Christmas is the season of giving, and there is nothing more fulfilling than seeing that glow in a person’s eyes when they open their present and see the gift they’ve been wishing for inside. However, sometimes, we just don’t know what to give a person. So, why not give something fun and original, right? This is a list of the Top 10 Underwater camera – Christmas gifts for 2008. Underwater cameras may not sound like the common gift, but it can be very useful and fun, too! Check out the list below.

1. Olympus Neoprene Soft Digital Camera Case - although this is not an underwater camera, it is still the hottest item for people who want to make sure their digital cameras are protected from the elements. It also has pockets for storage and a strap for easy handling. Definitely a good buy.

2. Flip Video Underwater Case for Flip Ultra Camcorders – this is a gift that would put a smile on your friend’s face. If they own a Flip Video Camera, they’d love to have this accessory which would allow them to take videos underwater for up to 30 feet (and some users say even more than that!). It’s easy to use and dependable, as well.

3. Sanyo VCP-STB1 Water Leash for Sanyo E1 Waterproof Camcorders - coming in at number three of this list of the Top 10 Underwater camera – christmas gifts for 2008 is another accessory for those who own a Sanyo Waterproof camera. Not only does it keep the camera attached to the owner’s hand, it also has a small floating device attached to it, so that when the camera slips, it doesn’t sink.

4. INTOVA INWD-IC600 6.0 MP Digital Camera with Waterproof Housing -180FT – if you know someone who’s into water sports, or any other “wild” and “rough” sports that would involve contact with the elements, then this is the perfect gift for them. This full featured 6MP camera can be used for normal occasions. However, if the need arises (such as when they decide to go snorkeling or surfing, for example), they only need to slip on the Waterproof Housing and they can take pictures on the go!

5. Canon WP-DC17 Underwater housing for Canon SD870IS Digital Cameras - this device can take care of your friend’s Canon camera in all ways. It can guard it against water (salt or otherwise), sand, mud, and even protect it from falls and scratches. Not only that, all of the camera’s features can be used even with the housing on. It’s simply amazing.

6. Canon WP-DC21 Underwater housing for Canon G9 Digital Cameras – coming in at the second half of this list of the Top 10 Underwater camera – christmas gifts for 2008 is this beauty. If your friend owns a Canon G9 camera, then why not give them something that would let them maximize the usage of the camera? With this housing, they can take pictures underwater and not worry about destroying their camera. It is also great against sand, humidity, and scratches and bumps.

7. Canon WP-DC22 Waterproof Case for Canon PowerShot SD1100IS Digital Elph - this housing for Canon PowerShot SD1100IS cameras is great for all sorts of fun and adventure.

It will allow you friend to dive up to 15 feet and take pictures and videos. There’s also sound as well, because this one has a built in microphone!

9. Canon WWDC1 Weight for Canon Waterproof and All Weather Cases -we’re almost at the end of the list of the the Top 10 Underwater camera – christmas gifts for 2008 but not without mentioning these ingenious little devices that will keep your friend’s camera from floating when using them underwater. This is to avoid the camera from slipping or to make them even easier to use.

10. Sony MPK-WD Marine Pack for Select W Series Digital Camera (Clear) – Sony’s W Series of digital cameras are one of the most popular, so I bet you know a friend or two you can give this gift to.
