Keep connected stylishly with a distinctive iPhone or tablet case - from classic leather to fun and quirky prints. The fashion technology accessory market just keeps growing as our online and social media obsession grows, with Marc by Marc Jacobs' quirky cases popular purchases at Workshop, and chain stores offering their own versions - all great Christmas gifts for those who simply can't part with their phones.

Locally, jewellery label Meadowlark has released two phone cases - sparkling diamonds, or a beating heart for darker tastes - while Karen Walker's Newmarket boutique is selling perfect technology gifts from Happy Socks, including fun polka dot and zebra print iPhone 5 cases and leopard print cases for laptops.

The best part? It's a gift that they'll use all day, every day - and are likely to show off on Instagram.
