Do you still have holiday shopping left to do? If you are like me, the answer is YES! If so, we have the perfect accessory for anyone making the nice list this year – JBL® Flip wireless speaker. At just $99.99 (plus tax), this mighty speaker puts up one heck of a party.

I love love love how portable this speaker is. Did I mention I love the portability? From the pool to my morning exercise group, this speaker made the rounds in our neighborhood and provided plenty of entertainment. I like that it comes with a Neoprene™ carrying pouch. This gave me a little more peace of mind when it was tossed in our pool bag among towels and sand buckets.

It’s also great at home. I put it to good use for many parties. Our guests tend to mix and mingle and move from the kitchen, to the backyard and to cornhole games in the driveway. Since this speaker is wireless and easy to transport the music quickly followed the crowd without missing a beat.

Best part is the sound is incredible. Several people approached me at the pool – not because they were impressed with my playlist, but because they wanted to know what speaker I was using. For how small it is, you’ll be amazed at the quality and quantity of sound it puts out. It’s not fair that my job can be this much fun!

The speaker pairs easily with any Bluetooth-equipped device. I found the fully charged battery to last for a good amount of time, but if you run out of battery you can still play music while it charges.

I might just get a JBL Flip wireless speaker for everyone left on my list. Good luck finishing up your holiday shopping!
