For indoor enthusiasts

It's a safe bet that many of us will be spending a lot of time in the great indoors over the next six months. With than in mind, we've got some ideas for photo-centric gifts to help curb cabin fever.

This deck of photography-themed playing cards ($35) has a couple of tricks up its sleeve. For starters, they're gorgeously designed. They also serve a dual purpose with photography tips and techniques printed on each card. And of course, they function as regular ol' playing cards, which will come in handy when every jigsaw puzzle in the house has been assembled and disassembled again.

Henry Carroll's Photographers on Photography ($20) is another good bet for photographers of all skill levels and disciplines. It's a collection of images and reflections on the photo-making process from a wide range of established photographers. It's more thought-provoking and inspiring, less a technical guide or how-to.

For the truly ambitious tinkerer, consider a Raspberry Pi computer ($35 and up) and interchangeable lens camera module ($50). A helpful companion guide ($14) coaches the user as they build a working camera from scratch. Python coding experience is helpful, but not absolutely necessary – just ask The Verge's Becca Farsace. And don't forget a lens: Raspberry Pi offers two compatible lenses to choose from ($30/60).
