This mini sound system that “iDevice” users will love combines function with style in all the right ways. With Reson8 speakers and a subwoofer built-in, this little gadget packs a punch (of sound, that is)! Color-changing modes that can be set to your music make for an instant mood elevator. The universal dock fits most iPods and iPhones and inserts for popular models are included to make it compatible for all of your iStuff. And the best part is, it charges your device while your music plays, so you can listen to hours of feel-good fun. A great gift for music-minded or tech-obsessed tweens. (iHome, $55.54)
