Looking to spend a little money this holiday season, but don’t know what to spend it on? Why not pick up a designer iPad case that costs more than your iPad. Heck, you can buy an iPad that costs more than house, if you so desire.
The economy’s tough, but we’re tougher. Let’s take a look at some of the great stuff we can blow all our money on during these times:
1) David August iPad Case
This gatorskin case costs more than it’s worth. Designed by David August, the case will set you back $6,900. That’s enough to buy you several iPads. Heck, that will more than buy you a 12-Core Mac Pro, if you really want to burn your money away. Heck, you can make six people’s weeks by giving them each a grand then keeping 900 for yourself, and still buy an iPad and a reasonably-priced case. Besides, it doesn’t even protect the screen. But for $6,900 you can fly to a swamp, kill your own gator and turn it into a handbag for your iPad (Editor’s Note: iSmashPhone does not condone the killing of swamp life).
2) Louis Vuitton $350 iPad Case
Well, at least this one protects the screen, but it’s otherwise pretty lame. Aside from the $350 price tag, it it’s not designed to let you use it while it’s in the case. That, and the fact that it’s nothing more than a slip case for your iPad with no latch or anything to secure your tablet safely inside. Then again, if a $350 iPad case seems worth buying, replacing an iPad is no biggie, either.
3) Vaja ivolution Top Crystal
By comparison, this case is much more reasonably priced than the others. It’s $350, and actually has a front cover. The cover can be removed for easy access. It’s still pricey, but if you’re going to choose between expensive cases, this one may be the one to get. At least it looks well-made.
4) $202k iPad
Is your iPad not expensive enough for your tastes? Well, that’s okay, because this guy can help. If you want a gold-plated iPad (remember, gold is heavy, and the can become iPad heavy as it is when held for longer periods of time). The iPad will set you back ¬£129,995.00 or $202,896 dollars. Personally, we’d rather buy a sweet car or a house for that much. Still, you’d better act now, because there are only 10 of these available, and given that everyone has $200k to spend, they will go fast.
5) Much Cheaper Bling Pad
If the $200k was a tad too much, there is a much more affordable option from Mervis. It’s just under $20k and features 11.43 carats of diamonds. We’ll admit it’s pretty, but diamonds aren’t our thing. Well, it can make a nice stocking stuffer for those who want that last-minute gift for the kids.

Designers and Cases
Anywhere there are people willing to drop some cash, someone is willing to help them spend it. iPad cases worth almost 7 grand? Why not? Still, know that with that money, you can probably buy an iPad for every room in your house and still have some left over.
