Did you put your Christmas tree up yet? In our family, we have a tradition where my mother and I put up the tree after Thanksgiving dinner. But, now with children, putting up the tree is even more fun, as my oldest daughter gets to help us. Not only did she make a few paper ornaments for the tree, but she had a blast keeping us company by dancing around the tree to the holiday music I had playing.
I don't know about you, but I just love Christmas music. If I am not driving in the car with the family listening to non-stop holiday tunes, then I have my iPad or iPod on, streaming my favorite songs. I used to use a docking station for my iPod, which had a small speaker built in, but I was not impressed with the quality of the sound and the range in which I could hear the music from. I would have to be right next to the speaker just to hear it and enjoy it. That was, until I was recently sent Soundfreaq Sound Kick. This award-winning portable, wireless speaker is affordable at only $99.99, much less than I paid for the portable speaker I had been using and was not satisfied with. The Soundfreaq Sound Kick is compatible with any Bluetooth device, so you don't have to attach your iPod, iPad, iPhone, etc. to the speaker. This is great as you don't have to give up using your devices just to dock it and share music for all to enjoy.
I put the Soundfreaq Sound Kick to the test and loved how I was able to listen to holiday music with my mother and oldest daughter, while my husband was using the iPad. And, my dad enjoyed listening to the music, as he rocked our youngest to sleep after our dinner.
Here are just some of the features of the Soundfreaq Sound Kick:
- Plays any audio from your mobile device including music, movies, TV shows, videos, games, Internet radio and apps.

By the end of the night, the tree was up and we were all getting into the holiday spirit. The girls ended up camping out on the floor in front of the fireplace, and drifted off to sleep as the holiday music filled the living room. And, my mother and I were able to finalize our Black Friday lists, as we sang along to family favorites. If it wasn't for the affordable Soundfreaq Sound Kick, which is available in various colors (including the new Chromatics Collection in colorful Sunset, Ocean and Twilight) to suit your style, we would not have spend Thanksgiving day enjoying holiday tunes like we did. In years past, after an hour of straining to hear the songs, or needing to unplug the portable speaker to bring into another room, we would have shut the music off. But, with the Soundfreaq Sound Kick, we couldn't get over the clean, crisp sound, and how we were able to use our devices while listening to music, instead of having to dock it and walk away. And, the price is even nicer, as I can pick up a few of these and put in different areas of the house, so that the music can be enjoyed wherever and whenever we want. Also, at this price, I can see picking up a few to give to family and friends who can't live without their iPods, iPhones and iPads, and love listening to music. Now, they can enjoy the best sound clarity that I have heard in a portable speaker, while not having to give up their devices. :-) I have already been asked by family to bring this compact portable speaker to upcoming holiday parties, so that they can use and share their favorite holiday music with guests.
With the holiday season if full gear, why not consider picking up a Soundfreaq Sound Kick, and sharing holiday music when guests come to visit, or just enjoy with the family. Again, this portable, wireless speaker is only $99.99 and comes in a variety of colors -- including the new Chromatics Collection in colorful Sunset, Ocean and Twilight.
