Gift Ideas for Social Media Marketers

Gift Ideas for Social Media Marketers

As a social media marketer, I am always on the lookout for new toys to play with when it comes to creating content. Since most of my work in social media is all about PHOTOGRAPHY, here are some of my favorite gifts to get a social media marketer in your life (AFFILIATE LINKS TO PRODUCTS I TRULY LOVE).

A Beautiful Mess Photo Idea Book

A Beautiful Mess is one of my favorite blogs. I have been following Emma and Elise for several years and this book was a gift from a friend and I have used it to get photography inspiration from ever since!  

Get it on Amazon here.

Ring Light for Camera aka a Selfie Camera Light 

This portable LED light may sound like a silly gift. But trust me, it isn't JUST for selfies. Use this rechargeable light as a white light source for on the go.

Transcend 16 GB Wi-Fi Memory Card

Much of my Instagram photos for myself and clients I am creating photography content for comes from my Canon Mark 3 camera, with photos transferred to my phone directly from my WIFI SD card. It is great for photoshoots when I don't have access to my laptop and want to share photos in real time (which I do when I am sharing photos to Instagram Stories).

Get it on Amazon here.

Kelly Moore Libby Fashionable Camera Bag

I have had three different Kelly Moore bags over the years and this one is by far my favorite. In fact, it held my Canon Mark 3 AND diapers when Ryeson was a baby. yup, a camera bag and diaper bag in ONE. It is true.   

If you don't need a giant bag, check out this smaller one from Kelly Moore as well (it is the one I currently use as my everyday crossbody bag).

Get it on Amazon here.

Octopus Style Portable and Adjustable Tripod Stand Holder

A tripod holder is always needed for when you want to shoot video. This one comes with a remote and extension if you happen to want to take selfies as well (fun fact: brands that share selfie images in their Instagram stories do well.. Something about humanizing your brand).

Get it on Amazon here.

Sony Mirrorless Camera a5000

Sometimes a good artificial light system is needed. I have two of these tabletop lightboxes and I use them all the time. GREAT for that extra white background flatlay!
