Giving gifts is not everyone’s love language. Although we might want to show the people we care about that we love them by giving them gifts that they’d appreciate, some of us are, quite simply, bad gift-givers.

For that reason, Smartcom has compiled a list of five foolproof gifts to fill someone special’s Christmas stocking this year.

1. A car charger

You’d think car chargers are something that most mobile phone users already have, but you’d be surprised at the amount of your friends and family who do not have a way of charging their phone while driving. Car chargers are practical and can be a godsend when someone needs a mobile connection, but is low on juice.

2. An external battery pack

Aside from needing to charge a phone in the car, and according to Murphy’s Law, many mobile users also find themselves low on battery power at the most inopportune times, when there is no way of charging their phone the traditional way. An external battery pack means your loved ones will never be faced with the dilemma of running out of power – ensuring that the perfect family selfie is always possible.

3. A wireless phone charger

Okay, so this year’s Christmas winners are chargers. If someone you know has a phone that supports wireless charging, why not spoil them with a wireless charger? By far the most convenient way to charge a smartphone!

4. PopSockets

If you’re looking for an affordable gift that is beautiful and practical, look no further than PopSockets. They come in a range of colours and designs that are sure to match the taste of someone close to you, and they can be used as grips for selfies or as a portrait kickstand for other photos. Because they can collapse, phones can still easily be stored in ones pocket with the PopSocket attached.

5. An armband case

If you have a friend or loved one that is a fitness fanatic, an armband case to take their smartphone along on their next exercise session is the perfect gift.
