This is one of those selfish posts - I need an iPhone stand so I can prop my phone up on my desk while I work. I want it to function as a third screen (it will accompany my MacBook and Dell monitor). The idea is to have my Instagram feed running on the phone so I can check it at a glance rather than fish into my phone every time I need a pic fix. But it's not completely selfish. I also think these little gems would make great stocking stuffers - so it's win-win, really. iStand in black rubber Los Angeles based Poketo sell this lovely simple design in their online store. They also come in pink or white. $8
