Do note that unlike the other gifts in this roundup, compatibility depends on the iPhone model. MagSafe accessories only work with iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro, iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro models.

But if they have a compatible phone it makes for a pretty great gift because either your giftee is already using it (and more MagSafe gear is welcome) or they’re unfamiliar with MagSafe (and will be blown away by how cool it is).
