Here are the best gift ideas for Instagrammers in 2020


Sony Alpha a6000 Mirrorless Digital Camera

This is the camera Dom and I have. We’ve had it for a year and a half now and we LOVE it! The picture quality is great, the settings are easy to use, and you can transfer pictures straight onto your phone. How easy is that?

Camera lens

Sony E 55-210mm F4.5-6.3 Lens for Sony E-Mount Cameras (Black)

After having our camera for about a year we decided to upgrade our gear to improve our photos even more. That’s why we decided to buy a zoom lens to test out different lengths, angles, and have fun with wildlife photography.


Sometimes it takes a few attempts to capture the perfect picture! Instead of always having to ask strangers and friends to take your photos you might as well invest in a tripod. A fantastic gift for Instagrammers! They’re great for couple photos too 😉

Memory card (64 GB)

SanDisk Ultra 64GB Class 10 SDXC UHS-I Memory Card

As soon as you start to fall in love with your camera and take an endless amount of photos it won’t take you long to realize they take up a lot of room! Why not invest in a bigger memory card and not have to worry constantly about saving your pictures somewhere?

External hard drive

Seagate Backup Plus Portable for Mac 4TB External Hard Drive HDD

It’s always better to be safe than sorry don’t they say? So why not get your Instagrammer friend the safety of having a hard drive where they can store all their pictures in case their memory card, camera, or phone get stolen.

Lost of Instagrammers also run out of room on their devices and memory cards in no time, so it’s nice to have a little bit of extra room on a hard drive that you don’t have to carry around with you everywhere you go.

Presets for editing

A preset, in terms of photography, will most likely consist of settings that are already adjusted and ready to use in Lightroom by Adobe. Presets have become a huge thing on Instagram in recent years. If done right, they can really make your pictures stand out and shine!

Most Instagrammers love to have presets to play with and tweak to make their photos stand out! They make the editing process so much quicker, and for anyone who’s new to photo editing, this is a great way to learn from the pros!

Jo uses the ones from Marie Fe & Jake Snow which is why we recommend these.

Fujifilm Instax Mini

Fujifilm Instax Mini 9 Camera Bundle

A fun way for any photographer to get creative and have a little bit of fun is with a FujiFilm! They are an absolute blast and make really good scrapbook photos along with cool Instagram photos if you’re creative with it! It’s definitely an Instagrammer’s dream to have one with them wherever they go!

    Oh I love this list! I’d never thought about gifting presets but I’d sure love that gift myself! Oh and of course the camera would be a fab gift!

    • redwhiteadventures on November 7, 2019 at 4:18 am

      Yes, haha! It’s always good to get yourself a little present for Christmas (I do, lol). And yes, a camera is seriously one of the best presents you can get!

      It’s so good! We use it every day when we travel. We’ve had it for 1.5 years now and we have no complaints at all. Worth putting on your wish list for sure 🙂

      You’re welcome! It’s so easy to run out of space when you take so many pictures, right?! 🙂

    My daughter wanted that Fujifilm Instax Mini for Christmas when they first came out, they are so adorable, oh and fun!

    • redwhiteadventures on November 7, 2019 at 3:58 am

      That’s lovely! They’re so great – especially for events like a wedding, birthday party, or baby showers. I also enjoy having one for traveling to save my memories 🙂

    Great guide for those of us trying to take our Instagram to the next level. Taking great pics is always the hardest part.

    • redwhiteadventures on November 5, 2019 at 1:49 am

      Hey Cynthia,

      Definitely! Taking pictures to the next level is a must I feel like in the blogging world nowadays. People’s attention span is much shorter and they tend to read less and look at photos more.


  6. Lerato on October 31, 2019 at 12:31 pm

    This is an an amazing list of gift recommendations! I just realized Christmas is literally around the corner and I haven’t started planning anything wow

    • redwhiteadventures on November 7, 2019 at 3:57 am

      I know, it’s coming up so soon! Kind of scary thinking about how this year flew by. But I’m also excited for Christmas. It’s the most wonderful time of the year 🙂

  8. Brianna Simmons on November 1, 2019 at 2:08 am

    These are all great items for any photographer! Those presets are new to me, I’ll definitely check them out.

    • redwhiteadventures on November 7, 2019 at 3:55 am

      Presets are great! I really love what Marie Fe & Jake Snow creates but you can use any preset really. Theirs are good for JPG images whereas others are better for shooting in RAW. So it’s really up to you personally to see what you prefer 🙂
