Great gifts for the iPhone 4

You've made a great decision to buy an iPhone 4. It has become the love of your life, and now you want to buy it gifts. What should you buy? Here are the things that I bought - and love.

1. Grantwood FM transmitter with integrated car charger.

If you have a car, this is one of the best gifts you can buy for your iPhone 4: The awesome iPhone 4 compatible Grantwood FM transmitter that has a built-in car charger. So you can listen to Pandora and listen to GPS directions all through your car's FM stereo... and keep it charged while you're at it. And it works exclusively through the dock connector, so there is no fooling around with extra cables or fiddling with the volume control. It works great for me, and is a solid bargain. I know - I bought one and I love it. I use it almost every time I drive.

2. Spare Charger and cable.

Spare aftermarket chargers are standards-based and inexpensive. And so I keep a spare charger at work so I can always plug in. And I keep one in my travel bag. And I bought a few spare iPhone USB cables too... for computer syncing, or in case I lose or damage one.

3. Top-Notch Bluetooth headset: The BlueAnt T.

I bought a BlueAnt T1 about two days after it was released. I loved (and lost) my BlueAnt Z9i; the T1 is even MORE awesome. Not only is the T1 great for talking on the phone, you can also pump music or podcasts through it.

And the noise cancellation is perfect for me ... I know. I own a convertible car. The only problem with these bluetooth headsets is that they're way too easy to misplace. I wish they had a homing beacon on them.

4. A case, of course, but for the style.

Everyone already owns an iPhone 4 case, right? They can provide excellent iPhone protection. Well, friends, one case isn't enough, because they're cheap enough that you can also buy them for style alone!

iPhone 4 cases are so cheap at Amazon, there isn't really a reason not to buy several. They can show others who you are - from the whimsical to the political, or even the bizarre. And they are so inexpensive that you can buy two (or maybe even five) at the same price as one at a retail store.

Anything else?
And that's my list! Any other ideas? Feel free to comment!
