Shopping for the holidays can be stressful, especially if you don’t know what to get for everyone on your list. Device accessories are great stocking stuffers and will make anyone on your list happy. Some classics include phone cases, earbuds or headphones, and bluetooth speakers. There are also some more tech-savvy gifts like the Hum system for your vehicle and the Palm smartphone companion.
Phone cases and covers are easy-to-give gifts that come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors. Most cases are built to protect your smartphone and some brands are known for making cases for this specific purpose. If your gift recipient needs a durable case, these are the best choice. If they prefer something more decorative, there are styles to fit just about any personality.
Earbuds and headphones
Having good audio quality is important for music and video lovers, which is why earbuds and headphones make great stocking stuffers. Whether you are looking for the “latest and greatest” or simple headphones to match your loved one’s style, there is an option for everyone. Some smartphones don’t have headphone jacks, so be sure to ask for help in-store if this is the case.
These speakers are fun to use and portable, so they make great gifts for people who enjoy music anywhere. Some of the most popular brands include Ultimate Ears, JBL, and Bose. Designs, sizes, and colors vary and there are a variety of choices for every price range.
If you are looking for a stocking stuffer with a wow factor, a smartwatch might be a good choice. There are many options available including those with a traditional look and some made for fitness lovers.
- The Gizmowatch is designed for children, merging fitness, fun, and safety. It will allow your children to send out preselected text messages and call up to ten people. It also has a tracking feature to help protect your child.
- A popular smartwatch option is the Galaxy Watch. It is stylish and easy-to-use, which means it can be a gift for almost anyone on your list. It has a long battery life and allows you to use many apps, although not as many as some other watches.
- If you are buying accessories for an iPhone user, an Apple Watch is a good choice. Series 4 has been upgraded with a better speaker and still boasts the same bright, clear display and customizable options. It also comes with a larger screen and fitness features to help keep your loved one healthy.
- Fitbit is known for producing innovative, wearable fitness products, but started producing smartwatches in 2017. Their Versa watch offers iconic fitness tracking features, as well as a long battery life, music storage, and Fitbit Pay.
Hum+ and Humx
The Hum system offers a variety of safety features in an easy-to-use product for Verizon customers. Simply download the app, set up an account, and plug the Hum+ or Humx into the car. If safety if a concern for you and your loved ones, this device accessory makes a thoughtful stocking stuffer.
The system offers sixteen safety features, including emergency assistance when a crash is detected, GPS pinpointed roadside assistance, and stolen vehicle assistance. If the person on your gift list is not great at remembering maintenance, the Hum system can help with that too. It has diagnostics systems that can alert the driver to minor maintenance issues, maintenance schedules, and even a mechanics hotline. Other services Hum provides include:
- Vehicle usage tracking
- Boundary alerts
- Speed monitoring
- Travel and local discounts
- Safety rating scores
- NumberShare to help you make calls
- A WiFi hotspot (Humx only)
Palm companion products
Also exclusive for Verizon customers is the Palm companion. This device is a great option for the more tech-savvy on your gift list or for those who don’t like to carry a large smartphone everywhere. The Palm is much smaller than a smartphone, but offers many of the same features. It has a beautiful display, 12 MP camera, and 7.5 hours of battery life.
With NumberShare, your loved one can sync their smartphone with their Palm companion so they can stay connected on-the-go. They will be able to get calls, texts, and alerts, but only the ones they choose, with the Life Mode feature. Users can track fitness, post on social media, and store the Palm easily (and fashionably) in a case, wristlet, or armband.
