Here are a few more gift ideas for this year’s graduates.

From a very thin and light phone grip to a very comfy desk chair, there’s bound to be a gift idea your grad will love. I’ve included list prices. You may find these items cheaper if they are on sale.

ohsnap! Snap 4 Luxe ($39.99,

I have to admit, I am late to the phone grip party.

I’ve seen tons of people using pop-out handles and grips on the backs of their phones to help them hold on with one hand.

Those seem nice enough, but I slip my phone in and out of my back jeans pocket dozens of times per day and they look like they’d get in the way.


When I was asked to try out the Snap 4 Luxe from ohsnap!, the first thing I noticed was its low profile. It is just 2.5 millimeters thin, and it’s not any taller than the camera bump on my iPhone.

Another reason I stayed away from grips on the back of my phone is because I use a MagSafe charger to wireless charge. The Snap 4 Luxe is compatible with all MagSafe chargers.

The Snap 4 Luxe has a nano-adhesive to keep it connected to your phone or case. I stuck mine to my Apple leather case and it is easy to extend and use and it snaps open or closed with almost no effort. There are tiny magnets to keep it closed. You can remove it (with great effort) and run it under some water to reactivate the adhesive when you want to use it again.

The grip also functions as a kickstand, so you can prop up your phone to watch videos hands-free.
