The Powerful Speaker Dock That's WAY Better Than a Gift Card

Everyone has that one person in their lives that is impossible to shop for. You know, the one that you give gift cards or money to every year on their birthday because you really have no idea what to get them.

For me, that person is my friend Mindy, who has an interesting concept of what "cute" means. Mindy prides herself in filling her life with the most unique and quirky items she can find. Every item she owns, from her jewelry to her furniture, is unusual and eccentric, and somehow works for her. Even her dog, the friendliest mutant Chihuahua with the meanest overbite, perfectly blends into her wacky world.

When her birthday came around this year, I decided to put in the extra effort it would take to buy her a gift that was as fun and unique as everything she owns. I knew this would take time, so I started my search early. Before I knew it, her birthday was in a week and I had yet to find her the perfect gift.

And then I found the GOgroove BoomBUDDY, a one-of-a-kind speaker and charging dock for Apple iPod and iPhones. What first attracted me to this far-out speaker dock was its obvious unique design. I loved that the BoomBUDDY's sunglasses were really speakers! Adding to its fun and playful characteristics, the power and volume levels are controlled with the turn of its "nose." In addition, the amber-colored LED nose lights up when turned on.

I knew the speaker dock definitely had potential, but a cute face was not enough to sell me. So I asked around and read reviews, and discovered that the BoomBUDDY delivered amazing sound quality, especially with the 4-inch subwoofer, located at the BoomBUDDY's "feet."

The BoomBUDDY is also very versatile. Although the 30-pin dock is specifically designed to charge, dock, and play audio from Apple iPod and iPhone models, users can use the AUX-in port to play audio from other players including MP3 players, smartphones, desktop computers, laptops, netbooks, tablets, and other audio-playing devices.

Needless to say, Mindy was very excited to receive an actual gift from me as opposed to the usual envelope. And she loved her BoomBUDDY so much that she plugged it in and hooked up her iPhone immediately, using it to play music for the duration of her birthday party! And I'm not sure if it's Mindy's influence, if the BoomBUDDY was that great, or a little of both, but I loved it so much that I decided to buy one for myself!

You can get a BoomBUDDY for yourself (or that hard to shop for friend) at Accessory Genie. For more information on the GOgroove BoomBUDDY Charging Dock and Speaker System, and Accessory Genie, visit
