Christmas Gift Guide 2015: 12 gift ideas for Android fans

We've hunted down a haul of the best kit for any self-proclaimed lover of all things Android

There are well over a billion Android users on the planet right now, but decent accessories for them remain harder to find than brain cells at a Donald Trump convention.  

That doesn't mean there aren't any good ones of course - you just have to search harder than you do for iAccessories. And that's exactly what we've done for you.

From cracking chargers to gaming get-ups, we've pulled together everything to make fans of that little green 'bot jump for joy.

Homido VR headset (£55)

Best Christmas gifts ideas for Android fans

Sure, Google’s Cardboard contraption is pretty cool, but for a proper virtual reality romp you need something much more formidable.

Enter Homido: the stereoscopic, 360-degree head-tracking helmet that turns modern mobiles into movie magicians. Fully-adjustable for different eyesights and face shapes, the completely wireless headset can also be used to enter a world of immersive 3D gaming.

Compatible with both Android and iOS, slip in your S6 and strap it on to Granddad to give him the virtual time of his life.

Harman Kardon Esquire mini (£120)

Best Christmas gifts ideas for Android fans

This slab of polished metal might look like a stylish cigar case, but it's actually a portable Bluetooth speaker.

Despite its size, it’ll blast out your bangers at surprisingly loud volumes without sounding distorted or tinny, and it feels as solid in the hands as its price tag would suggest. Its rear kickstand props it up nicely for directed sound, too, while it cleverly doubles up as a portable charger - letting you top up your trusty Android devices via an in-built USB port.

A microphone will even transform it into a conference call speaker at the press of a button, so you can switch from Iron Maiden to Ted in accounting with a single touch.

LG Rolly Keyboard (£70)

Best Christmas gifts ideas for Android fans

Fat-fingered key-tappers fear not: abandon the bulk of your keyboard case, banish embarassing train typos and embrace the brilliance of this full physical keyboard that rolls up smaller than a Bavarian sausage.

Constructed from sturdy polycarbonate and with a pitch almost identical to most laptop keysets, this bluetooth finger-clicker is an on-the-go accessory without compromise. How digit-drummingly brilliant.

Ogio Renegade RSS Backpack (£85)

Best Christmas gifts ideas for Android fans

Portable speaker, laptop, Android tablet - your pockets can't fit them all. Thankfully, this back-hugger packs in dedicated soft-lined laptop and tablet compartments, the latter of which is large enough to lovingly cradle your trusty 12in Android tablet. Because we all know 9.7in fruit tablets are for casuals.
