A phone is a phone is a phone—said no one, ever. While many of us have love/hate relationships with our phones (we’re perpetually preparing to break up with them and are simultaneously fully dependent on them), it’s an undisputed fact: it’s hard—re: impossible—to function in our world today without them.

And if we’re going to give in, we might as well indulge in a few cute phone accessories, right?

In an era of inflation, I want to ensure that my buys are design-driven and help streamline my everyday rituals and routines. Enter: cute phone accessories that make charging, handling, and listening to your favorite podcasts all the easier and more enjoyable.
