If he’s saving you about $2000 I might gift him with $300-500.

I would recommend cash unless you could find out which retailer he buys most of his supplies from

Will he even take your money? I find that people don’t want to take my money or check, but they’ll take a gift card more readily

Yeah, I think I would at least include a gift card as part of it bc like EJS said, if he’s a friend, he might not even take your money at all! A gift card, tho, since it’s already bought and paid for, is hard to turn down…It could even be to like, Starbucks or maybe a nice restaurant in the photographer’s town?

That’s so nice of your family member to help out! If he’s willing to take your cash gift, you might consider giving him what you would have tipped a $2k photog $300-$450. Then again if he’s considering this a gift, he might not take anything so I think the other ideas like going out to a really nice restaurant are also good!

I agree with the gift card, especially from B&H Photo like Razvan said.  I got the FI’s Nikon from there and its a great place, very HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for any photographer!
