There’s nothing better than the Canon EOS 1D X DSLR Camera for the adventurer in your life. This full frame camera is one of the best available and is used by professionals all over the world. Getting down and dirty to get the shot will pay off with this exceptional camera.
If you don’t want to worry about your man messing up his clothes on the shoot, grab the Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM telephoto lens. It’s one of the sharpest on the market and easily get you a great looking shot of a far away subject. And don’t worry… it totally works with the Canon EOS 1D too.
Photo gear for her
Lugging around professional cameras isn’t very fashionable. Luckily, Sony’s Alpha a7RII DSLR is a full frame camera that’s retro-chic. It’s lightweight, compact, and has all the image capturing power of a camera three times its size. Most importantly, it looks great as an accessory.
And a camera that stylish deserves a lens to match. The Sony 55mm f/1.8 Lens is a strong performer with nice, wide aperture. Perfect for getting up close and personal, this lens won’t give you any problems capturing your perfectly presented meal or your bae sitting across from you. You know, or your best friend. #NothingWrongWithThat
Wearables for him
The Android Wear-powered Samsung Gear S2 is a smart looking, classy smartwatch. Round, aluminum bodied, and with a great looking OLED screen, the Gear S2 is one of the best smartwatches available. Easily mistakeable for a classic watch that costs much more, the Gear S2’s fitness tracking features are a wonderful perk.
If fitness is his main priority, might we recommend the Garmin Fenix 3? This wearable is equipped with all the technology he’ll need to become a total beast. Notable features include GPS navigation to track runs, a long battery life, and a rugged design.
Wearables for her
Most wearables are bulky and look like, well, wearables. But that’s not true for the Mira Wellness and Activity Bracelet. It’s an elegant looking fitness tracker that can easily be mistaken for a high quality piece of jewelry. A special perk of this device is that it will deliver inspirational quotes throughout the day to boost her mood. High class and simple, this is a fitness tracker she’ll love to show off.
If fitness is her main priority, the Misfit Shine 2 is wonderfully simply fitness tracker. With a battery that lasts months and a design that can be worn on her wrist, as a necklace, or placed in her pocket, the Shine 2 is a wearable that can be worn any way she wants to wear it.
Audio gear for him
If he wants to get his parties bumping, there’s no louder, more affordable Bluetooth speaker than the JBL Xtreme. Easily packed up in a backpack, water resistant, and loud as can be, the JBL Xtreme will not leave him disappointed at a party, in the park, or on a hike.
If he’s looking for headphones, the Sony MDR-10RNC is a solid bet. With an unoffensive black design and great sound quality, you can’t go wrong with these headphones. They’re excellent for desk work and light weight enough to take on a commute.
Audio gear for her
Harman Kardon’s Esquire Mini is a beautifully designed speaker made from premium materials packed into a small form factor. Discreet enough to carry anywhere, the Esquire Mini’s thinness can’t be ignored when it’s playing her favorite tunes.
The Master and Dynamic M30’s are the best looking, most fashion-forward headphones available. All that style would only go so far without excellent audio quality, but there’s no reason to worry; these headphones simply sound incredible. There’s no way you could go wrong getting her these exceptional headphones.
