The Great WebShop BrainSwap, Part 1

We’re teaming up with some of our very favorite shops on the web to help you, faithful readers, with your holiday shopping!

These folks have very good taste. So, we decided to take advantage of their expertise and asked them to pick out their faves from the Photojojo shop to share with you.

We’d have chosen ourselves, but that’d be like choosing your favorite from among your very own kids. That is to say… totally illegal. (right?)

Now, scroll-along to see what the crews from Threadless and Poketo like most.

I love instant Polaroid cameras. Taking a photo without adding a filter and seeing it published right in front of your eyes is raw and magical.

Who wouldn’t love a watch that has a face that looks like an f-stop? Seriously.

I’ve been on the lookout for a simple, but charming, camera strap. The Toyko Dreamer Strap fits the bill nicely with its clean and delightful design.
The Tokyo Dreamer Strap
$20 at the Photojojo Store

Saving photo opportunities from dead battery hell. What’s not to love? I tend to find myself in a pickle quite often when I see the red bar on my iPhone appear (and drain rapidly) as I continue to ignore its nagging warning. Now I truly can ignore this warning and capture away.
Keychain iPhone Charger
$34.95 at the Photojojo Store

My love for photos is only rivaled by animals, so the combination of the two together = perfection! I love its quirky appeal and am appreciative of the extra company while editing into the wee hours of the night.
Animag Photo Stand
$9 at the Photojojo Store

Most genius ideas are simple at heart and this is one of them. One of my biggest pet peeves is that I always have a tendency to tilt my photos by an angle or two. Au revoir, crooked photos!
The Level Camera Cube
$15 at the Photojojo Store

I’m from Hawaii so naturally I have a love for the ocean. I love taking photos with my iPhone and this would be the perfect accessory for my next trip home!
