If the last thing you do before going to bed and the first thing you do when you wake up is start scrolling through your Instagram feed, then you might be an Insta addict. #nojudgement
We love Instagram, too and want to make sure you find the perfect birthday or even holiday gift for all the Insta-obsessed people in your life — even if that person is you.
Daily Instagram Calendar

This is the ultimate gift for the Instagram addict as you can print a different picture for each day of your 365-day tear-away calendar. In a leap year, you can actually print THREE HUNDRED AND SIXTY SIX pictures. If you don’t have that many photos to pull from, you can also choose to start duplicating photos at different points in the calendar.
Buy It: Social Print Studio Calendar, $40
Perfect Lighting iPhone Case

This gift will change the life of anyone who is a chronic #selfie taker. For those of us who indulge in an occasional selfie, we know that the flash on a typical cell phone camera is horrible. This light-up phone case allows you to cast the perfect glow in any low-light situation that might normally require a flash. The one downside to this case is that it does not have a bumper to protect your screen, so you may want to add some additional screen protection if you want to be safe.
Buy It: Light iPhone Case, $54.95
Cell Phone Lenses

These special cell phone lenses will help you take your cell phone photography to a whole new level. This package includes all the lenses available: fisheye, super fisheye, telephoto, wide angle, macro and polarizing lenses. These lenses can be easily attached to your phone and work with any smart device (basically anything that has a camera). If you don't want to spring for all of the lenses, you can buy them each for $20.
Buy It: Magnetic Phone Lenses, $99 (for all)
Kim K's Selfie Book
The selfie queen herself, Kim Kardashian, put out a picture book earlier this year that includes tons of the celeb’s selfie photos from over the years. She was taking selfies before we even knew what the word meant.
Buy It: Kim Kardashian Selfish, $13

For fans of the old vintage, Polaroid-type look, this Instax printer is the perfect choice. Similar to the popular Instax camera, the printer allows you to print any photos on your phone wirelessly. The printer uses the same film that the camera uses, so everything comes out with a fun, retro feel. This is also an amazing present for anyone who crafts or scrapbooks.
Buy It: Fujifilm Instax Printer, $189
iPhone USB Bracelet

If you’re taking selfies all the time, chances are you’re using up your cell phone battery all the time. This chic Rebecca Minkoff bracelet looks normal to the world, but it’s actually a cell phone charger. You can wear this bracelet every day and know that you will never run out of cell phone juice again.
Buy It: Rebecca Minkoff Lightning Cable Bracelet, $60
Custom Laptop Sleeve

I’ve seen lots of different Instagram decals for laptops and iPads, but this is an actual soft-sided laptop sleeve to use for when you travel and are on the go. If a laptop case is not up your alley, the site also offers other unique choices such as hard-backed iPhone cases, magnetic iPad covers and other fun Insta-tech items.

If you live somewhere with cold weather, you know the frustration of having to take off your gloves in order to use your cell phone. Techno Touch gloves ensure you never have to have cold hands again as they work with all of your smart devices. And these, unlike many others I’ve seen, are super stylish.
Buy It: Echo Touch Leather Glitten, $88
Marble Photo Background

For Insta addicts, taking flat lay pics might be a part of their everyday routine. A cool background texture is the key to good flat lays, and marble is a super popular choice for Instagram superstars. This pastry board would be an awesome tool for anyone who takes these often.
Buy It: Marble Pastry Board, $40
