Chances are everyone you know already owns a camera, which makes accessories for them a great gift idea. Here's six thoughts to get you started.
Note: if you're feeling generous and are going to give your beloved an actual camera, then Gizmodo has a handy gift guide covering interchangeable lens models.
Lowepro Pro Roller
Cost: $517 Where to get it: Digital Camera Warehouse Why it's a good choice: If you're travelling with serious camera gear, it needs protecting. This bag matches airline carry-on dimensions, so you can keep your camera (and your laptop) close by, and has a removable backpack for on-site use.
Bokeh Masters Kit
Cost: $US30 Where to get it: Bokeh Masters Why it's a good choice: We loved this easy kit for adding bokeh effects to your photos. Using it is as simple as attaching the relevant cutout onto your camera.
Eye-Fi Explore X2 8GB
Cost: Around $25 Where to get it: Shop around Why it's a good choice: For compact digital cameras, the original Gorillapod remains a great travel tripod: flexible, lightweight and just really, really handy. As an added bonus, it's available in red.
DVD drive as macro lens
Cost: $40 or so Where to get it: Shop around Why it's a good choice: For a camera freak with a DIY bent, you can convert the lens from a cheap DVD drive into a macro lens for your mobile phone.
Vaseline Petroleum Jelly
Cost: Around $3.50 Where to get it: Any supermarket or chemist Why it's a good choice: No, it's not just for your lips. A careful application of Vaseline to a lens (or lens filter if you're being cautious) can give photos a dreamy, vintage effect. You might want to include a note explaining that with the gift to avoid causing confusion or offence.
