From the first smartphone I owned, I’ve always been an Android user. Much to the chagrin of nearly all my friends and peers, I really do like the operating system and my Samsung phone. However, I do have to admit the world of tech accessories is made for iPhone users and the number and variety of options are tipped in their favor. 

If you have an Android phone user in your life who you generally regard with suspicion and is already causing you a lot of stress in the gift-hunting search, fear not — and just be glad they don’t have a Windows phone. We’re here to help you find some cool Android accessories they’ll appreciate. Some are specially optimized for Android devices, while others are just great accessory gifts for all types of phones. 

These 20 phone accessories and compatible gadgets prove gifting an Android user isn’t actually as difficult as you think.
