6. Tech2 Samsung Galaxy S3 Impact Band case
Does your Android-crazed friend value their smartphone with their life? If so, a Tech 21 case could be the perfect gift this Christmas.

Tech21, which also makes indestructable Iphone and Ipad cases, has brought its D30 technology to a Samsung Galaxy S3 case. This rugged Orange goo, which appeared earlier this year on the Jonathan Ross show, comes baked into the smartphone case, which means your friend's beloved S3 should be able to withstand some drops and tumbles.

Has your friend got tiny hands? Tech21 have also started doing cases for the pint-sized Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini. Quite the opposite? Samsung Galaxy Note cases are also available. 

Tech21's Samsung Galaxy S3 Impact Band case is available to buy for £24.99.

5. An Android t-shirt
If your friend is a true Android geek, they're bound to appreciate an t-shirt with an Android robot emblazoned on the front.  

A quick search on Google Shopping will bring up thousands of different Android t-shirts, although our favourite has to be this one, which pictures an Android robot eating an Apple. Har har. This will no doubt be the top pick amongst Android fans too, as we all know how they like to make their wars with Apple public. 

It looks like Android t-shirts are available to buy pretty much everywhere, ranging from around £9 to £18

4. Philips Android docking speaker
Nowadays, store shelves are filled to the brim with Iphone and Ipad docking speakers, but what about poor Android fans? That's where Philips comes in.

Philips is one of the first firms to launch a docking station designed specifically for Android phones, an item which would make a fantastic gift for a fan of the open-source operating system. 

There's no need to worry about whether it'll fit your friend's phone, either. The unique 'flexidock' means the connection will work with most Android smartphones, be it a Google Nexus 4 or a Samsung Galaxy S3. Even if it doesn't fit you've got no reason to worry, as music can also be played through the speaker wirelessly via Bluetooth. Christmas sorted.

Philips Android docking speaker is available to buy for £170.
