Koostik Speakers

Beautiful hand made wooden iPhone & iPad docks.

Suggested by iamlving

They are hand made out of beautiful hard woods (and beetle kill pine - my favorite) and they also amplify the sound of my iphone's speakers. By far my favorite iphone accessory.

Judy Lee: These are beautiful, how's the sound?

iamlving: I've noticed the sound is 'warmed' up by the koostik, as well as an volume increase of about 2-3 fold.

Added to Your List

VuPoint Wireless Color Photo Printer

This is a pretty cool gift to give that prints photos right off of your iPhone or iPad. It's about $110 on Amazon.

Amanda: A note of caution: the printer uses special paper rather than an ink cartridge, which sounds great until you realize that each paper cartridge costs about $25 and is only good for twelve prints. $2/print is pretty steep even with the convenience factor.

Jackie: Oh wow! That is good to know...thanks!

Added to Your List

This is a great iPhone accessory for anyone that owns their own business or is just starting out. I've seen a number of artists using this to sell their work at fairs, etc.

Suggested by sam.k

CustomBuds headphones make great little gift that you can personalize. Customize your own earbuds based on tons of different color combinations (literally!). They sound great, they're affordable, and they come with a little carrying case and extra silicon tips. I'd recommend CustomBuds (or a gift card) for any iPhone or iPod owner.

Jackie: This is definitely a good idea for a gift and a nice alternative that they can be customized! Great stocking stuffer idea as well :)

Eirik Somerville: Here is a better picture:

This would be a nice gift for the iPhone 4/4S newbie who just can't get used to the screen-touch keyboard. This particular keyboard is the backlight edition which a lot of other brands don't have. I also noticed that BoxWave offers a vertical keyboard too if that's preferred (& comes in white). Costs about $60 on Amazon.

This is a great gift for anyone who uses their iPhone video camera a lot. You can record yourself for a vlog or multitask while using FaceTime. It frees your hands but still allows you to use your video camera. A bit pricey though - $159.

You can never really go wrong with a gift card. It's great as a last minute gift or even a gift for that person that already has every cool gadget out there. With an iTunes gift card they can splurge on that app they've been wanting or new music.
