Kinivo for Dads or Grads!

Disclosure: I received a sample product in exchange for the post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

Some gifts are universally loved, regardless of age. Kinivo has a site like that...where you can find gifts for dads or grads that would be appreciated by both...and the items are priced right too. I found two that I really like, that could be used as a great gift idea for dad or grad.

Kinivo ZX100 Mini Portable Speaker with
rechargeable battery & enhanced bass resonator.

The first is the Kinivo ZX100 Mini Portable Speaker. This little beauty is nice because you can easily take it on the go from room to room, place to place, yard to yard, lol (we often yard hop here in our neighborhood ;) ), etc.. It's an easy way to take your tunes with you where you want them, which I love. I'm also very fond of no cords!! One of my biggest flubs as an adult was running on the treadmill with a portable stereo on the table next to me for my music. Somehow, and to this day I still don't know how, the cord was parallel to the machine, I tripped on the cord. It not only catapulted me off of the treadmill, but it also pulled the entire electrical socket out of the wall. So yeah...for me, the thought of no cords is nice. Very nice. ;)

I like that you can just plug your device right into the mini speaker.

With the Kinivo, you can just plug your iPod into it and put in on the table next to you. I know my husband would like this for Father's Day because he's always got his iPod in his hand. This would be an easy way to hear his music without having to have the laptop close by.

Graduates would love it too because it's fun, it's handy, and what young woman/man doesn't love listening to tunes...often? :) The sound is crystal clear, which is definitely one of the most important things to know.

Product Features


  • ERCD - Expansive Resonator Construction Design to give the best low frequency output
  • Compatibility: all iPods, iPhones, MP3 players, CD players, laptops with 3.5-mm audio socket. (Does not support Bluetooth)
  • Full-bodied, 360-degree sound with modular design. Connect Multiple Speakers for Maximum Sound.
  • Ultra-portable compact size with long-lasting internal chargeable battery
  • One Year Warranty

You can hook up multiple speakers if you like it loud!
And it comes with a handy carrying case.
You can get the Kinivo mini-speaker in a variety of colors, and it comes in a handy carrying case too.


Kinivo BTH410 Hi-Fi Bluetooth Stereo Headphones
Wireless apt-X Music Streaming & Hands-Free Calling

The second Kinivo item I really like for dads or grads is the Kinivo BTH410 Hi-Fi Bluetooth Stereo Headphones.

These are nice and padded on the ears (hubby doesn't like the ones that are not). They also allow you to switch tracks and/or adjust the volume right from the headphones. With a battery time that boasts 8 hours of continuous talk or playback (200 hours in standby mode), these are nice! Nothing's worse than running around with your cordless headphones and having the battery die (I've had that happen on the riding mower, big bummer too!).




If you use them to answer a call, it switches from music to phone (and back) without missing a beat. The buttons for that are located right on the sidebar of the headphones, so once you get used to them, you'll be able to do it without even looking.


Product Features


  • Supports apt-X for wireless high quality digital audio
  • Compatible with Bluetooth enabled music players & A2DP enabled devices such as iPad, iPhone, iPod touch,Android Smart Phones, tablets, etc.
  • Control your music player directly from the headset with functions such as play, pause, next & previous track, and volume
  • Serves as both a wireless music headset and Bluetooth phoneheadset for hands free calling
  • Compact and comfortable design with up to 8 hours of music and talk time.

A great gift for dad or grad, right? :)

You can learn more about these two items, and many other gift options for the dads/grads in your life too, by visiting the Kinivo website. You can also follow them on Facebook and/or Twitter.

Would you get either of these for the dad or grad in your life?

Way cool, but hubby wouldn't have a use for this. We have one flip cell phone. Hubby had the text option turned off. That's how antiquated we are.

Have a fabulous day and weekend Rose. :)

Jen said...

This looks cool! I've never heard of it.

Kristi Maloney said...

These portable speakers are great. (Sorry to hear about your treadmill mishap!) We are all using headphones in this house, and any one of us would love these from Kinivo.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Oh yes, this is totally something my husband would love.

Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle said...

I think being able to daisy chain the speakers together is really cool. Thanks so much for sharing this speaker!

Lindsey Paris said...

Dads can be SO hard to shop for. I have my husband covered, but my in law already has everything and instead of having more hobbies, has to watch my niece and nephew most of the time.

Manzanita said...

If I remember correctly, it was always a problem to know what to buy my father but these are definitely two great ideas.

Kristi said...

I love that little mini speaker... could I wrap it up for myself instead of for my husband... or would that be wrong? :)

Melissa Pezza said...

My husband would love this! He loves to listen to his music, but he's always complaining about the sound on his phone.

Cat said...

These look great. The speaker would be great for my son for graduation.

The speaker sure is a great idea. I can skip this greeting card day though lol

You could wrap it for a Wive's Day gift (I just made that holiday up for you). ;)

Amethyst Moon said...

I like how small this speaker is. It looks good for travelling.

This would be very handy to have in Jason's garage. He is always stealing my wireless speaker, so I need to think about getting him his own!

This is a fantastic gift idea. We're always listening to music, ebooks and podcasts.

Portable speakers are so great to have. My hubs and I didn't even realize we needed them until we got one and WOW, the sound is incredible.

My husband would like the top one. Right now he sticks his cell phone in a cut to get the noise to echo. What a goof!

I have a few Kinivo products that we got last year I think and they're amazing. For being so reasonably priced I thought they wouldn't have been as good but they are.

Veronica Lee said...

The hubs and my eldest son would love this!

Soiree Design Studio said...

That portable speaker looks awesome. I can see my hubby using that while grilling outside or working on his car. Great gift ideas.

Jessica Harlow said...

I'm really loving the idea of these bluetooth headphones for my husband for Father's Day. I know he'd love them. It would help him block out some of the craziness in our house when he gets to sit back and enjoy some tv or video time, which is a rarity! lol

DeDa Studios said...

Nice items - not sure what I am getting hubby for Father's Day - the speaker I know he would really like.

~ Noelle said...

These both sound great.. but the hard part is deciding which I would like more ;)
awesome... oh and I love you can add more speakers if you want it even louder!

My Recent Favorite Books said...

These sound like wonderful gifts!
Have a great weekend!

What a great and small speaker. You could just keep it in your car or desk for occasions

My husband was asking for headphones like this because father's day AND his birthday are coming up. I appreciate your recommendation and will go look into these.

My husband would love this! He always complains about phone volume.

I agree - my grandson would love the speaker for his 8th grade graduation.

This is an excellent gift idea. I know my husband would love this, and so would I. It's also a great gift idea for Grad's too!!

I've been looking for a reason to replace my old Bluetooth speaker. I think you may have given me the perfect excuse with this post. I love this speaker!

That would be a great gift for my husband. He mans the grill during family BBQ's and this would be so great for him while he's flipping burgers.
