Everything’s better with music in my opinion. There’s just something about listening to your favorite style of music that can make a person happier. According to Ravi Mehta, a business professor at the University of Illinois who studied the way a brain processes information against different levels of background noise, “a moderate level of noise (70 decibles to be exact) enhances creative problem-solving.”
So when I spotted this personalized car speaker by Things Remembered, I thought this would make a perfect gift for Nate. This school year he became an Assistant Principal, something he’d been working towards for 4 years. I loved the idea of personalizing it for him, and that it not only looked really cool, but doubled as a speaker.
With Bluetooth technology or USB he can connect his smartphone or iPad to the personalized car speaker. It also plays the radio, includes an adjustable volume control, and offers a docking station for his smartphone.
The Things Remembered personalized car speaker is a multifaceted product that is sure to impress and a great gift for dad, a brother, son, husband or car enthusiast. The car speaker is available in red and offers 4 lines of engraving space. It’s available at Things Remembered for $60, $65 with engraving.
Nate’s thoughts: He loves it! He mentioned when he is dealing with students that have made a bad choice, he uses the car speaker as a talking piece to get the kids to open up. He enjoys listening to music while working, and thinks the personalized car speaker is a perfect accessory to his office.

Hi Saudi, I’m unsure. Ours came as is and he uses it via the USB.

Never would I have thought a speaker could be in this shape/style. It’s pretty stinkin’ cool!
That’s pretty cool! At first glance the value that it provided was not readily seen: but the USB plug makes it very useful!
How neat! So I guess that it is good that I keep my television on while I work… 🙂
I like that it is a talking piece for him and his students.
Great gift! Our nephew would love this!
That car speaker is AWESOME!! I be my husband would LOVE it, but he wouldn’t get much use from it at work.
This is the perfect gift for a car & music lover. I can think of a few men on my gift list that would appreciate it.
