15 gifts for the social media addict in your life

Welcome to the 2016 TechCrunch Holiday Gift Guide! We’ll be rolling out a bunch of guides leading up to Christmas, hopefully making your holiday shopping a little easier. Looking for gifts for others on your list? Check out our full 2016 Gift Guide Hub.

Whether it’s for work or for fun, you probably know someone who pretty much lives on Facebook/Instagram/Snapchat/all-of-the-above.

Buying them a gift? We can help. These are the things our social team loves — from stuff that helps them do their jobs, to the stuff they just use every day, to stuff that is just fun.


Snapchat Spectacles

These will be a hard find, as the $130 Spectacles have gone on sale out of vending machines in various pop up locations like Venice Beach. There’s also a New York City pop up location where you can get them too. Here’s what it’s like to use them. 


Prynt case

Prynt turns your smartphone into a Polaroid camera thanks to a phone case that can print instant photos. In addition to the hardware component. The $150 case started out as a Kickstarter project but has now raised $7 million and can be found on Amazon and Best Buy.


Instagram throw pillows

A company called Stitchta wants to turn your Instagram photos into cute custom throw pillows that’ll run you about $50 each


DJI Osmo Mobile stabilizing rig

If you’ve ever gone live on Facebook or Periscope, you know how hard it is to stabilize the video you’re capturing. This $300 rig keeps things stable without sacrificing portability.


Mophie charging case

Social media apps like Snapchat and Instagram drain your battery in no time flat. Mophie’s charging cases can help with that without complicating your setup very much. Just make sure you know what type of phone they’ve got and buy accordingly.

Also of interest: Mophie’s Force Charge wireless charging system.


A Jetpack MiFi personal hotspot

This has been a lifesaver on many occasions for our social team. In an area with spotty WiFi and need to get your laptop online to post something? The MiFi Jetpack has you covered.


Photojojo iPhone lenses

Sometimes your smartphone’s built in lens just doesn’t get the job done.

Photojojo sells kits of fun magnetic lenses for iPhones and Android phones/tablets. The lenses are made of aluminum and outfitted with thick, high-clarity glass, the website claims. Lenses include wide and macro, fisheye, telephoto, super fisheye and a polarizer. When they’re not in use, just pop them in your pocket or bag.


Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 Wireless headphones

These are our favorite headphones. They run around $375 and have active noise cancelling, 22-hour battery life with both Bluetooth and Noise Gard.


Dropbox subscription

Need a place for large video files or a high volume of photos? Dropbox is $99 a year for 1 TB of storage, and makes it easy to get your stuff from device to device.


Twitter tats

Who wouldn’t want to brand themselves with a Kanye tweet? These twitter tats come in $10 packs of 5.


Anything Pusheen-related

Pusheen is a jolly cat that loves food. He may look familiar because he’s a Facebook Messenger sticker. This site has a ton of awesome Pusheen themed items. Onesie and stuffed animals highly recommended for any Pusheen lover.


Magnets of your Instagram photos

Sticky9 lets you turn your Instagram photos into magnets for the fridge or computer or anywhere magnetic.


Ceramic hashtag candy dish

For a friend who loves Twitter and candy. $10.


TechCrunch coffee mug

Shameless plug: the TechCrunch store has a few cool accessories.


Facebook Like oven mitt

This Facebook ‘Like’ mitt will surely improve your popularity in the kitchen.
