Gadget lovers are some of the most difficult people to shop for. They either already have what they want, or what they want is insanely expensive. As a gadget lover myself, please allow me to point you towards four websites which are full of affordable stocking stuffers for any Apple affectionado.

TwelveSouth. Praised for having the same level of design appreciation as Apple itself, TwelveSouth offers iPad, iPhone, and Mac accessories that leave you wondering how you ever survived without them. My favorite is the BookBook for iPad. Shop TwelveSouth.

Studio Neat. Ever want to mount your iPhone to a tripod? Are you searching for the perfect iPad stylus? Thankfully, Studio Neat gives you solutions to both problems. Shop Studio Neat.

Just Mobile. Another minimal accessory maker with pristine design taste, this shop specializes in stands and organizers for the professional. Shop Just Mobile.

BlueLounge. The eyesore of gadgetry is cable management. Nobody likes seeing the flow of black and white cables from the back of your desk. Enter BlueLounge, providers of elegant organizers and cable hiders. Shop BlueLounge.
