A new camera strap is always a favorite gift for photos enthusiasts. A good camera strap adds function, comfort, and style to any camera. Whether scarf-style, cross-body, or simply something a bit more fashionable, there are tons of choices, including:
- Matin Neoprene Fast Access Strap
- Tamrac Neoprene Boomerang Digital Strap

#4: A Great Bag
Does mom’s camera bang along inside a diaper bag, or something picked up from a flea market? Help her splurge on “the bag” – one that’s just the right size and color. Camera bags offer great organization which is a must-have for photographers. If picking one out is not your game, check out Kelly Moore Bags, Lowepro, or other great photo-bag sites and grab a gift card.
