Holiday Gift Guide 2014: AwoX StriimLIGHT mini

*Disclosure: I received this product to review for myself. I was not compensated in any other way and all opinions posted here are mine and mine alone. 

So, I've been reviewing products on this blog for about 5 years now. I've seen a lot of unusual and creative things during that time.  But today I am coming to you with what I think is the absolute most creative product I've ever had the opportunity to review- the AwoX StriimLIGHT mini.  It's hard to tell what this product is from the name, so here's a bit about it from its website: 

Stream music from your phone or computer anywhere in the home

AwoX StriimLIGHT mini™ is a small sized energy-saving LED light bulb with an integrated Bluetooth® speaker.
Perfect for smaller light fixtures, just screw in AwoX StriimLIGHT mini™ and use the “Play to” feature on your Bluetooth®  enabled music player to enjoy your music wherever you want.

Here's a video that I took that shows this fun light in action:

 I love this light/speaker combo! It's so fun! My kids love to dance upstairs while the music plays through the light fixture. It was really easy to set up- all I had to do was screw in the lightbulb and turn the Bluetooth on on my iPod, then it was time for a music and light party! I really like that this lightbulb comes with a remote, so I don't have to be physically in the same room to turn it on or off.

The StriimLIGHT mini is not a very bright lightbulb, so it's best used with a light that is not the main light fixture in your room, if brightness is a concern.  But it's really a fun product and would certainly make your holiday party unique! This would be a fabulous gift for the person in your life who loves music and entertaining!
