  • Grove: not your run-of-the-mill iPhone case — these are handmade in Portland, Oregon … an eco designaphobe’s planet-friendly iPhone cases fashioned from renewable bamboo and recycled hardwood. Choose from either their house designs (Pulsar & Spot are personal favs; $99) or submit your own design – a little pricey but neat way to personalize that very precious device. A custom design costs around $129 & takes several weeks to turnaround. @ grovemade.com
