It’s that time of year again! To launch our Gift Guides 2010 series, we thought we’d start small, with the type of accessories that almost everyone needs but people sometimes forget when looking for fashionable presents: Tech Toys. We have cute cases for every gadget in your collection, plus a couple other things that might come in handy (or just look really cool).

I am not going to try to fool anyone by pretending like I don’t love the iPad. Prior to its launch, I was vehemently opposed to purchasing one, despite having been a loyal Apple customer over the years. Once I got to play with it shortly after it came out, I was sold. I use it daily for browsing, email and an occasional game of Angry Birds.
Oscar de la Renta continues to prove he is not only ahead of the curve but also completely able to relate to all of us who spend our days glued to gadgets.
Today we have the exclusive preview of the second batch of Oscar de la Renta iPad Clutches. The first iPad cases (which Oscar endearingly calls a clutch) were spotted on the runway of the Resort 2011 show.
For the fashionable student who has everything (Or maybe the intrepid fashion blogger on the go. HINT HINT.), we present the Alexander McQueen Skull Print Laptop Case, available exclusively via Net-a-Porter.
Emblazoned with the same skull motif as McQueen’s iconic scarves, this canvas and leather case will keep your laptop safe inside your school or work bag and look chic while doing it.
Not long after the annual summer release of a new iPhone comes an inevitable parade of ways to personalize and protect your new gadget. Those options range from rubber cases that can be had for $19.99 at your local Best Buy to Louis Vuitton monogram sheaths that cost more than the phone itself (with a two-year contract, of course), and the prospect of choosing one can be quite the task indeed for style-conscious gadget-lovers.
I know, not much happening here in the Tech Cases department for quite some time. That is partially due to Megs having way too many fashionable bags to blog about all the time.
Fortunately for us, allison pointed me to the stylish iSkin tokidoki Vibes for iPods. These covers both protect your ‘Pods and add personality to your dime-a-dozen media player as well.
As I finally made my way across the big pond, back to the good ol’ US of A, it seemed like I completed the transition without further complication. Can’t say the same thing about my trusted iPod Shuffle, which didn’t survive the flight. Rest In Piece, my loyal accomplice. Reason for the sudden death may have been the long flight from Europe to the US, the fact that I didn’t have a protective cover for it, or maybe just my lack of luck.
While people don’t talk about iPods as much anymore, most of them still have at least one. I have 2 different iPods. The shuffle which is great for working out (ehhh who does that?!) and the new video iPod (which I have yet to set up from Christmas). Either way, many of us iPod owners love an iPod case. For a fun pattern with lots of color and attitude, the Paul Smith Swirl Mini MP3 Case adds a boost of light and fun to your precious music maker.
When looking for a laptop bag for the daily use, you run into the problem that the bag itself may be just too heavy. Add the laptop and you may easily carry 10+ lbs around with you. If you’re a commuter, you don’t want to arrive at your workplace with a sore arm. The Baggallini Commuter Bag only weighs in at 2.1lbs and is professional, yet fun.
