When you know someone who thinks, speaks and dreams iOS, it’s easy to just give him an iPhone case and call it a day. However, there are countless other gift ideas for that Apple-obsessed special someone. Don’t be boring this holiday season choose a unique iOS gift that suits your loved one’s personality.
For the Netflix Fan
Give the gift of convenience to a movie buff this year. The Crabble Folding iPhone Stand is affordable (less than $5) and fits just about anywhere, including a wallet. The recipient will never have to hold his or her phone while getting an entertainment fix again.
For the Accident-Prone
Now, we’re not calling anyone clumsy here, but it’s fair to say that some people tend to break things more often than others. The iPhone 6 protection plan from Protect Your Bubble covers things like cracked screens, liquid damage and mechanical breakdowns with next-day replacement, and it makes a perfect gift for coordination-lacking iPhone lovers.
For the Amateur Photographer
Macro lenses for the iPhone are an ideal gift for a budding photography enthusiast. The Olloclip 4-in-1 lens comes with wide-angle, fish-eye, 10x and 15x lens capabilities and easily fits over an iPhone’s built-in camera lens. It comes in different colors and is available for the iPhone 4, 4S, 5, 5s, 6 and 6 Plus.
For the Retro Enthusiast
A vintage handset is just what a nostalgic needs this Christmas. Anyone who misses cradling a phone between his shoulder and ear will love the Native Union Pop Phone Retro Handset. This quirky gift plugs directly into an iPhone and has noise-reducing technology that provides high-quality sound. This classic phone comes in blue, white, black and red.
For the Chatterbox
For the constant talker and texter, there’s really no better gift than an iPhone battery pack. The Anker 2nd Gen Astro Mini is small yet powerful. This best-selling rechargeable battery charger offers over seven hours of talk time while on the go. Add even more practicality to this gift by pairing it with an iPhone lightning cable that connects the battery pack to the phone.
For the Stylish
Pair a love for fashion and Apple with a pair of touchscreen gloves, like the heavy-duty ones from Glider Gloves. The anti-slip grip keeps devices secure, and the double-lined interior keeps hands warm. Never again will they have to expose their hands to the bitter winter cold next time they want to update their Facebook or make a call.
For the Music Lover
There’s no better combination than a music junkie and a pair of earbuds. Surprise them with the Medis in-ear headphones by UrbanEars. Their one-of-a-kind ergonomic design relieves pressure on the ear while staying firmly in place, and the built-in microphone and remote makes hands-free talking a breeze.
For the Selfie Devotee
Make life easier for your favorite selfie-taker with a wireless shutter. The Satechi BT MediaRemote Bluetooth Multi-Media Remote Control works with all iOS devices, including, of course, the iPhone. This gadget enables users to easily take photos of themselves with a simple press of a button.
