Giving the gift of music is an easy win for the music lover on the list. The following are gifts which are easy to find and even easier to give
DDJ-200 Pioneer DJ Controller
Have an aspiring DJ on your list? This light and compact DJ controller has everything a beginner DJ needs to get started. It works with a variety apps to help the DJ play music to mix. Apps such as WeDJ give a tutorial on how to get the show started. Feature-filled enough to excite the DJ but not too big to scare them off, the DDJ-200 DJ Controller from Pioneer is a dope gift.
Harman Kardon Citation
The Harman Kardon name means great quality with great sound. The Citation series is no different. It has rich sound and of course, Google Smart Assistant. The design is gorgeous and blends in with the home’s decor.
Customizable UE Boom 3 Portable Speaker
Ultimate Ears Boom series is loud, portable, long-lasting and also customizable. The customizable Boom 3 speaker is a great gift for someone who enjoys music on-the-go but wants to add their personal touch to things.
Wonderboom 2 Speaker
If the customizable Boom 3 speaker is out of your price range, the Wonderboom makes a great, affordable alternative. The cute cube is water-resistant and sounds very loud for its small size.
This isn’t necessarily a new product but it’s worth the mention because it works well alone and paired with other Sonos products. It also works with either Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa smart assistants. Hook a pair of these to a Sonos Playbase and get a quick and simple 2.1 setup. I have two of the speakers and use them sooo much.
Bowers & Wilkins Formation Wedge Wireless Speaker
This speaker is the priciest on the list. The Formation Wedge is a beautifully designed wireless speaker. We got to see and hear it at launch and it looks and sounds amazing. What’s great about it is that it works over Wifi and bluetooth, unlike the Sonos One.
Lenovo Smart Clock
This is more a clock than a speaker but if the person on the list enjoys wants the function of a smart clock without having to rely on their phone, the Lenovo Smart Clock might be a good fit. It has Google Assistant which allows you to set alarms and play music, albeit, not too loudly.
Soundcore Model Zero Speaker
If you want a speaker with lots of design without the very expensive price tag, the Model Zero speaker fits the bill. It has a modern design with all the smart speaker features you’re looking for.
Urbanears Ralis Portable Bluetooth Speaker
Available in four colors, the Urbanears Ralis portable bluetooth speaker looks great inside and outside of the house. It has tons of features, such as long battery life, a port to charge your phone, and multi-host play, where multiple people can control the speaker.
Personalized JBL Speaker or Headphones
This affordable gift has a personal touch. Go to JBL’s personalization and upload an image or add text to go on a JBL speaker or headphones.
