On the eighth day of Christmas . . .

There are things in life that are plain and are just fine that way. There are also things in life that are plain and simply don't have to be.

Take, for example, the DSLR camera strap. I don't know what your camera came with but mine came with a highly-unattractive, plain black strap emblazoned with CANON. Now I dearly love my camera, and I dearly love Canon for making it, but I just don't need to have a camera strap yelling CANON when I don't have to.

And that brings me to VM Jess. This is a store filled with fun, funky, subtle, bold, whimsical and classic camera straps. And these straps are 54 inches long -- adjustable to a longer 60 inches or shorter 52 inches – hipster length, which means it's long enough to be worn across your body. She also makes straps for point-and-shoot cameras too!

Plus, all VM Jess straps come with a money-back guarantee. That means no sale is ever final and you really can't beat that.

And now the good part, VM Jess is giving one of you this DSLR camera strap in one of their best-selling patterns.

Let's hear it for no more plain black straps.

This drawing will remain open until 12:00 midnight on December 14.

  8. Oh what an awesome idea! I would have to go with the laughing leaves - Taxi, it's feminine, but masculine enough that my fiance' won't feel too weird using the camera. I'm so happy you found these, I'm going to order point and shoot straps for my sisters now!

    The watermelon stripe and dot reversible is my favorite. You find the most amazing things! I'm getting a DSLR camera for Christmas and I never would have even thought to look for a strap that was more fun than the boring black one it comes with. Thanks for all these gift ideas!

    I found it hard to narrow it down to 2! However, I love 'the laughing leaves green' or 'the superhearts'.

    Sigh, you are making my 'wish list' get longer by the day!
