People tend to think that being a photographer nowadays means nothing more than snapping shots with a new digital camera and using various filters. If you have a passionate photographer in your surroundings, don’t opt for this shiny expensive piece of equipment, but rather go for an old-fashioned approach and find a vintage camera or even a Polaroid. Learning to take photos without using digital software afterwards to edit the pics will help them learn the basics of photography and capture unforgettable moments. Search online and find them a book that can accompany their new vintage camera and teach them how the photographers dealt with some of the problems back in the day.

The designer

If your friends are always asking you to wear their creations. You better make sure they’re made of quality materials with unique patterns. Go to a local store that sells materials. Find some interesting fabrics, buy a bunch of them and wrap them all together. Be sure to ask the retailer about the fabric composition and use Dymo labels to mark everything your friends need to know. Separate the fabric you’d like to wear and ask them to make something special for you. Don’t forget to spread the word about the designer. This can be beneficial both for you and your friends, so don’t be surprised if they ask you to be their model and promote their new line.

The writer

Don’t rush to a bookstore and grab just any bestseller – you’ll be among a dozen clueless people who always choose the same non-creative gift. If you have a writing aficionado in your family, you need to know that you probably won’t be able to buy them a book they want, so you need to go in a different direction. Buy them popular aqua notes, for instance, so that they can write their ideas in the shower – let’s be honest, that’s the place where we get the best ideas. If you’re dealing with a fashionista who’s getting into the writing business, combine these two passions and surprise them with a pair of cufflinks with a typewriter lettering. This is something they wouldn’t expect from you and will surely appreciate your effort.
