Humidifier? Nope. Nail dryer? Think again. It’s a wireless speaker and dock by Brookstone.

Brookstone Speaker

This gadget amplifies power just like a floor-to-ceiling sound system, but it’s only 20 inches high. That’s right. The next party you host? Inside or out (oh yeah – it’s weatherproof, too), simply dock your iPhone® and transmit music up to 150 feet away, even through walls and ceilings.

Better alert the neighbors. Things are about to get loud.

Grab this speaker here, then visit our Must-Have Gadgets for Spring: Brookstone & More Boutique on Wednesday, February 5, at 3PM ET.

Remember the holidays when you were younger? Taking laps around the toy store in wide-eyed wonder and mentally assembling your wish list? There were more games, wind-up gadgets, and remote-control gizmos than one kid could ever hope for. Well, Brookstone is kind of like that for grown-ups, thanks to its travel-sized appliances, tech accessories, and other goodies that aim to make everyday life a lot easier, comfier, and more fun. Here, three Rue associates share what they’d love to unwrap this year.

Brookstone Wish List

The Star Cruiser Remote-Control Indoor Helicopter
“Because there’s no better way to drive my coworkers nuts than having a remote-control helicopter buzzing around them.”
– Arash H., Senior Mobile Product Manager

The Steam Bug Travel Steam Iron
“I’ve always loved anything miniature, and this tiny little iron is the cutest possible travel item to keep all of my stuff wrinkle-free.”
– Emma L., Assistant Stylist

Bar10Der 10-in-1 Bartending Tool
“I can consider myself a professional mixologist once I add this to my collection, right? Bring on the bar cart.”
– Kelly H., Social Media Writer

Promise: you’ll get total gift-giving glee from watching the lucky recipients’ faces when they unwrap these oh-so-fitting gadgets.

From putting off laundry day to flowers even I am not capable of killing, here’s a look at all the lovely things I’ll be snapping up off of Rue this week.

1. Maggie by Magaschoni cashmere dress. Staying comfy-casual has always been my preferred code of dress (we’re talking since before first steps were taken), and this cashmere number totally counts as looking smartly put-together, while feeling entirely lounge-y. Our Maggie by Magaschoni Boutique opens Monday, October 22, at 11AM ET.

2. NDI Florals bouquet. “Taking care of living creatures” may not top the list of things I’m fantastic at, so these faux florals are just the bouquet for me. Our NDI Florals Boutique opens Thursday, October 25, at 11AM ET.

3. Brookstone® earbuds. My surest of travel companions this holiday season? Screaming babies. Loads of them. While these surround-sound earbuds were specifically engineered to protect my eardrums, it’s safe to say they’ll be preserving my sanity, too. Our Brookstone® Boutique opens Tuesday, October 23, at 11AM ET.

4. Amrita Singh necklace. Bib necklaces will forever set my heart racing. Same with mixed-media. Perhaps a just-in-case medic should be on the scene when this glorious piece arrives? Our Add Some Spice: Hues with Heat Boutique opens Saturday, October 27, at 11AM ET.

5. Honeydew Intimates boyshorts. There’s no better way to put off laundry day than by buying new underthings. Our Honeydew Intimates Boutique opens Thursday, October 25, at 11AM ET.
