Soundtracking Your Holiday Season Wirelessly: JBL Flip 2 Portable Bluetooth Speaker

This shop has been compensated by #CollectiveBias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #GiftingAudioThis holiday season I’m often walking around the city with my headphones on, music blaring in my ears, getting into the holiday spirit, and fantasize that my life and times in the Big Apple is like being in one grandiose music video, that is soundtracking my life. Since life happens both outside of and behind closed doors, I need that soundtrack to continue whether I’m home or not. What has been my go-to for enjoying my holiday soundtrack? The JBL Flip 2 Portable Bluetooth Speakers. For many of my friends, enjoying their music is a must for their way of life as well. However, they’re not going to A) drag their desktop stereo or desktop computer everywhere they go, B) be willing to constantly stop what they’re doing to crane their necks to hear the next song on the playlist from another room, or C) walk around with their headphones on all the time. I’m sure many of you have friends and family that are similar, which is why you may want to consider #GiftingAudio this season.

Then Boyz II Men flies in with “Let It Snow” as I reminisce on what it was like when past loves were in my life, and what it could be like again (better sooner than later, but I digress).
