Rubik’s Cube Phone Cases
There is a phone case for the iPhone 5 available on the Rubik’s website, but there are many more types of case for any phone available online. If you can’t find a case for your specific phone, there are also phone socks available.
When it comes to actual puzzles, most speedcubers can be very picky about which brand or type of puzzle they want. With this gift, you don’t need to spoil the surprise, and the puzzler can choose his own cube(s) and accessories to avoid confusion. A site I would recommend is TheCubicle.us, however there are many more cubing webshops available that probably offer gift cards as well.
