10. Belkin’s LEGO Builder
Belkin’s LEGO Builder case transforms your iPhone 5S into the base for building and reliving your childhood. The back panel of the case is a plastic LEGO base plate, or a blank canvas if you will, which lets you attach standard LEGO bricks, to unleash your creativity. The case is also designed to protect the buttons on the side of your iPhone, as well as the screen with a wraparound frame. The case comes in two-tone colours, black and blue, purple and blue, and yellow and blue. You can purchase it from Belkin’s UK website for £24.99.
9. Miniot iWood 5s
The Miniot iWood 5s case is an elegant design, with the phone’s buttons carved out of wood making it both safe from damage and all functions accessible. The cases are made from the finest wood in well-managed forests, with all products designed in Schagen, the Netherlands. The sleek wood design doesn’t add bulk to your phone, but keeps it slim and streamlined. The cases can be personalised with engraved messages, art or logos and are available in 7 different wooden tones. Prices start at $106, with engraved images or messages starting at $15.
Pop! cases for iPhone 5S are both handy and protective, with a slim shape and in a range of bright colours. A built-in stand lets you sit your phone both portrait and landscape, perfect for hands-free FaceTime or viewing of films. The textured finish of the cases gives them a secure grip and a dual-layered protection from any bumps or scrapes.
The STASHBACK credit card case by Incipio is designed to hold up to 3 credit cards or IDs. It features a flip-open design that gives easy access to your hidden cards. A great case for those wanting to travel light and leave their wallet at home. The case also features an impact resistant core, which makes for excellent shock absorption, keeping your iPhone safe from screen-shattering drops.
6. Grove WoodPrint
The Grove WoodPrint case is one of the prettiest on the market, with each case made out of maple wood and can be customised online using your own photos or the website’s colour patterns. The website even allows you to connect to your Instagram to choose one of your own photos. The dreamy example cases of woodland backgrounds and river views are enough to inspire anyone to decorate their case with the most beautiful picture they’ve taken on Instagram. The personalisation of the case makes this a perfect gift.
