Gift ideas – what other users are searching for?
Gifts for Amazon Fire owners
1. A charging station
Instead of buying an extra power adapter for each device, think of the needs of a family as a whole. One charging station can fix the hunger for energy once and for all.
A charging station is the desk accessory and home decor that is used to charge multiple devices at once, from smartphones to Kindles, to Fires, cameras or power banks.
Pick up one such station and the rest of family members will be thankful!
2. An Alexa-enabled smart plug
A smart plug is a smart home accessory that will let you control with your voice almost any appliance, from a bedside lamp to an electric kettle, to a humidifier, to Christmas tree lights – even if you are not at home.
To make a coffee maker ready for your voice, just put the plug into the power outlet, and then the coffee maker’s plug into it.
Then, open Alexa app on your Amazon Fire tablet, and set up a simple routine. Ready! Say: “Alexa, make me a coffee” and see the miracle happen!
3. A custom case cover
Original Amazon Fire covers are offered in a few colors. It’s enough to distinguish the tablets in the four-person family. On the other side, they are usually twice as expensive as their alternatives.
However, if you are looking for more creative ways to personalize the Fire, make sure to explore cases from third-party producers. They come in dozens of bright, colorful designs and patterns that will match the personality and style of each member of your family.
If you want to find a unique Amazon Fire case, search the entire Amazon store, not only a section with dedicated Fire cases and accessories. Make sure you know which Fire model and generation the gift recipient owns.
4. Bathtub table and reading stand
What do lovers of print and electronic books have in common? They most probably love to read in a bathtub.
this most relaxing time of the day can be even better if one takes to the bathroom some more things than just the waterproof Kobo e-reader.
Multifunctional bathtub tables are getting more and more popular. They can hold an e-reader or a print book, a cup of tee or a glass of wine, a snack, and a few tealight candles.
Most bathtub tables and tablet holders are expandable, so they will fit most tubs.
4. A microSD card
One of the most powerful features of Amazon Fire tablets is a microSD card slot. Thanks to that, you can keep on your tablet for offline use multiple movies, games, or audiobooks.
Memory cards are not cheap but once you get one, it will be useful for more than a lifetime of one generation of Amazon Fire tablet.

Many modern-day bedside lamps offer adjustable brightness or an ability to control the warmth of the light. And some of them look like from the future.
The widest choice of innovative bedside lamps can be found on Amazon. For best results don’t explore only “Electronics” category, but make sure to browse “Home & Kitchen” and “Appliances” as well.
