Another rolling post. Check back for future additions.
6. Trent Parke tote.
7. Ctein mentioned these years ago, but we paid no attention to The Bearded One. Mistake! The wee little Western Digital My Passport hard drives are wonderful—you can alternate backups to one of them and then just grab one when you're traveling with your laptop. One stays safe and sound at home and the other continues performing backups on the road with you, with minimal cost in size and weight.
We chose the the 2TB USB 3.0 model for Mac, for $99—and the hard carrying case, for $6—but there are lots of different models, and different colors, even. B&H Photo carries them too. Small enough to stuff in a stocking.
8. Real Men Shoot Manual T-shirt. We won't comment on the sentiment. There are some other nice T-shirts at the link—we like the "Shoot, Edit, Sleep, Repeat" for one.
9. Zeiss Lens Care Kit. And you can buy the "moist towelette" pre-moistened Zeiss Lens Cleaning Wipes separately, too—for lenses, eyeglasses, or smartphone or tablet screens. A plug here for my favorite, the Lenspen, with the caveat that some people don't like it. (You have to follow the directions.)
10. Photographer wine-bottle caddy. There are four available on eBay; I don't know where else to get one.
Clearly there are ways to add elegance and good taste to your festive board—and this isn't one of them! It is, however, one way to insure that you're not the dorkiest photographer at the table.
