Getting presents for your Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanza/Winter holiday season is challenging enough, let alone when your loved one is always working on productions. What do you get a person who has everything…they never have time to use? Well, how about some gifts they can use while working? Here’s a list of ones we thought were interesting to check out.

Film Maker Keychain: I came, I saw, I shot

Everyone is going to get them the lens mug. Let’s try for something more original. Plus, you’d be supporting another creative person by buying from Etsy!

Portable Cell Phone Battery

It’s a known fact – with 15 hour days, cell phones die on set. So don’t let your loved one be that person asking to charge their phone in the AD’s trailer. They can charge it right in their pocket instead, with this portable battery!

Certificate for a massage
In line with the heating pad, if you’d like to splurge a little, get them a gift certificate for a massage! It’s really the best gift for a person who works on their feet all day. They dream of massages. Here’s a list of the best spas in Toronto to get you started.

Large Watertight Box

Especially handy for the technical crew. Sets get messy, watertight boxes are a must to keep your important gear safe. This is how you know you’ve graduated from ‘newbie’ status. Help your loved one graduate to ‘this isn’t my first rodeo’ territory with a large box!

Set Pouch for the Camera Assistant

Another prepared crew person essential. Having a handy pouch tells everyone they are always ready with tape, sharpies, and other production must-haves. If you’d like to get a little more fashionable with it, Roots has this great production purse, especially popular among the ladies.

We hope you found these items inspirational! Now go ahead and cook your production pal a meal, let them rest and be nice to them. After all… winter is coming.
