Weighing less than half a pound, the Manfrotto Mini Tripod is probably the lightest, most compact, and most durable camera tripod on the market. To satisfy as many of your photography needs as possible, this genius tripod can be used as a tabletop tripod, a handheld tripod, and using one of Manfrotto’s KLYP cases for your phone, it can also be used as a smartphone camera tripod.
The InstaCube Photo Streamer syncs to your Instagram feed and lets you view the photos and videos shared by your followers in real-time. One of its fun features is that you can save photos for future viewing, something that isn’t so easy to do using the actual Instagram app. This is a cool gift idea for an Instagram addict that might even encourage them to put their phone down once in a while.
Veho’s Muvi X-Lapse timelapse camera mount lets you easily record smooth and stable 90° degree to 360° degree timelapse videos or take panoramic photos.

Asides from being a tad invasive, this sneaky little rechargeable hidden camera spy pen will discretely capture both HD video, HD photo, and audio without raising any eyebrows. It comes equipped with 8 gigs of capacity (up to 2 hours of creeping) but anyone with serious plans of espionage can purchase a memory card with up to 32 gigs. On a side note, it’s also a decent quality pen.
Fujifilm INSTAX wide is a must-have for retro camera lovers or instant film fanatics. Unlike traditional polaroid snapshots, photos are printed larger so they can really be seen and enjoyed. It comes with a close-up lense, allowing you to take memorable photos from an expanded range. Despite large and retro-looking photos, the best part about this camera is the candid moments and memories that will be captured and shared on the spot. Tagging a friend in a party photo or sending it by text just doesn’t have the same effect as handing over a tangible photo with the date scribbled on with a sharpie.
