Kensington Protective Cover & Stand ($34.99)
This case keeps your iPad mini safe with two layers of protection: a soft, velvet interior and a hard shell exterior. Plus, it props your tablet up with its two-position stand, so you can view multimedia hands-free or type on the touch screen with both hands. The case maintains a slim profile, and all ports are still accessible. Available in Black Marble, Brown Marble and Tan Snake.
