Can’t figure out what to get the iPhone enthusiast on your list? Why not look for a one-of-a-kind iPhone case? There are lots of generic cases on the market, some fairly ugly ones that can be found at mall kiosks, and some that are simply too expensive to consider. On the flip side, there are plenty of iPhone cases that are original and worth that extra dime or two.
There are a couple of things to consider when shopping for an iPhone case. First, make sure the case that you purchase is durable – if your friend or loved one drops that iPhone, you don’t want the case you’ve purchased to crack or break. Second, make sure that you find a case that fits – iPhone 4 and 4S cases are not the same shape. Lastly, look for a case that really stands out. Below, you’ll find some cases that fit that last rule perfectly.
Speck’s Burton Case
Know a snowboarder with an iPhone? Nothing says “snowboarding” like the beloved Vermont-based company Burton. Burton has been around for a long time now, and this company creates everything from snowboards to awesome winter jackets. Speck makes the FabShell Burton for iPhone 4S cases.
These cases come in a number of uber-cool colors and patterns (in true snowboard style), and they will cost you around $40 each. Expensive? A tad. Super cool? No doubt. You can’t go wrong with Burton if you know someone who can’t get enough of that snow.
Some of us are just more accident prone than others. For those of us who can’t help but drop our iPhones every now and then, there’s the Speck ToughSkin case series. These cases are actually two cases in one, they look every bit the tough part, and they will protect any iPhone 4 or 4S from any serious damage.
