If you're on the hunt for the best gifts to buy an Apple fan this year, we've put together a helpful guide to point you in the right direction. While personal preference always plays a part in gift giving, sometimes it can be hard to come up with any ideas for someone in your life who loves tech and Apple products.

The gifts in this guide largely relate to products created by Apple and third-party accessories that work well with Apple's devices. We've divided things up by Apple Products; Cases, Skins, and Screen Protectors; Charging; Audio; TVs; Smart Home; and Miscellaneous. Be sure to save this guide and browse it throughout the year whenever you need to buy a birthday gift or other present for a loved one.

Apple Products

If your budget allows for it, Apple has numerous devices that make for solid gift giving ideas. If the person you're buying for subscribes to Apple Music, AirPods and HomePod mini are great companions to the streaming music service. For anyone active on your shopping list, the new Apple Watch SE is a great workout companion at an affordable price point.

  • HomePod mini ($99) - A smaller version of the HomePod at a much more affordable price perfect for holiday gift-giving.
  • AirPods ($199) - With their new wireless charging feature, AirPods continue to be one of Apple's most loved products.
  • Apple Pencil 2 ($125) - Pair a new Apple Pencil 2 with the latest iPad Air and iPad Pro models for a smooth illustrating or note-taking experience.
  • AirPods Pro ($250) - The original AirPods get a Pro upgrade with active noise cancellation and three sizes of soft silicone tips for a more secure fit.
  • Apple Watch SE (starting at $280) - The cheaper alternative of the mainline Apple Watch Series 6, the SE models still pack a ton of new features into a cheaper price tag
  • 10.2-inch iPad (starting at $330) - If you don't want to spend as much on an iPad Pro, Apple's entry level iPad got a 2020 update as well thanks to the A12 Bionic processor.
  • iPad Air (starting at $600) - The new iPad Air with an edge-to-edge 10.9-inch display and Touch ID power button.
  • MacBook Air (starting at $1,000) - Upgraded with Apple's new M1 chip, the 2020 MacBook Air brings major speed and efficiency improvements to the lower-cost MacBook line.

For those with new iPhone 12 series, I think MagSafe Duo with 20W USB-C Power Adapter (too bad it isn't a single SKU) would be a great present. It's priced high enough that many wouldn't want to buy one out of their pocket. But it's nice to have.

This gift guide has TV's and an Apple TV remote but not the Apple TV itself?

Meanwhile the Homepod mini is sold out until Valentines day. Pick up a Turbo-Man while you are at it.
