MaxStone Bluetooth Camera Remote
Shooting fireworks, time-lapse, and other photos can be tough to do without a remote. Most options cost 20-30 dollars and allow you to simply take photos. With the MaxStone, it works with almost any camera, allows you to change modes from your phone, and get alerts if your camera is left behind or stolen.

Some people hate straps for cameras (raises hand). That is when something like the Black Widow holster can help. It simply attaches to any belt, and allows you to quickly and easily remove or holster your camera securely.

Peak Design Leash Quick Release Strap
If you do need a strap, the Peak Design Leash is a good option. It includes several clips that can be put on all different parts of the camera. This allows you to customize the way you hold your camera, or use it as a leash or mono pod in certain situations

Olloclip Lens for iPhone
If your photography lover doesn't shoot with DSLR's or still uses their phone day to day, what better option than some lenses for their phone.
Olloclip is the biggest name in the market and their newest offering has several lenses in one. The lenses may not be as high quality as the Moment lenses (below), you get a great bang for your buck with both wide and zoom options.

BlackRapid Camera Sling
If I have to use a strap for my camera, I use the BlackRapid sling. It allows you to easily and comfortably hold your camera by your side while letting you quickly pull it up without moving your strap around.
Securely mounted via the tripod screw hole on the underside of the camera, you can rest assured your camera will go nowhere.

The Moment Lenses are the nicest on the market. They attach magnetically to the back of your iPhone, and even work with most cases. They are the clearest, hands down, and can take stunning photography.
They come in two models, the landscape (wide angle) lens, or the 2x zoom lens. Unfortunately they are a little pricier than the Olloclip, but if you want the best image quality, they can not be beat.
