If you want to gift someone who is an overt Android fan, consider the following gift ideas.
Play Store Gift cards

Google Play gift cards can be redeemed and used for in-app purchases and other purchases in the Play Store instantly and most importantly gives the person the freedom to spend it on what they want.
Android Mascot Plush Toys, Pen Drives and Goodies
Any hardcore Android fan can’t have enough of the iconic little green bot. There are functional gifts like, pen drives, speakers, and keychains that can be useful and there are plush toys, and action figures that can decorate desks and showcases.
T-shirts and other printed Merchandise
T-shirts are worn by almost everyone and they are always in trend. Nowadays, t-shirts are used to express opinions and personality. There are a lot of online stores that are selling t-shirts printed with the Android mascot. Not just t-shirts, one could find mugs, posters and all sorts of printed merchandise with the Android mascot.
Believe it or not, there are more games on Google Play Store than Steam, XBOX, PlayStation, and Wii all combined. We have to admit that mobile gaming is not as mature as PC or console gaming. However, it can’t be ignored. There are a lot of casual games on Android and one of the main downsides of gaming on an Android device is the fact that controls are right on the display. Sometimes it could be annoying as the digits could block the display and sometimes hard to know if an action/click/touch is registered or not. The solution to these issues is to use a controller and restore the enjoyment of gaming the good-ol way. There are controllers available for Android devices from as cheap as 300 RS to several thousand Bucks.
Mobile technology has come a long way. If one thinks about it, it’s mind boggling to conceive the fact that, mobile phones these days are as powerful as computers. With a lot of power comes a lot of power usage. Although there are a lot of phones with high battery capacity, for someone who is always connected to the internet and playing games no power backup is enough. Gift a power bank that could save the day and keep any unwanted switch offs at bay.
