Tired of scratching your head trying to figure out what is the next gift to give? The kids are growing up fast and each year this question gets tougher. Don’t you fret. Take a step back and think about this. We are living in a digital world and this time round we are going to indulge in the teenager’s fancy.

Let’s take a look at what they already possess. Bingo! A mobile phone. Most teenagers nowadays do have such a thing. Now, no any other gift can really beat this one. ( Apart from giving them the latest phone model.) Therefore, let’s take that extremely important object in their lives and accessorize it.

Below are  a couple of cool phone gadgets which will go very well with their precious mobile phones. Why not then, take this opportunity and present them as gifts?

smashed phone

The LoveHandle universal grip
Is your teen prone to dropping his/her phone? Or do they actually have a “crash phone” (as one of my friend playfully put it) as we speak? That is a phone with a smashed screen due to dropping. Well the LoveHandle may very well be the solution to such problem.

The LoveHandle universal grip is a small gadget used to enable firmer grip on your phone. It is a grip attachment for smartphone and mini tablet which adheres to the device by a strong but removable (no residue) peel and stick adhesive. It has a slim-profile pocket-friendly design with a soft and comfortable elastic grip.

Your teen will love this gadget because it enables them to take better selfies, one-handed photos and texting and more stable videos.

Pros

  • Works well with TPU cases
  • The phone can be flipped to the back of your hand thus allowing you to freely use your hand.

Cons

  • Not compatible to phones with glass back or silicon and gel case
  • Some people say that it looses its elasticity and become less tight with use.

Go ahead and try one for your teen, to securely guard their phone from falling.

Tip: Metal cell phone finger ring and pop socket are two other grip attachment choices. However, some people prefer LoveHandle flexibility over them.

It is considered as one of the best chargers.

To sum it all

Adding value to something that someone already possess and love can go a long way. You will never know unless you try it out. There is no need to reinvent the wheel by banging your head with a rock until it cracks open. Simple things are there for us to make use off. Endless clues are left lying around in our daily life. It is purely up to us to take the hint instead of choosing complexity.

Teenagers (as human usually do) always find a way to let you know of what they want or need. Paying close attention to them without their knowledge will reveal that.

Stop beating yourself up. Instead, observe, analyze and take notes. Soon, you will come up with a list of possible gifts you can give your specific teenager.

I do hope that this list of cool phone gadgets is of great use to you.
