2019 Guide to Buying Tech Gifts for Christmas - Rugged Cases for Parents & Kids

Guide to gifting rugged tablet cases for kids and parents

Last December, I was in Minnesota. Nothing compares to spending Christmas in the USA. It was my second time visiting family during this period.

The home decorations were abundant, as was gift shopping. The tradition of spending days with family was warming. I loved fireplaces too. Two things struck me the most.

First, the warm hospitality contrasts the extreme cold outside.

Minneapolis is very cold. Ice and snow everywhere. Coming into a home from the brutal winter gave a real sense of shelter.

Second, the number of presents gifted at Christmas.

Kids would get not one, but three, four, or even five presents from the same person. The gift distribution skews towards the youngest members of the family.

My parents gave me one gift each Christmas. Sometimes they would even bundle it with my birthday in January. You can imagine my surprise. It's a different culture.

So about those gifts. At Tablet2Cases, we only want you to have to gift the best cases.

The three-part guide for buying tech gifts for Christmas completes here. We covered gifting keyboard tablet cases and phone cases with accessories already.

Our final selection of rugged tablet cases for kids and their parents are below.

Let's not forget about grandparents too. As they say in India, old is gold. Our parents need gifts, as well. And they could use a protective case for their iPad.



Cooper Trooper 2K Drop Proof Case

Cooper Trooper 2K Drop Proof Case

The Trooper 2K by Cooper Cases is the world's first universal rugged case. No kidding. It launched back in 2016, and there is still nothing like it on the market.

The case is built entirely from silicon that stretches to fit each device. Cooper Cases huffed and puffed until they got the final product ready. It was not simple to get the design right.

The Trooper 2K is perfect for lesser-known devices that need rugged protection. It comes in four sizes to accommodate 7-10" tablets.

The reinforced corners provide robust protection from accidental drops. The case also has a stand for watching movies. It can stand in landscape and portrait formats.

Two extra elements make it unique - a hand strap and a shoulder strap.

The hand strap works like a baseball glove. It becomes an extension of your body, making it easy to grip the device with one hand. Very useful with fragile screens. Just don't try catching balls with it.

The detachable shoulder strap converts your cover into a carrying case. Swing it over the shoulder while holding your coffee and texting on your phone.

The strap has a million uses because any of the corners can attach to the belt. Hang it as you use it - vertically or horizontally.

Super handy during car travel too. Wrap the shoulder strap around the car's headrest to watch movies in the back.

Target: Everyone
Models: Most 7", 8", 9" and 10" tablets
Price: $17.95, $19.95
