For all of those Apple Fanboys and Fangirls out there – now is the time to purchase iPhone stocking stuffers and Apple gifts from the Crowdfund “Santa” to satisfy every Apple geek’s need for gadgets.  I know because I qualify.  If you are anything like me, my house (and car) are scattered with chargers, blue tooth speakers, cords etc.  I am always on the look out for something cool – and perhaps not totally necessary – to add to my collection.  So yeah I know.  Many of these products won’t make it under this years Christmas tree since they will need to be funded to be produced.  But look at it this way.  You can help a budding entrepreneur crowdfund his business and satisfy that gadget fix in one fell swoop.  Put it in an envelope and wait in anticipation…

So today since the iPhone is the coolest phone out there let’s start with some hot gifts for the Apple lover in y0ur life:

WakaWaka Power: The Best Compact Solar Power Station and Light

GILD Design:  Solid Bumper for iPhone 5

I wish I could carry my iPhone without a bumper.  I really don’t like to hide the clean lines and great design.  But like most people the phone gets dropped .. daily.  Truth be told I have been through more iPhone covers than actual phones. While many do protect from less than graceful moments it is still a shame to hide the clean look of metal and glass.  Finally here is a bumper that earns it guardian role with the iPhone.  Sure there are other metal bumpers that look pretty cool.  But read the specs on this one:

GILD Design Solid Bumper for iPhone 5The drop test was performed in accordance with MIL-STD-810G which is an United States Military Standard. It requires continuous drop onto each face, edge and corner for a total of 26 drops from a height of 1.2 Meter.

In order to make lighter and stronger iPhone5 solid bumper, it is CNC machined from solid billet of aircraft grade aluminum alloy which is called duralumin A2017S (produced by HURUKAWA-DENKOU) and finished by hard anodize.
