Still looking for the perfect Christmas gift?the Pocket Speaker by Carbon Audio: a portable Bluetooth speaker is exactly what the tech or music lover in your life needs!
Are you one of those people who starts listening to Christmas music before Thanksgiving? I am. When it comes to the craziness of the the holidays (and end of the semester if you are a teacher), music is one of the only things that can get me through the cleaning, decorating, grading, wrapping, cooking, baking, and entertaining that comes with this time of year.
Usually I end up streaming a holiday music channel on the tv but that gets old pretty fast since I can't hear it once I leave the room and I can't really pick my own songs (and I have an embarrassingly large collection of Christmas music on my iTunes year round). Thanks to the Pocket Speaker, I can now listen to my music anytime, anywhere.
As someone who is just as obsessed with my Apple products as I am holiday music, I was so excited to try out the Pocket Speaker. I teach at a 1:1 iPad school and own an iPad and iPhone for my personal use. To say we are an "ifamily" would be an understatement. The Pocket Speaker is available exclusively in Apple stores and while I was down in Palm Beach last weekend I stopped by the Apple Store in the Gardens Mall to pick one up.
Being a Saturday a few weeks before Christmas the store was slammed but despite the crowds, an associate came up to me right away and was able to show me where the Pocket Speakers were. I was thrilled to see that they had the pink one in stock. Once I got it home, I couldn't wait to try it out and as soon as I went through the two easy steps to hook up my phone to the Bluetooth, I was in love.
Not only does the Pocket Speaker give 360 degree sound with music coming from both sides but it is very portable and light weight. It has really come in handy this week as we hang lights, clean the house, bake and decorate for our Christmas party this Saturday. I cannot wait to have it outside with us on Saturday night around the fire pit during the party. Justin already has big plans of bringing it with us next time we go camping (he thinks there will be a next time....) and it is so small that we will be able to bring it with us when we fly to North Carolina later this month so we can listen to music in our hotel room.
The Pocket Speaker would make a great gift for anyone on your holiday shopping list or as a fun treat for yourself too. It's the kind of gift that Justin would have loved if I hadn't been so excited to use it that I couldn't save it for a gift for him.
But I can still get him one later one because you can actually hook two Pocket Speakers up to the same device for double the sound or so that you can listen to the same thing in different rooms. Good thing I live over an hour away from the Apple store or I have a feeling I would be buying a second one for that purpose before our party on Saturday. Our guests deserve the best right?
Who in your life would love to get a Pocket Speaker for Christmas?
