Gift Ideas for Travel Photographers | 2024


In the age of social media, travel photography is everywhere. As we mention in our best travel photography camera guide, we wish we could recommend just one camera and it’s much the same with gift ideas; the best cameras and gifts are going to be different for all different people. 

This gift guide contains ten interesting and useful products under £100 that are certain to make your or your recipient’s travel-photography life much easier. But rest assured, if you need any help with your decision-making, you can give us a call or drop us an email.

We also have a couple of guides for the best cameras for travel photographers and influencers!


Peak Design Capture Camera Clip V3 with Standard Plate (Black)

£69.00 View

Peak Design’s Capture Clip is a camera quick-release that can be attached to your belt or the shoulder strap of a photography bag. It allows you to have quick access to your camera without having to put your camera away, something that will be super-useful for those exploring and you need to snap a shot!


Peak Design Leash - Midnight

£43.00 View

Most cameras come with a neck strap but they’re usually uncomfortable and not particularly durable. The Peak Design Leash is a lightweight and unobtrusive neck strap that features an intelligent design for quick detachment, and integrated adjustment loops for quick changes and is the perfect combination of function with style.


Mackie mRING-6 – 6 inch Battery Powered Ring Light with Selfie Stick/Stand and Remote

£55.00 View

With smartphone cameras being so advanced these days, travel photography doesn’t have to be shot using a mirrorless or compact camera. Many people use their phones to capture images of the world around them. This Mackie mRING-6 is the perfect partner for travel photographers, vloggers, content creators and more. It comes with a convertible light stand/selfie stick that you can use to get great selfies or photograph different perspectives.


JOBY GorillaPod Custom 1K Kit

£49.95 View

There are lots of travel tripods out there that aren’t all that travel-friendly and if they are, they cost a lot. The Joby’s GorillaPod Custom 1K Kit is the perfect option. It’s compact, lightweight and flexible. It can be used like a traditional tripod and wrapped around objects while securely holding your phone or camera. This means you can attach it to branches, handrails or anything you can reasonably wrap around! This version can support devices up to 1kg so is ideal for travel photography cameras.


Vanguard Alta Battery and Memory Card Case - Large

£14.99 View

Another very useful accessory is a card case. Keeping your equipment clean and safe is important and this case not only keeps your kit in good condition, it allows you to organise your things and streamline your workflow.


SanDisk Extreme PRO 128GB 200MB/s UHS-I V30 SDXC Memory Card

£38.00 View

Maybe they already have a memory card case - perhaps you could gift a new memory card? 

The SanDisk card is designed to capture high-resolution still images and videos and is compatible with almost every camera. This one has a large capacity and a fast read/write speed making it ideal for a range of subjects while you’re out on your travelling adventures. Of course, there are many other options that have varying capacities and speeds, all of which you can check out here.


WD My Passport 2TB BLUE

£88.00 View

Backing up your photos is very important. It’s all too common for SD cards to corrupt or your computer breaks and your photos are lost forever (despite your best efforts to look after your kit). This is obviously a terrible thing to happen for any discipline but it just seems to hit home a little more with travel photography. You’ve been away exploring and documenting the world and then you lose all the images you took. Back up your images, folks. Or, make sure that friends or family back up their images.


Hollyland Phone Holder

£13.00 View

Using your phone for travel photography vlogging or filmmaking is completely acceptable. In some cases, phones offer better-looking images than some digital cameras! So, with that in mind, a smartphone holder is a great gift choice. This holder allows you to mount your phone on a tripod for sturdy and stable images. This one also has an integrated cold shoe for attaching a light or microphone, depending on what you’re photographing or filming.


Zhiyun Smooth Q3 Combo

£89.00 View

Along the same lines as the holder, a smartphone gimbal will elevate any travel photographer or filmmaker's images. This smartphone gimbal is super-compact and portable making it ideal for those on the move. It’s easy to use and offers lots of creative options for image taking including a 180° rotatable fill light with three light levels that is perfect for evenly lighting your photos and videos.


Polaroid Hi Print Pocket Photo Printer - White

£89.00 View

Finally, what better way to share your travelling stories with friends and family, or gift a memory to the people you meet on your travels than a physical, tactile photo? It’s lightweight, and super-portable it’s easy to connect to your phone via Bluetooth. This printer is all about fun and creating memories that are not lost to the depths of your smartphone.
