Christmas and Holiday Phone Charms

Updated on November 10, 2013

Get into the Holiday Mood with a Christmas Phone Charm

A cell phone charm is a small trinket that is attached to a cell phone or cell phone case. They are similar to charms worn on bracelets. The first time I saw one was several years ago, when my mother-in-law showed me one that she had made for herself. There is not much information about who created the first cell phone charm, but It is thought that cell phone charms originated in Japan in about 2004. Since then, they have spread around the world and are increasing in popularity as a functional and fun phone accessory. They also make a great, inexpensive gift or stocking stuffer.

The charm attached to a cell phone in a pocket or purse can be left hanging outside making it easier to find and grab your phone and pull it out of a pocket or handbag. Some charms indicate the phone is ringing with a flashing light - especially helpful if the phone is in silent mode with the ringer turned off. They can also be used as zipper pulls or attached to iPods and other devices.

Phone charms are an inexpensive and fun way to personalize your cell phone and make it unique. A cell phone charm can be changed with the season. Choose from many different holiday themes induding Angels, Santa Claus, Christmas Trees, snowmen, Disney Characters and many other holiday designs.

Or if you prefer, see how you can quickly and easily make your own unique Christmas phone charm with a few simple tools and some inexpensive supplies.
