With the festive season falling upon us, there are many who are already beginning to go into panic mode about what gifts to buy their loved ones this December. If you know someone who is something of a smartphone addict, we have the perfect present ideas for you.
Give the gift of cinema
The chances are that if your friend or family member spends a lot of time on their smartphone, they will be familiar with the various video features and apps that their device has to offer, such as Youtube and even Netflix, 4oD and BBC IPlayer.
A smartphone film projector is a great way in which they can watch their favourite clips and shows from their phone projected onto the wall, creating the ultimate smartphone cinema experience. You can purchase them for very little money too, with Cardboard Smart Projectors (which do work really well) being available for £15.99.
Trust us, they will be so grateful as they can sit back, relax and watch funny clips of pandas sneezing or cats running into glass doors in larger than life form.
Give the gift of power- literally
Your smartphone-loving pal is likely to have come across the never ending nightmare that is the low battery and we can guarantee that they will absolutely love one of the many hilarious chargers you can buy now as a quirky little gift.
One of our favourites is the Towlhub USB Paper Towel Charger due to its sheer practicality as a, well, paper towel holder and the fact that there are four USB ports on its base. This will charge any Apple or Samsung smartphone, or any really that use a USB cable. Oh, did we mention there is a removable owl wine stopper stuck on the top of it?
For friends who are constantly on the move, let the force be with them with the amazingly fun Star Wars R2D2 USB Hub. At 15 centimetres tall and with a total of four USB ports, your friend will look cooler than Skywalker himself as their own R2D2 sits perfectly in the coffee holder of their car.
Give the gift of smell
Make scented candles a thing of the past. We all know in this ever growing digital age, there is nothing that a smartphone can’t do, and if your text-loving friend is a fan of fragrance, the Scentee Smartphone Aroma Diffuser will be right up their street.
Simply plug the Diffuser into your smartphone’s headphone socket and you will then have the choice of five wonderful scent cartridges to use once you have synced your device up to it. Fill the air with lavender when you need to de-stress, or coffee when you could do with a quick pick-me-up.
Give the gift of memories
If you are looking for a more sentimental phone-based gift this Christmas, why not look to creating a personalised smartphone cover?
There are various places in which you can create covers that are filled with personal photographs for the iPhone range. Simply gather together a number of images that you know they will appreciate and treasure and send them over to be created.
Notonthehighstreet.com also has a wide range of fun phone covers of which some can be personalised and others purchased which you won’t really find anywhere else.
