvet camera strap!!!)

Here’s my top 12 handmade Christmas gifts to give to your favorite photographer:
