Fast forward a few months, and my phone is holding up pretty well. That case I bought is pretty chewed up from hitting the ground. I have to admit, every time I would drop my phone - and I drop it several times a day, no joke - I would pick it up half-expecting it to be broken. The Party Blu Prints #holidayguide that I mentioned in another post had Otterbox phone cases listed as one of the top holiday gifts to give this year, so I was excited to check them out for myself.
If you have checked out the holiday e-guide, you should! I love all the great ideas, and the format makes it feel like I'm flipping through a magazine, but without wasting any paper.
I got my Defender Series case from the Otterbox site, but if you're looking to add one or more to your holiday shopping list, you can find then at Walmart for a great price. I know a few family members of mine that I'm going to pick one up for. Surprisingly, I'm not the clumsiest person in my family!
I guess I kind of have a thing for the color pink, because I was really digging this Commuter Series case I found at Walmart. And for only $34.88, you can protect your phone for a reasonable price. (And I can't help but love that a portion of the proceeds go to the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade fund.)
Check out how my new case measures up to the old one. The Otterbox is definitely bigger, but I didn't find it to be too much heavier, and it still feels great in my hand - not too bulky. I've already dropped my phone several times and didn't even flinch. I knew the Otterbox was doing its job. And check out how messed up the bottom of my old case is. I wasn't kidding about how much I drop my phone.
Do you want to wrap up your tech too? Or maybe you want to cross one of the holiday gifts off of your shopping list.
