Let this bird speaker 'tweet' your music thanks to Chic Buds

The folks at Chic Buds keep coming up with fun and fancy accessories for an iPhone or any MP3 player and their latest, the Fauvette bejeweled bird speaker is no exception.  Available in several feminine-friendly colors and patterns, and shipped in a metal 'lunchbox' style case, it's an easy gift because no matter what phone or MP3 player a person has, it's compatible.  And cute!  My kids loved the one we got for their music teacher!

The speaker's design is almost a mix between goth/steampunk and modern svarovski charm.  And the form factor is reminiscent of the twitter logo!  And even though the 'Chic Buds' folks are targetting women, I'd be fine with the black or gold model!

The sound is loud and clear, as they claim, thanks to a 2-watt amplified speaker that lasts about four hours on a single charge.  You can recharge using a free USB port.
