Gifts For iPad Owners: 5 Great iPad Gift Ideas

Updated on September 5, 2014

Styli, Keyboards, Speakers and More!

Here are some great ipad gift ideas for the ipad lovers on your list.

iPad owners often seem like the kind of people who already have everything; they did, after all, manage to purchase an iPad! Lucky for you, you can use the iPad as a window into your friends' and family members' worlds, and as a jumping off point for buying the perfect gift.

Next time your proposed gift-recipient breaks out his or her iPad, take notes. Does the person have a stylus? A nice case? A keyboard? Other useful peripherals? If not, they you're all set! However, if you're getting one of the more expensive items on this list, you might want to drop a few hints to make sure that your friends or family members don't buy the items themselves!

#1: iPad Cases/Covers

Few things are sadder than spending hundreds of dollars on a fragile piece of electronic equipment, only to have your precious device scratched, dented, shattered, or otherwise broken. Show your gift-recipient you care by protecting something they care about!

The BearMotion Portfolio Case

Bear Motion (TM) Genuine Leather Case for iPad2 / iPad 3 / iPad 4 (Black)

This updated version of the BearMotion is just as awesome as the original, but compatible with later iPads. Users really appreciated the feel and quality of the leather. This definitely makes your iPad business-meeting ready!

 

#2: iPad Keyboards and Keyboard Cases

I love buying things from Logitech because they have quality products and awesome customer service. I recently reported an issue with a (non-iPad) keyboard that was more than four years old, and they sent me a replacement of a newer version of the same keyboard for free! This particular keyboard also works as a case.

Another Logitech keyboard. This one is a non-case device that comes with a stand.

 

Logitech Keyboard for the iPad - Make Writing a Breeze

In my opinion, a keyboard is pretty much essential if you're planning on doing any work on your iPad that requires a lot of writing, for example, if you're a freelance writer or content producer.


#3: iPad Styluses (Styli)

Princeton Art & Brush Sensu - Artist Brush for i Pad

Why you should give a stylus as a gift: A stylus hugely improves the usability of the iPad, especially for anyone who has difficulty using a touchscreen (which, just so you techno-junkies know, is a huge portion of the population - including myself!) Handwriting apps are much easier and more natural to use with a stylus. A stylus is also great for interacting with apps that have a lot of features on one screen, necessitating a smaller real estate for each button.


Sensu Digital Artist Brush & Stylus Chrome Color for use with I-Pad and Tablets-the best for your creative needs

My boyfriend raves about this stylus! The brush is amazingly sensitive and responsive, and the way that the stylus is put together means you get a full-size brush in your hands.

#4: iPad Speakers

Oontz - Big Sound, Little Price

If you want to get a lot of bang - let me take that back - boom for your buck, Oontz is the way to go. This tiny Bluetooth speaker packs a punch.

Don't take my word for it, though! Check out reviews, watch videos, and talk to friends before you decide which speakers would make the best gift.


Soundfreaq SFQ-01 Sound Platform Bluetooth Wireless Speaker (Black)

This wireless Bluetooth system looks good and produces really good sound.

 

#5: iPad Gaming Accessories

JOYSTICK-IT iPad Arcade Stick on ThinkGeek

What better gift to get someone with an iPad than an arcade stick? Instantly transform the iPad into a unique gaming system. The iPad arcade stick is configured to work with thousands of apps and games. My boyfriend was surprised and delighted to get this gift.

Even better than one joystick on your iPad is two joysticks!

iCADE - iPad Arcade Cabinet on ThinkGeek

How about this for an iPad related gift idea? Your recipient can play games in style with the iCade, which proudly displays your iPad in truly retro fashion. It works with the iPad and the iPad 2. Tons of apps, including ones built by the granddady of all gaming (Atari), are designed to work with the iCade.

      Really liking the iCade... at $99 it seems a bit pricey though. Still, tempting for its retro goodness...
