Great Gift Ideas for Drone Photography Enthusiasts This Christmas

by | Dec 17, 2018

The holidays are almost upon us and with it is the time to show our loved ones how much they really mean to us. If you’re here, you probably have a friend or a family member who is an avid drone photography enthusiast, and you’re looking for the perfect gift for them.

This can be pretty challenging because if you don’t know much about drones, you risk giving them the wrong gift. As a technical industry, every hobbyist has their own preferences for what gear they need or want for their drone needs.

However, there are some gifts that work well for every drone photography and videography enthusiast out there. To help you out, here are some great gift ideas for your drone hobbyist friend that they’ll appreciate this holiday season.

Carrying case

One of the easiest things that you can get for your drone hobbyist acquaintance is a drone carrying case. Because drones are designed for you to take on outdoor trips, drone photographers often find themselves in need for a decent case that they can use to transport their drone around.

It’s not something that is needed for a specific type of drone, so no matter what kind of drone they have, they’ll appreciate having a good case to carry it around in, especially if they’re avid outdoor photographers.

Try to get a waterproof case if you can, this will help protect their drone if they accidentally get caught out in the rain.

Drone toolkit

A lot of drone enthusiasts like to do adjustments and small repairs to their own drones. With this in mind, a good gift for them would be a decent drone toolkit. They can use this to do whatever small repairs they need to do on their drones.

The great thing about this is that like the carrying case, it’s not an exclusive accessory for a specific type of drone, it can be something that all drone hobbyists might enjoy, whether they’re amateurs or professionals.

Battery carrier

When you get into drone photography for the first time, you will find that you’re going to need a lot of batteries that are included in the original set when you purchase your very first drone.

In fact, you’ll find that a lot of drone professionals carry multiple batteries on a single drone flight. This is because the average lifespan of a drone battery is only about 15 minutes, and the high-end drones only last up to 30 minutes at most.

If you’re looking to get as many great shots and footage as possible, you’re going to need a lot longer than that. To help make things easier, you can gift a battery carrier to help carry all of those batteries and keep them in one place.
