As mobile devices continue to play a key role in our daily lives, accessories have become an important extension of phones and tablets and can be great holiday gifts for anyone on your list. According to a recent U.S. Cellular survey, 36 percent of smartphone users download or play music on their phones daily, 29 percent use smart home technology and 34 percent use their phone to help monitor their health. For passions ranging from fitness to music and everything in between, wireless accessories can be a great gift for loved ones looking to enhance their favorite activities.

Regardless of how your loved one uses their mobile device, an accessory that suits their interests can make a perfect gift. There are so many cutting-edge accessories available, and when you pair them with a smartphone such as the iPhone 6s on a high-quality 4G LTE network, it is sure to be an exciting and fun holiday season.

U.S. Cellular suggests the following accessories for friends and family on your list:

OtterBox Commuter Case ($39.99): With defense against drops, dust and scratches, along with two layers of protection, the OtterBox Commuter case is sleek enough to easily fit in your pocket while also protecting against the elements, perfect for everyday use or for the adventurer in your life.

Belkin WeMo Insight Switch ($59.99): For the person on your list looking to simplify their life, the Insight Switch connects your home electronics to your Wi-Fi network, allowing you to turn them on and off from anywhere using your phone or tablet. It can also put your home electronics on a schedule as well as monitor your energy usage and send information to your phone or tablet.

Parrot Rolling Spider Drone ($99.99): For the fun-loving adult or child on your list, the Parrot Rolling Spider is an ultra-compact drone controlled by your smartphone. It flies indoors and outdoors with speed and stability, and you can take photos with its vertical camera simply by hitting the 'photo' icon in the accompanying app on your smartphone screen. Its detachable wheels make it easy to roll from the floor to the ceiling.

Samsung Level On Headphones ($169.99): Designed to maximize listening comfort, these headphones are great for long flights or an evening of music. The ultra-soft ear cushions and padded headband provide great comfort and make the Level On Headphones perfect for the music lover on your list.
