Family Gift Ideas Bose Dock For Christmas This Year

Updated on October 19, 2013

One Gift For The Entire Family

For many of us this year Christmas gifting may be a bit lighter than in previous years due to the economy. Rather than purchase gifts for everyone in your household why not buy one gift that the entire family can enjoy. The Bose SoundDock may be just what you're looking for.

Buying gifts for other families such as your close friends can get quite expensive especially if you're including one or two adults and their children. If they all love music and have i devices you may want to consider buying one gift for all of them.

The Gift Of Music

With all the iPods, iPhones, iPod Touch, iPod Nano, iPod Classic or any iPod that has a click wheel, this Bose SoundDock will make a wonderful addition for your listening pleasure.

Bose Sound Dock Features

One of the features I enjoy about this is that I can move it easily from the kitchen to the bedroom and simply plug my iPhone into it, as it only weighs 4.6 pounds.

You have the option of plugging in other audio devices such as an mp3, DVD player, or a CD player.

Bose always gives you excellent sound quality and this device can be controlled with a remote that is included with the SoundDock.

While your device is in the dock it will be automatically charged. I find the design of this quite attractive and because it is slim, it will fit nicely on a shelf, table or even on top of the refrigerator.

If you have teenagers this gift would make a welcomed family gift this year.

Dock Extender Cable

We found that it was a bit of a pain to remove our iPhone cases every time we wanted to plug into the SoundDock. This dock extender cable came in very handy and is the perfect addition for the Bose Soundock.

Also available are dock extension extender cables that will work as well.

      Music is always a great gift, and there are so many gadgets to play music on now, the gift giving is so much easier. Thanks for sharing this great info, perfect timing...

      kellymom, Thank you.

      RH, We had a radio/cd player in the kitchen but the reception was so bad on it. With the iPhone I have a radio app that picks up radio stations from all over the world. Love it.

      Susan, Thanks.

      Dave, When I was younger I spent more time at church than I did at home. I was in many Church Choirs. Thank you for your comments.

      Bill, Thank you :)

      We've had an iPod deck for a few years, and we use it for outside events. It was well worth the money.

      Good Hub!

      Susan: My special gift of music has been the one gift I can give of myself and in doing it, I provide much pleasure.

      I serve with two choirs in two different churches performing a Christmas concert in each, as well I sing a Midnight service in one church on Christmas Eve and then do a morning service in the other Christmas Day, and weather permitting that could become two services on Christmas Day.

      In this way I share of myself with Almighty God, who deserves this loving attention, as well as family and friends, and the congregation in both churches.

      This is what Christmas giving is truly about giving of one's self as God gave of Himself, not the meaningless gift giving of material things trying to impress.

      I have an Ipod dock and I really love it. However, it isn't the traveling kind. Not saying that it isn't light, but we just don't move it around. I would still like another one though for the upstairs. Great idea for a dock the whole family can enjoy!

      Susan - that is a great idea!! I just bought a little boom box for the kitchen but it works on radio wave frequency (which is the same as lots of appliances) so I can't keep good sound in there when I'm cooking. If I hold the antennae it sounds great! But that makes it super hard to cook and SING:) And everyone would enjoy it!
