And if you’re still stumped for gifts, you can also check out our Gift Guide page to see tons of recommendations for everyone on your list.
1. The Ultimate Bundle for iPhone 6
If you are getting someone a new iPhone 6 for Christmas, this little bundle is a great “starter kit” for any new iPhone owner. The ultimate bundle includes a protective case, a stylus, earbuds, an MFi certified cable, wall charger, car charger, a screen protector, and a cleaning cloth. Buying this kit is cheaper than buying comparable items separately.
2. Adonit Jot Script Evernote Edition Fine Point Stylus
A stylus is admittedly a more appropriate gift for an iPad owner than an iPhone owner. That being said, this awesome stylus has legions of devoted fans. Plus, iPhone 6 owners who are totally obsessed with the new DrawType Keyboard app will appreciate being able to make more detailed drawings than they can do with just their fingertip.
The Adonit Jot Script Evernote Edition Fine Point Stylus has a tip 70 percent smaller than the nearest competitor. This make it ideal for art students who need to do fine digital work, or for anyone who prefers taking notes “long hand” during meetings.
This universal camera lens kit will fit the iPhone 6, but it also work with a wide array of Android phones. And of course, it also works with the iPhone 6 Plus. These aluminum rings house a fisheye lens, a 0.67x wide-angle lens, and a macro lens. This is a great gift for iPhone 6 owners who are also huge photography fans.
Is there someone on your Christmas list that just can’t get over their old phone with that slide-out keyboard? Give their iPhone 6 an old-school touch with this slide-out keyboard case. This makes it easier for some people to type accurately. The manufacturers say this case will stay charged for up to two weeks. Seniors on your gift list may find this case’s keyboard easier to use than the on-screen keyboard.
Check out a demo of a house with SmartThings home automation installed in the video above.
If you’re intrigued by the idea of having a “smart home,” then this starter kit from SmartThings is the perfect first step. This kit includes one SmartThings Hub, one SmartSense motion sensor, one SmartSense open/closed sensor, and one SmartSense presence sensor. With these items, you can get notifications on your smartphone about the comings and goings of your family members.
You also get alerts in the event of break-ins and floods, and you can even use one of the sensors to help ensure that you never lose your keys again. The home of the future can be yours for relatively little money, and the ability to control your smart devices from your phone never gets old. There are no monthly fees, and set-up involves no messy wires and takes just 15 minutes. This is a wonderful gift for any husband who loves to tinker with new tech toys, or take on little jobs around the house.
Looking for a practical gift for a work colleague, or maybe a stocking stuffer for a tech savvy teen? A portable battery pack is a great option. One end has a Lightning connector, and the other end has a micro USB connector. To recharge, just stick this external battery into any device with a USB port.
This is a portable, self-contained charger for your smartphone or tablet, and it will work with both Android and newer Apple devices. This battery pack contains a 2600 mAh battery, which means it can fully recharge a new iPhone 6 and still have a bit of charge left over. With winter storms on the way, this is a great little gadget to have around the house so you can recharge your phone if your power goes out. It’s Apple MFi Certified, too.
Piel Frama is the maker of this decadent iPhone 6 case. The case is constructed of dyed crocodile leather and loads of Swarovski crystals. This wallet case has slots for four credit cards, plus a separate slot for bills or receipts, more than almost any other iPhone 6 wallet case we have seen. If you want a fashionable case to give to someone this holiday season, this is a great choice.
The PowerSkin PoP’n 2 for the iPhone 6 doesn’t wrap around the whole phone, or even the whole back of the phone, but it does cover part of the back of the iPhone 6. This battery boosting accessory protects part of your phone, while also increasing your battery life. If your giftee doesn’t want a traditional case, this might be a good accessory for them.
One satisfied customer shares her experiences with the Misfit Shine in the video above. The Shine is designed to fit into the “Bloom” necklace.
While we’re pretty psyched about the recent price drop on the Misfit Flash, the superior build quality of the Misfit Shine has always made it the more appealing wearable option. Plus, the Shine has started to come down in price, too. Another cool feature of the Shine is that you can place it in the elegant “Bloom” necklace.
If you hate the bulky look of most fitness tracker wristbands, this beautiful necklace is a great alternative. Simply clip your Misfit Shine into the necklace, and you’re good to go. The Bloom necklace is made from hand-polished stainless steel pendant, and has a magnetic feature that lets you securely mount the Shine.
