My husband loves music so this year I thought it would be fun to get him a bluetooth speaker for Christmas. And of course, I couldn’t just give him the speaker, so I put together a musical scavenger hunt for him to find his gift. It’s the perfect gift idea for music lovers! And best of all, I’m hosting a giveaway where you could win one of 30 speakers up for grabs so make sure to read all the way to the bottom for details.
He may not know it, but one of the things that first made me fall in love with my husband was his love for music. On one of our first dates, he pulled out the guitar and played while I sang along. There is just something about a man with a guitar that triggers the swoon reflex and swoon I did. He doesn’t play the guitar as often anymore, but he still loves music and listens to it all the time – in the shower, while he works, while he works out, and even while he cooks. Since I’m a music lover myself, I love having music be such a big part of our life. That’s why when I saw the JBL Charge 2 Speaker on JBL.com, I knew I wanted to get it for him this year.
The JBL Charge 2 speaker is the perfect holiday gift for the music lover in your life and if you buy it directly from the website, you can get free ground shipping and returns just in time for the holidays. I’m a huge fan of online shopping; it’s just so much easier than going to an actual store and picking it out. I received mine quickly and can’t wait for him to try it out after the holidays!
Since the gift itself isn’t super creative, I thought it would be fun to give it to him in a creative way. When I was growing up my parents would often send my siblings and me on a hunt to find our big presents. They would give us some sort of puzzle, clue, etc. that would lead us around the house or even around the neighborhood in search of our gift. I decided to keep that tradition alive this year and created a simple little musical scavenger hunt using lines from some of my husband’s favorite songs. He will have to fill in the blanks to figure out where the next clue is. Ten points to anyone who can come up with all six songs, without using Google.
I made envelopes out of copies of sheet music and placed each of the clues into one envelope. On Christmas Day, I’ll hide the envelopes around the house to lead him on a musical scavenger hunt. At the end, he’ll find his new bluetooth speaker!
And for one last fun element, I created a playlist of our favorite songs from 2014 that I’m going to sneak onto his iPhone before he opens the gift. That way not only will he get an awesome gift, he will also have some great new music to play on it. Some of these songs are not actually from 2014, but they’re still our favorite songs from the year. And if you’re looking for more great playlists, search Instagram or Twitter for the hashtag #GiftingAudio and #CollectiveBias and you’ll find plenty of great ideas!
