Whether you're planning some outdoor time or planning for a quirky holiday gift, these tech and gaming-inspired flasks are sure to add a fun touch to the occasion.
It may seem like the holidays are in a galaxy far, far away, but they aren't as distant as you'd imagine — especially if you're planning on personalizing gifts. Monogrammed items can take weeks (or even months) to ship, so it's a good idea to start placing your orders sooner rather than later. Be a gift-giving overachiever this holiday season, and monogram these timeless tech accessories for every gadget geek on your shopping list.
When tech gear meets Fall, magic ensues. Case in point: cases, sleeves, and headphones (yes, headphones!) in true Pendleton style. Thanks to the warn wool material and rich design of the legendary outdoorsy brand, there's no better trend to, er, fall for this season. Shop our favorite picks now!
- The brown and red tones of this ereader case ($68) are seasonal perfection.
- We bet you'll be the only one at the office rocking these cool, eclectic headphones ($80).
- Your phone will stay snuggled and protected when you use this colorful iPhone sleeve ($15).
- This woven etablet cover ($68) is the perfect accessory for when you cozy up to read by the fire.
- Don't forget about your laptop! This purple wool case ($55) will spruce up your 13-inch Macbook Air.
We don't tend to spend big on phone accessories, but sometimes you come across a splurge-worthy one that someone, anyone just has to have. So while you may not dish out the cash for yourself, stunning pricier-than-normal phone cases make the perfect gift for a loved one. While you're off adding them to your shopping cart, don't forget to sneak one onto your wish list — hopefully mom or dad will see!
From top left:
- Channel Alexander McQueen’s fabulous knuckle clutch with an iPhone 5 case ($162) that's all kinds of fancy.
- This isn't just any ol' leather case. The exotic iguana print gives this iPhone 5 cover ($160) a major reason to stand out.
- The price of this stunning iPhone 5 case ($150) won't seem so bad when you consider it was handcrafted of natural gemstone.
- Why yes, this gold iPhone 5 case costs $10,000, but it's individually made to order from 14-carat gold and personally engraved. A girl can dream, can't she?
- A Swarovski Crystals iPhone 4s cover ($336) takes bling to the max and was made for the extravagant lady in your life.
- A textured leather iPhone cover ($330) will cost some pretty pennies but last a long, long time.
They say good things come in threes, and these new Lomography lenses are proof. The experimental kit is made especially for micro 4/3 digital cameras — and for the creative type of shooter.
You get three options: a fisheye lens for 160-degree snaps, a standard 24 mm lens, and a wide-angle 12 mm lens. Throw in experimental effects like color filters and multiple exposure (the lenses let you open and close the shutter multiple times on the same frame), and you've got a package that's sure to be a game changer.
Keep 'em for yourself or buy them as a gift for the holidays — either way, you won't go wrong.
