This Lego-look speaker will pump some sound for the iPod Classic, iPod Nano, iPod Touch and iPod Mini. The USB-charged speaker blocks come in red, blue, green, white, black yellow and pink. No details on how powerful it is, but probably enough to annoy someone in the next cubicle over. At around $20, it’s an idea for the random people on your list.
