3. Phone Case/Cover

Moto G6 Case
It is always a smart idea to keep your smartphone safe with a case or cover for it and there are many different options online from simple silicone covers to waterproof housings. You can also get some really unique case with specific designs and colors.


The easiest way to find a case or cover is to search on Amazon your cell phone name and see what options are available. For more popular phones like the Moto G6, there are plenty of options available but for older or less popular devices it can be harder to find a case or cover.

4. External Battery Pack

Solar Powered Battery Charger
Have you ever been away from a charger when your phone ran out of power or just want to make sure you're never stuck with a dead phone? An external battery pack is an easy and convenient way to keep your phone charged and ready no matter where you are. Acting as an additional battery that you can charge your phone or other devices from, an external battery is the perfect gift idea for anyone who spends time in the outdoors, or tends to forget to keep their phone charged.

External battery packs come in a variety of sizes and storage capacities, with most smaller than a phone and capable of charging a phone several times. The Anker Powercore 10000 is one great option that is small and portable and will recharge most phones 2-3 times. View the Anker Powercore 10000 on Amazon for price details.

6. Gift Cards for Buying Apps/Games on Google Play Store or Apple App Store

If you're not really sure what the latest game or online app the kids are playing a gift card can be a good option and let someone get what they really want. A gift card for Google Play store or Apple App store allows users to purchase apps or games. Amazon gift cards are also a great option as you can get anything from movies, apps, games, toys and more.


7. Headphones or Speaker

Some of the best accessories for a smartphone are headphones or portable speakers and there are plenty of great options available.

Bose Soundlink headphones
The Panasonic in-ear headphones have surprisingly great sound while also significantly reducing outside noises. These are small, yet powerful headphones at a great deal.

For headphones with sound and noise cancelling, consider the Bose Soundlink around ear headphones which can connect to your device wirelessly and includes a long lasting rechargeable battery.

When it comes to speakers, there are many options ranging from small and portable, to large and powerful. Adventurous music listeners will find the JBL Clip 2 perfect for attaching to a backpack or belt while on the go and it has IPX7 Waterproof rating.

The Anker Soundcore is a little larger, and more suited to causal gatherings indoors or out. It has 24hrs of playback time and connects to any smartphone via Bluetooth.


8. Extra Phone Storage

Samsung 64 GB MicroSD Card
A common issue many smartphone users have is running out of storage space. And with most of Tracfone's smartphones only featuring 16 GB internal storage, using a MicroSD card for external storage is a necessary option. External storage is great for adding music, videos, podcasts or more. Most smartphones accept at least 64 GB additional storage, but double check with your model.

The Samsung 64GB MicroSD Card is a popular option that comes with an SD card adapter and is at a great price.


9. Camera Accessories and Lenses

Camera Lens Kit
Most smartphones come with pretty good cameras but they are limited by the lens already built into the phone. However, there are a number of lens attachments which can change the view to make it wide-angle, telephoto or even macro! This Camera Lens Kit on Amazon offers a variety of different lens options to try out on your phone.

10. Smartwatch

Our final gift idea is a popular choice these days that packs a huge number of features and convenience into a device that fits on your wrist and acts like a watch.

Apple Smartwatch
Smartwatches, paired with a smartphone, allow users to answer phone calls, send texts, check notifications and more without touching their phone. Many are also waterproof, for those with active lifestyles, and provide exercise and heart-rate tracking.

Popular Smartwatch Options:
Apple Watch Series 3
Huawei Watch 2 Sport Smartwatch
Samsung Gear Sport Smartwatch
