The holiday season is upon is, which means it’s time to start the search for the perfect holiday gifts. We’ve rounded up our favorite phone accessories – from portable chargers to Bluetooth headphones, budget-conscious to splurge-worthy – for any smartphone owner on your list.


Budget Phone Accessory Gifts

PopSockets ($9.99 for most colors)



With 25 million units sold in 2017, PopSockets have been hailed as “the next big thing” in phone accessories. PopSockets are circular, collapsible grips you can affix to the back of your smartphone to make texting, calling and selfies more practical. A great stocking stuffer for the selfie-obsessed tween in your life, PopSockets come in countless colors, patterns and graphics (most costing just $9.99) and you can even upload your own photo or design for just $15!


Anker PowerCore+ mini ($14.99-$19.99)



The #1 phone accessory in our recent Twitter poll, garnering 67% of the vote, a portable power bank should be at the top of anyone’s holiday shopping list! The Anker PowerCore+ mini is the perfect stocking stuffer for your phone-obsessed relative: it’s lipstick-sized, comes in a variety of eye-catching colors, adds over one charge (6 hours talktime) to an iPhone 6, and starts at only $14.99! What’s more to love?


Mid-Range Phone Accessory Gifts

Anker 20100mAh PowerCore 20100 Portable Charger ($39.99)



An Amazon bestseller, this portable charger is double the size and cost of the PowerCore+ mini, but can charge the iPhone 7 a whopping seven times! With built-in PowerIQ and VoltageBoost delivering high-speed charging, the Anker PowerCore 20100 is a high-capacity portable charging powerhouse for the tech lover on the go.


Mpow 059 Wireless Bluetooth Headphones ($36.99)



Another Amazon bestseller, the Mpow 059 Bluetooth Over Ear Headphones are the perfect gift for any music-loving friend. Rather than sacrificing sound quality for noise cancellation, the Mpow 059 headphones were designed for a superior listening experience. With a Class 2 Bluetooth range of 33 feet and a choice of 5 inner-padding colors (all under $40), they’re a great everyday wireless headphone.


Splurge Phone Accessory Gifts

Moment (New) Wide Lens ($99.99)



Considered the best wide-angle lens attachment for photographers, the new Wide Lens from Moment promises beautiful, crisp photos that capture 2x what your cell phone’s built-in lens can. Made from cinema quality glass and compatible with most new smartphones, the Moment Wide Lens is a bit of a splurge gift at $99.99 but we guarantee it’ll make your favorite shutterbug’s day.


Beats Solo3 Wireless Bluetooth Headphones ($214.99)



For that special audiophile in your life, look no further than the latest Bluetooth headphones by Beats: the Solo3. More compact than the classic Beats headphones (and wireless!), with a battery that lasts 40+ hours, over a dozen colors to choose from, and a Class 1 Bluetooth range capable of seamlessly delivering sound from up to 120 feet away, the Solo3 is hands down one of the best wireless headphones on the market.
