Who’s finished with their holiday shopping already???  Ummm.  I’d be willing to bet no one!  🙂  Or at least you still have a few odds and ends to pick up even if you are almost finished.  Maybe one of those tricky gifts that has been hiding will allude you no more.  Here’s some more great gift giving ideas from Dandy Giveaway…

Gift Idea #1:

What?  A trendy belt from Mission Belt.BLK-BLK-1.25

 

Why?  There’s a belt for literally everyone on your list:  men, women, and children.  The belts have no holes and $1 from every belt sold goes to fight global hunger and poverty.

Gift Idea #2:

What?  A potty training kit from Potty Tots.

Why?  If you have a toddler needing to be potty trained on your list then this is the gift.  Kids can interact with the Potty Tots characters online and this will help to take the stress out of the training process!

 

Gift Idea #3:

What?  A camera strap from Made By Meegz.

Isn’t it crazy how family pictures are almost completely leaving the studio?  I remember heading to Olan Mills as a little girl, probably twice a year, to get our family pictures done.  We so rarely took professional pictures at an outdoor photographic setting, and never had someone outside of a studio to take our own.  Within one generation, things have totally changed (at least in my household), and I doubt we will ever go to a studio for a family photoshoot.  I’m all about finding the next best locale and bringing a friend along with our DSLR to create the one-of-a-kind shoot I dreamed up.

modstraps_logoI take my nice camera everywhere!  I use it nearly every day to document every cute baby stage, our family’s adventures, and of course, these product reviews :)  It seems like everyone these days has a DSLR, but not everyone has one of these classic camera straps from mod.!  I’ve wanted one of these for the longest time!  Something that makes my camera uniquely mine, with a colorful personal flair.  Goodbye boring Canon universal strap, and hello personality!  I couldn’t resist the black and white and canary yellow (my wedding colors).  My husband likes that it isn’t too girly, so he wouldn’t mind being seen with it on.

This strap embodies some beautiful features.  The decorative part of the strap measures 33” long, but the total length of the strap can be adjusted to 42” -48”.  I chose a Classic Strap (sold for $35.95), which is the same style and durability as the Basic strap, but is lined with the most luxurious black fuzzy fabric.  It really is soft as butter and quite comfortable.  mod. also carries Premium Straps, with all the listed features in addition to a “quick release” feature, which allows you to quickly disconnect your strap.

Taking this to the soccer fields is going to make me the trendiest mom on the team.

If I’m dangling something that costs over $500 around my neck, I want to be able to trust in the strength of the straps holding it.  Good thing these are tested to withstand up to 90 lbs. of pull down weight.  After spending a few minutes getting my camera dressed in its new strap, I feel completely confident in this strap taking care of my camera.  The materials are visibly thicker and stronger than my black Canon strap, and based on the effort it took to get the intricate parts through the right pieces, I can’t imagine anything showing wear within my lifetime.

And there are so many matching accessories available!  Drop in bags, accessory bags for extra lenses and such, neck pads, strap wraps, tech sleeves, and photo cases…

Another thing I find extremely useful are these cap savers.  I’ve spent too many minutes of my life searching for cap lenses I’ve set down and forgotten about.  Checking pockets, retracing steps, searching bags, etc.  The dazzling gem keeps the cap connected to your camera, so after you take it off, it stays tethered and accessible.  Genius.
