The holidays bring an endless stream of gifts: for the office, for family, maybe for yourself.  If any of your gift recipients are the proud owner of a new iPhone 5 and like their gadgets to have a bit of style, why not check out one of the X-Doria’s Engage cases? While their Venue rubberized case is good for protection and style, the Form line features striking designs that are sure to draw attention.

Engage Form

While “shiny translucent metal basketweave texture” is quite a mouthful, the Engage Form is a beautiful addition to your iPhone. The basketweave pattern not only catches the light, adding dimension to your phone, but the raised ripples provide a comfortable grip when holding the phone in any position.

Engage Form

Styled of high-impact polycarbonate, this case offers full access to all your phone’ ports via cutouts, and has only the barest of bezels so it does not get in the way.

It is still possible to scratch the iPhone, because the texture on the back is open, but the case offers good all around protection from light bumps and most scratches. As a snap on case, the Engage Form is not easily removable, but it looks so good you probably will not want to take it off anyway.

At $30, the case is available in your choice of silver, black, gold, maroon, red, or blue at the X-Doria store.

Engage Bamboo

For the woodsy or eco-friendly fashionista, Engage’s Bamboo case fuses nature with protection. Available in two pattern—White+Waves or Silver+Curves—this case offers a lightweight snap on design with smooth plastic sides and a real bamboo inlay.

Laser-etched patterns on the bamboo trace curvy or wavy patterns, while the case’s razor thin profile adds virtually no bulk to your iPhone. The bamboo inlay has a thin coated layer to keep a shiny luster and smooth feeling, and the case features cutouts over all the iPhone’s major ports for easy accessibility.

The Engage Bamboo case is $35 and is available from the X-Doria store.
