Blackbox Case, $99-$129: Made from solid oak, these laptop cases ensure your laptop doesn't get damaged. It may seem like it would be super heavy, but it's actually about the same weight as a beer bottle.

Miniot Custom Wood Covers, $70-$120: This may be marketed for the iPad, but it can easily work with other e-readers on the market. It unfolds to protect the screen while not in use and rolls up to transform itself into stand.

JackBacks Custom Wood Covers, $89-$150: We recently reviewed JackBacks and really liked the products. You can custom engrave these wood backs. The backs come in a variety of wood and actually make the iPhone a lot lighter!
