Wrap up your tech this holiday with Otterbox #holidayguide #cbias #socialfabric

I used to be a fashion-over-function kind of girl. When I upgraded my iPhone to the 4 last year, I went out and bought the cutest silicone Hello Kitty case for it. (Yes, I am a teenage girl at heart.) A few short weeks after getting my pretty new white phone I was playing with it and it slipped out of the case, falling onto the sidewalk on completely shattering the back of it. That day I headed to the mall and bought a hard case from one of the kiosks - and got a new back plate for the phone too.



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. Well, I've got a code for a free Otterbox phone case to give away to one lucky person. Just enter below via the Rafflecopter. I've included extra entries for connecting with Otterbox on Facebook and Twitter, and you can even increase your chances by entering the giveaways of the other bloggers participating in the campaign!
