Thanks to U.S. Cellular for sponsoring this post. Join their high-quality network and stay connected.

Need help in selecting the right holiday gift for those on your list? For passions ranging from fitness to gaming and everything in between, wireless accessories can be a great gift for loved ones looking to simplify and enhance their favorite activities.

Even children getting their first wireless device this holiday season can benefit from some great wireless accessories. Be sure to check out the free, downloadable U.S. Cellular Parent-Child Agreement to make sure your kids know the boundaries when it comes to cell phone use. 

Wireless Devices and Cutting Edge Accessories

Wireless devices play an important role in our daily routines. According to a recent U.S. Cellular survey, 38 percent of smartphone users play games on their phones daily, 49 percent check the latest news, 14 percent use GPS and 34 percent use their phone to help monitor their health. Powered by U.S. Cellular’s high-speed network with national coverage, mobile devices such as the Galaxy S6 Edge can work in tandem with cutting-edge accessories to help you monitor your health and fitness, listen to your favorite songs or provide a more convenient and unique messaging experience.

Hot tech accessory gifts this year:

  • OtterBox Commuter Case ($39.99): With defense against drops, dust and scratches, along with two layers of protection, the OtterBox Commuter case is sleek enough to easily fit in your pocket while also protecting against the elements, perfect for everyday use or for the adventurer in your life.

I have an OtterBox for one of my phones and I can say they are great cases and do protect your phone quite well.

  • Belkin WeMo Insight Switch ($59.99): For the person on your list looking to simplify their life, the Insight Switch connects your home electronics to your Wi-Fi network, allowing you to turn them on and off from anywhere using your phone or tablet. It can also put your home electronics on a schedule as well as monitor your energy usage and send information to your phone or tablet.

I might have to get one of these for myself – this device looks super cool and practical, which is why it made our list!

  • Parrot Rolling Spider Drone ($99.99): For the fun-loving adult or child on your list, the Parrot Rolling Spider is an ultra-compact drone controlled by your smartphone. It flies indoors and outdoors with speed and stability, and you can take photos with its vertical camera simply by hitting the ‘photo’ icon in the accompanying app on your smartphone screen. Its detachable wheels make it easy to roll from the floor to the ceiling.

This just looks cool to have. The ability to fly with it and take pictures would be really neat though, I’d love to hover above our farm and take some awesome shots. 

  • Samsung Gear S2 ($349.99): Perfect for the health conscious person on your list who wants to stay connected, the Gear S2 makes it easy to take charge of your health while also staying up-to-date on to what is important to them. The Gear S2 monitors daily activities, counts your steps, and measures your pulse as well as your water vs. caffeine intake. In addition to answering calls and texts, the Gear S2 also makes it easy to read an email, check out a map, listen to music or access your favorite apps right from your wrist.

Not only can you monitor your health activities, but you can answer phone calls — yeah, this is the device you need to replace all the others that don’t really do much besides some simple monitoring.

    These are all great ideas. I think the Otterbox case is the best. I’ve never understood people buying a $400 phone and then not protecting it.

    I LOVE my otterbox. I left my phone on top of my car once and it flew off. I got a scuff on the case, but the phone was perfect. It’s saved me so many times!

    I would love to have this Belkin WeMo Insight Switch. We have a night light in our bedroom but it is on a dresser that I have to get out of bed to reach it. So I have to turn it off at night and then find my way to bed in the dark without stepping on a cat. This switch would be so cool, and make things easier for me 🙂

    Thanks for the list! I have a new case for my phone on my Christmas list.

  34. Deshawn Keiner December 11, 2015 at 1:30 pm #

    Thank you for sharing your list. I would be interested in getting the otter box for my two teenagers. They have phones and even though I have insurance on them I don’t want to have to use it. Kids can be so careless. I also loved the drone. My kids would definitely use that to creep me out.
