This handy case for the iPhone 5C simply but ingeniously combines two things you’re rarely without — your phone and your wallet — into one, giving you less things to keep track of. The ultra-slim design features built-in slots for your most frequently used cards (and cash), while its durable one-piece construction and soft-touch matte finish securely protect your phone from scratches and impact. A thumb release lets you easily spring whatever card you need, and it comes in a range of colors from black to purple. $29.99.
