With the recent release of the iPhone 12 lineup, Apple has made the bold decision to no longer include the “charging block” in the device’s packaging (shocking — we know!).

If you’re searching for the perfect gift to get a friend or loved one who’s recently ordered or received one of the new iPhones, you’re better off getting them something they need and this No. 1 best-selling wall charger from Anker is the perfect solution.

2. UrbanEars Alby Wireless Earbuds, $69

Newly-released UrbanEars Luma also available for $99

While we’re on the subject of the iPhone 12, you may have heard that Apple has also removed the standard wired EarPods from the phones’ packaging. Since the brand’s AirPods are still a bit pricy, even while on sale, it may be worth trying another earbud option.

The much more affordable UrbanEars Alby is the perfect alternative as it offers premium sound quality in a sleek package that’s not just white.

3. Logitech K380 Multi-Device Bluetooth Keyboard, $39.99

If your techie buddy is always texting on their phone or is always typing away on their tablet or laptop, an external keyboard is both a thoughtful and practical gift they’d definitely appreciate.

While premium options retail for over $90, the viral and compact Logitech K380 is just as solid, if not better. In addition to being available in three colors, this chic keyboard can be used across three devices with just the press of a button.

4. Akaso Underwater Wi-Fi Sports Action Camera, $54.99

If you’re shopping for the tech-lover who is obsessed with capturing every moment, this action camera is a no-brainer. It’s currently a No. 1 best seller on Amazon and is raved about for being a GoPro dupe. The general consensus among shoppers is that it offers “the same features” as the much more expensive device.

5. PhoneSoap Wireless, $99.95

The PhoneSoap Wireless is the perfect gift for both germaphobes and those who would rather rest their phones on a charging pad and go about their day.

This genius device wirelessly charges any smartphone while killing 99.9 percent of germs on its surface in just 10 minutes. With studies showing that phones can be 10 times dirtier than a toilet set, this may be the best gift ever.
