U.S. Cellular Holiday Gift Guide

Did you know photo apps, such as Instagram and Vine, create Better Moments during the holidays and check out U.S. Cellular's Affordable Holiday Gift Guide

      • Capturing special and memorable holiday moments is easy with Instagram and Vine apps that can be downloaded on your U.S. Cellular smartphone / tablet.
      • Mobile devices help us communicate more frequently, share experiences immediately, and generally enrich the quality of our relationships. Whether at home or on-the-go, U.S. Cellular is providing the tools needed to help consumers create, discover, enhance and share life’s Better Moments with their families.
      • You can use Instagram and Vine to capture holiday memories and share them with family and friends by some of the following ways to enjoy Better Moments with friends and family.
        • Share holiday recipes. Let your friends and family watch you make your favorite holiday meals or desserts. Recipes on Vine and Instagram often show preparation or presentation tutorials. You can take your followers through step-by-step directions so they can try it on their own.   Help older relatives share family recipes that can be passed down to future generations.
        • Send holiday messages. Calling your loved ones is always important, but it might be fun to send personalized Vine or Instagram videos you can send and tag them in. With access to U.S. Cellular’s high-speed nationwide network, you can upload and share your greetings quickly, even if you’re away on a holiday vacation, your family can feel closer together and share in your excitement.
        • Show off holiday lights. Bring the photos of holiday lights strung around your home or neighborhood to life by making a video of them. You could start a time lapse video of you putting them in place or showcase any special effects.
        • Follow hashtags for promotions.  There are a number of brands that utilize Vine and Instagram to promote their products or specials, especially around the holidays. Search for their verified accounts and see what they have to offer.  This is one thing I like to do.  Enter sweeps using these apps are so easy and following hashtags is one way to enter easily.

        • Gift Under $25 – Accessories are essential for your smartphone or tablet. A case, shell, skin or travel charger makes a great stocking stuffer. I know someone in my family that might like the Shell/Holster Combo or the Skullcandy headset.
        • Gift Under $50 – Jam Classic Bluetooth speakers would make a great gift for a family member.
        • Gift under $100 – For your favorite fitness buff, check out the SYNC BURN activity and calorie burn tracker.
        • iPhone 5s or 5c – the new iPhone is one of the hottest tech gifts this shopping season. U.S. Cellular offers iPhone 5s, the most forward-thinking smartphone in the world, and iPhone 5c the most colorful iPhone yet. Use your iPhone to connect with family and friends this holiday season by taking photos with the advanced iSight camera system and video chatting via and FaceTime.
        • Check out the iPad Air at U.S.

    With my Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 which I use as a blogger, one of the gifts would like to get is a protective cover, like the D30 Impact Portfolio Case.
