For the Tween

jbl speakers

I don’t know about your tween, but my 2 tweens are ALL about music. Check out these speakers from JBL!

JBL Charge 2– Between the twin passive radiators for deep bass, the massive 6000mAh battery and the hands-free conference speakerphone the key benefit is the Bluetooth Social Mode which allows up to three different users to take their turns to play their own playlists on a single speaker.

JBL Flip 2– Aside from the dual performance-tuned JBL drivers and a built-in bass port, the key benefit of the JBL Flip 2 is the SoundClear echo and noise cancellation combined with the state-of the art microphone system to pick up calls on the speaker.

JBL Reflect Earbud headphones–  Sweat proof ergonomic design.  With a 5 hour rechargeable battery and a reach of about 40 feet, the JBL Reflect BT’s key benefit is the design of the ergonomic eartips along with the built-in magnets which keep your buds on standby without loose cables.

For Grandpa

gps for car

Sorry Grandpa (my dad) – no offense but the phone GPS DOES NOT CUT IT for you. My sister has lived in the same house for the last 2 years and he still can’t find his way there. We get the inevitable phone call “WHERE DO YOU LIVE?” It’s because he isn’t savvy with his phone. He needs a GPS for his car.  Check out these car GPS options if you have a directionally challenged friend or family member:
