If you happened to walk by an Apple store earlier today and saw a massive line of people waiting to get in but had no idea what those people were waiting for, let me explain: Apple just released the new line in their iPhone series, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Now that you’re caught up, let me just admit right now that I am really excited about this and have decided to write a short article on just a few iPhone 6 tech-cessories that I’m considering to get (in case you didn’t notice the iPhone paraphernalia above).

Without falling into any boring and pointless iPhone vs. Android debates, or “Samsung did it first” arguments, I present four accessories for the 4.7 inch iPhone 6 that I might purchase…. once  I actually get the phone.

1. The Otterbox case. All cell phones are expensive and sensitive pieces of equipment. iPhone users are probably more familiar with this than most (especially the expensive part). So it would make sense to at least put in a little effort to protect your fragile and costly piece of tech right? The Otterbox is a durable three layered case that protects the entire phone from scratches and dust as well as a little extra protection for those “Oh S—” moments when your phone slips away from you and plummets to the ground. The built in screen protector also prevents annoying little cracks from developing on your screen.

2. iPhone Verus Wallet case. I’ve seen many people use these cases and I’m having a difficult time deciding whether or not these are beneficial. While it is very convenient to have both your phone and wallet in the same place, it could be a problem simply because you have your phone and wallet in the same place. On the plus side you’ll never forget to bring your phone or wallet because they’ll be one and the same and you’ll have fewer things to carry around with you, however in the event that you lose your phone, which honestly probably happens more times than anyone would like,  you will also end up losing your wallet.

3. iPhone 6 Armband case. This little device is perfect for workouts. iPhones only seem to get bigger and bigger every year making them a more and more annoying to have in your pocket when trying to run or bike somewhere. Instead of having a giant 4.7 inch, 127 gram block of expensive and delicate technology rattling around in my pocket during a run or bike ride, i’d rather have it secure somewhere safe but close enough that I can still use it, like strapped securely to my arm in an anti-slip armband.

4. iPhone 6 IQ Shield screen protector. These screen protectors essentially cover your phone screen with a thin layer of a form of polyethylene terephthalate, which is chemistry-speak for a polyester that is flexible, transparent, and durable enough to keep your phone screen pristine. These screen protectors are particularly nice because once installed, you hardly notice that it’s there. The PET film sticks directly on your phone and is thin and clear enough that it appears that nothing is there. They also work to keep dust and oils off your phone, meaning that you won’t get as many annoying dirty fingerprint marks all over your screen. It is also worth noting, that the IQ screen can be used without or with additional cases for protection, however, if you are looking to protect your phone from fall damage, they should not be used alone.

A Gift for Any Guy

( Portable Grill – Uncommon Goods, iPhone case – Mophie, Scratch off map – Uncommon Goods, T-shirt – Vineyard Vines, Cuff Links – Real Simple, Sunglasses – RayBan, Watch – Nordstrom, Face Mug – Uncommon Goods, Gloves – Real Simple )

I have always been one to think that shopping for guys is so difficult, but it no longer has to be. Whether you need a present for a guy in your life for graduation, a birthday, or even a nice surprise, look no further! Anyone is bound to love one of these great gifts.

The portable briefcase grill is the perfect addition to any kebab lover’s life. It fits within a briefcase (if you choose to keep it there) that happens to be perfect for a meal for two.

The iPhone charging on the go case is not only a gift just for guys. Anyone and everyone should have one if they carry an iPhone everyday. When your phone dies, it sometimes feels like there may never be a charger in site. This case will charge your phone on the go- plus, its stylish and sleek! Don’t ever be stuck with a dead phone again.

Do you know a person with the travel bug? I know I do. This scratch map is looks awesome, plus it’s great to keep track of all the places you have visited. Just take a coin and scratch off the places you have visited, revealing color in their place.

I’ll admit, I love vineyard vines t-shirts. They are so comfortable and stylish. They make the perfect gift for any guy (or girl) who has a pretty style, or one that just enjoys colorful shirts with a fun logo. There are so many colors and styles you can’t go wrong!

These cuff links are for the businessman. They are perfect for any man’s tuxedo and add a touch of color. Their packaging doesn’t hurt either!

RayBan sunglasses are a classic at any age. Be careful though, because this particular style does not always fit every face. They have so many to choose from though that it shouldn’t be any problem. They are of great quality and protect your eyes from harmful rays.

This Nixon watch has just enough edge as style. Its leather strap makes it look a little old fashioned but the face makes it look sleek and modern. It even keeps track of the date for those guys who can’t always remember what day it is like me.

For any man stuck in the cold often, cashmere blend gloves are the perfect solution. They protect your hands while providing a fashionable touch. Who ever is lucky enough to receive these may never take them off!

Last but definitely not least, the cookie face mug. Let me just say I would not be opposed to receiving one of these every birthday. This mug is beyond cool. It is perfect for milk and cookie combinations or even donuts and coffee, whatever you prefer. Plus, it brightens anyone’s day.

Don’t ever be stuck looking for a gift and settling on something mediocre.
