These are the best gifts you can give an iPhone owner. I spend every day testing the latest and greatest cases, accessories and gadgets and if I was putting together a Christmas list, these would be at the top of it.
From a new case to amazing headphones, chargers, and cables, this guide covers everything you can think of for an iPhone owner. These work with new and older iPhones, so you can make a big impression no matter which iPhone they own or your budget.
The great thing about giving one of these gifts is that each of these is something that the person will use every day. That’s a thoughtful gift and one that makes a difference every time the person uses it.

One of Our Favorite Cases
A new iPhone case is a great gift. You do need to know which iPhone the person owns since each case fits slightly differently. I’m a huge fan of the Pitaka MagEZ minimal iPhone case that includes the option to mount to a vent mount in the car.
My other favorites include the BodyGuardz Momentum and the Case-Mate Tough Speckled. I’m also a fan of the Speck Mossy Oak cases, and the Coach cases at Verizon are great for fashion forward users. There are plenty of other great options in the links below.

While it’s on the mote expensive side, the Apple Watch is a great gift for anyone with an iPhone.
The Apple Watch 3 is $199, which is a great buy in 2019 even with newer models available.
We’re still seeing a ton of Apple Watch 4 deals and a few Apple Watch 5 deals.
Here’s a rundown of all the things the Apple Watch can do.
The Powerbeats Pro headphones are an awesome gift for iPhone users that want to work out. With a bass-forward sound profile, sealed design and ear hooks that keep them on when running and moving around a lot at the gym.
The case is a little big, but the sound is amazing and they definitely get me more pumped up than standard AirPods. Thanks to Verizon for sending these over to test out.
The AirPods Pro are the top of the line AirPods with a sealed design and active noise canceling. This can block out the sound around you on a plane or at a coffee shop. The fit and the sound quality are both better than the standard AirPods and the case includes wireless charging by default. Verizon sent over a pair for us to test, and they have them in stock with delivery by Christmas at this point.
Jabra Elite 75t
The Jabra Elite 75t wireless headphones are a great AirPods alternative. They fit great, the case is small and the sound quality is excellent with a sealed design. Calls sound good and you can connect with Google Assistant, Alexa or Siri. You can set a custom EQ, and like the AirPods Pro, there is a hear through mode to hear what’s happening around you.
The newer iPhones all support wireless charging, which is awesome for a nightstand or a desk. Instead of fumbling for a cable, just set the phone on the charger and it will start to charge up.
If you want a great one for your desk, check out the Aukey USB C Hub with built-in wireless charger for $44.99 at Amazon.
Cleaning Kit or PhoneSoap
Two great accessories to clean up a phone make our list. Otterbox offers a detail kit for phones that is just $7.95 and includes everything you need to clean your phone up in a small carry case. It’s perfect to stick in a backpack or purse.
At home, my wife and I love the PhoneSoap cleaners. These various cleaners use UV light to kill germs and keep phones and accessories clean. This is an accessory my wife uses several times a day and I’ve bought her two of them so far. PhoneSoap even offers a bigger HomeSoap to clean bigger items and a mobile PhoneSoap to clean on the go.
You can never go wrong with a portable battery charger that they can put in a bag or purse so they never run out of power.
- AUKEY 8000mAh Wireless Charging Power Bank – 29.99
- Anker Powercore 10000 – $29.99
- Mophie Poweerstation PD – $59.99
These are all great options that will fast charge the iPhone 8 or newer, support multiple device charging at the same time, and the first one includes a wireless charger.
New Cables and Fast Chargers
In addition to backup batteries, a better charger for your car, home and USB C to Lightning cables are great gifts. With a compatible charger and one of these cables, they can charge 50% of the iPhone battery in 30 minutes with the iPhone 8 or newer.
Mophie 3-in-1 Charger
While I’ve already covered a number of charging options, the Mophie 3-in-1 wireless charging pad can charge up all the essential iPhone owner items at once and it looks nice on a nightstand.
This includes wireless AirPods charging, an Apple Watch charger, and a wireless phone charger. The phone charger placement can be finicky at times, but it’s still an awesome gift.
Moment Case and Lenses
If you’re buying for an iPhone photographer, the Moment iPhone case and Moment lenses are an awesome gift.
Moment makes a range of lenses including fisheye, wide 18mm, anamorphic, tele 58mm, and a macro lens.
These mount to the Moment iPhone case and deliver a ton of awesome photography options.
