Give the Gift of GoPro + More



Dec 10, 2019

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:

GoPro Mods

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.

PRO TIP: Light Mod can be used as a standalone accessory or attached to other GoPro mounts, like the Head Strap or Shorty.

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 Neistats in no time.

Curate the Content:

Aura Frames

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.

Tempered Glass Lens Screen Protectors

Small but mighty, these protectors safeguard the lens and touch screen on your HERO8 Black from scuffs and scratches when the going gets tough. Made from tempered glass, these protectors feature anti-fingerprint and anti-reflective coatings, so your footage looks its best. Keep them looking shiny and bright year-round with an included microfiber cleaning cloth. The cloth, two tempered glass lens protectors and two tempered glass screen protectors are included for $19.99.


Want a little more protection? The new Rollcage (Protective Sleeve Replaceable Lens for HERO8 Black) is a silicone sleeve that wraps around the camera and has an integrated replaceable lens to protect all parts of your HERO8 Black from scratches, dirt, debris and impact. The sleeve allows access to the camera buttons, front and rear screens, built-in folding fingers and audio mics, giving you the full GoPro experience with some added peace of mind. Preorder now for $24.99.

Protective Housing

Planning to play rough with your HERO8 Black? Whatever the action, your camera with the Protective Housing will handle anything you throw at it, from dirt and flying debris to deep water diving. The design also allows for awesome audio capture and easy access to the camera's touch screen. Get covered now for $49.99.


Want the gift that keeps on giving? Consider GoPro PLUS, a monthly subscription service that offers way more than just protection for your camera. PLUS subscribers get unlimited cloud storage for their GoPro photos and videos, 50% off mounts and accessories at, and damaged camera replacement in case your HERO8 Black (and other GoPro cameras in your kit) gets busted.

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.
