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 2 ($129) - The cheapest AirPods are getting on in years, but still make a great gift for the holidays, particularly at lower prices.
  • AirPods 3 ($169) - Redesigned in 2021, AirPods 3 are the latest version of Apple's most beloved accessory.
  • AirPods Pro 2 ($250) - Apple's AirPods Pro 2 earphones feature 2x better noise-canceling technology, improved Transparency mode, and an H2 chip.
  • Apple Pencil 2 ($129) - Pair a new Apple Pencil 2 with the latest iPad Air and iPad Pro models for a smooth illustrating or note-taking experience.
  • Apple Watch 8 (starting at $399) - The newest Apple Watch has many of the same features as the 7, with an added temperature sensor and car crash detection functionality.
  • 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 2021 update as well thanks to the A13 Bionic processor.
  • iPad Air (starting at $600) - The new iPad Air with an edge-to-edge 10.9-inch display, M1 chip, and Touch ID power button.
  • MacBook Pro (starting at $1,999) - The all-new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros are the best all-around notebooks on the market, equipped with Apple's M1 Pro and M1 Max chips.

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.

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.
You are funny.
