Give the Gift of GoPro + More
Deck the halls and order the presents because it’s the most wonderful time of the year—holiday gifting season. At GoPro, that means we’re looking to gift all the GoPro-compatible bells and whistles. After all, leveling up the accessory game is almost as important as dialing in the perfect capture devices (which we will also help you with below).
Here’s what we have on our wish list this year.
Get the Gear:
Three modular accessories add up to one epic HERO8 Black production powerhouse. Start with the Media Mod (left; $79.99) as the base and build it out with the Display Mod (center; $79.99) or Light Mod (right; $49.99) depending on what content you’re keen on capturing.
YETI LoadOut GoBox 30
If you plan to test the ruggedness of your GoPro, make sure your gear can keep up—especially if we’re talking about SD cards, batteries and other less-than-waterproof accessories.
This isn’t the first time we’ve recommended AER, but you can’t blame us. The concept is simple, and the content is always amazing. So amazing that AER helped Mark de Fraine land a cut of last year’s GoPro Million Dollar Challenge for the shot featured above. Read more about it here. Needless to say, we’re big fans.
Much like AER, the #270Pro gets a high-flying wide angle—but without the flight. Instead, you have 270cm of sturdy aluminum selfie stick to capture the widest fields of view ever, especially when you turn on SuperView. The #270Pro also happens to be GoPro Family Member Bryan Hughan’s (aka. @surf06) go-to mount.
Boosted Mini X
Cruise into epic content with the latest Boosted Mini X. This compact electric ride is only 29.5in but is ready to rock with an upgraded deck construction, durable Boosted Lunar wheels and an extended range that will have you capturing 14 miles of prime skate time. Your content might look like Casey Neistat's in no time.
Curate the Content:
Get down with the digital era and sync up to this app-powered digital frame by Aura Frames. Upload from your latest GoPro and watch your shots play throughout the day. Or send a photo with a personalized note to someone you are thinking about—it’ll make their day even from far away. We couldn’t decide between The Mason ($199) and The Sawyer ($299), so we got both!
Eco-Fused Memory Card Case
Speaking of gear … there is nothing worse than a jumbled pile of SD cards, which is why we recommend turning to Eco-Fused for help. The company’s slim, 22-card case keeps SD cards organized, and it fits easily into any gear bag. Plus, it’s a cool $6.99 on Amazon.
LaCie Hard Drive
We lied. There is one thing worse than a jumbled pile of SD cards, and that’s a jumbled pile of content. At GoPro, we have heaps of hard drives circulating at any given time, going from production to production. We recommend the LaCie Rugged Mini USB 3.0 External Hard Drive. It can take a beating and still protect your content gold. Anything over 1TB and you’ll be set.
Gift Some GoPro Peace of Mind:
GoPro has good, better and best protection solutions for your HERO8 Black that will handle whatever holiday mayhem you throw at it.

If you’re still wondering how to get capture the joy of the perfect gift or surprise your out-of-town visitor, then let’s circle back to the basics—the GoPro gear (from left to right).
- For the first-timer, introduce them to the action camera world with HERO7 Silver.
- For the budding filmmaker, look no further than HERO7 Black.
- For the smooth shooter, stoke them out with HERO8 Black.
- For the artistic enthusiast, blow their mind with GoPro MAX.
Happy holidays and gifting this season, from our GoPro Family to yours!
