Christmas tree decorating isn’t complete without big mugs of mulled cider, hot chocolate topped with marshmallows for the kids, and Christmas music playing in the background. I adore Christmas music, from traditional hymns to a jazzy Winter Wonderland, and electric guitar versions of the New Year Song to ukulele renditions of Frosty the Snowman – I really do love them all!

This year, our Christmas music was played on the Bose SoundLink Mini Bluetooth Speaker, which is small in size and light enough to carry all over the house, but huge in sound! We couldn’t believe the deep bass and the full sound that came out of that tiny little speaker! Here I share with you my favourite Christmas albums and songs!

David Ian’s Vintage Christmas & Vintage Christmas Wonderland are both required listening. The songs are relaxed and swingy, perfect for cocktail parties or just cozying up with a loved one in front of the fireplace.

The Christmas EP by Daniela Andrade is perfect coffee shop music – just a girl with the sweetest voice and her acoustic guitar. A Very She & Him Christmas is one of those anticipated albums that I didn’t love at first, but have fallen in love with over time. Love Zooey Deschanel or not, she has a great old-school voice.

Holidays Rule is a fun-filled and upbeat collection that features artists like Rufus Wainwright, Holly Golightly, The Shins, and Fun. If you’re a Jack Johnson fan, you will love This Warm December, Volumes One and Two, a compilation of Brushfire Records artists.

The Killers releases a new original Christmas single, complete with music video, every single year! Even if you’re not a fan (I’m a huge fan!) you have to give it a listen. I’m sure everybody  and their mother already owns the Michael Bublé Christmas Album, but I’m mentioning it anyway! And here are some Christmas songs that you have to give a listen to:

  • Dragonette – Merry Xmas (Says Your Text Message)
  • Sufjan Stevens – Christmas Woman
  • Tracey Thorn – In The Cold, Cold Night
  • Coldplay – Christmas Lights
  • Mindy Gledhill – Winter Moon
  • Fiona Apple – Frosty the Snowman

Listening to all my favourite Christmas music on the Bose SoundLink Mini was such a pleasure. The speaker easily links up to my iPhone using Bluetooth technology, there was no passcode necessary and it never dropped the connection. The size of the speaker is very small, and I love that it’s portable. It has a small charging stand that it sits on, and the battery charge lasts a long time, but it’s easily picked up and moved around the whole house. It’s even great for travel as the charger can be plugged right into the speaker, no charging stand necessary.

To show you how small it is, I lined it up with an iPhone 5S. I love the minimal look of the speaker, it blends right in with its’ surroundings but still provides amazing sound no matter where we place it. Singing along with my favourite holiday tunes was easy and fun with the Bose SoundLink Mini speaker.

    I’d like one of these for my phone, the kids listen to a lot of music on there but it just isn’t very loud

    Bose has to be the best. I had this system in one of my cars and I loved it. I enjoy all types of Christmas music and I would love to listen to it on Bose. Thank you for sharing

    I just love the rustic look of the antlers. The boots are an absolutely adorable idea as well.

    I love to listen to the big band era music at Christmas but I think I will look into your music and see if we can’t find a new song.

    That is a great looking speaker. I also really like that little red fox ornament.

    At Christmas, I like hearing the oldies from Sinatra, Dean Martin, etc. I think it reminds of my childhood in the late 60s/early 70s.

    Something old and something new….old classics mixed with modern hits. It’s the best of both!

    My favorite Christmas album is by Andy Williams. I grew up with it and when I moved out, I purchased the CD so I can still listen to it!

    I love putting on Christmas music when I stay getting ready for the holiday. I have to admit, I have not heard the Dragonette – Merry Xmas (Says Your Text Message) before.

    I love having Christmas music playing in the car and in my home, especially when I am baking and wrapping presents. This is a great assortment of music.
