AppAdvice’s ultimate accessory gift guide for women

December 9, 2015

We can’t forget the women in our lives, and today our accessory gift guide series is continuing with seven great ideas for any iPhone, iPad, or Apple Watch owner.

Portable power

Rebecca Minkoff Charging Wristlet for the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6s, $120


There are a lot more practical – and better looking – ways to charge an iPhone 6s than Apple’s less-than-appealing new battery case. Once you open up the fashionable wristlet from Rebecca Minkoff, you can protect your iPhone 6s/6 while charging it with a built-in 3,500mAH cell. The interior of the wristlet also offers two slots for credit cards or cash.

The solution costs $120 and can be ordered now from Nordstrom. You can select from a brown, black, or blue version made with real leather.

Watch this

Sena Leather Watch Case for the Apple Watch, $79.95


Doing double duty as a charging stand and travel case, Sena’s beautiful solution is made with real European leather. Compatible with all watch sizes and bands, the device is protected with a bed of microsuede lining. You can charge your watch on its side to activate the handy Nightstand Mode in WatchOS 2.0. When you’re ready to hit the road, the magnetic closure lid quickly and easily snaps on the top. It can also be used to elevate the stand while at home.

Available in black, the case can be purchased now from Sena for $79.95. You’ll need to provide your own Apple Watch charging cable.

Glamorous protection

Speck Jonathan Adler CandyShell Inked Case for the iPhone 6s/6 or iPhone 6s/6 Plus, $49.95 and up


Featuring a number of beautiful designs from Jonathan Adler, Speck’s special line of CandyShell Inked cases offer two distinct layers of protection. A harder exterior layer disperses impact while the inner portion absorbs shock. A raised bezel helps protect the screen from scratches during a drop or when the handset is placed face down.

The iPhone 6s/6 case retails for $49.95 while the iPhone 6s/6 Plus case is $5 more. There are eight unique designs to select from.

Dot marks the spot

Kate Spade New York Tiny Gold Dot iPad Air 2 case, $90


A nice folio case for the iPad Air 2, this stylish option features tiny metallic dots on the exterior to help it stand out from the crowd. There is also a gilded logo plate on the front.

Retailing for $90, you can select from a pink or black leather version.

Rock out

Layla Headphones from Frends, $149.95


Designed specifically for women, the Layla line from Frends is made to be both functional and fashionable. Along with an adjustable leather headband, the memory foam ear cushions can be worn with earrings. They can also collapse for easy travel and storage in the included case.

You can select from a wide variety of styles, including the pictured gunmetal and rose gold version, for $149.95. As a nice touch, music fans can change the look of the headphones by purchasing additional removable caps that start at $49.95 per pair.

Boconi 15-Inch Tyler Slim Mailbag Messenger Bag, $299.95


A stylish and slim option from Boconi, this messenger bag is made from soft Milano grained leather and features a number of different canvas accents. It can fit and protect up to a 15-inch MacBook with a padded sleeve. Another padded elastic pocket is a perfect place for an iPad. An interior organizer is made for smaller items like earbuds, keys, and documents. A special pocket can protect your passport or wallet from unwanted RFID scanning equipment.

The shoulder strap is constructed from nylon material similar to a seat belt so it will fit comfortably over your clothing.

Available in black and brown, the bag can be purchased now from Apple’s site for $299.95.

A beautiful wallet

Hex Icon Wallet Case for the iPhone 6s/6 Plus, $59.95


Along with being able to hold up to five different credit cards and cash, the Hex Icon Wallet Case for the larger iPhone model allows access to all ports and buttons, including the camera. The phone is placed in a reinforced bed for protection. When closed, the cover is held on by an elastic closure.

You can purchase the case now for $59.95. Buyers can select from a number of different color options including copper, black croc leather, dark brown, khaki, and others.
