2011 gift guides: Photophile

I have always thought that photography is the gift that keeps on giving. After the party is over or the moment has passed, it’s great to have a photograph to remember it by, and photo gadgets are pretty fun, too! So give the photophiles in your life a gift that keeps their passion alive. Here are some of my favorites. — Stephanie

    I LOVE the camera bag and the phone case. I hate my ugly and bulky black Nikon camera case. I have a bunch of cool iPad/ laptop cases on my site today, but now I want to add these to my tech accessory list! http://www.loveumadly.com/2011/11/product-obsession-ispy-cool-tech-accessories/
