MacBook EnvelopeMacBook Envelope Detail

How many people do you know with laptops now? How many take care of them? Why not help them along with this unisex, modern, well-crafted and low profile laptop case. While you’re at it pick one of for yourself because the price is right AND so is the style. It is also a green product.

Designed by a Brooklyn up and comer, Fern Fiddle Head (also a food), this MacBook “envelope” is a nice alternative to the other foam-like designs out there. It is available on Etsy (if you do not know what Etsy is yet then please follow the link and check it out as it is pretty much one of the coolest and most innovative communities to happen in this decade).

To help our readers stuff their friends’ stockings this year, TSA is bringing you a weeklong series of posts on holiday gift ideas.

To start off I’m posting about a good friend of mine in Colorado, Jennifer Roberts, who runs a fantastic shop called Composition. It’s a storefront in the Belmar shopping center in Denver, though they also sell quite a lot of merchandise online through their nifty website. This is a great place to find some unique designer-friendly presents.
