Photoinduced Holiday Gift Guide 5 : Bits and Bobs

You know when someone is into a particular hobby, profession, or basic interest, you struggle to find a gift for them figuring that they already have it, or are about to buy it for themselves?
Here’s a few items to fill out your list for the photog on your list. It may just show that you care about their passion. So would a Nikon D4s with a sweet 70-200mm 2.8 lens, but these are more within the range of possibility.

Want a little ink to declare your passion? But maybe not forever? How about a set of the photo-centric, temporary tats?
Tattly Photo Tattoos $15, including shipping.

Stay warm with the Film Is Better scarf, designed to look like a strip of film. Looks cool, and works. Cotton/acrylic scarf blend is machine wash, tumble dry. Measures 6″ x 66″. Made in the USA. $39.

Hang it on a tree, or just on the wall camera ornament we all need one of these. Have had mine for many years, and always comes out this time of year. Includes ribbon for hanging. $19, if still avail, but hurry.
