Christmas is coming, Christmas is coming! Like Paul Revere, the entire world has conspired to remind you that you need to get gifts. But lo, you’ve forgotten someone! If that someone is an Apple fan, take a look at the Apple gifts below for some last-minute inspiration.
Practical iPhone Case
I drop my phone literally every day. If I didn’t have a decent case, I would not be the kind of person who could own an iPhone. If you’ve got a clumsy friend, get them a high-quality case from Otterbox or Incipio.
Impractical iPhone Case
Don’t like the above case options? Hey, if you’re bored then you’re boring. Perhaps you’d prefer a case made of fuzz? Or one that makes you look like the victim of a glitter bomb? There’s also cases that turn your portable device into a book, the original smart device.
Headphone Cable Management
Grey felt, as decreed from on high, is the material of choice for all MacBook sleeves and cases. If your pal snagged a new MacBook Pro, pick up one of the many protective options while supplies last.
What a magical marriage of tech and tree! You can get a bamboo-covered wireless mouse for your beloved, which the description claims is not only sweat-resistant, but also “anti-radiation.” If you’re concerned that your wireless mouse is irradiating you, you better get a bamboo laptop too.
One of the saddest parts of the new MacBook Pro’s many changes is the lack of a light-up Apple logo. While this makes a lot of sense, it does mean that many of the cooler MacBook Pro decals no longer make much sense. If you’ve got a friend with an older MacBook Pro, though, there’s a wide variety of awesome decals out there.
Snag these patent-drawing style posters of the first Macintosh for the old-school Apple fan among your friends and family. Comes in a wide variety of sizes.
This stoneware megaphone horn holds your iPhone while its not in use and uses the principles of acoustics to amplify its speaker power without any wires or electricity. Great for parties, and it doubles as a leaky vase when not in use.
This sharp-looking rotating eight-ball will stick to your recipient’s dashboard (or whatever) and hold their phone in place with magnets. How do they work!?
Iconic is not the most recent book featuring glamour shots of Apple hardware, but it is the original. In particular, it features some nice shots of Apple’s older hardware, making it a great gift for the OG Apple fan in your life.
Pretend you work at an Apple store with this shirt. Comes in a variety of colors, but order fast, since it’s not eligible for Prime.
Steve Wozniak is definitely the lesser-known of the two Apple founders, but Apple fans known his fascinating autobiography will still be worth the read.
Steve was truly one of the visionary inventors of our time. This touching and lengthy biography by Walter Isaacson captures the brilliant-if-difficult genius behind Apple’s rise to fame.
As covered previously, I am an enormous klutz who should not be allowed to own expensive electronics. This means I have to practically shrink-wrap everything I own to avoid ruining it with spilled seltzer. This keyboard cover has saved my bacon more than once, and it’s also pretty attractive. You can even get a Zelda-themed version, which is pretty sweet.
First-party replacement bands for the Apple Watch range from “slightly expensive” to “outrageously overpriced.” Give you friend the gift of a more flexible style with a third-party replacement band for their Apple Watch.
This made-for-infomercials fever dream might actually be half-genius. Think about it: The iPad is the perfect vehicle for Netflix, and the bed is the perfect place for Netflix. But holding an iPad in bed? There has to be a better way! Is this half-spider abomination the solution? You decide.
Another one for the Apple Watch owners in your life: a combination iPhone and Apple Watch docking station for charging and display. Looks sharp!
The last refugee of the hard-core gift-giving procrastinator, iTunes gift cards are always an option. Just don’t expect any nominations for sainthood.
