Don't just buy a selfie stick. They're obnoxious and cumbersome, and you're better than that. Instead, get the kid whose fingers constantly swipe and tap across a small touchscreen something that will open up an entire world of selfie-taking, Facebooking, Instagramming and Tweeting possibilities no matter where they are.
Help that phone-loving teen keep his or her hands warm with a pair of winter gloves that don't interfere with a touchscreen. $30 • Sport Town • 511 W. Main
That annoying little box: "Low Battery: 20% of Battery Remaining." It's the bane of any selfie snapper's existence. Free them from standard battery life with a portable phone charger. No outlet or vehicle required. Try the ZOHM TECH PWRstick that works with iPhones and Androids. $16 • Wollnick's General Store • 421 W. Main
