    I am handing over my phone to my sister but want to get her a case. Any "girly" type cases out there you girls wanna share that you might own? Or men who have purchased something for their girl?

    Thanks

    How old is she?

    Most of the "girls" I see that have iPhones have the 5c with those apple cases.

    Those with 5s/5 have clear ones....at least that's what the small sample have here at work.

    I ended up getting her a purple Incipio Frequency. Thanks for the suggestions guys Speck and other looks nice if she likes anything else I'll probably get her 1 more.

    Get the Spigen Ultra Hybrid crystal clear. I know a lot of women (girls lol) like to show off their case. Or Belkin Grip candy.

    If you want girlie, go to one of your local malls and find the Cellairis booth. I swear every single one of their cases is girlie. :)

    Consider the specific person versus just the person's gender. All females don't have identical preferences. My wife has a zebra case and I really haven't seen any other female with the same case (not that what I've seen is statistically significant or anything). Provide some details on what she prefers. We don't know her at all and our suggestions would just be completely random without any knowledge of her preferences.

    I love those:

    i saw some girl use otterbox (millitary color) on the plane the other day, which in my opinion, also a good option, depending on how the character i guess.

    These are awesome. I was also looking for casings just like these, but I couldn't find one. Is this DIY?

    Etsy is a good spot to shop for anything handcrafted. Including cases. :)

    Otterbox cases I see them everywhere. Marshalls sells them for $15.

    Old post, but still relevant...

    I just got a Incipio Feather in pink yesterday. Love it. I wasn't into it for the first few hours, but it has grown on me and works with my Thermodo.

    I also recommend the SwitchEasy NUDE cases. I have one of those on my iPod Touch. Mine is the clear version, but they come in pretty colors too.

    Agree. If you want protection, a CandyShell is enough, they'll manage in a handbag anyway (my mom has one on hers). The PixelSkin HD is very good too. I actually gave mine to my dad after he went through two OtterBoxes that both broke on him. It has served him well for the last two years. Although it changed to a black version, from the original purple. :eek:

    I got my wife something with paisley that she liked for a while until it started to crack. Until I could find a replacement I protected her phone with a black Magpul case... she ended up liking the Magpul a lot so she stayed with that.

    I say just get a Magpul. They're affordable and they even come in orange and pink.

    I can't find the link of the case, not sure weather it is DIY or not.
    But I see many pins in pinterest are from Etsy

    You could make her a customizable iPhone case, I did that for my sister for her birthday last year. I used Shutterfly to make the iPhone case and I used a few photos of us to make a collage. She loved it so this might be something your sister might like, too.
