There are about a million (give or take) gadgets and devices that can help you capture the best content possible—trust me, as a social media editor, I know. Being on my phone and playing with filters and hashtags and whatnot is (quite literally) my job. So if you’re shopping for the perfect gift to give to the social media guru or aspiring influencer in your life, then I’ve got all the Instagram gift ideas they’re sure to love.
Listen, social media is no joke (well, it is when it comes to memes). It takes more than just pointing and shooting with your iPhone to create quality social media content. And the social media guru in your life would surely attest to that.
There’s a lot more that goes on behind the scenes than you’d realize—from capturing the right light to keeping the phone steady to knowing when a filter is just too much to finalllllly capturing the perfect boomerang. And yet, to anyone else viewing the content, it all looks so of the moment and effortless and, dare I say, instantaneous—which, after all, is exactly the point of Instagram, no?
Luckily, we live in a world where portable lighting and phone-stabilizing tools exist. Not only that, but other products that don’t necessarily have to do with your phone exist, too—like blue light-blocking glasses and posture-correcting devices, which are essential to keeping me from hunching over and staring at my screen all day. A healthy social media editor is a happy social media editor.
So, if you’re shopping for someone trying to level up their content quality (or maybe you’re just shopping for yourself—no shame), we’ve got you covered. Keep scrolling to shop the tools that I—a social media editor and, therefore, a super serious expert on the subject—use every day to help me be the best social media star I can be. #CONTENT.
