It's that time of year again where the long suffering partners of landscape photographers franticly search for gifts for us miserable awkward bunch without any idea of what we actually need or want.

Im not affiliated with any of the links or products, these are just honest ideas and the cheapest places I could find them for your convenience.

There are some invaluable phone apps for landscape photographers which will help them no end and they are cheap as chips ! Several I would recommend include The Photographers Ephemeris (Shows sunset & sunrise times, positions arc of cover, stores locations etc...) Photopills, Much the same as the Photographers Ephemeris but does a little more, MeteoEarth (A fantastic weather app that can monitor the cloud cover coming in, rain clouds etc... This has helped me nail numerous extra shots. Don't underestimate the power and usefulness of these apps !
