iPhones and security blankets

Anthropology filter: looking for books, essays, and articles on the anthropology of things. Basically, why do we assign emotional value to physical objects, like security blankets and iPhones. I'm not really interested in religious relics and fetishes, but rather a more cultural anthropology explanation.
I'd prefer scholarly articles/books, but will take a good popular book.
