EntertainingMy Christmas Playlist with Tivoli Audio December 16, 2015This is a sponsored post written on behalf of Tivoli Audio for IZEA. All opinions are 100% my own. I love Christmas decorations not just because they’re pretty, but because of the magic and wonder they bring into the home. But they can only go so far with creating a cozy Christmas home. Nothing rings in the cheer like Christmas carols and I leave it playing around the clock this time of year. I love Christmas carols so much. They are by far my favorite kind of music. I’ve been singing Christmas songs to Rosie all year as lullabies and every fall, I have to fight myself to not listen to any before Halloween. I told y’all Chris has long called me an elf? Well, elves listen to lots and lots of Christmas songs. I usually just keep music playing from Pandora on my phone. My husband loves music and has it playing all the time, but he really prefers speakers or stereos. Playing music from your phone just doesn’t fill your home like it would coming from a stereo. I was so excited when Tivoli Model One reached out to me about their Model One Bluetooth AM/FM radios because they really meet both of our needs. First of all, they look super stylish compared to most radios. I loved this one with the walnut box and cream front. It fits perfectly into our decor! And I absolutely love the vintage feel of it. It’s really reminiscent of an old radio, which look so cool, but it has all of the modern capabilities. Y’all know me…vintage, wood, and white and I’m good. Others that we’ve had I either didn’t want out at all or I wanted them “hidden,” because they really took away from a room. Since we got this, I’ve had the music playing around the clock and it really fills our home with the joyful sound. Nothing gets me in the Christmas spirit quite like Christmas music playing throughout the house. My favorite part about it is that it has both AM/FM and Bluetooth capabilities. We’ve had some other Bluetooth speakers before. They were smaller and the sound wasn’t as good as it is with this one. We use the Bluetooth capability and our phones to play music most of the time, which I love because it’s so easy! I usually have my phone nearby, so I can adjust the volume, change songs, etc. straight from there. With our open concept, you really can hear the music throughout the house, so it’s nice that I don’t have to walk to the radio to make changes and you can completely customize your playlist. But I do love that it has AM/FM options too. There’s a great local radio station here that plays Christmas around the clock in December. I love having the option to play it too! The radio is available without the Bluetooth capabilities, but I love the flexibility of creating your own playlist. My husband is so smitten with this thing. He’s already used it way more than I do. If I don’t already have it playing the minute he comes in from work, he immediately turns it on. I’m beating myself up now that I didn’t save this for him for a Christmas gift! It really is the perfect gift for someone like him who seriously has music playing anytime they’re awake. But I am glad that we’ve had it to enjoy during this holiday season! I’m one of those who falls in love with certain songs and wants to hear them over and over. I have many Christmas favorites, but these five are finding themselves on constant repeat this year. They’re the star of my Christmas playlist. I am usually only into classic and old Christmas songs. Very few new songs or remakes have hit home with me in the past. But this year, I’ve fallen in love with a few new ones. Chris Tomlin’s He Shall Reign Forevermore tops my list and it might be my favorite song I’ve ever heard. It’s so powerful and moving. I have a feeling that song and this radio will be playing long after the Christmas decorations have come down! The Tivoli Model One radio is available online and you can also see a full list of local dealers on the site. What are y’all’s favorites? I’m always looking for new carols and I’d love to hear what songs get you in the spirit!
