Great Notebook Cases for Mother’s Day

It stumps you ever year. Picking out the perfect gift for the woman who brought you into the world is no joke. But, it’s safe to say that she can never have too many bags. Each one in her closet has a specific use, and is meant for a specific occasion. But no collection is ever complete, so we rounded up some hot new choices that she’ll definitely appreciate, no matter what her needs.

The Executive Mom:

The classy Thoroughbred tote is perfect for business-minded mothers, and will blend in with any boardroom. It features leather trim, gold decorative hardware, and sturdy—if short—handles. The nylon twill exterior opens up into three colorfully lined compartments, making gear easy to find. The middle chamber is minimally padded to secure a laptop up to 15.6 inches, and it comes with an attachable shoulder strap. Women in Business Thoroughbred Tote; $79.99 (black), $99.99 (Tan)

The Outdoor Mom:

The exterior of the Osprey Flap Jill Pack is made from durable polyester with a water-resistant coating, and the drawcord collar will help prevent rain from seeping in. This backpack can securely carry a 15.4-inch notebook inside the high-density foam-lined compartment (complete with velcro strap), while leaving plenty of space for all the stuff she needs on the go. Available in black, Cornflower, and Khaki exteriors with webbing available in brown, green, and Hot Pink. Osprey Flap Jill Pack; $89

Tablet-Loving Mom:

She logged in at 5:30 a.m. on March 12th to pre-order her very own iPad, so the least you can do is help her keep it safe. The Booq Boa XS neoprene skin offers protection from the scuffs and bumps that come with bouncing around inside another bag, backpack, or purse, while the soft exterior and rigid flat base provides gripping comfort and impact protection. Choose from black, Sand, Turquoise, Violet, or yellow. Booq Boa Skin XS; $29.95

Clean Freak Mom:

iSkin built Microban antimicrobial product protection into its iPhone case, the revo2, to help keep her smart phone clean and sanitary even when not-so-clean hands try to play with it. Plus, it keeps her device ruggedly good-looking, with her choice of Diablo, Onyx, Ozone, or Sonic two-tone colors. In addition to the silicone exterior, this skin features face shield protection, integrated docking and headphone port covers, and raised surface accents for the volume and power buttons. iSkin revo2; $39.99

Multitasking Mom:

With SkoobaWraps, she can swaddle just about anything—her DSLR, iPad, eReader, laptop, and more—in a protective cover that guards against the bumps and scratches of everyday life. Then, she’s ready to simply drop it into her luggage, purse, or backpack and go. Available in three sizes, the layered foam construction is 0.1 inches thick, and the overlapping design with hook and loop closures conforms to any shape. SkoobaWrap; $12.95 (small), $14.95 (medium), $17.95 (large)
