Best Smartphone Accessories to Give as Gifts
Never Stop Texting
Glider Gloves are perfect for people glued to their phone no matter what the outside temperature may be. I mean, what if an epic Instagram shot is right there, but those pesky traditional gloves won't allow swiping? You don't want anyone to risk frostbite while exposing a digit to snap that perfect pic. What if the moment is ideal for a Snapchat selfie, but the weather is sure to crack your skin instantly? What if your bestie can't find you at the light festival? Can't ignore that text. Okay, I think you get it. Glider Gloves are the answer to all my silly questions. As bloggers, we will risk all elements to stay functional on our phones. Same goes for most people these days regardless if it's for work or fun.
A Phone Is an Accessory
If you do happen to know what type of phone your person has, phone cases are a good gifting option. The design options out there are infinite. Look at our favorite designs available in all sorts of products including phone cases in pretty pineapples, unique unicorns, baddie bosses, darling Disney, magical mermaids, and more. With cases these days, our phones are another form of self-expression.
Skip pretty and go for waterproof or heavy duty phone cases if you know your person is accident-prone, travels a lot, or has a labor-intensive job.
Any true smartphone addict will own at least one portable charger, but I swear you cannot have too many. The ability to charge your phone with a tiny device is incredible, and everyone should carry several. Especially teens who travel in packs; someone always wants to borrow a charger.
Prop it Up
Phones are now mini-computers. We watch YouTube videos, stream movies, and I probably don't even know what else. But, gifts like PopSockets and a SlipToGrip make it easy to prop the phone up anywhere.
With more and more people documenting their lives on video, a portable dash mount might be a gift option. Of course, we never advocate distracted driving, but many people record video while stopped at a red light or parked.
Gone are the days where a phone is simply for calling people. Our phones are now our worlds, so innovations to go along with them keep popping up. If you want to give the best smartphone accessories as gifts, those are some of our affordable suggestions.
