You’re a Mean One Mr. Grinch

by Katie on December 11, 2014


Our Charlie has one true love right now and it is Mr. Grinch. He reads the books, watches the movie and the TV episode, wears a sweater with the Grinch’s face on it, and even got a chance to “meet” his favorite guy in person.  I always want to remember just how sweet Christmas is this year with our Grinch loving boy.

With Christmas just around the corner you might still have some people on your list who you need to shop for. If they are anything like the people left on my list, they are the hardest people to shop for! With the help of US Cellular shopping for that hard to buy for person just became a little easier!  As over half of adults have a smartphone, giving the gift of helpful accessories for the gamer or the music lover in your life is an easy way to make holiday wishes come true.

Here are some great gift ideas for the special people in your life:


  • Beats Solo HD 2 Headphones: Lightweight and compact, these colorful headphones are durable and comfortable. Updated and improved acoustics let you hear all your tunes with clarity and resonant bass. Go solo with confidence and bring your music with you anywhere.
  • JBL Flip 2: This wireless, rechargeable battery powered speaker brings rich sound to any on-the-go lifestyle. Small enough to fit in your hand, the JBL Flip 2 features SoundClear echo and noise cancellation technology, so you can use it as a hands-free speakerphone.


  • iGrill: Android and iOS users can modernize the primal experience of grilling with the iGrill family of apps. Bluetooth Smart Technology allows users to monitor their grillables with the compact iGrill Mini, original iGrill, or the 4-probe capacity iGrill.  Easy to read displays and customizable alarms mean your steak is cooked perfectly every time.
  • Olloclip 4-in-1 Lens System ($0.00): This much-acclaimed lens system attaches to your iPhone or iPad to provide superior optics and clearer images. The system includes two macro lenses (5x and 10x), a fisheye, and a wide-angle lens. The four-in-one design means changing between lenses is quick and easy.


  • Moga Pro Power: Gamers attach their Android smartphone, like the Samsung Galaxy S5, to this handheld game console and use its precision controls to play games. The display is on the smartphone. The Mogas buttons, triggers and joysticks are highly responsive and maneuvers much better than a smartphone’s touchscreen controls.  iPhone users won’t be left out of the game anymore with theMoga Ace. And both units charge your smart phone as you play.
  • Moto TC Rally App & Car: Working with the Griffin TC MOTO Rally Car, this app lets you race alone or compete against an opponent. Drive by using your mobile device’s touchscreen steering wheel, or by titling the device itself. The Rally Car is a USB-rechargeable device with impact/obstacle sensors that let players interact with their environment with unparalleled realism.

As always Let U.S. Cellular make it easier by using the Parent/Child Cell Phone Agreement to set some ground rules.
