CanvasPop Gift Certificate
CanvasPop gift cards are different—they’re personal, flexible gifts of art! Let your loved ones experience the joy of ordering a custom canvas—whether it’s of last year’s trip to Europe, a new addition to the family, a favorite object or a child’s illustration, they’ll love choosing the image that means the most to them and best suits their decor. Order today and we’ll instantly e-mail you the electronic gift card to print or forward to the recipient. It’s that easy and super-thoughtful. (From $30)

Lytro Camera
Shoot now, focus later! Unlike a conventional camera that captures a single plane of light, the Lytro camera captures all the light traveling in every direction in every point in space. Since you’ll capture the color, intensity, and direction of all the light, you can experience the first major light field capability—focusing after the fact. Focus and re-focus, anywhere in the picture, time and again. Available for pre-order. (From $399)

The Glif
The Glif is an iPhone 4/4S accessory that allows you to mount an iPhone to a tripod for taking great pictures or making movies, or prop it up for hands-free FaceTiming or video watching. The Glif is made in America from recyclable rubberized plastic that feels great and plays nice with your phone. It fits any standard tripod or camera mount and is perfect for capturing those Instagram shotsVia ($20)

Camera Creatures: Outrageous Owl
Whether you’re shopping for a professional photographer or a parent who’s capturing their kids growing up, this Outrageous Owl promises to be an invaluable tool for photographing children. Both cute and practical, the plushy Owl conceals the ‘scary’ camera and intrigues curious little eyes. And if that’s not enough, it comes with a built-in squeaker! ($19.95)
