Caseable Laptop Sleeve - A Christmas Gift Idea!

Caseable MacBook Sleeve* (£60)
In a time where seemingly everything is customisable, I don't know why custom laptop sleeves never even crossed my mind until Caseable* got in touch with me a little while ago. At £60 these definitely aren't cheap but I do think they would make a lovely gift, especially if you know someone that's going to be the lucky recipient of a shiny-new-laptop this Christmas! They also do everything from phone cases/pouches to tablet covers so there's lots to choose from if you're looking for something personalised.

The first case they sent me was a little too snug, despite being made for my laptop size. I could squeeze my laptop into it but it was a bit of a faff and took a little bit too much time for my liking - it definitely wasn't practical to quickly take out and put away. I emailed my concerns over to the guys and after receiving a few similar comments they have adjusted the size of their MacBook cases. The replacement they sent over to me is a much better fit, if anything it's just a tad too roomy but that's just me being extra critical I think. But that's what I'm here for, right?!

The quality is great. The zip closure is sturdy & secure and my laptop feels well protected but if I were being really picky I would like it to have just a little bit more padding, just to put my mind completely at ease - laptops aren't cheap after all! The photo quality is excellent, the colours are vibrant, the images are sharp and a really close replica of the originals.

Overall I would love to receive something like this as a gift, especially if it were covered in photographs that were super special. Undoubtedly an investment purchase but a worthy one I think - even better if you can get your hands on a discount code!


Do you have anything from Caseable?
Would you like to receive something like this as a gift?

Love, Jennie
xoxo

  4. The image turned out beautifully on the case - so pretty! I feel the same as you though, I like quite a lot of padding because I'm very protective of my laptop! xxx

    1. They are definitely on the pricey side, I do think they're worth it if you want a really personal accessory, especially if there's a discount code flying around! xo

  6. I so need to buy a laptop case, I adore the print on these. So unique! Think at that price though they will be going on my Christmas list rather than I purchase I make myself!

  11. I love the print, it looks gorgeous. And for 60 pounds it probably good quality as well. I don't have anything of this print but it looks really good.

  12. Oh the picture is gorgeous! I'm awful, I just pop my laptop in my bag because my sleeve was so chunky. I might invest for Christmas x

    1. Would be perfect for on-the-go with your laptop as it's not too chunky and won't take up much space! xo

  13. Ah Jennie this is too cute! I think it's a great idea, I really need to treat my laptop better, I'm useless at keeping stuff nicely packed away, perhaps this would do me good haha! :-)

  14. This is such a wonderful idea for a gift. The printed images look crystal clear! I especially like the third image.

    I do agree with you though that padding is essential. That's the main aspect needed to protect your laptop.

  15. The designs are so pretty who wouldn't want this as a gift? Although I'm fairly sure they wouldn't come in a size big enough for my laptop :( (I think it's 18inches or something ilke that). Lovely post :)

  17. Really like this idea, and how good they were to replace it too! Great customer service.

    hmm maybe...

  18. I think that laptop cases are amazing for people who move their laptops around a lot but not for someone like me, I rarely take my laptop out of my room let alone out out. I love these because I love anything personalised, but personally it would be a waste of money :-( hmphhh xx
