Perhaps one of the only bummers about being an early adopter to a new iPhone is the near total lack of great cases that will fit a brand new model on the day it debuts. That happens for a reason. Apple is loath to give out its measurements and specifications on a redesign to too many people before the new phone debuts; the more people you tell, the more likely that one of them will spoil the surprise. (Which usually gets spoiled anyway, but you get the idea.)

Now that the iPhone 6 and 6+ have been out for a few months, truly attractive cases have started to pop up from both designer brands and stylish tech companies alike. The timing is perfect, of course; not only has the phone built up a sizable market of existing users (I notice more and more of them on the subway literally every day), but thousands of people are likely to find them wrapped up for the holidays.

If you’re one of those lucky people who already has the phone, you expect to be receiving one soon or you’re looking to buy a gift for someone who dearly loves his or her new gadget, check out our picks for some of the most beautiful cases below.

Also, a note on sizing: Most designer brands seem to only be making cases for the 6 now, but the tech companies that we’ve spotlighted below make most, if not all, of the designs we’ve chosen for both the 6 and 6+.

love the rottie ! Amanda, you said the bag is meant to frighten young children, do you suppose the phone case could frighten mean male colleagues?

Hi Amanda, random question for you. I am seeing a lot of people with Valentino iPhone 5 cases here in Toronto. Just wondering if you have any information if Valentino will be doing any cases for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6+ ? I’ve looked all over the internet and I couldn’t find anything.

I’m sure Valentino will be, but my searches turned up the same as yours–only 5 cases so far. Most of the very high-end brands are still lagging a bit behind; the premium designer cases in this post are mostly pre-orders for cases that aren’t quite available in stores yet. I’m sure Valentino will be along with some in a month or two!
