Are you a bit stuck wondering what to get your friend or loved one who happens to be a shutterbug? Typically one of the cardinal rules for gift giving when dealing with a tech enthusiast is not to get them something tech-related unless they told you explicity what they want or your have a very good idea. Typically, us techies know what we want/need and hate receiving a useless lens or camera bag. With this in mind, we've assembled a list of great stocking stuffers that don't impinge on your techie's carefully curated gear setup and help supplement his or her life in other ways.
