With Father’s Day coming up June 16, we’re already looking for some of the coolest tech gifts for dad. Since I’ve always had a heart for handmade, I’m loving the idea of bringing both sensibilities together with these great-looking leather cases.
The leather iPad cases from Steven Ou of Etsy’s Homemade Leather are definitely worth a look, especially considering a basic iPad portfolio starts at just $63. You can order any one of about a dozen colors, and each has a notebook folder, card slots, and a smart pen loop which helps keep the case closed–or propped open, as the case may be.
I also love the $109 top grain leather iPad portfolio case which zips closed, hiding the expandable document pocket, money slot, mobile phone pocket–good for the dad whose iPad is like his office away from the office. (Or the mom? I can speak to that one.)
These one-of-a-kind cases are that great combo of rough-hewn and sleek, which means no one will ever mistake one for a man purse. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. –Liz
