Gifts For Student Who Never Goes Anywhere Without Their iPhone

Ah, the iPhone. The person who has the iPhone — and who never doesn't have the iPhone — only needs one gift. But surely there's more than one to recommend.

iTunes Credit

You can't go wrong with this. You're basically giving the person cash, but you're narrowing down the possible uses of that cash to the stuff on iTunes — books, movies, music, comics, video games — all the nonsense a person can choose from. You are sending the message that you want them to spend their gifted spacebucks on a bunch of somethings that will be fun. $20-$100.

Pseudo-Educational Games

Drop 7 is the ultimate quick-play iOS game that you can also suggest is educational... as much as adding the digits 1-7 is educational. Tiny Tower teaches, uh, building management. Contre Jour will make them appreciate art. Scan through our year's worth of Gaming Apps of the Day. Most of them are for iPhone; plenty are worth considering. Free-$3.

EARonic iPhone cases

They make it look like your iPhone is just your ear (or someone else's!) Do you need to be told that this would serve as a joke gift? $US20.

The Electree

This solar-powered iPhone charging tree is expensive, artsy, French and possibly not on sale. They sold through their first batch, but keep an eye on their blog to see if they're taking more orders. Surely every dorm room needs one of these. And surely it'd never get broken or rained on with beer. $US370.


    iTunes credit? What you're really advertising here is a gift for Apple.

      in the same way that suggesting buying someone Mario Kart is a gift for Nintendo..

    Im sorry I think Im on the wrong website... I was looking for where the articles arent fucking crap.

      yeah, not a fan of this article. I expect to see this sort of stuff on :(

    Expected docks, cases, fm transmitters. Tons of awesome iPhone related gifts. What is this.

      Paid advertising space disguised as an article...

      Definitely a paid ad. All in all, this is more of a Lifehacker style of article (topic wise).

      I mean... isn't Kotaku supposed to be about... you know - games?
