In the past couple of years iPod speaker docks have become one of the most replicated and abundant novelty items on the gadget scene. Every major electronics manufacturer has released one, two or even five models. Whether built in alarm clocks, lamps or waterproof bottles, iPod docks offer iPod enjoyment sans earbuds.

The holiday gift giving season means there are iPod speaker docks for sale in virtually every store. I figure if you're not looking for a high quality speaker system to use every day and are in the market for a small set you might as well get a fun one with a funky flair. Take for instance this The Attic Radio Speaker, $98. It combines that classic antique attic feel with audiophile engineering. What's not to love?
